OBJECTIVE We propose to specify the different criteria of estimation and management in presence of a ultrasound discovery of a choroid plexus cyst. METHOD A detailed review of the literature about this subject allowed to better apprehend the different attitudes taken up by the authors. RESULTS Fetal choroid plexus cysts (CPC) are potentially useful(More)
OBJECTIVE To value the rate of chromosomal abnormalities and evolution of children who had a prenatal diagnosis of fetal nuchal translucency in the first trimester. MATERIAL AND METHODS Multicenter prospective study conducted in 4,582 patients who had a first ultrasonography between 10 and 14 weeks' gestation (abdominal and/or transvaginal sonography).(More)
OBJECTIVE We describe the different ultrasound findings suggestive of trisomy 18. PATIENTS AND METHODS We conducted a retrospective study in 40 cases of trisomy 18 diagnosed in the department of obstetrics at the Lille University Hospital between 1988 and 1998. RESULTS Eighty percent of the women in this series were multiparous. Mean maternal age at(More)
The authors report eight cases of an intra-uterine pseudo-sac giving a wrong diagnosis of intra-uterine pregnancy. In two cases there was hypertrophy of the uterine mucosa and in six cases there was decidual change. The pseudo-sac corresponds to: either a blood clot held by the uterine mucosa; or a marked hypertrophy of the endometrium with intense(More)
Gyration abnormalities often reflect severe neurological diseases. Their diagnosis is impeded by our limited knowledge about normal sulci anatomy throughout fetal brain development. Primary sulci appears in a specific chronology which is unchanged among all fetuses. We think it is interesting to remind of sulci anatomy and then to depict sulci MRI and(More)
We reviewed the literature on ultrasonographic criteria allowing prenatal diagnosis of chromosome aberrations, especially the most frequent: trisomy. Signs vary depending on the term of the ultrasound examination (first trimester ultrasound is often performed to early and several signs are observed in the second trimester). During the first trimester, the(More)
OBJECTIVES In case of hyperechogenic fetal bowel (HFB), invasive procedures such as amniocentesis are often proposed to detect an underlying cause. Our goal is to study etiologies and prognosis of HFB according to antenatal sonographic findings in order to evaluate the relevance of antenatal assessment. MATERIALS AND METHODS It is a retrospective(More)
OBJECTIVE Improvement in prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome imposes to sonographers to realize good quality nuchal translucency measurements, which can be used for assessment of combined risk. The aim of our study was to evaluate a training program of 109 sonographers for measuring nuchal translucency and scoring their own image. STUDY DESIGN After a(More)
