We intended to compare the prevalence of various morbidities
amongst males and females and to assess the morbidities
encountered by them along the lines of other variables like marital status, literacy and age.
Amongst all, a few especially reproductive tract infections and sexually transmitted infections (RTIs/STIs) may turn out to be fatal if not treated properly.1 Reproductive morbidities
can be divided into three types namely obstetric, gynecological and contraceptive morbidities
The population-based retrospective cohort study compared age-specific rates of severe maternal morbidities
and mortality among 828,269 pregnancies in Washington state between 2003 and 2013.
There were 82 documented morbidities
related to the management of abdominal trauma.
observed are presented in Table-2 below.
Therefore knowledge about pattern and frequency of morbidities
is useful in developing intervention programs.
Some hospitais have proposed late-preterm initiatives that include education of all medical team members in the well-baby nursery and parents on the morbidities
of late-preterm infants, as well as having special markings or tags on the late-preterm infant's cribs as a reminder of the need for these extended assessments (Corso & DeButy, 2011; Stoltz, Straughn, & Kupsick 2011).
Dieter Klaus and colleagues said that people whose intake of dietary sodium chloride is in excess of 6 g per day increase their risk of cardiovascular morbidities
The 155 older patients--aged 60-76 years--had a 6% mortality after 5 years of follow-up, and another 14% had had serious morbidities
that delayed their discharge from the hospital follwing surgery, such as wound infections, bowel obstructions, or cardiovascular events.

Moreover, many of the "new morbidities
" of childhood--intellectual impairments, behavioral problems, asthma, and preterm birth--are linked with remarkably low-level exposures to environmental pollutants [Wisborg et al.
We had an overall morbidity rate of 40%; although this figure seems relatively high, it is comparable with that of large series published previously.9,15 The main causes of morbidity in our study included wound infections (16%), bile leak (5.3%), intra-abdominal collections (5.3%), pulmonary complications (9.3%) and ascites (6.7%).These morbidities
prolonged the postoperative recovery period, but were successfully managed conservatively.
