  To utilize obstetric risk factors and perinatal outcomes of pregnancies complicated by umbilical cord prolapse. Birth records of 76 cases with umbilical cord prolapse and 760 randomly selected controls were reviewed retrospectively. Statistical analysis was performed using logistic regression models. Prolapse of the umbilical cord complicated 0.32% (n = 76) of all deliveries included in the study (n = 23818). Multiparity was more common in patients with umbilical cord prolapse (88.2-58.3% , p< 0.0001). Umbilical cord prolapse occurred in breech presentation in 17 cases (22.4%) and in transverse presentation in 3 of the cases (9.2%). The occurrence of breech presentation among the control cases was 1.2% and of the transverse lie was 0.9%. Fetuses with umbilical cord prolapse had lower fetal weight; Particularly, fetal weight less than 2500 g was a significant risk factor (9.2-3.9%, p< 0.05). We also found that Premature Rupture Of Membranes (PORM) (OR = 0.92; 95%,CI = 0.81-0.99), and polyhydramnios (OR = 0.91; 95%, CI = 0.84-0.97) were risk factors for umbilical cord prolapse. The newborns that were delivered after umbilical cord prolapse graded lower Apgar scores less than 7 at 5 min (9.2-0.6%, p< 0.0001). Abnormal fetal presentation, multiparity, low birth weight, polyhydramnios and Premature Rupture Of Membranes(PORM), are risk factors for umbilical cord prolapse.

  This study was conducted among workers of an Iranian zinc industry with the objective of determination of the prevalence rate of Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) among production workers. In this study, all 6 production units of the factory were studied. In each unit, 50% of the workers were randomly selected and included in the study. A total of 98 workers participated. The nordic musculoskeletal questionnaire was used as a collecting data tool to study the prevalence of MSDs. The vast majority of the study population (77.6%) had experienced some form of symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders during the last 12 months. The highest prevalence was reported in the lower back (47.9%) and upper back (34.6%). MSDs had occurred with a high rate among zinc workers. Corrective measures for reducing risk level seemed essential. Elimination of awkward postures and manual materials handling in the workplace were recommended.
