Summary To determine if in vitro secretion of the decidual peptides insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I), prolactin or insulin-like growth factor binding protein 1 (IGFBP-1) correlates with infant birthweight in uncomplicated, term human pregnancies, decidua from 45 pregnancies with normally distributed birthweights was cultured in defined medium for 24 h. IGF-I, prolactin and IGFBP-1 concentrations in the culture medium were measured by radioimmunoassay. Neither infant birthweight nor a normali...

Summary Intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) is an important cause of small stature in children presenting to paediatric endocrinologists. IUGR has to be differentiated from familial (‘constitutional’) short stature, where the growth deficit is genetically determined and/or induced by smallness of the mother (maternal constraint). Intrinsic fetal anomalies such as chromosomal abnormalities, primary growth failure syndromes, congenital infections and congenital anomalies are of equal importance...

Abstract Uterine artery flow velocity waveforms were measured by continuous-wave Doppler ultrasound in 15 normal pregnant women studied from midgestation until term. Results were analyzed by calculation of the pulsatility index and the systolic/diastolic blood pressure ratio. Both indices decreased from 16 to 20 weeks (indicating a lowering of resistance) and thereafter remained stable until term. Resistance was lower when waveforms were recorded directly over the placenta or from the uterine ar...

0 NLY WITHIN the last 25 years has the historical observation (survival is less likely in babies born too small) evolved into the concept of a poorer prognosis for babies with impaired growth. In the late 17th and 18th centuries, the most renowned obstetricians such as Mauriceau in France and Snellie in England estimated birth weights as high as 15 to 16 lb. A review of this historical literature by Cone’ notes that weights and measures were established for purposes of trade. One could wonder if...

Abstract Umbilical artery Doppler studies were performed on the day of delivery in 15 singleton preterm pregnancies. In each case the fetus was significantly growth retarded on ultrasound examination and the attending obstetrician had made a decision to deliver the patient of the infant. Eight women had severe preeclampsia, three had mild chronic hypertension, and in four there was no recognized maternal disorder. Doppler studies were analyzed by use of the pulsatility index and the A B ratio. I...
