TLDR
A retrospective cohort study using ultrasound data from 527 low risk pregnancies of Somali ethnicity at single tertiary care center between 2011 and 2017 aimed to model fetal growth standards within a healthy Somali population between 16 and 40 weeks gestation, and address possible differences in the growth patterns compared with standards for non-Hispanic White, non- Hispanic Black, Hispanic, and Asian singleton fetuses.
Which chart and which cut-point: deciding on the INTERGROWTH, World Health Organization, or Hadlock fetal growth chart
TLDR
The INTERGROWTH, WHO, and Hadlock fetal growth charts performed similarly in predicting perinatal morbidity/mortality, even when evaluating multiple cut points.

TLDR
Investigating the impact of correcting for differences in fetal growth potential on the variability of third-trimester size standards found decreased variability can improve the sensitivity of IGA for detecting restricted growth and may be partly responsible for its ability to identify different types of growth abnormalities earlier in pregnancy.
Correlation of Fetal Growth Between Last Menstrual Period and third Trimester Ultrasound Pregnancy on Ethnic Minangkabau
TLDR
There is a significant correlation fetal growth between LMP and 3rd trimester ultrasound pregnancy with variable BPD, HC, AC, FL, HL on minangkabau ethnic group.
Reference values of fetal ultrasound biometry: results of a prospective cohort study in Lithuania
TLDR
The significant differences between the centile charts and those from INTERGROWTH-21 imply the necessity to have local standards of fetal biometry, while the differences of the results from the older study in the same population show the importance of updating fetalBiometry reference charts for every generation.
Fetal biometry assessment with Intergrowth 21st’s and Salomon’s equations in rural Burkina Faso
TLDR
The agreement between Intergrowth 21st and Salomon equations is poor apart from HC, which would imply different clinical decision regarding the management of the pregnancy.
Intrauterine growth patterns in rural Ethiopia compared with WHO and INTERGROWTH-21st growth standards: A community-based longitudinal study
TLDR
The study determined fetal growth patterns in a drought-affected rural community of Ethiopia using common ultrasound biometric measurements and found similar IUG patterns to those indicated in the WHO and INTERGROWTH-21st fetal growth reference standards.

The World Health Organization Fetal Growth Charts: A Multinational Longitudinal Study of Ultrasound Biometric Measurements and Estimated Fetal Weight
TLDR
There was asymmetric distribution of growth of EFW: a slightly wider distribution among the lower percentiles during early weeks shifted to a notably expanded distribution of the higher percentiles in late pregnancy.
WHO multicentre study for the development of growth standards from fetal life to childhood: the fetal component
TLDR
The data from this study will be incorporated into obstetric practice and national health policies at country level in coordination with the activities presently conducted by WHO to implement the use of the Child Growth Standards.
Longitudinal reference ranges for estimated fetal weight
TLDR
The present growth chart is recommended as robust reference ranges for assessing EFW and growth and Fetal and maternal variables can be added into the models to individualize the prediction of EFW.

TLDR
The FGPS1 has the potential for characterizing GR in the third trimester and may provide a means for predicting the severity of corresponding abnormal neonatal growth outcomes.
THE ASSESSMENT OF FETAL GROWTH
TLDR
This report is based on an analysis of 52,004 legitimate, single births which took place in the City of Aberdeen during the years 1948--64, and is of exceptional value for the following reasons.
Intrauterine growth patterns in rural Ethiopia compared with WHO and INTERGROWTH-21st growth standards: A community-based longitudinal study
TLDR
The study determined fetal growth patterns in a drought-affected rural community of Ethiopia using common ultrasound biometric measurements and found similar IUG patterns to those indicated in the WHO and INTERGROWTH-21st fetal growth reference standards.

TLDR
The overall growth formula showed an almost linear relationship between gestational age and fetal weight at term, and the fetuses of parous women were also heavier in late pregnancy, as were those of European compared to Indo‐Pakistani mothers.

Worldwide variation in human growth and the World Health Organization growth standards: a systematic review
TLDR
The findings indicate that the use of a single international standard for head circumference is not justified, and height and weight curves may not be optimal fits in all cases.
