This study will evaluate diagnostic accuracy and management outcome studies involving patients assessed with prenatal ultrasound diagnosis (PUD) for fetal renal abnormalities (FRA).
This article was published in the following journal.
To investigate the potential value of routine ultrasound examination at 35-37 weeks' gestation in the diagnosis of previously unknown fetal abnormalities.
Skeletal dysplasias are a heterogeneous group of conditions, many of which present unexpectedly in the prenatal period with a variety of ultrasound findings. Accurate prenatal diagnosis can now be fac...
To examine the performance of the routine 11-13 weeks scan in detecting fetal non-chromosomal abnormalities.
To evaluate the accuracy of ultrasound in prenatal diagnosis of Placenta accrete spectrum disorders in patients with posterior placenta previa, and to assess the impact of prenatal diagnosis in our po...
Fetal micrognathia can be detected early in pregnancy. Prognosis of micrognathia depends on the risk of respiratory distress at birth and on the long-term risk of intellectual disability. The purpose ...
This study is evaluating the impact of prenatal sequencing on the management of fetuses with ultrasound abnormalities. The hypothesis is that a significant subset of fetal abnormalities ha...
Objective: The small bowel volvulus is a rare cause of intestinal obstruction which may occur in utero and whose prenatal diagnosis is difficult.Sonographic signs are mainly indirect and ...
Prenatal diagnosis of genetic diseases is a real medical challenge. The discovery of antenatal abnormalities on ultrasound is frequent (5 to 10% of pregnancies), and when an abnormalities ...
Abdominal circumference (AC) in the fetus is the single most useful indicator of fetal growth abnormalities. Measurement of AC as well as DVP do not require extensive training. Our objecti...
To establish a genotyping and extraction technology of non invasive prenatal diagnosis for fetal blood group genotype from cell-free fetal DNA in peripheral blood of pregnant women. To ac...
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.
An umbrella term used to describe a pattern of disabilities and abnormalities that result from fetal exposure to ETHANOL during pregnancy. It encompasses a phenotypic range that can vary greatly between individuals, but reliably includes one or more of the following: characteristic facial dysmorphism, FETAL GROWTH RETARDATION, central nervous system abnormalities, cognitive and/or behavioral dysfunction, BIRTH DEFECTS. The level of maternal alcohol consumption does not necessarily correlate directly with disease severity.
A prenatal ultrasonic measurement of the thickness or translucent area below the SKIN in the back of the fetal NECK, or nape of the neck, during the first 11-14 weeks of gestation (PREGNANCY TRIMESTER, FIRST). Abnormal thickness or nuchal translucent measurements resulting from fluid collection, is associated with increased risks of CHROMOSOME ABNORMALITIES. (Nicolaides et al., 1992)
A clear, yellowish liquid that envelopes the FETUS inside the sac of AMNION. In the first trimester, it is likely a transudate of maternal or fetal plasma. In the second trimester, amniotic fluid derives primarily from fetal lung and kidney. Cells or substances in this fluid can be removed for prenatal diagnostic tests (AMNIOCENTESIS).
Use of reflected ultrasound in the diagnosis of intracranial pathologic processes.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
