Competing-risks model for prediction of small-for-gestational-age neonate from maternal characteristics and medical history.

Ultrasound Obstet Gynecol 2020 Jun 23. Epub 2020 Jun 23.

Fetal Medicine Research Institute, King's College Hospital, London, UK.

Background: The established method of identifying a group of women at high risk of delivering a small-for-gestational-age (SGA) neonate, requiring increased surveillance, is use of risk scoring systems based on maternal demographic characteristics and medical history. Although this approach is relatively simple to perform, it does not provide patient-specific risks and has an uncertain performance in predicting SGA. Another approach to predict delivery of a SGA neonate is to use logistic regression models that combine maternal factors with first-trimester biomarkers. Read More

Stillbirth at term: Does size really matter?

Int J Gynaecol Obstet 2020 May 21. Epub 2020 May 21.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, St. George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK.

Placental dysfunction has a deleterious influence on fetal size and is associated with higher rates of perinatal morbidity and mortality. This association underpins the strategy of fetal size evaluation as a mechanism to identify placental dysfunction and prevent stillbirth. The optimal method of routine detection of small for gestational age (SGA) remains to be clarified with choices between estimation of symphyseal-fundal height versus routine third-trimester ultrasound, various formulae for fetal weight estimation by ultrasound, and the variable use of national, customized, or international fetal growth references.

Evaluating the accuracy and precision of sonographic fetal weight estimation models in extremely early-onset fetal growth restriction.

Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand 2020 03 20;99(3):364-373. Epub 2019 Nov 20.

Maternal & Fetal Health Research Center, Division of Developmental Biology, Medicine & Health, School of Medical Sciences, Faculty of Biology, Medicine & Health, The University of Manchester, Manchester, UK.

Introduction: Birthweight is a critical predictor of survival in extremely early-onset fetal growth restriction (diagnosed pre-28 weeks' gestation, with abnormal umbilical/uterine artery Doppler waveforms), therefore accurate fetal weight estimation is a crucial component of antenatal management. Currently available sonographic fetal weight estimation models were predominantly developed in populations of mixed gestational age and varying fetal weights, but not specifically tested within the context of extremely early-onset fetal growth restriction. This study aimed to determine the accuracy and precision of fetal weight estimation in this population and investigate whether model performance is affected by other factors. Read More

Timing and Amount of Gestational Weight Gain in Association with Adverse Birth Outcomes.

Epidemiology 2019 09;30(5):695-705

Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, MA.

Background: Most existing research on gestational weight gain and pregnancy outcomes has not accounted for timing of weight gain. The area under the weight gain curve (AUC) provides a single measure that incorporates both timing of weight gain and total amount gained. This study evaluated predictors and outcomes associated with second- and third-trimester weight gain AUC from the second and third trimester using time-to-event analysis to account for the correlation between gestational weight gain and gestational duration.

ISUOG Practice Guidelines: ultrasound assessment of fetal biometry and growth.

Ultrasound Obstet Gynecol 2019 06;53(6):715-723

Department of Maternal Fetal Medicine, Obstetric Ultrasound and Prenatal Diagnostic Unit, KK Women's and Children's Hospital, Singapore.

INTRODUCTION These Guidelines aim to describe appropriate assessment of fetal biometry and diagnosis of fetal growth disorders. These disorders consist mainly of fetal growth restriction (FGR), also referred to as intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) and often associated with small‐for‐gestational age (SGA), and large‐for‐gestational age (LGA), which may lead to fetal macrosomia; both have been associated with a variety of adverse maternal and perinatal outcomes. Screening for, and adequate management of, fetal growth abnormalities are essential components of antenatal care, and fetal ultrasound plays a key role in assessment of these conditions. Read More

Large fetal weight alone in Robson-1 parturients doesn't translate into a risk of Caesarean delivery higher then that of a vaginal birth.

Eur J Obstet Gynecol Reprod Biol 2019 Aug 24;239:7-10. Epub 2019 May 24.

University of Debrecen, Dept. Obstet. Gynaecol., Nagyerdei Krt. 98, Debrecen 4032, Hungary.

Objective: The authors analysed the Caesarean section rate as a function of birth weight among Robson-1 parturients and compared with that among the unselected obstetric population.

Study Design: A retrospective analysis of birth weight, maternal height and the route of delivery was carried out in an unselected obstetric population of 26,012 parturients. The authors compared birth weight centile distributions of vaginally, and that of abdominally delivered fetuses between Robson-1 parturients as well as those of the total obstetric population.

Estimation of fetal weight near term: comparison between ultrasound and symphysis-fundus evaluation by Johnson's rule.

J Matern Fetal Neonatal Med 2019 Jun 5:1-5. Epub 2019 Jun 5.

c Mother-Infant Department, School of Medicine and Surgery , University of Modena and Reggio Emilia , Modena , Italy.

The fetal weight estimation is commonly performed by ultrasound but the manual method is also applied in developing countries due to the lack of scan availability and in western countries for the management of low-risk pregnancy managed autonomously by the midwives. The most applied method to estimate fetal weight measures the longitudinal diameter of the symphysis-fundus according to Johnson's rule. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the reliability of the symphysis-fundus method with respect to the ultrasound to estimate fetal weight in low risk pregnancies according to the classification of adequate, small and large for gestational age.
