Abstract

The aims of this study are to examine how frequently near-term and term small-for-gestational-age (SGA) infants were investigated in our clinical practice, whether being born less than the third centile for weight increased the yield of positive investigations, and whether there were additional characteristics in infants with positive investigations. This retrospective cohort study was compiled using a database of a large maternity network, using the search near term and term gestational age (greater than or equal to 35 weeks) over a span of 4 years. SGA babies were further filtered into less than the tenth centile and third centile. Out of a population of 30,461 infants in the study period, 3437 (11.3%) SGA infants were identified. Four hundred fifteen SGA infants (12.1%) underwent screening investigations, of which 49 infants (11.8%) yielded a positive investigation. 27.2% of karyotypes, 12.8% of cranial ultrasounds and 0.4% of urine CMV tests showed positive results in < 10th centile group. Being born less than the third centile for weight did not increase the yield of positive investigations. Most infants with positive investigations had an additional maternal or neonatal characteristic or risk factor present. SGA babies without additional maternal or neonatal characteristics have a poor yield on neonatal screening investigations. Additional characteristics may be considered while deciding whether a SGA infant needs screening investigation. What is Known: • Small-for-gestational-age (SGA) infants have an increased risk of short- and long-term complications. • Whilst the causes for SGA are multifactorial, there has been a tendency to undertake screening investigations like Toxoplasma, Others, Rubella, Cytomegalovirus, Herpes group of viruses (TORCH) screening and cranial ultrasounds in the neonatal period. What is New: • Comprehensive study investigating the rates of screening in near-term and term SGA population. • The yield of screening tests for near-term and term SGA infants without additional antenatal and postnatal characteristics is low.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 13 November 2017.
All research outputs
#3,240,396
of 12,220,965 outputs
Outputs from European Journal of Pediatrics
#466
of 2,136 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#87,134
of 273,535 outputs
Outputs of similar age from European Journal of Pediatrics
#17
of 46 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,220,965 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 73rd percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,136 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.9. This one has done well, scoring higher than 77% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 273,535 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 67% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 46 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 63% of its contemporaries.
