Fetal biometry including biparietal diameter (BPD), femoral length (FL), abdominal circumference (AC) and estimated fetal weight (EFW) was done.
Gestational age can be assessed by accurate measurements of biparietal diameter, head circumference, femur length and abdominal circumference.
Other factors that independently predicted a statistically significant 4%-17% increased risk for shoulder dystocia at term included estimated fetal weight, femur length, abdominal circumference, and the ratio of femur length to biparietal diameter, reported Dr.
Associations were observed between maternal personal exposure to airborne benzene and smaller fecal biparietal diameter in mid- and late pregnancy and with head circumference in mid- and late pregnancy and at birth (Slama et al.
After 13 weeks of gestation, the foetal age may be estimated by the biparietal diameter (the transverse diameter of the head), the head circumference and the length of the femur (the longest bone in the body).
Standard measurements include the biparietal diameter, head circumference, length of the fetal femur, abdominal circumference and amniotic fluid volume [1].
A multicenter study found that among various TBI-related imaging abnormalities, seizures most often followed biparietal contusion, dural penetration with metal fragments, multiple intracranial surgeries, subdural hematoma with evacuation, midline shift <5 mm, and multiple or bilateral cortical contusions [24].
Ultrasound scans entailed transabdominal determination of single or multiple pregnancy, placental site identification, estimation of gestational age based on a combination of biparietal diameter, head circumference and femur length measurements using Chitty's growth tables (Chitty, Altman, Henderson & Campbell, 1994a:35-43; Chitty, Altman, Henderson & Campbell, 1994b:132-135), and a thorough search for foetal abnormalities including soft markers for aneuploidies.
if hydrocephaly is excluded, the head is flexed, the biparietal diameter is less than 10 cm, a footling breech is ruled out, and the fetus is estimated to be of average weight, a VD can be anticipated.
