Abstract


Objective: To assess the association of abnormal cerebroplacental ratio and adverse perinatal outcomes.

Methodology: Retrospective analysis of 491 women with fetal growth below 10th centile at 32 weeks gestation & beyond was done between January 2005 till December 2015. Cerebroplacental ratio (CPR) was calculated and women were assigned into two groups based on CPR≤ or >1.08. Emergency cesarean sections for fetal distress, neonatal morbidities, Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) admissions & perinatal deaths were measured between the two groups. Data was analyzed in SPSS version 20.

Results: There was a statistically significant difference in gestational age at delivery, birth weight and NICU admission in fetuses with CPR <1.08 (p value <.001).

Conclusion: Cerebroplacental ratio was found to be a better predictor of adverse perinatal outcome in late onset fetal growth restriction.
