THE PRACTICAL IMPORTANCE OF THE SINGLE ARTERY UMBILICAL CORD

in Reproduction

Summary.

The correlation of single artery umbilical cords with congenital anomalies is explored in the present study of 4808 consecutive deliveries. There were thirty-eight single artery cords, and six of these were associated with additional foetal abnormalities. An attempt is made to present the correlation in a true perspective by adding these data to other similar studies. Acknowledgment is given to the many retrospective studies, but consecutive delivery series show that a single artery cord is of importance as an abnormal physical finding but not as a screening test to detect occult malformations.
