To evaluate perinatal outcome of fetuses with primary pleural effusions following pleuroamniotic shunting. 
Perinatal outcomes of fetal pleural effusion following thoracoamniotic shunting
The aim is to evaluate perinatal outcomes of fetal pleural effusion after thoracoamniotic shunting.
Prenatal management and thoracoamniotic shunting in primary fetal pleural effusions: a single centre experience
TLDR
The objective was to study the management and outcomes of pleural effusions in the unit and to determine whether thoracoamniotic shunting is needed if severe.
Primary fetal pleural effusion: Characteristics, outcomes, and the role of intervention
TLDR
The natural history and outcomes of fetal primary pleural effusions are presented and the benefits and risks of PPE are presented.
Prenatal diagnosis and natural history of fetuses presenting with pleural effusion
TLDR
To describe the natural history of fetuses presenting with pleural effusion, the fossil record is compared to that of animals exhibiting similar characteristics.
Fetal lung size after thoracoamniotic shunting reflects survival in primary fetal hydrothorax with hydrops
To assess the role of lung size and abnormal Doppler findings in the umbilical artery (UA) in determining the outcomes of fetuses with primary fetal hydrothorax (FHT) associated with hydrops who
Outcome of fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia and associated intrafetal fluid effusions managed in the era of fetal surgery
TLDR
The aim was to assess the outcome of fetuses with CDH and associated intrafetal fluid effusions and to determine the prognosis for babies born with congenital diaphragmatic hernia.
Fetal pleural effusion and Down syndrome.
TLDR
Fetal pleural effusion is a rare abnormality that results from accumulation of fluid in the chest cavity that varies significantly, ranging from spontaneous resolution to perinatal death.
Prognostic factors of hydrops fetalis with pleural effusion
TLDR
The aim of this study was to clarify the prognostic factors of HF with pleural effusion as well as the severity index of HF, which has not been fully investigated yet.

Outcome of fetal pleural effusions treated by thoracoamniotic shunting
TLDR
The objective was to study the outcome after thoracoamniotic shunting in the unit of Fetal pleural effusions, and to establish a protocol for future study of this procedure.
Isolated fetal hydrothorax with hydrops: a systematic review of prenatal treatment options
TLDR
Prenatal therapeutic interventions in pregnancies complicated by isolated fetal hydrothorax with hydrops are evaluated to evaluate the effect of prenatal therapeutic interventions on perinatal outcome.
Pleuroamniotic shunting for decompression of fetal pleural effusions.
TLDR
Pleuroamniotic shunting was performed at 22-35 weeks' gestation in 11 fetuses with pleural effusions to offer an experimental human model for the study of the effect of intrathoracic compression on pulmonary development.
Aspiration of Fetal Pleural Effusions or Ascites May Improve Neonatal Resuscitation
TLDR
Fetal centesis should be considered immediately before delivery to improve resuscitative efforts and ultimately survival when significant neonatal respiratory compromise is likely to occur due to pleural effusions and/or ascites.

Results of treatment of severe fetal hydrothorax with bilateral pleuroamniotic catheters.
TLDR
Bilateral pleural drainage catheters were placed antenatally to decompress the fetal chest in an effort to prolong pregnancy because of immature pulmonary studies and poor prognosis.

TLDR
Unusual antenatal treatment of a case of severe fetal hydrothorax with secondary polyhydramnios and preterm labor and delivery was delayed another 48 hours to allow steroid therapy.

Thoraco-amniotic shunting.
TLDR
Thoraco-amniotic shunting was performed in 51 singleton pregnancies for decompression and chronic drainage of fetal pleural effusions, and all 18 non-hydropic fetuses and 14 of the 28 with hydrops survived.
