Abstract

Labor arrest is estimated to account for approximately one-third of all primary cesarean deliveries, and is associated with an increased risk of adverse maternal and perinatal outcomes. One of the main causes is the mismatch between the size of the birth canal and that of the fetus, a condition usually referred to as cephalopelvic disproportion.
The sonographic measurement of the ratio between the fetal head circumference and the obstetrical conjugate is accurate in predicting the risk of labor arrest: results from a multicenter prospective study / Di Pasquo, E.; Morganelli, G.; Volpe, N.; Labadini, C.; Ramirez-Zegarra, R.; Abou-Dakn, M.; Mappa, I.; Rizzo, G.; Dall'Asta, A.; Ghi, T.. - In: AMERICAN JOURNAL OF OBSTETRICS & GYNECOLOGY, MATERNAL-FETAL MEDICINE. - ISSN 2589-9333. - 4:6(2022), p. 100710.
