Özet

Objective: Transient tachypnea of the newborn (TTN) is the leading cause of neonatal morbidity in preterm deliveries and has been reported in term small-for-gestational-age (SGA) fetuses; therefore, determination of fetal lung maturity before delivery is extremely important. Our present study aimed to evaluate the ratio of fetal pulmonary artery acceleration time to ejection time (At/Et) in uncomplicated term SGA fetuses and whether this ratio changes with TTN.
