The cerebroplacental ratio (CPR) is emerging as an important predictor of adverse pregnancy outcome, and this has implications for the assessment of fetal well-being in fetuses diagnosed as small for gestational age (SGA) and those appropriate for gestational age close to term. Interest in this assessment tool has been rekindled because of recent reports associating an abnormal ratio with adverse perinatal events and associated postnatal neurological outcome. Fetuses with an abnormal CPR that are appropriate for gestational age or have late-onset SGA (>34 weeks of gestation) have a higher incidence of fetal distress in labor requiring emergency cesarean delivery, a lower cord pH, and an increased admission rate to the newborn intensive care unit when compared with fetuses with a normal CPR...

OBJECTIVE: Impaired fetal growth might be better evaluated in twin pregnancies by assessing the intertwin discordance rather than the individual fetal size. The aim of this study was to investigate the prediction of perinatal loss in twin pregnancy using discordance in fetal biometry and Doppler. STUDY DESIGN: This was a retrospective cohort study in a tertiary referral center. The estimated fetal weight (EFW), umbilical artery (UA) pulsatility index (PI), middle cerebral artery (MCA) PI, cerebroplacental ratio (CPR), and their discordance recorded at the last ultrasound assessment before delivery or demise of one or both fetuses were converted into centiles or multiples of the median (MoM)...

OBJECTIVE: We sought to determine the cause of adverse perinatal outcome in fetal growth restriction (FGR) where umbilical artery (UA) Doppler was normal, as identified from the Prospective Observational Trial to Optimize Pediatric Health (PORTO). We compared cases of adverse outcome where UA Doppler was normal and abnormal. STUDY DESIGN: The PORTO study was a national multicenter study of >1100 ultrasound-dated singleton pregnancies with an estimated fetal weight <10th centile...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the surveillance characteristics that precede stillbirth in growth-restricted fetuses that receive integrated Doppler and biophysical profile scoring (BPS). STUDY DESIGN: Nine hundred eighty-seven singleton pregnancies that were complicated by fetal growth restriction had multivessel Doppler scans (umbilical and middle cerebral arteries [MCA], ductus venosus, and umbilical vein) and BPS. Surveillance findings were compared between live births and stillbirths...
