Légitimité du décubitus latéral gauche systématique

Abstract : The left lateral decubitus (CWD) is recommended in late pregnancy women to liberate Aortocaval compression and promote fetal well-being. However, other parameters seem to intervene. Therefore, a link was contemplated between the maternal spontaneous resting position, orientation of the fetal back and placental insertion for optimal fetal well-being. A prospective experimental study on 119 patients late in pregnancy at the centre of functional explorations of Port Royal. A comparative analysis of the RCF was conducted in DLG as well as in the free position. In addition, a study on the orientation of the fetal back and placental insertion was conducted. A predominance of the GSD and the fetal back left is found. No association is established between these two parameters. There is no significant difference of fetal well-being if the mother is in DLG or if it is in the free position. In there is not nor if the fetus was back on the maternal supine and that it was not based on the placenta or in other configurations. However, an increase in maternal blood pressure as well as heart rate is found in the free position. Then, it seems futile to advise the DLG systematically.
