Abstract null null Background null : Optimal prenatal care relies on accurate gestational age dating (GA). After the first trimester, current GA estimation methods’ accuracy diminishes with increasing GA. Considering that in many countries, access to first trimester CRL is still difficult due to late-booking, infrequent access to prenatal care and unavailability of early ultrasound examination, the development of accurate methods for GA estimation in second and third trimester of pregnancy remai...

Perinatal asphyxia is a major cause of severe brain damage and death. For its prenatal identification, Doppler ultrasound has been used as a surrogate marker of fetal hypoxia. However, Doppler evaluation cannot be performed continuously. We have evaluated the performance of a miniaturized multiparametric sensor aiming to evaluate tissular oxygen and pH changes continuously in an umbilical cord occlusion (UCO) sheep model. The electrochemical sensors were inserted in fetal hindlimb skeletal muscl...

OBJECTIVE To evaluate left myocardial performance index (MPI) and its time intervals in monochorionic diamniotic (MCDA) twin pairs complicated by selective fetal growth restriction (sFGR) with abnormal (persistent -type II- or intermittent -type III- absent or reversed end-diastolic flow) umbilical artery Doppler. METHODS Retrospective study including 16 MCDA twin pairs with sFGR type II, 26 MCDA twin pairs with sFGR type III and 42 gestational age-matched uncomplicated MCDA twin pairs in a sing...

Objectives null To determine the prevalence of brain anomalies in fetuses eligible for prenatal open spina bifida (OSB) repair at the time of preoperative assessment, and to explore the relationship with the features of spinal defect. null Methods null Retrospective cross-sectional multicentric study in fetal medicine centers on fetuses undergoing OSB fetal surgery repair. Magnetic Resonance (MR) images obtained as part of the pre-surgical assessment were re-evaluated including: 1) the type and ...

Objective null Children with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) are at risk for neurodevelopmental delay. Herein we report on prenatal changes in biometry and brain perfusion in fetuses with isolated CDH. null Study design null This retrospective study evaluated fetuses with isolated, left-sided CDH in three European referral centers. Abdominal circumference (AC), femur length (FL), head circumference (HC), transcerebellar diameter (TCD), middle cerebral artery (MCA) Doppler, and ventricular ...

OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to explore whether neurosonography can detect differences in cortical development and corpus callosum length in late-onset small fetuses sub-classified into small-for-gestational age (SGA) or fetal growth restriction (FGR). METHODS A prospective cohort study in 318 singleton pregnancies including 97 normally grown and 221 late-onset small fetuses (birthweight below the 10th centile diagnosed after 32 weeks of gestation). Small fetuses were sub-classified into ...

INTRODUCTION Preterm prelabor rupture of membranes (PPROM) is a common complication after fetal surgeries. The aim of this study was to assess risk factors for and outcomes after PPROM following cord occlusion (CO) in monochorionic diamniotic (MCDA) pregnancies. METHODS This was a retrospective cohort study of 188 consecutive MCDA pregnancies treated by bipolar or laser CO, either primarily because of discordant malformation (dMF) or severe selective fetal growth restriction (sFGR), or secondari...

Introduction This study aimed to evaluate corpus callosum (CC) size by neurosonography (NSG) in fetuses with isolated major congenital heart defect (CHD) and explore the association with the type of CHD according to the main expected brain oxygen supply patterns. Methods A total of 56 fetuses with CHD and 56 controls were included. Fetuses with CHD were stratified into two different categories according to the main expected pattern of cerebral arterial oxygen supply: class A, severe reduction in...

Abstract Hypoxia is a common medical problem, sometimes difficult to detect and caused by different situations. Control of hypoxia is of great medical importance and early detection is essential to prevent life threatening complications. However, the few current methods are invasive, expensive, and risky. Thus, the development of reliable and accurate sensors for the continuous monitoring of hypoxia is of vital importance for clinical monitoring. Herein, we report an implantable sensor to addres...
