Lund University is the largest university in Scandinavia (38 000 students) with all faculties represented. Within the faculty of Medicine, the Skane University Hospital has two sites – Lund University Hospital Lund, the referral centre for the Health Care Region of Southern Sweden (1.4 million inhabitants) and University Hospital Malmö, serving Malmö City (300 000 inhabitants). The clinical department of Obstetrics and Gynecology has also two sites (Lund and Malmö), with about 9,000 deliveries annually. It is the referral centre for complicated pregnancies from a background population of 1.7 million inhabitants and around 350 pregnancies with fetal growth restriction are managed. The two ultrasound units perform > 20,000 fetal scans and about 200 invasive procedures under ultrasound guidance annually. The department is very active within obstetrics and perinatology research – clinical studies, development of new non-invasive methods for fetal surveillance, molecular biological studies and animal experimental studies (sheep and rabbit models). Research interests include intrauterine growth restriction (pathophysiology, perinatal management, follow-up studies of cohorts up to 25 years of age). Each year, 4-5 doctoral theses are presented and between 40 and 65 original peer-reviewed papers are published.

A close cooperation is established with the department of paediatrics/neonatology, department of psychology and department of vascular surgery including a unit for interventional radiology. The department of neonatology is a level 3 neonatal intensive care unit with 40 beds (10 intensive care beds). The interventional unit has experience in performing uterine arterial catheterizations in obstetrics to prevent or treat post-partum haemorrhage in cases of pathological placentation, in addition to other vessel procedures. The unit which is central to our department, has access to an operation theatre with X-ray equipment for perioperative radiological interventions.
