MORAN, Rosario; RODRIGUEZ, Christians; GARAT, Florencia  and  AGOSTINI, Marcelo De. Fetal growth restriction and thrombophilia. Rev. Urug. Med. Int. [online]. 2021, vol.6, n.2, pp.47-51.  Epub July 01, 2021. ISSN 2393-6797.

Fetal growth restriction is a frequent, multifactorial obstetric pathology with high perinatal morbidity and mortality, which must be addressed by a multidisciplinary team. It is defined as the inability to achieve the maximum potential for fetal growth.

In Uruguay, the diagnostic criteria established in 2016 by the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetric and Gynecology (ISUOG) are recommended for diagnostic criteria, highlighting that ultrasound growth monitoring should not be performed in less than 2 weeks. Maternal, fetal and ovular causes are described. Among the probable maternal causes, thrombophilias, mainly acquired ones, are described in the literature.

Keywords : fetal growth restriction; thrombophilia.
