OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the risk of adverse perinatal outcome according to the estimated fetal weight (EFW) in a cohort of term small-for-gestational-age (SGA) fetuses with normal umbilical, uterine and brain Doppler. METHODS: A cohort of 132 term SGA fetuses with normal umbilical artery pulsatility index (PI), mean uterine artery PI and cerebroplacental ratio was compared to a control group of 132 appropriate-for-gestational age babies, matched by gestational age at delivery. The capacity of the EFW percentile to predict cesarean delivery (CD), CD for non-reassuring fetal status (NRFS), neonatal acidosis and days of neonatal hospitalization was analyzed. RESULTS: As a whole, SGA fetuses with normal Doppler did not show statistically significant difference for intrapartum CD (22.0% vs. 15.9%, p = 0.14), and neonatal acidosis (3.3% vs. 1.5%, p = 0.30), but had significantly higher risk of CD for NRFS (15.9% vs. 5.3%, p<0.01) and longer neonatal hospitalization (1.39 vs. 0.87 days, p<0.05) than controls. SGA fetuses with EFW<3(rd) centile had significantly higher incidence of intrapartum CD (30.0% vs. 15.3%, p<0.01), CD for NRFS (25.0% vs. 8.3%, p<0.01) and longer neonatal hospitalization (2.0 vs. 0.9 days, p<0.01) than those with EFW > 3(rd) centile. SGA cases with EFW > 3(rd) centile had perinatal outcomes similar to controls with normal EFW. CONCLUSION: Among SGA fetuses with normal placental and cerebral Doppler, EFW<3(rd) centile discriminates SGA fetuses with higher risk of adverse perinatal outcome from SGA with outcomes similar to normally grown fetuses.
