The aim of the study was to assess the prenatal sonographic measurement of AGD in fetuses of PCO mothers vs the general population.Materials and methods: AGD was measured prospectively infetuses at 26–37 weeks of gestati...

We aimed to describe the various patterns of presentation, including assistin...
