TO COMPARE THE INCIDENCE OF FETAL GROWTH RESTRICTION OR IUGR IN CASES OF LOW AFI AND NORMAL AFI
Keywords:Fetal, IUGR, AFI
Background & Method: The present study was conducted in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Amaltas Institute of Medical Sciences, Dewas (M.P). Each patient was told about her inclusion and participation in this study and her informed consent was taken. This is a case control prospective comparative study performed on 200 randomly selected low risk pregnant patients at term (37-40 weeks of gestation) admitted.
Result: The live babies with congenital anomalies were admitted to NICU. Unpaired t-test is applied. The P value is 0.109 (insignificant). The mean value of weight of baby born to case group is 2.449±0.4190. The mean value of weight of baby born to control group is 2.554±0.5036. Study almost double the no. of babies in cases where IUGR or FGR. Though, statistically it came out to be insignificant.
Conclusion: Increased rates of LSCS and congenital anomalies in babies, in rest all parameters no significant statistical difference found in cases and control groups. It is not that IUGR is necessarily associated with low AFI and normal AFI ensures normal birth weight. Among cases only 12% were booked and 88% were unbooked. In control 32% were booked and 68% were unbooked.
