Abstract

Objective: Isolated oligohydramnios is defined as an amniotic fluid index below five centimeter with no other coexisting condition. There are still controversies about the management and pregnancy outcomes. A marker predicting these is crucial. Low pregnancy associated plasma protein-A levels were reported to be related with adverse pregnancy outcomes. We aimed to determine the role of first trimester pregnancy associated plasma protein-A for poor outcomes in preterm isolated oligohydramnios cases.
