OBJECTIVE: To evaluate perinatal and long-term complications of fetuses with intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) compared to constitutionally small ones (SGA). STUDY DESIGN: Outcome of infants with IUGR and SGA born at the Medical University Graz, Austria between 2003 and 2009 was retrospectively analyzed. Group assignment was based on birth weight, Doppler ultrasound and placental morphology. Primary outcome was neurodevelopmental delay at two years corrected age. Secondary outcome were perinatal complications. RESULTS: We included 219 IUGR and 299 SGA infants for perinatal and 146 and 215 for long-term analysis. Fetuses with IUGR were delivered earlier (35vs.38 weeks) and had higher rates of mortality (8%vs.1%; OR 8.3) as well as perinatal complications (24.4%vs.1.0%, OR 31.6). Long-term outcome was affected by increased risk for neurodevelopmental impairment (24.7%vs.5.6%; OR 5.5) and growth delay (21.2%vs.7.4%, OR 3.4). CONCLUSION: IUGR infants are subject to an increased risk for adverse short- and long-term outcome compared to SGA children.
