Fetal weight estimates in diabetic gravid women.
Fetal weight in utero was estimated sonographically within one week of delivery in 70 live-born fetuses of diabetic gravidas. The best estimates of weight were obtained with formulas dependent on biparietal diameter, abdominal circumference, and femur diaphysis length, and with formulas using the two variables of femur diaphysis length and abdominal circumference. Use of a special formula for the fetus of a diabetic mother was not of additional benefit. Acceptable weight estimates for the macrosomic diabetic fetus were not obtained.
