Sonographic predictors of survival in fetal diaphragmatic hernia.
Fetal lung lesions: management and outcome.
Cystic adenomatoid malformation volume ratio predicts outcome in prenatally diagnosed cystic adenomatoid malformation of the lung.
The authors report the results of prospective use of the CVR both to track tumor growth and regression during gestation and confirm its predictive value in fetuses with CAM, suggesting its usefulness as a predictor of outcome in CAM.
A randomized trial of prenatal versus postnatal repair of myelomeningocele.
Prenatal surgery for myelomeningocele reduced the need for shunting and improved motor outcomes at 30 months but was associated with maternal and fetal risks and increased risk of preterm delivery and uterine dehiscence at delivery.
Creation of myelomeningocele in utero: a model of functional damage from spinal cord exposure in fetal sheep.
Liver position and lung-to-head ratio for prediction of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and survival in isolated left congenital diaphragmatic hernia.
Sacrococcygeal teratoma: prenatal assessment, fetal intervention, and outcome.
Diminished interleukin 6 (IL-6) production during scarless human fetal wound repair.
Diminished production of inflammatory cytokines such as IL-6 may be responsible for the lack of inflammation seen during fetal wound healing and may provide a permissive environment for scarless wound healing.
The EXIT procedure: experience and outcome in 31 cases.
The EXIT procedure was used successfully to ensure uteroplacental gas exchange and fetal hemodynamic stability during a variety of surgical procedures performed to secure the fetal airway or ensure successful transition to postnatal environment.
Fetal wound repair results in scar formation in interleukin-10-deficient mice in a syngeneic murine model of scarless fetal wound repair.

Wounds in normal fetal skin grafts showed minimal inflammation and normal dermal reticular collagen pattern at the site of the wound, consistent with scarless repair, while wounds in IL-10 knockout fetal skin transplants showed significant inflammation and scar formation.
