Abstract
Purpose Birth weight (BW) is crucial for surgical outcome in children with left heart obstruction (LHO). Head circumference (HC) is believed to correlate with the neurocognitive outcome in LHO. Our aim was to investigate the application of international standardized growth charts from the INTERGROWTH-21st project in comparison to customized growth charts in fetal LHO.

Purpose Children with congenital heart disease (CHD) are known to have impaired neurodevelopment possibly influenced by altered cerebroplacental hemodynamics antenatally. We compared fetomaternal Doppler patterns in different CHD groups with published normative values during gestation. Materials and Methods Retrospective cohort study consisting of 248 CHD fetuses. Subgroups were generated according to the expected ascending aorta oxygen saturation: low portion of high oxygenated umbilical venous...

Purpose Altered cerebral hemodynamics are involved in changes in head biometry in fetuses with congenital heart disease (CHD). We compared head growth in different CHD groups with published normative values and investigated whether CHD groups differ from each other in terms of head circumference (HC) development over gestational age (GA). Materials and Methods Retrospective cohort study consisting of 248 CHD fetuses. Subgroups were generated according to the expected ascending aorta oxygen satur...

Objectives: Congenital heart disease (CHD) has been associated with reduced fetal head circumference (HC), although the underlying pathophysiology remains undetermined. We aimed to define trends in fetal growth and cerebroplacental Doppler flow, and to investigate their relationship, in fetuses with CHD. Methods: This was a retrospective study in two fetal medicine units in The Netherlands. We included all fetuses with CHD in whom Doppler flow patterns (middle cerebral artery (MCA) pulsatility i...

OBJECTIVE: To develop fetal and neonatal population weight charts. The rationale was that, while reference ranges of estimated fetal weight (EFW) are representative of the whole population, the traditional approach of deriving birth-weight (BW) charts is misleading, because a large proportion of babies born preterm arise from pathological pregnancy. We propose that the reference population for BW charts, as in the case of EFW charts, should comprise all babies at a given gestational age, includi...

Objectives: There is evidence that in fetuses with congenital heart defects (CHDs), head growth is affected. However, scanty data are available on longitudinal growth patterns of other biometric parameters such as abdominal circumference (AC) and femur length (FL). The aim was to evaluate growth patterns in fetuses with isolated CHD diagnosed prenatally in different categories of lesions. Methods: Fetuses with isolated CHD seen between 2008 and 2013 at the Fetal Medicine Unit of 2 tertiary refer...

The hybrid strategy is an alternative to the traditional Norwood procedure for initial palliation of infants with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) who are deemed to be at high surgical risk. Numerous single-center studies have compared the two procedures, showing similar early outcomes, although the cohort sizes are likely insufficiently powered to detect significant differences. The current meta-analysis aims to explore the early morbidity and mortality associated with the hybrid compared...

CONTEXT: Brain injury during prenatal and preoperative postnatal life might play a major role in neurodevelopmental impairment in infants with congenital heart disease (CHD) who require corrective or palliative surgery during infancy. A systematic review of cerebral findings during this period in relation to neurodevelopmental outcome (NDO), however, is lacking. OBJECTIVE: To assess the association between prenatal and postnatal preoperative cerebral findings and NDO in infants with CHD who requ...

Objective To determine the accuracy of fetal and newborn growth charts for the prediction of small-for-gestational age (SGA) at birth (birth weight < 10th centile). Methods This was a prospective cohort study performed within a UK specialist fetal growth clinic. A total of 105 consecutive pregnant women referred for a suspected SGA fetus were included. All pregnancies were managed according to a standard protocol using estimated fetal weight (EFW) plotted on customized Gestation Related Optimal ...

To determine the longitudinal behavior of fetal biometric measures and cerebroplacental hemodynamics throughout gestation in fetuses with congenital heart disease (CHD).Fetal biometry and Doppler hemodynamics (uterine artery (UtA), umbilical artery (UA) and fetal middle cerebral artery (MCA)) were measured serially in a cohort of consecutive fetuses diagnosed with CHD. Evaluations were made at various time points, from diagnosis (20-25 weeks) to delivery, with at least two measurements per fetus...

Background —Congenital heart defects (CHD) have been associated with placental anomalies. The nature and the consequences of this association remain poorly understood. We aimed to estimate the associations between all major subtypes of CHD and placental weight at birth as well as the association between placental weight and measures of both overall and cerebral growth in fetuses with CHD. Methods —We included all 924,422 liveborn Danish singletons, 1997-2011. CHD was present in 7,569. We compare...
