Study of Lipid Profile in Cases of Intrauterine Growth Retardation

  title={Study of Lipid Profile in Cases of Intrauterine Growth Retardation},
  author={Shadab Khalid and Khalid Beg and Ranjit Sidram Ambad},
  journal={The Journal of medical research},
Purpose: To analyze the level of serum Total Cholesterol (Chol), High Density Lipoprotein (HDL), and Triglyceride (TG) in intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR). Methods: For the study comprising total 40 cases for gestational age or Intrauterine Growth restriction babies born in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, CCMMC Durg were selected. A total of 20 age and sex matched healthy subjects taken as control. The circulating levels of Chol, HDL and TG activity were assayed in the serum… Expand
Relation of low birth weight and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol of neonates with postpartum maternal body mass index
LBW categories do not differ with maternal BMI categories, but the LDL level is more in the neonates of obese mother than that of overweight mothers and normal weight mother. Expand

Impact of intrauterine growth retardation and body proportionality on fetal and neonatal outcome.
Among infants with IUGR, increased length-for-weight had significant crude associations with hypoglycemia and polycythemia, but these associations disappeared after adjustment for severity of growth retardation and gestational age. Expand
[The intrauterine ponderal index as a prognostic factor in fetal retardation].
The authors concluded that the good and specificity of the application of IUPol in the diagnostics of the asymmetric growth retardation need wider use of this method and the IUPol can be used for the elimination of the fetal retardation. Expand
Maternal high-risk factors and severity of growth deficit in small for gestational age infants.
The association between maternal smoking in pregnancy, low (< 0.2 kg/week) maternal weight gain, low pre-pregnancy weight, severe (Hb, < 8 g/dl) maternal anaemia, low education (< 6th grade), history of a previous low birthweight infant or recurrent spontaneous abortion, nulliparity and SGA was homogeneous across the severity strata of fetal growth deficit.

The intrauterine ponderal index in relation to birth weight discordance in twin gestations
The fetal ponderal index is a poor predictor of discordant growth and therefore should be employed cautiously in twin gestations, similar to those in singletons. Expand
Low birth weight and perinatal mortality.
According to the Public Health Service study, the differences cannot be explained by factors such as age of the mother or birth order of the child, and differences in birth weight distribution could account for as much as 85 to 90 percent of the differences in neonatal mortality between the United States and Sweden.

Ponderal Index: A Better Definition of the ‘At Risk’ Group With Intrauterine Growth Problems than Birth‐weight for Gestational Age in Term Infants
This study provides persuasive evidence that estimation of ponderal index provides a worthwhile parameter for assessment of fetal condition in newborn infants and should be calculated for paediatric follow‐up studies of high risk infants. Expand
Birth weight-length ratios, ponderal indexes, placental weights, and birth weight-placenta ratios in a large population.
All indexes were gestational age dependent, but ponderal index and BW/placenta ratios do not increase beyond 40 weeks' gestation, and interpretation of these indexes should be specific for ethnicity, gender, and manner of placental preparation. Expand
Predicting neonatal outcomes: birthweight, body mass index or ponderal index?
In the population of NB infants, BW – a crude measure of fetal growth – is a better predictor than either BMI – a measure of adiposity in adults and children – or PI – a measures of thinness at birth – for selected ST outcomes in NB infants. Expand
Fetal ponderal index in predicting growth retardation.
Data suggest that fetal ponderal index could be used to rule out IUGR with reasonable accuracy and no significant difference was found between the prenatal and postnatal values of weight, length and ponderal indices. Expand
Value of Fetal Ponderal Index in Predicting Growth Retardation
Data suggest that the fetal ponderal index could be used to rule out the diagnosis of IUGR with reasonable accuracy and is found to have sensitivity and specificity of 76.9 and 82%, respectively. Expand
