OBJECTIVE It is known from animal experiments that blood flow through the ductus venosus changes with fetal strain. Therefore the ratio of umbilical vein to ductus venosus flow rate in human intrauterine growth retardation and multifetal pregnancies was investigated and compared with that in control subjects. STUDY DESIGN Blood flow rates in the umbilical vein and in the ductus venosus, as well as peak velocity, minimum velocity, mean velocity, and pulsatility index (maximum velocity envelope… CONTINUE READING
