Question: In reports it founds single umbilical artery what it means
Answer: Your baby is likely to be fine. Having only one artery, called a single umbilical artery (SUA), shouldn't affect his health.
Usually, an umbilical cord has two arteries, along with a single vein. The vein carries oxygen and nutrients to your baby, and the arteries remove waste products.
The person performing your scan(sonographer) will check that your baby has two normal kidneys. A baby with an SUA has a slightly increased risk of having kidney problems.
But as long as your baby's kidneys appear to be working fine, your sonographer won't be concerned. Nearly all babies with a single artery are perfectly healthy, and your baby won't need a kidney scan after he's born.
However, you may be offered further scans, just to keep an eye on your baby's growth. This is because babies with an SUA may grow at a slower rate.
SUA affects somewhere between one in 100 and one in 500 pregnancies. An SUA is more common in twin pregnancies. It's also more common in pregnancies where the umbilical cord attaches to the edge of the placenta, rather than in the middle.
In many hospitals, the sonographer won't count the number of vessels in the cord during an anomaly scan. It's not a requirement of the screening guidelines that sonographers follow. That's because an SUA is considered to be a normal variation in how a baby grows.
It's likely that your baby looked perfectly healthy during your scan. If other abnormalities had been spotted along with the SUA, you would have been referred to a fetal medicine specialist for a more detailed scan.
