Published in: Geburtshilfe und Frauenheilkunde (2016), Bd. 76, The estimation of foetal weight is an integral part of prenatal care and obstetric routine. In spite of its known susceptibility to errors in cases of underweight or overweight babies, important obstetric decisions depend on it. In the present contribution we have examined the accuracy and error distribution of 35 weight estimation formulae within the normal weight range of 25004000 g. The aim of the study was to identify the weight estimation formulae with the best possible correspondence to the requirements of clinical routine., S. 1172-1179
