Abstract

Background. The role of antenatal risk factors associated with the occurrence of fetal growth restriction complicated by abnormal umbilical artery Doppler studies has not yet been studied extensively. We evaluated the role and the interactions of antenatal antecedents of fetal growth restriction complicated by abnormal umbilical artery end-diastolic velocities. Methods. We compared antenatal variables in 183 pregnancies complicated by fetal growth retardation and abnormal umbilical artery Doppler studies and 549 appropriately grown fetuses with normal end-diastolic velocity waveform in the umbilical artery. Logistic regression was used to evaluate the association between antenatal variables and fetal growth retardation and to test for interaction. Results. In logistic models, increasing maternal age [odds ratio (OR) 1.06, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.01-1.11], nulliparity (OR 2.2, 95% CI 1.37-3.5), smoking during pregnancy (OR 2.56, 95% CI 1.56-4.22), preeclampsia (OR 27.5, 95% CI 15.1-49.9), first-trimester hemorrhage (OR 2.25, 95% CI 1.32-3.82) and low (
