PMID:  10796166     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
BACKGROUND: Failure of the normal expansion of plasma volume in the mother is associated with impaired fetal growth and pre-eclampsia.
OBJECTIVES: The objective of this review was to assess the effects of plasma volume expansion for suspected impaired fetal growth.
SEARCH STRATEGY: We searched the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group trials register and the Cochrane Controlled Trials Register. Date of last search: December 1999.
SELECTION CRITERIA: Randomized or quasi-randomized trials of plasma volume expansion compared to no plasma volume expansion in women with suspected impaired fetal growth.
DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS: Trial quality was assessed.
MAIN RESULTS: No studies were included.
REVIEWER'S CONCLUSIONS: There is not enough evidence to evaluate the use of plasma volume expansion for suspected impaired fetal growth.
