Fetal Brain Doppler to Predict Cesarean Delivery for Nonreassuring Fetal Status in Term Small-for-Gestational-Age Fetuses
Evaluation of brain Doppler indices before labor induction discriminates small-for-gestational-age fetuses at high risk of cesarean delivery for nonreassuring fetal status and neonatal acidosis. Expand
Longitudinal changes in uterine, umbilical and fetal cerebral Doppler indices in late‐onset small‐for‐gestational age fetuses
To determine the longitudinal trends and rates of conversion of normal to abnormal uterine (UtA), umbilical (UA) and middle cerebral artery (MCA) Doppler velocimetry throughout the third trimester inExpand
Neurobehavioral outcomes in preterm, growth‐restricted infants with and without prenatal advanced signs of brain‐sparing
To evaluate the neurobehavioral outcomes of preterm infants with intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR), with and without prenatal advanced brain‐sparing.
Usefulness of myocardial tissue Doppler vs conventional echocardiography in the evaluation of cardiac dysfunction in early-onset intrauterine growth restriction.
Tissue Doppler imaging demonstrated the presence of both systolic and diastolic cardiac dysfunction in intrauterine growth restriction and may constitute a more sensitive tool than conventional echocardiography to evaluate cardiac function by tissue Dopplers imaging. Expand
Evaluation of Conventional Doppler Fetal Cardiac Function Parameters: E/A Ratios, Outflow Tracts, and Myocardial Performance Index
The myocardial performance index (MPI) also provides information on systolic and diastolic cardiac function and is an early and consistent marker of cardiac dysfunction which becomes altered in early stages of chronic hypoxia or in cases with cardiac overload such as in twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. Expand
Tissue Doppler echocardiographic markers of cardiac dysfunction in small-for-gestational age fetuses.
It is found that a proportion of SGA fetuses have true late-onset intrauterine growth restriction, which is associated with subclinical cardiac dysfunction, as previously described for early-onsets intrauterines growth restriction. Expand
Middle versus anterior cerebral artery Doppler for the prediction of perinatal outcome and neonatal neurobehavior in term small‐for‐gestational‐age fetuses with normal umbilical artery Doppler
To evaluate whether anterior cerebral artery (ACA) Doppler ultrasonography is superior to middle cerebral artery (MCA) Doppler in the prediction of perinatal outcome and neonatal neurobehavior inExpand
Incidence and clinical implications of early inadvertent septostomy after laser therapy for twin–twin transfusion syndrome
To evaluate the incidence and clinical outcome of inadvertent septostomy after fetoscopic laser therapy for twin–twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) and, particularly, to explore its association withExpand
Targeted array comparative genomic hybridisation (array CGH) identifies genomic imbalances associated with isolated congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH)
It is proposed that a significant number of isolated CDH cases have an underlying genetic cause, and that a subset of these result from copy number variations (CNVs) identifiable by array CGH. Expand
Normal Reference Ranges from 11 to 41 Weeks’ Gestation of Fetal Left Modified Myocardial Performance Index by Conventional Doppler with the Use of Stringent Criteria for Delimitation of the Time
Normative references of left modified MPI from 11 to 41 weeks of gestation are provided, which could be useful in the assessment of cardiac function in fetuses. Expand
