OBJECTIVE We sought to evaluate the association between fetal cerebroplacental ratio (CPR) and intrapartum fetal compromise and admission to the neonatal unit (NNU) in term pregnancies. STUDY DESIGN This was a retrospective cohort study in a single tertiary referral center over a 14-year period from 2000 through 2013. The umbilical artery pulsatility(More)
BACKGROUND Left-lateral tilt position is used to reduce assumed aortocaval compression by the pregnant uterus. METHODS Magnetic resonance images of 10 singleton parturients at full term and 10 healthy nonpregnant women were obtained for measurement of the abdominal aorta and inferior vena cava volume between the L1-L2 disk and L3-L4 disk levels in both(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether small- and appropriate-for-gestational-age (SGA and AGA) term fetuses with a low cerebroplacental ratio (CPR) have worse neonatal acid-base status than those with normal CPR. METHODS This was a retrospective study of 2927 term fetuses divided into groups according to birth-weight centile and CPR multiple of the median. The(More)
We defined “fetal abdominal protuberance ratio” as the ratio between the abdominal circumference (AC) and the distance between the anterior border of the fetal aorta and the posterior surface of the fetal skin (AO-P) and measured it in a total of 358 fetuses between 13 and 40 weeks. The AC and AO-P diameters both grew with gestational age but the increment(More)
Objectives. To assess the outcome of fetuses with isolated short femur detected at 19-41 weeks and determine to what extent this incidental finding should be a cause of concern in fetuses with a normal previous follow-up. Methods. 156 fetuses with isolated short femur were compared with a control group of 637 fetuses with normal femur length. FL values were(More)
OBJECTIVES It has recently been reported that fetuses with achondroplasia have a wider than expected femoral proximal diaphysis-metaphysis angle (femoral angle). The aim of this case-control study was to investigate this finding. METHODS Cases with confirmed achondroplasia (n = 6), small-for-gestational-age fetuses (n = 70) and a group of normal fetuses(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether changes in the middle cerebral artery (MCA), umbilical artery (UA) and cerebroplacental ratio (CPR) Doppler indices at term might be used to identify those appropriate-for-gestational-age (AGA) fetuses that are failing to reach their growth potential (FRGP). METHODS This was a retrospective cohort study of data obtained in a(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the possible progression of intrauterine devices (IUDs) to a lower or upper position in women. MATERIAL AND METHODS Thirty-two lowly placed T-shaped IUDs in women with 0-3 children were examined with transvaginal ultrasonography after 2 months of insertion in order to assess the possible progression of the IUDs. Also, the IUDs inserted(More)
OBJECTIVE A low cerebro-placental ratio (CPR) at term suggests the existence of failure to reach growth potential (FRGP) with a higher risk of poor neonatal acid-base status. This study aimed to evaluate whether similar findings were also seen in the vertebral artery (vertebro-placental ratio, VPR), supplying 30% of the cerebral flow. METHODS We studied(More)
