Evaluation of venous Doppler parameters has significantly contributed to the understanding of the vascular mechanisms that lead to fetal growth restriction (FGR) and subsequent fetal deterioration in the setting of progressive placental dysfunction. Venous redistribution of umbilical venous blood flow away from the fetal liver precedes fetal growth delay. Venous Doppler examination allows adjustment of monitoring intervals in recognition of accelerating fetal deterioration. The timing of delivery in early-onset FGR remains challenging because gestational age has an overriding effect on the neonatal outcome until the late second trimester and randomized trials of specific delivery triggers are lacking.
