Radiological Diagnostics of Frequent Interruption of Pregnancy as a Primary Factor of Breast Carcinomas

Halit Ymeri, Serbeze Kabashi, Nagib Elshani, Ilir Ahmetgjekaj.

Today, in Post-war Kosovo, there is an increase of malignant processes in all organs, affecting both men and women. Objective of the project: to evaluate the impact of artificial pregnancy interruption in presentation of breast carcinomas arising in women, as well as the possibility to prevent this phenomenon. Material and methods: In the University Clinical Centre of Kosova various radiological diagnostic methods have been used, such as: ultrasonography, mammography, and galactography, which proved to be very important tool in detecting the ductal carcinomas. Data-sources, used for this research were questionnaires, which contained also a question related to the number of artificially interrupted pregnancies, showed great discrepancies between the number of abortions and arising breast carcinomas. Percentages are calculated based on statistic parameters. Tests verification was done for the reliability of 95% and 99%. For this presentation tables and graphics were used. Results: Out of the overall group of 149 patients, 119 or 79.9% were patients examined during the time period of 3 years, with different number of abortions. Whereas, 30 patients or 20.27% experienced other (non-malignant) changes, such as: mastitis, cysts, fibroma’s, etc. With 3 or more abortions, we had 53 patients (44.5%), with two artificial abortions we had 39 patients (or 32.8%). Finally, with one artificial abortion we had 27 patients (or 22.7%). The predominant age-group was 31-40 years, with three or more abortions, but it is important to stress that young age-group of 21-30 years was also considerably affected. The age-group of 41-50 years was less affected. As per residence-based criterion, we obtained other figures and percentages. In women of age 21-30 years, living in a city, we had a number of 37 patients with 3 or more abortions, in addition to 28 patients of age-group 31-40 years with two abortions and 19 patients with one abortion, belonging to the age-group of 41- 50 years. Women residing in the villages had less abortions per age-group; there were 15 patients belonging to the age-group of 21-30 years, who had 3 or more artificial abortions, whereas 11 patients of the age-group 31-40 years had two abortions, and within the agegroup of 41-50 years, we had 8 patients with one abortion. As a result, the criterion based on place of residence–a city or village halves the number of patients, in favor of the city, as a place of residence. Sequentially, the number of 20 cases or 37.7% belonging to the agegroup of 21-30 years, having three abortions, is statistically very large. The age-group of 31-40 years corresponds to the number of 27 cases or 50.9% of cases with two abortions. The age-group of 41-50 years or 11.3% had 6 cases with 3 or more abortions. The agegroup of 21-30 years or 38.7% with 3, two and one abortion corresponded to the number of 46 cases. There were 53 cases or 44.5% belonging to the age-group of 31-40 years. In addition, there were 53 p
