THE ROLE OF INTRAVENOUS AMINO ACID INFUSION IN OLIGOHYDRAMNIOSAbstract
Oligohydramnios means the fetus is in a compromised condition. Ante partum amniotic fluid index (A.F.I.) assessment is one of the reliable, good predictor and standard technique for assessment of fetal well-being in antenatal period. In the present study 25 cases of Oligohydramnios in the third trimester were given intravenous amino acid in 1000cc of 10% fructodex drip on 1st day and the amino acid infusion drip in 500 ml of 10% fructodex daily till 6 days. After that biweekly till patient deliver or till term. There were 4 cases of severe Oligohydramnios and 21 cases of moderate Oligohydramnios at the time of their first visit. After amino acid infusion therapy, on repeat ultrasonography, 9 (36%) cases patients with moderate Oligohydramnios had improved amniotic fluid index (AFI) to normal whereas two patients with severe Oligohydramnios had improved A.F.I. to moderate Oligohydramnios and remaining 12 and two patients of moderate and severe Oligohydramnios group patients did not show any changes in A.F.I. Maximum cases delivered vaginally.
