Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This study compares human fetal aortic dimensions in 128 normal and 30 intrauterine growth-retarded (IUGR) fetuses using two-dimensional (2D) and M-mode echocardiography. We found that the fetal aortic root in the normally grown fetuses is significantly larger than the descending aorta at all gestational ages. Furthermore, IUGR fetuses had smaller descending aortic dimensions then did normally grown fetuses. When the descending aortic dimension in the IUGR fetuses was corrected for estimated fetal weight, it was found to be of comparable size to those of the normal fetuses. The difference in aortic size of growth-retarded fetuses is proportional to growth and therefore probably a secondary phenomenon.
