Abstract:   (348 Views)

Background & Objective: In this study, the relationship between ultrasonic marker of fetal lung maturity and lamellar body number was studied.

Materials & Methods:  A comprehensive literature review was performed on papers published from 2004 to 2016 by searching databases including NCBI, Science Direct, Springer, and Web of Science as well as native databases such as Iran DAC, Islamic science citation (ISC), and Magiran with a special focus on presented articles. Keywords used include body count, fetal lung, and ultrasonic.

Results:  In this study we used ultrasonic marker of fetal lung maturity and related this to lamellar body count and neo natal outcome. The ultrasonic marker of fetal lung maturity can reduce mortality and morbidity in neonate

Conclusion:   A limited study has been performed in the field of ultrasonic marker of fetal lung maturity and it is suggested that detailed studies be performed in this field in other parts of Iran as well.
