Ultraschall bei Terminüberschreitung und Übertragung

  • A. Kempe


Bei Terminüberschreitung und Übertragung steigen die Risiken für eine perinatale Mortalität und Morbidität deutlich an. Zusätzliche Risikofaktoren (z. B .mütterliches Alter, Diabetes mellitus) sollten die Frequenz und Intensität der Überwachung und die Entscheidung zur Einleitung der Geburt beeinflussen. Es werden die Überwachungsmöglichkeiten Kardiotokogramm, Ultraschall, Dopplersonographie, biophysikalisches Profil dargestellt und in ihrer Bedeutung diskutiert.
