Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Small gestational sac syndrome was present before a fetal death in 10.7 % of the cases, and in 24 % in which the karyotype was normal. We conclude that small gestational sac syndrome is an infrequent but important complication of early pregnancy, which occurs more often in karyotypically normal than abnormal fetuses.
