Diagnosis of fetal growth restriction in a cohort of small-for-gestational-age neonates at term: neonatal and maternal outcomes.

Am J Obstet Gynecol MFM 2022 Jun 3;4(5):100672. Epub 2022 Jun 3.

Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences, McGovern Medical School, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, Houston, TX.

Background: Small-for-gestational-age neonates (birthweight of <10th percentile for gestational age) are significantly more likely to have multiple adverse outcomes than appropriate-for-gestational-age neonates (birthweight of 10th-90th percentile). Most small-for-gestational-age neonates are undetected during pregnancy (ie, not diagnosed as fetal growth restriction), but the sequela of being undetected remains uncertain.

Objective: The primary objective of this study was to compare the composite neonatal adverse outcomes among singleton pregnancies that were at least 37 weeks and delivered small-for-gestational-age neonates, which were diagnosed as either fetal growth restriction during pregnancy (detected small for gestational age) or not (undetected small for gestational age).
