Fetal Front-abdominal Wall Thickness and Perinatal Outcome

2017-07-28 12:08:22 | BioPortfolio


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 that it can be obtained during an examination of a pregnant woman by ultrasound. Macrosomia for fetus can lead to some morbidities. It can affect perinatal outcome and increase childbirth complications and operative birth. There are some studies scrutinizing the relationship between FAWT and diabetes in the literature. However there are few studies which scrutinize effect of FAWT on both abnormal fetal development and adverse perinatal outcomes in non-diabetic pregnancies and non high risk pregnancies. Hence the investigators wonder if FAWT can anticipate birth-weight or macrosomic infant or perinatal outcome regarding with macrosomia in the second trimester.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A nonreassuring fetal status (NRFS) indicating that the FETUS is compromised (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists 1988). It can be identified by sub-optimal values in FETAL HEART RATE; oxygenation of FETAL BLOOD; and other parameters.

A complication of pregnancy in which the UMBILICAL CORD wraps around the fetal neck once or multiple times. In some cases, cord entanglement around fetal neck may not affect pregnancy outcome significantly. In others, the nuchal cord may lead to restricted fetal blood flow, oxygen transport, fetal development, fetal movement, and complicated delivery at birth.

Prenatal interventions to correct fetal anomalies or treat FETAL DISEASES in utero. Fetal therapies include several major areas, such as open surgery; FETOSCOPY; pharmacological therapy; INTRAUTERINE TRANSFUSION; STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION; and GENE THERAPY.

Pregnancy complication where fetal blood vessels, normally inside the umbilical cord, are left unprotected and cross FETAL MEMBRANES. It is associated with antepartum bleeding and FETAL DEATH and STILLBIRTH due to exsanguination.
