Details

Macrosomia is a term used to describe a neonate with excessive birth weight and is diagnosed when the birth weight exceeds a threshold. Macrosomia is associated with numerous maternal as well as neonatal complications and is, therefore, a major cause of adverse pregnancy outcomes. This book addresses several risk factors, outcomes and potential health complications that may be caused by macrosomia.
