BACKGROUND: Surveillance of congenital anomalies is important to identify potential teratogens. METHODS: This study analysed the prevalence of 61 congenital anomaly subgroups (excluding chromosomal) in 25 population-based EUROCAT registries (1980-2012). Live births, fetal deaths and terminations of pregnancy for fetal anomaly were analysed with multilevel random-effects Poisson regression models. RESULTS: Seventeen anomaly subgroups had statistically significant trends from 2003-2012; 12 increasing and 5 decreasing...

Objective: To explore the clinical characteristics of interrupted of the inferior vena cava with azygous continuation and the prognosis. Methods: Retrospective analysis of 21 fetuses diagnosed with interrupted inferior vena cava with azygous continuation among 28 567 pregnant women who underwent routine ultrasound scan. The clinical data, ultrasonographic features, genetic information and prognosis were collected. Results: Interrupted of the inferior vena cava with azygous continuation occurred in 21(0.07%, 21/28 567) of 28 567 patients...

The aim of this study was to describe the risk of aneuploidy, associated structural anomalies and clinical outcome in pregnancies with the prenatal double bubble sign. A retrospective study on ultrasound reports and pregnancy outcomes was performed in 71 foetuses with double bubble sign, who were examined at the Guangzhou Women and Children Medical Center during a five-year period. Forty-nine patients had the regular prenatal care since first trimester; of these, 20 had the sonographic sign before 24 weeks and the remaining 29 had the sonographic diagnosis after 24 weeks...

AIM: To analyze the impact of counseling on antenatal congenital surgical anomalies (ACSA). METHODS: Cases presenting with ACSA for fetal counseling and those presenting in post-natal period following diagnosis of ACSA (PACSA) for surgical opinion were analyzed for spectrum, presentation and outcome. RESULTS: 117 cases including ACSA(68);PACSA(49) were analyzed. Gestational age at diagnosis of ACSA;PACSA was 17-37;17-39 weeks (median 24;32 weeks)...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to determine the risk of aneuploidy, associated structural anomalies, and pregnancy outcome in the presence of prenatal double bubble sign detection. METHOD: We have performed a retrospective study on ultrasound reports and pregnancy outcomes in 42 fetuses with double bubble sign examined in our ultrasound department between 1998 and 2013. RESULTS: Additional major defects or aneuploidy markers were present in 24 fetuses...

The estimated incidence of melanoma complicating pregnancy has ranged from 0.1 to 2.8 per 1,000 pregnancies. Here the Authors present a case of a 40-year-old pregnant woman, who was admitted to the Clinic of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in 26 weeks of gestation, with diagnosis of melanoma and suspected with fetal anomaly, as possible bowel obstruction, and polyhydraminos. The melanoma was asported with a wide local excision under local anesthesia. Histological evaluation revealed melanoma Stage Ib (Clark IV, Breslow thickness 1...

BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of duodenal atresia is commonly made prenatally, either as an isolated lesion or due to its association with other chromosomal abnormalities (Robertson et al. in Semin Perinatol 18:182-195, 1994; Hemming and Rankin in J Prenat Diagn 27:1205-1211, 2007). The aim of this study was to describe the prevalence of associated anomalies, prenatal diagnostic accuracy and survival of cases of congenital duodenal atresia in our institution. METHODS: All cases of duodenal atresia registered with our local congenital anomaly register over a 10-year period, 1995-2004 inclusive, were studied, including those resulting in termination of pregnancies, stillbirths, intrauterine deaths and neonatal deaths...

BACKGROUND: Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common congenital disorder at birth. Yagel and colleagues's method of heart examination has been proved valuable in finding CHD prenatally in single pregnancies. The aim of this study was to analyze the frequency of CHD in twin pregnancies and the sensitivity of the method. METHODS: A total of 1103 pregnant women with twins were enrolled in this study, including 127 cases with high-risk for CHD. Five transverse ultrasound measurements were used for fetal heart examination, including the upper abdomen view, four-chamber view, five-chamber view, pulmonary artery bifurcation view, and three-vessel view...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the value and clinical significance of congenital heart diseases (CHD) detection in twins. METHODS: A total of 1103 twins were included in this study (127 twins were at high risk for CHD). The fetal hearts were scanned by ultrasound using Yagel's heart examination method. Autopsies were done when the pregnancy was terminated. And blood samples from fetal hearts or umbilical veins were used to evaluate fetal chromosomes. A close follow-up was conducted for normal heart cases and another heart examination was done within three months after birth...

The early ultrasound prenatal diagnosis of congenital diaphragmatic hernia is uncommon and suggests a poor outcome. We report 2 cases diagnosed at 10 and 12 weeks' gestation, with increased fetal nuchal translucency thickness (4 and 11 mm) and associated abnormalities (complex heart defect in one and many malformations in the other, including duodenal atresia and asplenia). In 1 case, the baby was delivered vaginally at 36 weeks, but neonatal death occurred; the pregnancy was terminated at 15 weeks in the second case...

BACKGROUND: In 1968 the first antenatal diagnosis of Down's syndrome was made and screening on the basis of selecting women of advanced maternal age for amniocentesis was gradually introduced into medical practice. In 1983 it was shown that low maternal serum alpha fetoprotein (AFP) was associated with Down's syndrome. Later, raised maternal serum human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG), and low unconjugated oestriol (uE3) were found to be markers of Down's syndrome. In 1988 the three biochemical markers were used together with maternal age as a method of screening, and this has been widely adopted...

Ultrasound examination of a 22-week fetus demonstrated a grossly distended stomach and proximal duodenum, with a large cystic area in the chest. There was associated polyhydramnios. A presumptive diagnosis of duodenal atresia with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia was made. Analysis of a fetal blood sample showed that the fetus had Down's syndrome. Histological examination after termination of the pregnancy revealed the unusual combination of duodenal and esophageal atresia, with an intact diaphragm.

A 5-year prospective prenatal study in 151 pregnancies with 152 malformed fetuses detected by ultrasound was evaluated cytogenetically. Thirty-five fetuses (23%) had abnormal karyotypes. Specific anatomical fetal malformations identified by ultrasound increase the risk for fetal chromosome abnormalities. Risks of abnormal chromosomes in the fetus are present with both single and multiple anomalies including amniotic fluid volume although the risk is increased with specific anatomical systems and multiple malformations...
