Background While traumatic delivery with large for gestational age (LGA; birth weight above 90%) is acknowledged, there is paucity of data regarding other morbidity and mortality associated with LGA. Our hypothesis was that compared with appropriate for gestational age (AGA), LGA have a significantly higher rate of composite neonatal morbidity (CNM). Objective Our objective was to compare the CNM among uncomplicated LGA versus AGA at term (37 weeks or more) among all available Maternal‐Fetal… Expand

TLDR
Extreme birthweights at term are significantly associated with adverse maternal and neonatal outcomes, and as opposed to SGA, LGA is not independently associated with perinatal mortality. Expand
Maternal and Neonatal Morbidity Associated With Early Term Delivery of Large-for-Gestational-Age But Nonmacrosomic Neonates.
TLDR
At 37-39 weeks of gestation, delivery of a neonate with a birth weight that is 90% or greater for gestational age but less than 4,000 g is associated with increased composite maternal and neonatal morbidity. Expand
Adverse Outcomes among Low-Risk Pregnancies at 39 to 41 Weeks: Stratified by Birth Weight Percentile.
TLDR
Among low-risk pregnancies, the risks of composite neonatal and maternal adverse outcomes increase from 39 through 41 weeks' gestation, irrespective of whether newborns are SGA, LGA, or AGA, and Multivariable Poisson's regression was used to estimate the association. Expand
In‐Hospital Outcomes in Large for Gestational Age Infants at 22‐29 Weeks of Gestation
TLDR
Being born LGA was associated with lower risks for all the examined outcomes except for early onset sepsis and severe intraventricular hemorrhage. Expand
A first trimester prediction model for large for gestational age infants: a preliminary study
TLDR
At first trimester, a model including multiparity, pre-pregnancy BMI and PAPP-A satisfactorily predicted the risk of giving birth to a LGA infant. Expand
Population versus Customized Growth Curves: Prediction of Composite Neonatal Morbidity.
TLDR
Though both SGA and LGA are associated with adverse perinatal outcomes, the detection using both nomograms was similar and the positive LRs for the two nomograms were similar with overlapping 95% CI. Expand
Serial Third-Trimester Ultrasonography Compared With Routine Care in Uncomplicated Pregnancies: A Randomized Controlled Trial.
TLDR
Among uncomplicated pregnancies, serial third-trimester ultrasound examinations were significantly more likely to identify abnormalities of fetal growth or amniotic fluid than measurements of fundal height and indicated ultrasound examination. Expand
Childhood Health Outcomes in Term, Large-for-Gestational-Age Babies With Different Postnatal Growth Patterns
Large-for-gestational-age (LGA) babies have a higher risk of metabolic disease later in life, and their postnatal growth in early childhood may be associated with long-term adverse outcomes. ThisExpand
Prediction of large for gestational age by various sonographic fetal weight estimation formulas—which should we use?
TLDR
There is a wide variation in EFW formulas performance for detecting LGA, with Hadlock’s formula (1985) combining abdominal circumference, femur length and biparietal diameter ranked highest. Expand
Development of birth weight for gestational age charts and comparison with currently used charts: defining growth in the Polish population
Abstract Objectives This study aimed to obtain the reference curves of birth weight for gestational age percentiles for the Polish population and to compare them to published charts in terms ofExpand

Small-for-gestational-age infants among uncomplicated pregnancies at term: a secondary analysis of 9 Maternal-Fetal Medicine Units Network studies.
TLDR
Among uncomplicated pregnancies at term, small- compared to appropriate-for-gestational-age newborns have a significantly higher likelihood of composite neonatal morbidity, stillbirth, and neonatal mortality. Expand
Maternal and neonatal outcomes by labor onset type and gestational age.
TLDR
Elective induction may be associated with an increased hysterectomy risk but some neonatal outcomes improved until 39 weeks, and babies born with elective induction are associated with better Neonatal outcomes compared to spontaneous labor. Expand
Macrosomic births in the united states: determinants, outcomes, and proposed grades of risk.
TLDR
Although a definition of macrosomia as >4000 g (grade 1) may be useful for the identification of increased risks of labor and newborn complications, >4500 g may be more predictive of neonatal morbidity, and >5000 g ( grade 3) may been a better indicator of infant mortality risk. Expand

TLDR
In the city of Milwaukee, aberrant fetal growth was variably associated with early, late, and postneonatal mortality. Expand

TLDR
The sensitivity of fundal height for detecting abnormal intrauterine growth was less than 35% for all subgroups, although specificity was more ideal at >90%. Expand
Mid-trimester endovaginal sonography in women at high risk for spontaneous preterm birth.
TLDR
Cervical length assessed by endovaginal sonography between 16 weeks' and 18 weeks 6 days' gestation, augmented by serial evaluations, predicts spontaneous preterm birth before 35 weeks' gestation in high-risk women. Expand
The detection of macrosomia at a teaching hospital.
TLDR
The incidence of newborns weighing in excess of 4000 g is 10%, and approximately 90% of these macrosomic newborns were unsuspected before birth, and the rate of cesarean delivery was significantly higher among newborns correctly identified as macrosomic versus those missed. Expand
Maternal and perinatal outcomes associated with a trial of labor after prior cesarean delivery.
TLDR
A trial of labor after prior cesarean delivery is associated with a greater perinatal risk than is elective repeated cesAREan delivery without labor, although absolute risks are low. Expand
Predicting large fetuses at birth: do multiple ultrasound examinations and longitudinal statistical modelling improve prediction?
TLDR
A single ultrasound examination at late gestation close to birth is the simplest method currently available to predict LGA and macrosomia at birth. Expand
A United States National Reference for Fetal Growth
TLDR
The findings indicate that the prevalence of fetal growth restriction (FGR) will vary markedly, depending on the fetal growth curve used, and many previously published fetal growth curves no longer provide an up-to-date reference for describing the distribution of birth weight by gestational age.
