In this Review we aim to provide up-to-date and evidence-based answers to the common questions regarding the diagnosis of isolated mild fetal ventriculomegaly (VM). A literature search was performed to identify all reports of antenatal VM in the English language literature. In addition, reference lists of articles identified using the search were(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the prevalence of cord entanglement and perinatal outcome in a large series of monoamniotic twin pregnancies and to review the recent literature on similar published large series. METHODS Prospective observational study of all prenatally detected cases of monoamniotic twin pregnancies during an 8-year period in a tertiary fetal(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the relationship of first-trimester uterine artery Doppler indices with subsequent delivery of small-for-gestational age (SGA) neonates or intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR). METHODS This was a prospective study in which uterine artery Doppler assessment was performed at 11-14 weeks in 3010 women with singleton pregnancies.(More)
OBJECTIVE Being small for gestational age (SGA) or having fetal growth restriction (FGR) may be associated with poorer neurodevelopmental outcomes compared to being appropriate for gestational age (AGA). The aim of this paper was to evaluate the existence and magnitude of decrease in neurodevelopmental scores in SGA and FGR infants born at term from a(More)
OBJECTIVE Chronic intervillositis of the placenta is known to be associated with poor reproductive outcome and a high risk of recurrence. The aims of the present study were to quantify the risk of recurrence of chronic intervillositis in subsequent pregnancies, to explore if there are possible interventions and to assess the success of interventions.

OBJECTIVE To assess systematically the performance of prenatal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in diagnosing the presence, degree and topography of disorders of invasive placentation and to explore the role of the different MRI signs in predicting these disorders. The diagnostic accuracy of ultrasound and MRI in the detection of invasive placentation was(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the relationship between first-trimester uterine artery Doppler measurements and the development of term and preterm pre-eclampsia. METHODS This prospective study of uterine artery Doppler findings at 11-14 weeks in 3058 singleton pregnancies included 57 and 33 cases of term and preterm pre-eclampsia, respectively. RESULTS The(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify specific estimates and predictors of neonatal morbidity and mortality in early onset fetal growth restriction due to placental dysfunction. METHODS Prospective multicenter study of prenatally diagnosed growth-restricted liveborn neonates of less than 33 weeks of gestational age. Relationships between perinatal variables (arterial and(More)
OBJECTIVES Failure to visualise the fetal nasal bones at 11-14 weeks of gestation is associated with a significant increase in the risk for trisomy 21. However, it is not known whether the ethnic origin of the mother has any effect on the fetal profile and the prevalence of this marker. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING London Teaching Hospital.

OBJECTIVE To determine the accuracy of ultrasound at 11-14 weeks' gestation in the diagnosis of chorionicity in twin pregnancy. METHODS This was a retrospective observational study of data obtained between 1999 and 2010. At the first-trimester routine ultrasound scan, chorionicity was assigned according to the number of placental masses and T or λ-signs(More)
