Multivariate analysis of determinants of fetal growth retardation.
To analyse the relative effect of the risk factors related to fetal growth retardation (FGR) in the central area of Spain.
This is a case-control survey of 370 full-term gestations.
Of the 370 women, 185 were diagnosed with intrauterine growth retardation, and 185 were in the normal group.
All came from a central region of Spain.
We took into account 25 possible risk factors.
In the FGR group we found 12 risk factors with statistical significance in the univariate analysis.
(tobacco, drugs, low pre-pregnancy weight, low maternal height, little gestational weight gain, excessive physical activity during pregnancy, low socioeconomic status, low educational level, unmarried, urinary infection, mother's haematological changes, and previous infertility).
