Effect Of Oligohydramnios On Fetal Growth During Pregnancy
Oligohydramnios is a serious complication of pregnancy that is associated with a poor perinatal outcome. The impact of oligohydramnios on maternal and fetal outcome can be significant. It can cause fetal complications as cord compression, fetal pulmonary hypoplasia, fetal growth restriction, low APGAR score, neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) admission and fetal mortality. Maternal complications like prolonged labor due to inertia and increased incidence of operative intervention can occur.
