Background:Intrauterine Growth Restriction (IUGR) is a term used to describe the condition
of a foetus whose size or growth is subnormal.” A foetus is growth restricted if its weight is
less than tenth percentile of its gestational age”. IUGR is associated with increased mortality
and morbidity which possibly may extend into adult life as compared to foetuses and newborns
presenting with characteristics of normal growth.
AIM: To evaluate the usefulness of umbilical artery Doppler indices as predictors in antepartum
surveillance in clinically suspected cases of intra uterine growth
restriction.MATERIALS & METHODSStudy Design: Institutional prospective
Observational study.Study area: The study was done in the Dept. of. in a Medical
college.Study Period:1 year.Study population:Women who presented to antenatal
OPD/IPD with clinical symptoms and risk factors and laboratory data of IUGR meeting the
mentioned inclusion criteria.Sample size: A total of 100 women were included in the
study.Sampling method: Simple Random sampling method
