Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) can be associated with genetic or structural anomalies with poor prognosis. In isolated cases, survival is dependent on the degree of lung hypoplasia and liver position. Cases should be referred in utero to tertiary care centers familiar with this condition both for prediction of outcome as well as timed delivery. The(More)
Purpose:To evaluate the clinical utility of chromosomal microarrays for prenatal diagnosis by a prospective study of fetuses with abnormalities detected on ultrasound.Methods:Patients referred for prenatal diagnosis due to ultrasound anomalies underwent analysis by array comparative genomic hybridization as the first-tier diagnostic test.Results:A total of(More)
We report a patient with amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) in whom the occurrence of late onset, severe pulmonary oedema was due to isolated left ventricular (LV) failure. Following institution of diuretics and inotropic support, the situation promptly improved and follow-up haemodynamic assessment showed complete recovery of LV function. This report indicates(More)
To predict sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) and neurological impairment in congenital cytomegalovirus (cCMV) infection using MR imaging and define the best timing in pregnancy for prenatal assessment. In 121 patients with confirmed cCMV infection, brain features at MR imaging were respectively graded from 1 to 5: normal; isolated frontal/parieto–occipital(More)

Cystic fibrosis (CF; McKusick 21970) is a common autosomal recessive disease in the Caucasian population with an incidence of approximately 1 in 1600 live births and a carrier frequency of 1 in 20. The biochemical pathology of CF is unknown, but recent work has implicated anion transport across membranes as the physiological basis of the disease (Li et al.,(More)
To the best of our knowledge, we report the first case of a successful antenatal intervention in a double twin reversed arterial perfusion (TRAP) sequence in a monoamniotic monochorial triplet pregnancy. After diagnosis during first-trimester ultrasound, fetoscopic coagulation and transection of the umbilical cords of both acardiac members was performed at(More)
We studied the correlation between prenatal diagnosis and postmortem investigations in pregnancies terminated for renal malformations. Over a 5-year period, 77 cases of termination of pregnancy (TOP) for renal malformations were reviewed. Chromosomal anomalies (n = 9) and cases without conventional or virtual autopsy were excluded (n = 15). In 53 cases,(More)
