Aims and Objectives: To determine the gestational age specific changes in fetal aortic isthmus flow indices in third trimester gestation and to compare the changes with varying time period of third trimester of gestation. Results: It was observed that PSV and TAMAX increases with gestational age with correlation coefficient r=0.436 and 0.414 respectively and p value <.005. MD and ED also show a positive increasing trend with gestational age. Conclusions: This study provides normative values of PSV, EDV, PI and TAMAX with gestational age in third trimester of gestation. Studies are needed for prognostic value of these indices.
