• measurement
  • Clinical estimate by palpation is subjective, symphysiofundal height measurement alone is not clinically significant, and combining the latter with abdominal circumference and skin fold thickness has not been adequately evaluated but could provide an objective alternative for intrapartum fatal weight estimation. (mak.ac.ug)
  • Thus the use of the fetal abdominal circumference measurement at the time of GDM diagnosis is theoretically a biologically plausible marker of both the need for medical management of GDM as well as increased risk of adverse perinatal outcomes but there is currently limited evidence to support this.
