Abstract

IUGR secondary to placental insufficiency remains a major cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality in the United States. There is no single test that appears superior to the other available tests for determining the timing of delivery of the growth-restricted fetus. At our institution, we base the decision on the category of the NST or on the abnormal BPP. We monitor severe IUGR fetuses (reversed flow of the umbilical artery and/or reversed flow of the ductus venosus) with 3 NST/day (every 8 hours) + 1 BPP/day. In addition, administration of antenatal corticosteroids in these cases is our common practice. In some cases, the fetal heart rate is continuously monitored. We believe that by gaining a few days or at least a week between 25 and 30 weeks' gestation, we can make a difference in the future of the IUGR fetus.33.
