BACKGROUND Morbidly adherent placenta (MAP) is a serious obstetric complication causing mortality and morbidity. OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether outcomes of patients with MAP improve with increasing experience within a well-established multidisciplinary team at a single referral center. STUDY DESIGN All singleton pregnancies with pathology-confirmed MAP(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this meta-analysis is to assess the value of fetal cerebro-placental Doppler ratio (CPR) in predicting adverse perinatal outcome in pregnancies with fetal growth restriction (FGR). METHODS Three databases were used: MEDLINE, EMBASE (with online Ovid interface) and SCOPUS and studies from inception to April 2015 were included.(More)
Twin anemia polycythemia sequence (TAPS) is defined by significant intertwin hemoglobin discordance without the amniotic fluid discordance that characterizes twin-twin-transfusion syndrome (TTTS) in monochorionic twin pregnancies. TAPS is an uncommon condition which can either occur spontaneously, or following fetoscopic laser ablation for TTTS. This(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this systematic review is to provide a comprehensive overview on the clinical course, perinatal outcome, and effectiveness of prenatal management options for pericardial teratoma. METHODS A comprehensive search including Ovid MEDLINE, Ovid EMBASE, and Scopus was conducted from inception to September 2016. All studies that(More)
One of the most serious complications encountered during fetal surgery is fetal bradycardia, which may result in premature delivery or abandonment of the intervention. We report in this article two cases of fetal bradycardia encountered during and after fetoscopic repair of a myelomeningocele (MMC). Both cases elected to undergo experimental fetoscopic(More)
OBJECTIVES To establish a prediction model for fetal congenital heart disease (CHD) that could facilitate selective fetal echocardiography screening for diabetic women, and to provide cost analysis of selective versus global screening of these women. STUDY DESIGN A historical cohort study included women with pre-gestational diabetes who received perinatal(More)
The introduction of routine fetal ultrasound and the technical improvements in ultrasound equipment have greatly increased our ability to diagnose fetal anomalies. As a consequence, congenital anomalies are diagnosed today earlier and in a greater number of patients than ever before. The development of fetal intervention and fetal surgery techniques,(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aims to evaluate cardiac function in fetuses with intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) compared with healthy fetuses, using the left modified myocardial performance index (MPI) and the association between MPI and perinatal outcome. METHODS Pregnant women between 34 and 39 weeks of gestation, who met the criteria for IUGR and were(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the association between ultrasonographic renal parameters and urine biochemistry in fetuses with lower urinary tract obstruction (LUTO). METHODS Data were collected prospectively from 31 consecutive fetuses with LUTO that underwent vesicocentesis for fetal urinary biochemistry between April 2013 and September 2015. The following(More)
