Identification of fetal growth restricted (FGR) infants depends on the fetal or newborn charts used to identify them. We aimed to compare the prenatal and postnatal diagnosis of FGR and their ability to predict adverse perinatal outcomes.
Observational retrospective cohort study of 95 consecutive mother–infant pairs with preterm birth between 24 and 34 weeks (study period: January 2014 to December 2015).
Prenatal sonographic diagnosis of FGR, based on customized fetal growth standards and fetal Doppler, was compared with postnatal diagnosis of FGR based on a birthweight < 3rd percentile according to newborn charts (International Newborn size references for the Intergrowth twenty-first century program, and Olsen’s charts). Neonatal mortality and adverse neonatal outcomes were compared among groups.
Only prenatal FGR cases in which a birthweight below the third percentile is confirmed by means of postnatal charts (Olsen or Intergrowth standard) are at higher risk of adverse postnatal outcome.
