However, one fifth of those in the prenatal-surgery group had evidence of the respiratory distress syndrome, which was probably caused by prematurity.

Hydrocephalus is treated by diverting cerebrospinal fluid to the peritoneal cavity by the surgical placement of a shunt, which then requires lifelong monitoring. Pathophysiology, prevention and potential treatment of neural tube defects. The trial was approved by the institutional review board at each center. Journal of Pediatric Urology. Childs Nerv Syst ; Risk factors, prenatal screening and diagnosis, and pregnancy management.

The month examination included radiography of the spine to determine the anatomical level of the lesion and magnetic resonance imaging of the head and spine. Pregnancy and Neonatal Complications There were no maternal deaths. Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn. We compared outcomes of in utero repair with standard postnatal repair.

Ranges of scores and implications of higher scores are provided in Table 4Table 4 Outcomes of Children at 30 Months. An independent data and safety monitoring committee monitored the trial. Shunt complications in the first postoperative year in children with meningomyelocele. Trained independent pediatricians and psychologists who were unaware of study-group assignments and who reported directly to the coordinating center conducted the testing. Movement in the lower limbs may be lost, and hindbrain herniation and hydrocephalus may worsen during fetal gestation.

For outcomes up to 30 months, the report is based on the findings in women who underwent randomization before December 1, Spina Bifida Fact Sheet. Pregnancy complications were more common among women in the prenatal-surgery group Table 2Table 2 Maternal and Fetal or Neonatal Outcomes.

The first outcome, at 12 months, was a composite of fetal or neonatal death or the need for a cerebrospinal fluid shunt either placement of the shunt or meeting objective criteria for its placement for details, see the Supplementary Appendix.

The trial was stopped for efficacy of prenatal surgery after the recruitment of of a planned patients.

This malformation is also associated with hydrocephalus and developmental brain abnormalities. Prenatal screening and testing. The Bayley scores were ranked across all infants, with fetal, neonatal, or infant deaths being assigned the lowest rank. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Mayo Clinic Health Letter.

Las pruebas no son perfectas. Discussion As compared with postnatal surgery, prenatal surgery for myelomeningocele that was performed before 26 weeks of gestation decreased the risk of death or need for shunting by the age of 12 months and also improved scores on a composite measure of mental and motor function, with adjustment for lesion level, at 30 months of age.

All other fetal-intervention centers in the United States agreed not to perform prenatal surgery for myelomeningocele while the trial was ongoing. The severity of the neurologic disability in the lower limbs is correlated with the level of the injury to the spinal cord. Fetuses that were treated prenatally were born at an average gestational age of Tal vez, sea necesario realizar adaptaciones durante el proceso, pero alienta a tu hijo a ser tan independiente como sea posible.

There were two deaths one in each group between 12 and 30 months of age; the death in the prenatal-surgery group was from coxsackie septicemia, and that in the postnatal-surgery group was from complications of chemotherapy for mielomennigocele plexus carcinoma. Routh JC, et al. Preterm labor leading to early delivery, placental abruption, and pulmonary edema associated with tocolytic therapy are well-known complications of prenatal surgery.


Escrito por el personal de Mielpmeningocele Clinic. Sleep-disordered breathing in patients with myelomeningocele. Infant secondary outcomes were radiographic appearance of components of the Chiari II malformation, as evaluated by mielomeningoceke radiologists; the time to the first shunt placement or meeting the criteria for such placement ; locomotion; the Psychomotor Development Index of the Bayley Scales; scores on the Peabody Developmental Motor Scales; the degree of functional impairment on the basis of physical examination; and the degree of disability, as measured by the WeeFIM Functional Independence Measure for Children instrument.

The most frequent form is myelomeningocele, characterized by the extrusion of the spinal cord into a sac filled with cerebrospinal fluid, resulting in lifelong disability. Swaroop VT, et al. Analyses were performed according to the intention-to-treat principle. Dukhovny S, et al. Pregnancy among mothers with spina bifida. Prenatal surgery also improved several secondary outcomes, including the degree of hindbrain herniation associated with the Chiari II malformation, motor function as measured by the difference between the neuromotor function level and anatomical lesion leveland the likelihood of being able to walk independently, as compared with postnatal surgery.

Primary Outcomes Two primary outcomes were prespecified.
