Amniotic Fluid Oligohydramnios

   

  • Isolated oligohydramnios in the term pregnancy: Is it a clinical entity? 

    DL Conway, WB Adkins, B Schroeder, et al (Univ.of Texas, San Antonio) (1998): 

    J Matern Fetal Med 7: 197-200.



    183 women under-going labour induction for isolated oligohydramnios at between 37 and 42 weeks gestation were studied. It was found that isolated oligohydramnios in otherwise normal term pregnancies does not necessarily indicate fetal compromise. Thus in most women with isolated oligohydramnios, labour induction may not be warranted.
