  1. 1. Ultrasound prediction of large fetuses. Epidemiological and clinical investigations

    University dissertation from Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Lund University

    Author : Gun Lindell; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Two-dimensional ultrasound; three-dimensional ultrasound; fetus; intrauterine growth; maternal characteristic; large-for-gestational age; antenatal calculation; Bayesian theorem; fetal weight; estimation; post-term fetus; fetal macrosomia;

    Abstract : The proportions of newborns with a birth weight (BW) >4,000 g and of macrosomic newborns (BW >4,500 g) have increased during the last two decades, parallel with an increasing maternal pre-pregnancy body mass index (BMI) and age at the time for pregnancy. Delivery of a large fetus, especially >4,500 g might cause perinatal complications for both the mother and her child. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ultrasound as predictor of perinatal outcome

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Gisela Ghosh; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Doppler; Ultrasound; fetus; amniotic fluid index; nuchal cord; uterine artery; umbilical vein; fetal growth restriction; umbilical artery; pulsation; pregnancy;

    Abstract : The aim of the work described in this thesis was to evaluate the value of ultrasound examinations of the amniotic fluid, umbilical cord and blood flow velocity waveform of the fetal and placental vessels as predictors of the perinatal outcome. In the first study, the amniotic fluid index (AFI) measured on admission to the labour ward was evaluated in low-risk pregnancies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Placental pathology regarding inflammation and a new classification of stillbirth

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Laboratory Medicine

    Abstract : Background: The incidence of stillbirth has remained almost constant during the last 2-3 decades despite obvious improvements in obstetric care. To achieve a reduction of stillbirth, better understanding of the etiology is imperative. Relevant test protocols and audit work is reported to reduce the number of unexplained cases. READ MORE

  4. 4. Factors of importance for labor induction

  5. 5. New strategies to prevent fetal and neonatal complications in Rhesus D immunization

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology

    Author : Eleonor Tiblad; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The general purpose of this thesis was to investigate if fetal and neonatal complications due to RhD immunization in the mother could be prevented by 1) reducing procedurerelated complications in intrauterine blood transfusions and by 2) reducing the incidence of RhD immunization by providing routine antenatal anti-D prophylaxis during pregnancy selectively to non-immunized RhD negative women with RhD positive fetuses. Paper I was a retrospective study including 284 intrauterine transfusions in 84 women 1990-2010. READ MORE
