The fetal biophysical profile in pregnancies with grade III placentas






American Journal of Perinatology 4(2): 90-93

The fetal biophysical profile in pregnancies with grade III placentas

The components of the fetal biophysical profile of pregnancies with grade III placentas and good outcome were retrospectively analyzed and compared to the fetal biophysical components of pregnancies with grade 0 to II placentas. The results of the present study suggest that the dynamic components of the fetal biophysical profile (nonstress test, fetal breathing movements, fetal movements, fetal tone) are not altered in the presence of a grade III placenta and good pregnancy outcome; however, a greater incidence of reduced amniotic fluid volume was found in the presence of grade III placenta. The clinical significance of grade III placenta is discussed.
