PMID:  8238179     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We present a case in which Doppler velocimetry of the umbilical artery in a fetus with a partial mole at 18 weeks' gestation revealed absent diastolic flow. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of Doppler velocimetry of the umbilical artery in this rare condition. Increased placental resistance in this abnormal placenta may explain this finding.
