Abstract

Intrauterine hypoxia was investigated by using indirect ultrasonographic signs. These signs include renal hyperechogenicity, and decreased flow parameters in the umbilical artery and the renal artery in the third trimester of gestation. The detection of fetal renal hyperechogenicity appears to be an indicator of the fetal arterial circulation depression, which in correlated to the pathological change in resistance index for the fetal renal arteries. The resistance index of fetal renal arterial blood flow was significantly lower in hyperechogenic cases. This is a prenatal sign of subsequent intrauterine and neonatal complications.
