Cross Sectional Study of Effect of Oligohydramios on Fetal Outcome

Ashwini Desai [3] | Uditi Merchant [3]


Abstract: Oligohydraminos is a clinical condition characterized by amniotic fluid index less than 5 cm by sonographic assessment. The aim of the study conducted was to evaluate the effects of oligohydraminos on foetal outcome in the form of foetal distress, growth retardation, NICU admission and mode of delivery. Patients with amniotic fluid index less than 5cm fulfilling the inclusion criteria were included in Group A, while the immediate next admission with amniotic fluid index more than 5cm fulfilling the inclusion criteria were included in Group B. Detailed history, clinical examination, need for labour induction was assessed and intrapartum monitoring was done. The study concluded that decrease in the amniotic fluid has been correlated with increased risk of intrauterine growth retardation, meconium aspiration syndrome, birth asphyxia, low APGAR and congenital malformations. Early detection of oligohydraminos and its management may help in reduction of perinatal morbidity and mortality on one side and decrease caesarean rates on other.
