Tracheoesophageal displacement index and predictors of airway obstruction for fetuses with neck masses.

Abstract

PURPOSE There are no established selection guidelines to determine which fetuses with giant neck masses may benefit from delivery using an ex utero intrapartum treatment procedure. The purposes of this study were to describe the tracheoesophageal displacement index (TEDI), a novel measurement of fetal airway displacement, and to correlate this measurement… (More)
