Abstract

Objective

The goal of this pilot test is to compare Kurjak's antenatal neurological test (KANET) results between high and low-risk pregnancies and see the feasibility of using this test on a larger scale in Brazil.

Methods

We applied KANET test in high-risk (n = 17) and low-risk (n = 34) pregnancies and compared the results.

Results

There was a significant difference between groups of high-risk and low-risk pregnancies for all parameters in KANET score 2. For KANET score 0, 5 out of 8 parameters where significant different: isolated head anteflexion, cranial sutures and head circumference, isolated hand movement or hand to face movements, isolated leg movement and fingers movements. All abnormal KANET result came from high-risk pregnancies (17.6%). No low-risk pregnancies presented KANET score 0. Efficacy and effectiveness were not evaluated due to the imprecision inherent in data from small samples.

Conclusion

This successful preliminary study of KANET in Brazil showed important differences in fetal behavior between the low and high-risk pregnancies, and can be used as information of feasibility and identify modifications needed in the design of a larger testing study.
