AIM: This systematic review evaluates the utility of the fetal cerebroplacental ratio (CPR) when assessed at term (from 37 + 0 weeks gestation) as a predictor of adverse obstetric and perinatal outcomes. DATA SOURCES AND SEARCH STRATEGY: An electronic search of Pubmed and Embase using variations of 'cerebroplacental ratio' and 'cerebroumbilical ratio' was conducted by two independent reviewers. Full text studies written in English that reported on low CPR and its correlation with relevant obstetric and perinatal outcomes were included...

AIMS: To determine whether the brain disturbances develop in late-onset intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) before blood flow redistribution towards the fetal brain (detected by Doppler measurements in the middle cerebral artery and umbilical artery). Further, to evaluate predictive values of Doppler arterial indices and umbilical cord blood gases and pH for early functional and/or morphological brain disturbances in late-onset IUGR. STUDY DESIGN: This cohort study included 60 singleton term pregnancies with placental insufficiency caused late-onset IUGR (IUGR occurring after 34 gestational weeks)...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the effect of injecting magnesium sulfate on Doppler parameters of fetal umbilical and middle cerebral arteries (MCA) in women with severe preeclampsia. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 21 patients with severe preeclampsia admitted to Imam Reza Hospital, Kermanshah (Iran), were evaluated. Before and after administration of magnesium sulfate, Doppler ultrasound scan was carried out to measure fetal middle cerebral artery and umbilical artery blood flow...

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of each antenatal control focuses on the detection and prevention of hypoxic-ischemic injury and fetal death (1)) using modern biophysical tests and Doppler parameters. GOAL: This study examines the correlation of changes in arterial compared to venous hemodynamics of the fetus and is determined by the most sensitive and most specific Doppler parameter in the assessment of intrauterine fetal status. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study was conducted as prospective and included 119 pregnant women...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the use of the fetal cerebroumbilical ratio to predict intrapartum compromise in appropriately grown fetuses. STUDY DESIGN: A prospective observational study set at Queen Charlotte's and Chelsea hospital, London, UK. Fetal biometry and Doppler resistance indices were measured in 400 women immediately before established labor. Labor was then managed according to local protocols and guidelines, and intrapartum and neonatal outcome details recorded...

In order to study the possible role of nitric oxide (NO) in the human placenta, we measured the concentration of its stable metabolite nitrite (NO2-) in the placentas of women with normal pregnancies and those from pregnancies complicated by intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) with or without fetal hypoxia. We have measured nitrites by the Griess reaction in 15 placentas from IUGR pregnancies and 12 controls. Cerebroumbilical ratio (C:U) was recorded by color Doppler ultrasound and values below 1 were considered to be a predictor for fetal hypoxia...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the new vascular score, hypoxia index (HI), in the prediction of sonographically detected structural brain lesions in neonates within the first week after delivery of growth-restricted fetuses. METHODS: This prospective study included 29 growth-restricted fetuses delivered between 31 and 40 gestational weeks. Doppler umbilical artery (UA) and middle cerebral artery (MCA) resistance indices (RI) were recorded at 48-h intervals for at least 2 weeks before delivery...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase
