Table 3 Odds of placental insufficiency measures, per centile decrease in EFW/AC third trimester growth velocity

From: Reduced growth velocity across the third trimester is associated with placental insufficiency in fetuses born at a normal birthweight: a prospective cohort study

Outcome Growth parameter Odds ratio (95% CI) of outcome per centile decrease in third trimester growth velocity P
CPR < 5th centile (n = 305) EFW 1.024 (1.005–1.042) 0.01
AC 1.015 (0.997–1.032) 0.10
MCA PI < 5th centile (n = 308) EFW 1.005 (0.987–1.025) 0.57
AC 1.013 (0.995–1.031) 0.17
UA pH < 7.15 at birth (n = 241) EFW 1.024 (1.003–1.046) 0.02
AC 1.022 (1.002–1.041) 0.03
ADP low body fat percentage (n = 137) EFW 1.033 (1.001–1.067) 0.047
AC 1.036 (1.005–1.068) 0.02
