OBJECTIVE Conservative management of intrahepatic obstetric cholestasis is associated with a high stillbirth rate despite monitoring of fetal well-being with non-stress test and amniotic fluid volume assessment. Most cases of stillbirth are associated with meconium passage. We prospectively evaluated the effect of a management protocol inclusive of(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess which factors independently affect survival in infants weighing 750g or less. STUDY DESIGN We reviewed the obstetric, neonatal, and placental pathology information of all non-malformed neonates with birth weight of 750g or less from January 1998 to December 2002. Logistic regression analysis was used to control for the effect of(More)
OBJECTIVE The study was undertaken to assess whether prenatal Doppler variables can identify cases of fetal growth restriction (FGR) approaching term who are at risk for adverse neonatal outcome. STUDY DESIGN From a cohort of FGR cases delivered at >or=34 weeks, fetal biometry and pulsatility indices (PI) of fetal arteries obtained less than 2 weeks(More)
OBJECTIVE We have investigated the use of uterine artery Doppler waveform analysis in growth restricted fetuses delivered at > or =34 weeks. STUDY DESIGN Included in the study were all consecutive euploid non-malformed singleton fetuses with accurate dating diagnosed as growth restricted (sonographic abdominal circumference <10th percentile) between(More)
OBJECTIVE Absent end-diastolic blood flow in the umbilical artery identifies growth-restricted fetuses at high risk of perinatal mortality and severe morbidity. We explored antenatal variables predictive of perinatal mortality or severe neonatal morbidity in such fetuses. STUDY DESIGN We accessed a cohort of 39 singleton, non-malformed, growth-restricted(More)
