Évolution des biométries du pôle céphalique des nouveau-nés au cours des siècles Comparaison entre deux populations des 19ème et 21ème siècles

Abstract : Objectives: to scale the evolution of cephalic dimensions of term newborns between the 19th and the 21st centuries, and to compare the evolution of cephalic dimensions of newborns with the evolution of the feminine pelvis. Materials and methods: retrospective study of the ancient population, and prospective study of the contemporary population. Data studied are weight, height, biparietal diameter, head circumference, occiput-chin circumference, occiput-forehead diameter, occiput-chin diameter and sub-occiput-bregma diameter. Results: all studied data has significantly increased between the 19th and 21st centuries. Obstetric mechanics is altered by their changes, with a significant increase of deliveries in persistent fetal occiput posterior positions and caesarean deliveries. Conclusion: growth of the cephalic pole newborn dimensions indicates a change between the 19th and 21st century. These developments are likely to lead to a modification of obstetric mechanics in the future.
