Abstract

We retrospectively included women with abnormal FTS analytes and compared outcomes between those with elevated and normal UtA-PI. Out of 582 women with abnormal FTS analytes, 65 (11.2%) had elevated UtA-PI. Neonates of women in this group had higher rates of birth weight <3rd, 5th, and 10th percentile. The area under the ROC curve for predicting FGR <10th percentile by UtA-PI was 0.584, for FGR<5th percentile 0.593, and for FGR<3rd percentile 0.720. In women with abnormal FTS, elevated UtA-PI is associated with higher rates of FGR, but its predictability is moderate-to-poor.
