The blood flow velocity waveform index in the fetal thoracic aorta and its ability to detect fetal compromise in the small for gestational age fetus

, : The blood flow velocity waveform index in the fetal thoracic aorta and its ability to detect fetal compromise in the small for gestational age fetus. European Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology & Reproductive Biology 27(2): 105-114

In a prospective longitudinal study of 96 patients, mean values of blood velocity waveform indices of the fetal thoracic aorta are established with a combined linear array real-time and pulsed Doppler transducer. The course of the various blood velocity waveforms is elucidated. The most striking findings is the restricted variability of the pulsatility index (PI), resistance index (RI). A/B ratio, acceleration time (AcT) and acceleration time percentage (AcTP) during the last trimester of pregnancy. In 17 proven and evaluable SGA infants the various blood velocity waveform indices were compared with the established mean values. Fourteen of these 17 (82%) infants were proven to be intrauterine growth-retarded (IUGR). Only 3 of these 14 (21%) showed a significant increase in PI values.
