OBJECTIVE To examine the impact of fetal myelomeningocele (MMC) repair on fetal head biometry and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) spaces assessed by magnetic resonance imaging (MR) studies. STUDY DESIGN Axial measurements of intracranial structures were taken at defined anatomical landmarks. Pre- and postnatal head biometry data and CSF spaces obtained from in utero repaired MMC fetuses (n = 22) were compared to the pre- and postnatal measurements of MMC patients that underwent standard… CONTINUE READING
