Limited epidemiological studies have investigated the relationship between prenatal exposure to ambient particulate matter and risk of abnormal fetal growth, and have reached inconclusive results. No ...
The relationship between placental and fetal brain growth is poorly understood and difficult to assess. The objective of this study was to interrogate placental and fetal brain growth in healthy pregn...
The aim of the present study was to assess, in a population of dichorionic twin pregnancies with selective growth restriction, the effect of inter-twin differences by use of Doppler velocimetry and fe...
Overt thyroid disease in pregnancy is a known risk factor for abnormal fetal growth and development. Data on the effects of milder forms of variation in maternal thyroid function on intrauterine growt...
Fetal growth abnormalities is one of the most common problems faced in modern obstetrics. The association between low birth weight and perinatal death as well as severe morbidity is well k...
Abnormal fetal development such as macrosomia can cause some complications on both fetus and mother.The measurement of fetal anterior abdominal wall thickness (FAWT) is an easy examination...
Background: - Normal fetal growth is a critical component of a healthy pregnancy and the long-term health of the offspring. Pivotal to understanding the dynamics of human fetal gr...
The aim of this study is to get a proof of concept for using a computational model of fetal haemodynamics, combined with machine learning based on Doppler patterns of the fetal cardiovascu...
Constituted vascular intrauterine growth restriction (CVIG) is correlated to an abnormal placenta development, with an alteration of the maternal-fetal circulation, coagulation troubles, a...
A condition of fetal overgrowth leading to a large-for-gestational-age FETUS. It is defined as BIRTH WEIGHT greater than 4,000 grams or above the 90th percentile for population and sex-specific growth curves. It is commonly seen in GESTATIONAL DIABETES; PROLONGED PREGNANCY; and pregnancies complicated by pre-existing diabetes mellitus.
The failure of a FETUS to attain its expected FETAL GROWTH at any GESTATIONAL AGE.
Number of fetal deaths with stated or presumed gestation of 20 weeks or more in a given population. Late fetal mortality is death after of 28 weeks or more.
Percutaneous transabdominal puncture of the uterus during pregnancy to obtain amniotic fluid. It is commonly used for fetal karyotype determination in order to diagnose abnormal fetal conditions.
The pattern of any process, or the interrelationship of phenomena, which affects growth or change within a population.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
