Abstract
Oligohydramnios is considered as one of the major obstetrical dilemmas
for the multiple serious complications associated with the condition. The
condition hampers an appropriate ultrasonographic evaluation of the fetal anatomy
and frequently causes variable fetal heart rate decelerations by compressing
the fetal cord, often to incur irreversible damage to the fetus. Based on precedent
reports regarding the effect of amnioinfusion in managing oligohydramnios-complicated
pregnancies, we report here our experience of amnioinfusion in 8 cases
complicated by oligohydramnios which we have experienced from November of
1990 to May of 1993 at Seoul National University Hospital(SNUH). The procedure
was applied largely for three purposes, viz., diagnostic(3cases), therapeutic
(4cases), and prophylactic(lcase) with favorable results. We concluded that
amnioinfusion can be of important use in the detection of fetal anomalies, relief
of abnormal fetal heart rate pattern, and prevention of intrapartum fetal complications.
