Background: The study was conducted to evaluate the correlation of umbilical artery color Doppler and histopathology of placenta in prediction of IUGR.
Aims and Objectives
1.To determine the role of umbilical artery color Doppler in screening of high-risk mothers for detection of IUGR.
2.To understand the histopathogical changes in the placenta of an IUGR.
3.To understand whether the changes in umbilical artery color Doppler correlate with histopathological changes in placenta of IUGR cases.
Material and Methods: The present study entitled "Umbilical Artery Colour Doppler in prediction of IUGR & its correlation with histopathology of placenta” was conducted in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MGM Medical College and M. Y. Hospital, Indore (M.P) during the period of January 2017 to June 2018.Sample size 100.
Conclusion: Histopathological changes in placenta are gold standard for detection of IUGR. Sensitivity of umbilical artery color Doppler in prediction of IUGR is 90.9%, Specificity is 100%, Positive predictive value is 100% Negative predictive value is 85% and accuracy is 94%.
