Abstract/OtherAbstract:
M-mode recordings of the fetal cardiac ventricles were studied in 15 pregnant women with fetal growth retardation. Pregnancy duration varied between 28 and 40 weeks of gestation. In the presence of normal fetal heart rate patterns, M-mode assessment of ventricular geometry and function did not provide additional information on fetal condition. A close relationship between left ventricular output and fetal weight could be demonstrated.
