Nuchal cords


Schäffer, L; Zimmermann, R (2010). Nuchal cords. UpToDate:online.

Abstract

A loop of umbilical cord around the fetal neck (nuchal cord) is a common finding at delivery. Nuchal cords have been associated with an increased risk for adverse outcome [1-3]. Whether prenatal ultrasound examination should attempt
to identify the presence of nuchal cords and whether identification of affected pregnancies should alter antepartum and intrapartum care are controversial.
