    Keywords : symphysis-fundus measurements; small for gestational age; intrauterine growth retardation; fetal growth; self-administered; relative growth; screening method; statistical surveillance; fetal surveillance;

    Abstract : A case-control study was performed to evaluate the Swedish population-based symphysis fundus (SF) reference curves. The study included 242 small for gestational age (SGA) neonates (169 term and 73 preterm infants) as cases and 296 non-SGA infants as controls. Two Swedish SF curves were evaluated. READ MORE

    Abstract : Fetal growth restriction (FGR) is, next to prematurity, the second leading cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality. To reduce perinatal morbidity and mortality it is important to identify such fetuses in utero in order to monitor their development, and to determine the most optimal time for delivery. READ MORE
