PurposeThis study aims to examine the association between maternal smoking during pregnancy and neural tube defects (NTDs) in offspring.MethodsWe retrieved published studies on the association between maternal smoking during pregnancy and NTDs risk in offspring. Meta-analysis was applied to calculate the overall odds ratios (ORs) and their 95 % confidence intervals (CIs). The publication bias was assessed by the Egger’s regression asymmetry test and Begg’s rank correlation test.ResultsThe… 
Association between maternal smoking history and congenital anomalies in children: Results from the Japan Environment and Children's Study
TLDR
The results indicate that continuing to smoke during pregnancy is associated with increased risk of trisomy and any congenital anomalies in the general Japanese population.
Comment on: “Indigenous Medicine Use for Sex Selection During Pregnancy and Risk of Congenital Malformations: A Population-Based Case–Control Study in Haryana, India”
TLDR
The study is very important for pointing out an interesting and preventable measure, indigenous medicine use, for major congenital malformations, with a focus on indigenous medicines for sex selection, and seems to ignore a very important confounder, maternal smoking.
Association of paternal smoking with the risk of neural tube defects in offspring: A systematic review and meta‐analysis of observational studies
The present study aimed at providing some epidemiological evidences to assess the association of paternal smoking with the risk of neural tube defects (NTDs) and its specific subtypes in offspring,
Registries of cases with neural tube defects in Denizli, Turkey, 2004-2010.
TLDR
Development of NTD is influenced by nutrition, socioeconomic factors, and the use of folic acid during the peri-conceptional period, and studies examining the effect of these factors on NTD in Turkey and a review of primary prevention measures are necessary.

TLDR
It is unclear whether the incidence of neural tube defects (NTDs) is greater with maternal smoking or with passive smoking during pregnancy, but research suggests maternal smoking is associated with higher incidence of NTDs.
Comparison at the first prenatal visit of the maternal dietary intakes of smokers with non-smokers in a large maternity hospital: a cross-sectional study
TLDR
It is found that women who continue to smoke during pregnancy have serious dietary inadequacies which could potentially aggravate fetal growth restriction associated with direct toxicity from cigarettes.
Exposure to Tobacco, Environmental Tobacco Smoke and Nicotine in Pregnancy: A Pragmatic Overview of Reviews of Maternal and Child Outcomes, Effectiveness of Interventions and Barriers and Facilitators to Quitting
TLDR
Counselling interventions are modestly effective, while incentive-based interventions appear to substantially increase smoking cessation, and nicotine replacement therapy is effective during pregnancy but the evidence is not conclusive.

Maternal smoking in pregnancy and birth defects: a systematic review based on 173 687 malformed cases and 11.7 million controls
TLDR
Birth defects that are positively associated with maternal smoking should now be included in public health educational materials to encourage more women to quit before or during pregnancy.
Parental recreational drug use and risk for neural tube defects.
TLDR
Periconceptional maternal use of recreational drugs increased the risk of having neural tube defect (NTD)-affected pregnancies but decreased risks observed for these maternal exposures were due to reporting bias, a disproportionate number of drug-exposed NTD cases among spontaneous abortuses that could not be ascertained, or some other bias.
Maternal Smoking During Pregnancy and the Risk of Congenital Heart Defects in Offspring: A Systematic Review and Metaanalysis
TLDR
It is suggested that maternal smoking is modestly associated with an increased risk of CHDs and some CHD subtypes and atrioventricular septal defects.
Maternal periconceptional smoking and alcohol consumption and risk for select congenital anomalies.
TLDR
It is observed that maternal alcohol intake increased the risk for d-transposition of the great arteries, NTDs, and multiple CLP in infants, by contrast, smoking was associated with a lower risk of N TDs and conotruncal heart defects.
A case-control study of maternal smoking and congenital malformations.
TLDR
It is concluded that maternal smoking during pregnancy is associated with an increased risk for some malformations, including microcephalus, cleft defects, and club foot.
Congenital malformations and maternal smoking during pregnancy.
TLDR
It is concluded that smoking is unlikely to be responsible for a large increase in malformations at birth and smoking status for women in the CPP.
Maternal smoking and the risk of congenital birth defects: a cohort study.
TLDR
Women who smoke during pregnancy have infants that are significantly smaller and of shorter gestational age compared with mothers who do not smoke, however, gestational smoking is unlikely to cause a large increase in congenital birth defects.
Maternal smoking, passive tobacco smoke, and neural tube defects.
TLDR
Results suggest that maternal exposure to passive smoke is associated with NTDs, and women who plan on becoming pregnant should minimize their exposure to Passive smoke and refrain from smoking.
Maternal periconceptional factors affect the risk of spina bifida-affected pregnancies: an Italian case–control study
TLDR
It is pointed out that a common underlying mechanism, a disturbed folate/homocysteine metabolism, may be causative for the burden of spina bifida in the Italian population.
Maternal smoking and congenital malformations: an epidemiological study.
TLDR
It was found that women who reported smoking more than 20 cigarettes a day during pregnancy had a relative risk of about 1.6 for congenital malformations in the offspring of that pregnancy compared with women who said they had not smoked at all during pregnancy.
