OBJECTIVES To find the best predictor of the viability of intrauterine pregnancies of uncertain viability (IPUVs). An IPUV is defined as an empty intrauterine gestational sac measuring less than 20 mm in diameter or an intrauterine gestational sac containing a fetal pole with a crown-rump length (CRL) of less than 6 mm with no fetal cardiac activity. METHODS This was a prospective observational study comparing the following two markers for the prediction of viability in IPUVs: human chorionic… CONTINUE READING
