Abstract

Usually, crown heel length (CHL), crown rump length (CRL), head circumference (HC), biparietal diameter (BPD) are commonly used to determine the age of fetuses. In the present study, we attempted to correlate the relationship between fetal age and intestinal length. The CHL, HC and intestinal length (IL) of 100 human abortuses were measured. The results show that there is a steady and progressive increase in IL with fetal age. The IL can be used to determine fetal age when other measurements are abnormal or unavailable.
