OBJECTIVE: The aim of this research was to compare the fetal frontomaxillary facial (FMF) angle between normal and trisomy 21 fetuses at 11(+0) -13(+6)  weeks gestation in a Chinese population. METHODS: A prospective observational study was performed that included 640 euploid and 45 trisomy 21 singleton pregnancies undergoing first trimester ultrasound screening between 11 and 13(+6)  weeks of gestation. The FMF angle was measured in the midsagittal plane using the standard technique. RESULTS: The fetal mean FMF angle decreased with the increasing crown-rump length (CRL) from 88.6°at a CRL of 45 mm to 78.5° at a CRL of 84 mm (FMF angle = 100.212 - 0.258 × CRL, R(2)  = 0.222, p < 0.001). The overall mean FMF angle in the euploid population was 82.9° ± 4.1° and in trisomy 21 cases, 92.3° ± 5.2°. CONCLUSIONS: Fetal FMF angle is affected by gestational age in a Chinese population, although it remains a significant predictor of fetal trisomy 21. © 2013 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
