Abstract

The aim of this study is to show the highest level of positive correlation between some anthropometrical parameters of the fetal head with gestational age. The total number of fetuses (n=300), according to gestational age, was divided in five groups. Anthropological measurements were done using the methodology of the International Biological Programme with standard technique of the measurements. Some anthropometrical parameters of the fetal head were analyzed: head circumference, biparietal diameter, transversal cerebellar diameter, head length, head spread, head height and body weight. Results showed positive correlation with anthropometrical parameters of the fetal head with gestational age and crown-rump length. The highest level of positive correlation with crown-rump length showed the length of the head (r=0.92) and with gestational age (r=0.88); biparietal diameter (r=0.89) and (r=0.85); body weight (r=0.95) and (r=0.89); transversal cerebellar diameter showed high correlation with crown-rump length (r=0.81) and with gestational age (p=0.76). The dynamic of some anthropometrical parameters of the fetal head was changed with gestational age especially between the 23rd and 25th week of gestation. The need for using measurements of some anthropometrical parameters of the fetal head are imposed as sensitive, safe and simple, and above all compelling in routine practice. Key words: fetus, anthropometrical parameters, gestational age (week).
