Author(s): Dr. Rekha Agrawal
Abstract:Background: The present study entitled “To compare the incidence of Fetal Growth restriction or IUGR in cases of low AFI and Normal AFI” is conducted in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Index Medical College Hospital & Research Centre, Indore (M.P.) Result: Unpaired t-test is applied. The P value is 0.268 (insignificant). The mean value of weight of baby born to case group is 2.657±0.043. The mean value of weight of baby born to control group is 2.813±0.822. In our study almost double the no. of babies in cases was IUGR or FGR. Though statistically it came out to be insignificant. Pearson Chi-square value is 2.947. P value is 0.371 (insignificant). Table no.03 showing overall perinatal outcome in both the groups is almost similar in our study. Conclusion: In our study the rate of induction, LSCS, congenital anomalies in babies and NICU admissions are more in cases then control group. Statistical significance seen but it can be refuted clinically. However except, increased rates of LSCS and congenital anomalies in babies, in rest all parameters no significant statistical difference found in cases and control groups. It is not that IUGR is necessarily associated with low AFI and normal AFI ensures normal birth weight.
