Investigation and management of antenatally
The cause of death is therefore attributable to an intrauterine asphyxia caused by acute mechanical compression of the umbilical cord, difficult to detect antenatally
If diagnosed antenatally
, these patients can undergo the Ex utero Intrapartum Treatment procedure, and the airway can be secured by either intubation or tracheostomy (3).
Our study design differed from the traditional case-control study design, as we did not compare IUGR cases to healthy controls; instead we compared antenatally
undetected IUGR neonates (cases) to detected IUGR neonates (controls).
Finally, like our patient, those with late-presenting congenital diaphragmatic hernia have a better prognosis than those diagnosed antenatally
. In one case series, infants diagnosed by antenatal ultrasound had a higher risk of pulmonary hypertension and increased mortality when compared to those diagnosed after birth .
On a positive note, Allahdin and Kambhampati (2012) cited a Cochrane review that reported a decrease in incontinence for those women performing pelvic floor exercises antenatally
and lower risk postpartum with exercises.
Although the ocular abnormalities are undetectable by prenatal ultrasound, many of the CNS and skeletal anomalies can be identified antenatally
. Therefore, serial ultrasound examinations should be performed on adults who have a clinical illness consistent with ZV infection or who have traveled to an endemic area or have a sexual partner who has been in an endemic area.
Objective: This study summarises the outcomes of 149 patients who underwent surgery for antenatally
diagnosed unilateral hydronephrosis.
and if you've done your homework really well antenatally
, then they'll generally phone you less with minor questions and do better in the labour and birth.
The rationale behind the current study was to embrace the Zeitgeist by using an intervention, Comfort Zone (McLackland et al 2013) which had previously been piloted and found to be useful in a postnatal group to see if it could be helpful to parents antenatally
In summary, GCTs are the most common type of teratomas in the newborn period with the majority of them diagnosed antenatally
. Based on the size, location and complexity of these tumors, optimal management should involve a multidisciplinary team comprised of an obstetrician, neonatologist, surgeon, anesthesiologist, radiologist and oncologist.
