It was found that after log transformation, amniotic fluid volume had a uniform variability over 8 to 43 weeks' gestation, and the 95% confidence interval covered the range of 1/2.57 to 2.57 times the mean volume at any given gestational age. Expand
Do survival and morbidity of very-low-birth-weight infants vary according to the primary pregnancy complication that results in preterm delivery?
The principal pregnancy complication that led to preterm delivery significantly influenced predischarge morbidity but not the predischarge survival of live-born infants. Expand
Ultrasonographic measurement of fetal nuchal skin to screen for chromosomal abnormalities
Nuchal skin thickness is a useful noninvasive measurement to screen for Down syndrome but does not help to identify fetuses with other chromosomal abnormalities. Expand
A Comparison of Pre‐Discharge Survival and Morbidity in Singleton and Twin Very Low Birth Weight Infants
It is suggested that VLBW twins do not suffer greater morbidity or mortality than do singletons of comparable birth weight and gestational age and actually develop less bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Expand
The very low birthweight infant: maternal complications leading to preterm birth, placental lesions, and intrauterine growth.
Decidual vasculopathy (characteristic of PIH) and chronic intrauterine inflammation underlie the complications of many normotensive VLBW infants and depend on the presence or absence of maternal hypertension. Expand
Relationship between fetal biophysical activities and umbilical cord blood gas values.
The data suggest that the first manifestations of fetal hypoxemia and acidemia are nonreactive nonstress test results and loss of fetal breathing; in advanced acidemia, Hypoxemia, and hypercapnia fetal movements and fetal tone are compromised. Expand
Neonatal Effects and Serum Cortisol Levels After Multiple Courses of Maternal Corticosteroids
Serum cortisol levels either were independent of the number of courses or total dose of corticosteroids given or, in a subpopulation, were associated with increasing levels with increasing doses, suggesting that there is no suppressive effect with repeated dosing. Expand
Transverse cerebellar diameter measurements in twin pregnancies and the effect of intrauterine growth retardation.
It is suggested that intrauterine growth retardation may affect cerebellar growth in twins and increase linearly with gestational age. Expand
Placenta Previa Is Not an Independent Risk Factor for a Small For Gestational Age Infant
The results suggest that the prenatal diagnosis of an SGA fetus in a pregnancy complicated by placenta previa should not simply be attributed to abnormal placental implantation, and routine ultrasonic examinations for growth in pregnancies complicated by Placenta Previa are not indicated. Expand
