Antepartum cardiotocographic patterns (NsT:Nonstress Test) and echographic assessments of amniotic fluid pockets were retrospectively analysed in 63 postdate pregnancies. The results of NsT (Fisher-score) and ecographic examinations were correlated with obstetric outcome (5 minutes Apgar-score). Ecographic assessments of amniotic volumes seem more effective than NsT for the lower frequency of false-positive results. Anyhow, considering the low sensibility of NsT and Echography separatedly considered, the Authors suggest a simultaneous valuation of the two tests.
