Summary of "Prenatal Incidence and Clinical Value of the Absence of 12th Ribs in a Population in a Setting of Detailed Second-Trimester Sonography."

We aimed to determine the incidence of the absence of the (last) 12th ribs in a population in a setting of detailed 2nd-trimester sonography using three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound and to assess whether or not this may be related to chromosomal aneuploidies.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The total number of cases of a given disease in a specified population at a designated time. It is differentiated from INCIDENCE, which refers to the number of new cases in the population at a given time.

Ongoing scrutiny of a population (general population, study population, target population, etc.), generally using methods distinguished by their practicability, uniformity, and frequently their rapidity, rather than by complete accuracy.

A childhood seizure disorder characterized by rhythmic electrical brain discharges of generalized onset. Clinical features include a sudden cessation of ongoing activity usually without loss of postural tone. Rhythmic blinking of the eyelids or lip smacking frequently accompanies the SEIZURES. The usual duration is 5-10 seconds, and multiple episodes may occur daily. Juvenile absence epilepsy is characterized by the juvenile onset of absence seizures and an increased incidence of myoclonus and tonic-clonic seizures.
