Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Failure of the normal expansion of plasma volume in the mother is associated with impaired fetal growth and pre-eclampsia.

OBJECTIVES:

The objective of this review was to assess the effects of plasma volume expansion for suspected impaired fetal growth.

SEARCH STRATEGY:

We searched the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group trials register and the Cochrane Controlled Trials Register. Date of last search: December 1999.

SELECTION CRITERIA:

Randomized or quasi-randomized trials of plasma volume expansion compared to no plasma volume expansion in women with suspected impaired fetal growth.

DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS:

Trial quality was assessed.

MAIN RESULTS:

No studies were included.

REVIEWER'S CONCLUSIONS:

There is not enough evidence to evaluate the use of plasma volume expansion for suspected impaired fetal growth.
