2nd trimester screening to identify pregnancies at risk for preterm preeclampsia and fetal growth restriction: Preliminary results from Samrakshan India

Our findings suggest that reliance on growth alone or changes in growth alone to identify fetal growth restriction may not be optimal.The integration of Doppler in the diagnostic parameters led to a significant reduction in the incidence of fetuses classified as early FGR (from 9.03% to 3.09%). Twenty-six (6.18%, 95% CI: 4.25, 8.90) fetuses with an EFW <10th percentile (would have previously been classified as FGR) had a normal mean uterine artery PI and were now classified as SGA fetuses with a risk of perinatal outcomes similar to AGA fetuses.
