Rare causes of fetal anemia requiring intrauterine transfusion (IUT) are challenging for fetal medicine specialists.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Fetal diagnosis and therapy
Doppler ultrasound measurements of the peak systolic velocity of the middle cerebral artery can be used to non-invasively diagnose fetal anemia but are less precise following fetal blood transfusion a...
Only few studies have reported on Jra alloimmunization in pregnancy, and its clinical course remains unclear. We reviewed our cases to clarify the change in the peak systolic velocity of the middle ce...
Anemia is a major cause of global morbidity and mortality, particularly among children. Management of anemia depends on causes and severity of anemia. However blood transfusion is a lifesaving interve...
Limited research exists that investigates the language parents and health professionals use when faced with a high-risk likelihood of fetal demise or an instance of fetal loss. This review examines th...
The aim of this work was to investigate the association between maternal and fetal characteristics and the fetal fraction at 8-14 weeks' gestation, with emphasis on the change in the fetal fraction up...
INTRODUCTION Circulatory changes associated with fetal anemia have an important role in maintaining sufficient tissue oxygenation. With fetal anemia, hyperdynamic circulation and increase...
This study will be conducted to show the effect of different degrees of maternal iron deficiency anemia on fetal hemodynamics and neonatal outcome and to evaluate the effect of treatment.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether Gum Arabic is effective as fetal hemoglobin inducing agent for sickle cell anemia patients.
Iron deficiency anemia is a worldwide medical disorder. So far, it is the most common medical complication in pregnancy specially in developing countries. It is the cause of many adverse e...
Fetal research and clinical practice has been hampered by a lack of suitable investigational techniques. Currently, ultrasound is the only widely used method of studying fetal anatomy and ...
A condition characterized by the abnormal presence of ERYTHROBLASTS in the circulation of the FETUS or NEWBORNS. It is a disorder due to BLOOD GROUP INCOMPATIBILITY, such as the maternal alloimmunization by fetal antigen RH FACTORS leading to HEMOLYSIS of ERYTHROCYTES, hemolytic anemia (ANEMIA, HEMOLYTIC), general edema (HYDROPS FETALIS), and SEVERE JAUNDICE IN NEWBORN.
The major component of hemoglobin in the fetus. This HEMOGLOBIN has two alpha and two gamma polypeptide subunits in comparison to normal adult hemoglobin, which has two alpha and two beta polypeptide subunits. Fetal hemoglobin concentrations can be elevated (usually above 0.5%) in children and adults affected by LEUKEMIA and several types of ANEMIA.
A nonreassuring fetal status (NRFS) indicating that the FETUS is compromised (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists 1988). It can be identified by sub-optimal values in FETAL HEART RATE; oxygenation of FETAL BLOOD; and other parameters.
A complication of pregnancy in which the UMBILICAL CORD wraps around the fetal neck once or multiple times. In some cases, cord entanglement around fetal neck may not affect pregnancy outcome significantly. In others, the nuchal cord may lead to restricted fetal blood flow, oxygen transport, fetal development, fetal movement, and complicated delivery at birth.
Prenatal interventions to correct fetal anomalies or treat FETAL DISEASES in utero. Fetal therapies include several major areas, such as open surgery; FETOSCOPY; pharmacological therapy; INTRAUTERINE TRANSFUSION; STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION; and GENE THERAPY.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
