Table 5 Multiple logistic regression of associated factors for ventricular septal defects among screened fetuses ( n= 2,661)

From: Prenatal ultrasonography and Doppler sonography for the clinical investigation of isolated ventricular septal defects in a late second-trimester population

Variable β SE Ventricular septal defects (yes vs. no) P value
Odds ratio 95% confidence interval
NBL −0.37 0.12 0.69 0.55 to 0.87 0.001
UA PI  2.09 0.32 8.10 4.31 to 15.21 <0.0001
MCA PI −1.37 0.38 0.25 0.12 to 0.54 <0.0001
  1. MCA, middle cerebral artery; NBL, nasal bone length; PI, pulsatility index; UA, umbilical artery; SE, standard error.
