Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) is a pathological condition in which a fetus has not achieved his genetic growth potential , regardless of size
Objectives –To study the perinatal outcome in growth restricted fetuses with the help of Doppler Velocimetry using Barcelona Staging.
Methods - Record Based Study from 7 June 2021 to 7 march 2022 will be analysed.
Results Out of 86 pregnancies,35 cases of abnormal doppler velocimetry were included under Barcelona staging and outcome was studied. 51.4% were of age group -20-24yrs. 57.1% were primigravidas. Most common associated risk factor is Preeclampsia and oligohydromnios. 68.5%,2.8%,14.2%,14.2%  were in Barcelona stage 1 ,2,3 and 4 respectively. Maternal and perinatal outcome were good in stage 1.Perinatal death 3 cases
Conclusion Management using Barcelona staging will be helpful for Obstetrician to determine the proper monitoring and timing of delivery
