Assessment fetal behavior gave a promising opportunity to understand the hidden function of the developmental pathway of the fetal central nervous system. After the assessment of normal neurobehavioral development by four-dimensional (4D) ultrasound, attempts have been made to identify functional characteristics of the fetus that predict a range of(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess differences of fetal behavior in normal and high-risk pregnancies. METHODS In the 1-year period (1 January 2007-31 December 2007), four-dimensional ultrasound has been used to assess Kurjak antenatal neurodevelopmental test (KANET) in low- and high-risk pregnancies after randomization in prospective longitudinal cohort study. Based on(More)
AIMS To determine whether the brain disturbances develop in late-onset intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) before blood flow redistribution towards the fetal brain (detected by Doppler measurements in the middle cerebral artery and umbilical artery). Further, to evaluate predictive values of Doppler arterial indices and umbilical cord blood gases and pH(More)
Children cerebral palsy (CCP) encompasses a group of nonprogessive and noninfectious conditions, which cause light, moderate, and severe deviations in neurological development. Diagnosis of CCP is set mostly by the age of 3 years. The fact that a large number of cerebral damage occurs prenatally and the fact that early intervention in cases of neurological(More)
UNLABELLED Cerebral palsy (CP) is a term encompassing a group of nonprogressive, noncontagious conditions causing mild, moderate or severe disorders of neurodevelopment. OBJECTIVE Objective of this study was to analyze the possible prenatal etiological factors for the emergence of neurodevelopmental disorders (NDs) and CP from the medical records of 100(More)
Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) can be described as condition in which fetus fails to reach his potential growth. It is common diagnosis in obstetrics, and carries an increased risk of perinatal mortality and morbidity. Moreover, IUGR has lifelong implications on health, especially on neurological outcome. There is a need for additional neurological(More)
OBJECTIVE In order to more accurately assess fetal neurological status in five fetuses with severe intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR), combined assessment of their hemodynamics and motor activity was undertaken in this study. METHOD Hemodynamic changes in the placental and fetal cerebral vessels were evaluated using the umbilical artery resistance(More)
In this case report, we present prenatal and postnatal neurological evaluation of a fetus and newborn from pregnancy complicated with intrauterine growth restriction, fetal hypoxemia, and preterm labor. Despite unfavorable intrauterine conditions, this premature infant showed normal early neurological development that was verified not only by postnatal(More)
Neurodevelopment disorders including cerebral palsy are a group of non-progressive and noninfectious diseases characterized by different levels of abnormal neurodevelopment. Most often, diagnosis is made at the age of 5 years or later. It has been recognized that most of the cerebral damages appear prenatally. This fact stimulated researchers all over the(More)
