Intrauterine blood flow and postnatal neurological development in growth-retarded fetuses

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) is associated with abnormal neuro-developmental outcome. Aortic blood flow velocity waveforms have been shown to predict fetal distress in IUGR. Fetal aortic blood flow velocity waveforms were correlated to neuro-developmental performance at 7 years of age. Results suggest that abnormal fetal aortic blood flow velocity waveforms are associated with neuro-developmental impairment.
