Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The rate of prenatal growth was examined anamnestically on a sample of 319 children with Down's syndrome. It was established that embryos with Down's syndrome are born with a small weight in relation to their pregnancy period, their average falling under the 25th percentile of the normal population. The vitium can play a significant role between the 39th-41st week of gestation since the weight of vitium children is smaller than that of non-vitium ones, although this fact cannot be observed before the 39th week. Full knowledge and examination of the role of a congenital heart defect hindering growth in the last weeks of gestation can be very important.
