Sample text

Neonatal outcome The immediate neonatal period is a time of great risk for the FGR infant. Because of intrauterine malnutrition, stores of glycogen and fat are low, leading to hypoglycemia and poor neonatal temperature control. Hypocalcemia, probably due to relative hypoparathyroidism, is also common and may present as a jittery infant or as neonatal convulsions. Polycythemia and increased blood viscosity may cause sludging in capillaries, predisposing to thrombosis and pulmonary hypertension, cerebral infarction, and necrotizing enterocolitis.

Vascular disease reduces uteroplacental blood flow and transfer of nutrients to the fetus. Pre-eclampsia is associated with abnormal trophoblastic invasion of maternal spiral arterioles, which ultimately results in luminal narrowing and diminished placental blood flow. Sickle cell disease is also associated with FGR, because of local hypoxia secondary to poor uterine perfusion rather than maternal hypoxemia. Finally, conditions in which there is chronic maternal hypoxia (cyanotic heart disease, pulmonary disease, and high altitude) or maternal anemia reducing oxygen transfer to the fetus are risk factors for compromised fetal growth.

Difficulty arises in situations where only the second fetus demonstrates an abnormal pattern and cannot be further evaluated. If no assurance of fetal well-being can be obtained, prompt delivery is advised. The route of delivery depends on the presentation, estimation of birthweights, experience of the obstetrician, and compliance of the patient. In the majority of situations the first twin will present by the vertex and a trial of vaginal delivery may be attempted in some cases. When both twins present vertex, a trial of vaginal delivery may be attempted regardless of the estimated fetal weights.
