[Antenatal echographic measurement of the fetal cerebellum. Significance in the evaluation of fetal development].
TLDR
Regular growth of the cerebellum seems to be independent of other biometric parameters and also of the population studied, demonstrated by comparing it with curves that have been made by other teams, which should give an extra feature in investigating fetal growth.
[The history of the drop. Prolapse of the umbilical cord].

Prenatal diagnosis of cystic fibrosis: ultrasonography of the gallbladder at 17-19 weeks of gestation.
TLDR
Investigation of ultrasonographic signs in 197 risk fetuses and compared them with 353 control fetuses shows that ultrasonography appears to be a good additional diagnostic tool for the prenatal diagnosis of cystic fibrosis, especially when the enzyme activities disagree.
Prenatal diagnosis in 200 pregnancies with a 1-in-4 risk of cystic fibrosis
TLDR
The results of the study suggest that prenatal diagnosis of cystic fibrosis can be performed with an accuracy of 98%.
[Accidental ultrasonographic disclosure of isolated intra-abdominal fetal hyperechogenicity. Apropos of a series of 87 cases].
TLDR
When ultrasound signs of intra-abdominal hyperechogenicity are found the diagnosis of cystic fibrosis should not be thought of first, because the majority of fetuses who had this sign were born without any malformation.
Complications of diagnostic ultrasound-guided percutaneous umbilical blood sampling: analysis of a series of 341 cases and review of the literature.
TLDR
It seems that the fetal mortality rate is closely related to: (a) the state of the fetus and thus to the indication of the procedure, and (b) the natural history of the conditions for which the procedure was conducted and the time taken to conduct the procedure and the number of punctures.

The authors think that this method, because of its reliability and the speed with which results are obtained, should be a method of choice for screening for chromosome abnormalities which might be thought to exist from the pictures obtained by ultrasound.
[Fortuitous discovery in echography of an isolated fetal intra-abdominal hyperechogenic mass. 87 cases].
TLDR
When ultrasound signs of intra-abdominal hyper-echogenicity are found the diagnosis of cystic fibrosis should not be thought of first, because the majority of fetuses who had this sign were born without any malformation.
