To clarify the difference between the fetus that is small for gestational age and the fetus with true intrauterine growth restriction, we undertook a retrospective study of singleton fetuses who had fetal weight estimation and umbilical artery Doppler velocity studies within 2 weeks of their delivery. Fetuses were divided into four categories on the basis of sonographic results from their last examination. Statistical comparisons of neonatal outcome were made for the four groups, which totaled 5...

Objective: To assess the prevalence of head circumference to abdomen circumference (HC/AC) asymmetry among small for gestational age (SGA) fetuses, and to determine the likelihood of adverse outcomes among asymmetric and symmetric SGA infants compared with their appropriate for gestational age (AGA) counterparts. Methods: In a retrospective cohort study, we analyzed consecutive live-born singletons of women who had antepartum sonography within 4 weeks of delivery and delivered between January 1,...

Objective聽To define cut-off limits for individually adjustable fetal weight standards for the detection of intrauterine growth restriction. Design聽Retrospective study, with the outcome measures small-for-gestational age (SGA) birth weight, operative delivery for fetal distress, umbilical artery pH < 7.15, and admission to the neonatal intensive care unit. Subjects and Methods聽Two hundred and fifteen women considered to be at increased risk of uteroplacental insufficiency were recruited to a stud...
The aim of this paper is to determine whether antenatal detection of small-forgestational-age (SGA) babies influences 2-year outcomes. All low-birth-weight (<2500g) infants born in South-East Thames region, England from September 1, 1992 to August 31, 1993 were identified at birth. Antenatal suspicion and ultrasound assessment confirming growth restriction was categorized as detection of SGA. Postnatally, infants were classified as SGA if they had a birth weight for given gestation below the 10t...

Objective: To determine if measuring fetal abdominal fat antenatally using ultrasound can predict fetal growth restriction (FGR). Methods: One hundred thirty-seven unselected women with singleton pregnancies had serial ultrasound scans at 20, 26, 31, and 38 weeks鈥 gestation. Subcutaneous fat in the fetal abdomen was measured using the same section as the abdominal circumference (AC). Outcome measures were birth weight, neonatal morbidity, and ponderal index. Results: Infants with subcutaneous fa...

Objective To investigate the association between adverse perinatal outcomes and abnormal elevations of serum marker levels (alpha-fetoprotein [AFP] and free 尾 -hCG) or a false-positive screen for Down syndrome. Methods Pregnancy outcome information was available for 5885 Taiwanese women under 35 years of age who had second-trimester maternal serum screening for Down syndrome, using AFP and free 尾 -hCG, and delivered a chromosomally normal fetus. Those with AFP at least 2.0 multiples of the media...

Objectives To establish the relation between fetal abdominal circumference and birthweight in a large population of fetuses; to identify whether the error in estimating birthweight by abdominal circumference varied with the magnitude of abdominal circumference; and to establish whether adding femur length to abdominal circumference caused a clinically important reduction of error in predicting birthweight. Design A retrospective study. Setting The ultrasound department of a teaching maternity ho...

Objective To assess the nitric oxide synthase activity in placentas from women with either normal or abnormal Doppler ultrasound umbilical artery flow velocity waveforms who delivered by elective cesarean. Methods This prospective observational study involved 16 women admitted either for elective cesarean for standard obstetric indications (with normal umbilical artery Doppler waveform studies, n = 8) or with evidence of fetal omaternal complications of pregnancy (with abnormal umbilical artery ...

Fetal growth restriction (FGR) is an important cause of increased morbidity and mortality during the perinatal period (e.g., stillbirth, prematurity, asphyxia and neonatal complication) and in childhood (e.g., growth failure, neurological impairment and behavioral disorders) (Schauseil-Zipf et al. 1989, Allen 1984, Wienerroither et al. 2001). Furthermore, during recent years, several large-scale epidemiological studies in England and in Sweden have tended to suggest a relation between low birth ...
