  • open fetal surgery
  • The first open fetal surgery in the world was performed at UCSF in the early 1980's. (ucsf.edu)
  • Open fetal surgery is similar in many respects to a normal cesarean section performed under general anesthesia, except that the fetus remains dependent on the placenta and is returned to the uterus. (wikipedia.org)
  • Open fetal surgery is possible first after approximately 18 weeks of gestation due to fetal size and fragility before that, and up to approximately 30 weeks of gestation due to increased risk of premature labor and, practically, the preference for delivering the child and performing the surgery ex utero instead. (wikipedia.org)
  • Open fetal surgery has proven to be reasonably safe for the mother. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other conditions that potentially are treated by open fetal surgery include: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (if indicated at all, it is now more likely to be treated by endoscopic fetal surgery) Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation Congenital heart disease Pulmonary sequestration Sacrococcygeal teratoma Minimally-invasive fetoscopic surgery has proven to be very useful for some, but not all, fetal conditions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cardiology
  • The multidisciplinary approach we use combines the expertise of our Pediatric Surgery Division with the expertise of leaders from established programs in perinatal genetics, radiology, maternal-fetal medicine, nursing, anesthesia, cardiology, and neonatal medicine. (ucsf.edu)

  • Syndrome
  • Fetal aortic stenosis impairs left ventricular development, which can lead to hypoplastic left heart syndrome. (wikipedia.org)
  • practice
  • The faculty of the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine practice at several sites across Washington, and are continuing to expand their care and services to patients throughout the region. (washington.edu)
  • University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC) is the primary Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) practice site with approximately 1900 deliveries annually. (washington.edu)
  • pregnancy
  • Fetal deaths later in pregnancy (at 20 weeks of gestation or more, or 28 weeks or more, for example) are also sometimes referred to as stillbirths. (cdc.gov)
  • 2001

  • Clinic
  • MFM faculty have outpatient clinical practices at the University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC-Maternal and Infant Care Clinic) where the most complex maternal and/or fetal medical conditions are referred for care. (washington.edu)
  • Your visit to the fetal clinic will usually involve a visit to a Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist, along with the fetal radiologist for any necessary imaging. (ohsu.edu)
  • neonatal
  • OHSU has the only fetal therapy program in the state and region, offering a broad team of perinatology, pediatric and neonatal specialists with the most advanced technologies to achieve the best possible outcomes for mothers and their babies. (ohsu.edu)
  • genetic
  • An erythroid enhancer of BCL11A subject to genetic variation determines fetal hemoglobin level. (nih.gov)
  • We found that common genetic variation at BCL11A associated with fetal hemoglobin (HbF) level lies in noncoding sequences decorated by an erythroid enhancer chromatin signature. (nih.gov)
  • authors
  • Because the authors include experienced fetal and paediatric cardiologists, the focus is not only on diagnostic features but also the approach to postnatal care and prognosis. (springer.com)
  • annually
  • Fetal death data is published annually by the National Center for Health Statistics, in reports and as individual-record data files. (cdc.gov)
  • normal
  • However it is quite normal for the fetal pole to not be visible until about 9 weeks. (wikipedia.org)

  • birth
  • Our team meets weekly to discuss your care, patient outcomes, birth results, and -- equally important -- to share recent research which ultimately may result in even more effective fetal interventions. (ucsf.edu)
  • Although the procedure is technically challenging, children treated with open fetal repair have significantly improved outcomes compared to children whose defects are repaired shortly after birth. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Norwood procedure is a procedure to correct fetal aortic stenosis that occurs after birth. (wikipedia.org)
  • The placenta keeps the fetal body temperature several degrees warmer than mom's, as well as many more functions that provide for the baby's well-being until birth. (lifesitenews.com)
  • medicine
  • The faculty in the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine has individual expertise in subspecialty areas in MFM such that the division as a whole has clinical breadth and depth across the entire spectrum of Maternal-fetal medicine. (washington.edu)
  • care
  • All the members of our multidisciplinary Fetal Treatment Center (FTC) team play an integral role in your care. (ucsf.edu)
  • The Fetal Treatment Center is intricately connected with the UCSF Division of Pediatric Surgery at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital which is dedicated to providing expert surgical care for fetuses, infants, children, and adolescents with congenital and acquired conditions. (ucsf.edu)
  • As a result, open fetal repair of spina bifida is now considered standard of care at fetal specialty centers. (wikipedia.org)
  • weeks
  • Most states report fetal deaths of 20 weeks of gestation or more and/or 350 grams birthweight. (cdc.gov)
  • brain
  • Immediate delivery has to be considered, because neurological damage may occur when the fetal brain is deprived of oxygen. (springer.com)
  • earlier
  • So just to continue on the fetal tyranny theme I began earlier in memory of Dr. Barnett Slepian: Now that the wonderfully artery-expanding effects of wine been acknowledged, are women once again meant to sacrifice their health and--who knows? (slate.com)
