Anencephaly: A malformation of the nervous system caused by failure of the anterior neuropore to close. Infants are born with intact spinal cords, cerebellums, and brainstems, but lack formation of neural structures above this level. The skull is only partially formed but the eyes are usually normal. This condition may be associated with folate deficiency. Affected infants are only capable of primitive (brain stem) reflexes and usually do not survive for more than two weeks. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p247)Spina Bifida Occulta: A common congenital midline defect of fusion of the vertebral arch without protrusion of the spinal cord or meninges. The lesion is also covered by skin. L5 and S1 are the most common vertebrae involved. The condition may be associated with an overlying area of hyperpigmented skin, a dermal sinus, or an abnormal patch of hair. The majority of individuals with this malformation are asymptomatic although there is an increased incidence of tethered cord syndrome and lumbar SPONDYLOSIS. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, p34)Spinal Dysraphism: Congenital defects of closure of one or more vertebral arches, which may be associated with malformations of the spinal cord, nerve roots, congenital fibrous bands, lipomas, and congenital cysts. These malformations range from mild (e.g., SPINA BIFIDA OCCULTA) to severe, including rachischisis where there is complete failure of neural tube and spinal cord fusion, resulting in exposure of the spinal cord at the surface. Spinal dysraphism includes all forms of spina bifida. The open form is called SPINA BIFIDA CYSTICA and the closed form is SPINA BIFIDA OCCULTA. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, p34)Neural Tube Defects: Congenital malformations of the central nervous system and adjacent structures related to defective neural tube closure during the first trimester of pregnancy generally occurring between days 18-29 of gestation. Ectodermal and mesodermal malformations (mainly involving the skull and vertebrae) may occur as a result of defects of neural tube closure. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, pp31-41)Encephalocele: Brain tissue herniation through a congenital or acquired defect in the skull. The majority of congenital encephaloceles occur in the occipital or frontal regions. Clinical features include a protuberant mass that may be pulsatile. The quantity and location of protruding neural tissue determines the type and degree of neurologic deficit. Visual defects, psychomotor developmental delay, and persistent motor deficits frequently occur.Congenital Abnormalities: Malformations of organs or body parts during development in utero.Pregnancy, Twin: The condition of carrying TWINS simultaneously.Pregnancy: The status during which female mammals carry their developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero before birth, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.Fetal Death: Death of the developing young in utero. BIRTH of a dead FETUS is STILLBIRTH.Folic Acid: A member of the vitamin B family that stimulates the hematopoietic system. It is present in the liver and kidney and is found in mushrooms, spinach, yeast, green leaves, and grasses (POACEAE). Folic acid is used in the treatment and prevention of folate deficiencies and megaloblastic anemia.Diseases in Twins: Disorders affecting TWINS, one or both, at any age.Amniotic Band Syndrome: A disorder present in the newborn infant in which constriction rings or bands, causing soft tissue depressions, encircle digits, extremities, or limbs and sometimes the neck, thorax, or abdomen. They may be associated with intrauterine amputations.Infant, Newborn: An infant during the first month after birth.Fetal Diseases: Pathophysiological conditions of the FETUS in the UTERUS. Some fetal diseases may be treated with FETAL THERAPIES.Amniotic Fluid: A clear, yellowish liquid that envelopes the FETUS inside the sac of AMNION. In the first trimester, it is likely a transudate of maternal or fetal plasma. In the second trimester, amniotic fluid derives primarily from fetal lung and kidney. Cells or substances in this fluid can be removed for prenatal diagnostic tests (AMNIOCENTESIS).Prenatal Care: Care provided the pregnant woman in order to prevent complications, and decrease the incidence of maternal and prenatal mortality.Preconception Care: An organized and comprehensive program of health care that identifies and reduces a woman's reproductive risks before conception through risk assessment, health promotion, and interventions. Preconception care programs may be designed to include the male partner in providing counseling and educational information in preparation for fatherhood, such as genetic counseling and testing, financial and family planning, etc. This concept is different from PRENATAL CARE, which occurs during pregnancy.Prenatal Diagnosis: Determination of the nature of a pathological condition or disease in the postimplantation EMBRYO; FETUS; or pregnant female before birth.Food, Fortified: Any food that has been supplemented with essential nutrients either in quantities that are greater than those present normally, or which are not present in the food normally. Fortified food includes also food to which various nutrients have been added to compensate for those removed by refinement or processing. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

The 'Mickey Mouse' sign and the diagnosis of anencephaly in early pregnancy. (1/149)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the sonographic screening for anencephaly in the first trimester in a low-risk obstetric population. METHODS: Since 1994, 5388 women attended our clinic for a first-trimester scan (11-14 weeks of gestation) and screening for structural and chromosomal abnormalities. The patients underwent transabdominal scanning, and transvaginal scanning if necessary. RESULTS: The ultrasonographic appearances of anencephaly in the first trimester are different from the familiar second-trimester signs. The cerebral hemispheres are present and exposed to the surrounding amniotic fluid. The ultrasound appearances in the coronal section of the head are best described as 'Mickey Mouse face'. There were six cases of anencephaly (incidence 1.1:1000). All cases were diagnosed in the first trimester and five demonstrated this sign. There were no false-positive diagnoses. The crown-rump length was significantly reduced in all affected fetuses. CONCLUSION: First-trimester ultrasonographic diagnosis of anencephaly is accurate, but sonographers should be familiar with the ultrasound appearances that are different from those in the second trimester.  (+info)

Neural tube defects along the Texas-Mexico border, 1993-1995. (2/149)

In response to a 1991 anencephaly cluster in Cameron County, Texas, a surveillance and neural tube defect (NTD) recurrence prevention project for NTDs was implemented in the 14 Texas-Mexico border counties. For 1993-1995, NTD-affected pregnancies were identified at all gestational ages through active surveillance of multiple case-ascertainment sources. There were 87 cases of anencephaly, 96 cases of spina bifida, and 14 cases of encephalocele for respective rates of 6.4, 7.1, and 1.1 per 10,000 live births. Of the 197 NTD case-women, 93% were Hispanic. The overall, Hispanic, and Anglo NTD rates were, respectively, 14.6, 14.9, and 10.6 per 10,000 live births. The NTD rate for El Paso County (9.8 per 10,000), the most northwestern Texas county, was significantly lower (p = 0.001) than the aggregate rate for the rest of the Texas border (17.1 per 10,000). The overall Texas border rate was significantly higher (p < 0.001) than a recently estimated rate of 9.3 for California and minimally higher than a recently adjusted rate of 11.3 for the Metropolitan Atlanta Congenital Defects Program counties (p = 0.052), both of which now reflect all gestational ages. Of the 197 Texas border cases, 85% (168 cases) reached a gestational age of > or =20 weeks. Excluding cases of <20 weeks' gestation in the rate had a more marked effect on reducing the anencephaly rate (4.9 per 10,000) than the spina bifida rate (6.7 per 10,000). A country of birth was known for 153 (83%) of the 184 Hispanic case-women: 63% were born in Mexico; 24%, in Texas; and 11%, elsewhere in the United States. Rates for Mexico-born Hispanic women (15.1 per 10,000) were significantly higher than rates for United States-born Hispanic women (9.5 per 10,000) (p = 0.006).  (+info)

East Ireland 1980-1994: epidemiology of neural tube defects. (3/149)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to describe the epidemiology of neural tube defects (NTD) in the eastern region of Ireland using the EUROCAT register of congenital malformations. DESIGN, SETTING AND PATIENTS: EUROCAT registries monitor the prevalence of congenital anomalies in defined populations using multiple sources for case ascertainment. All cases of NTD on the Dublin EUROCAT register born between 1980 and 1994 were extracted and analysed. The crude birth prevalence rate for all NTD, spina bifida, anencephaly and encephalocoele were calculated for each year. Parameters measured were: sex ratio, stillbirth rate, proportion of low birth-weight babies (< 2500 g) and the proportion who were premature (< 37 weeks gestation). MAIN RESULTS: Of 821 NTD cases, 419 (51.0%) had spina bifida, 322 (39.2%) had anencephaly, 69 (8.4%) had encephalocoele and 11 (1.3%) were iniencephalic. The crude birth prevalence of NTD decreased fourfold from 46.9/10,000 births in 1980 to 11.6/10,000 in 1994. The downward trend ceased during the early 1990's. Younger mothers had significantly higher rates of NTD affected births. Twenty two per cent of NTD cases had additional non-central nervous system anomalies. In 40 cases, there was a previous family history of NTD in siblings. Seasonal effects in birth prevalence were observed. Birth notification was the most frequent mechanism of ascertainment. CONCLUSION: There was a marked fall in the birth prevalence of NTD during the 15 year period. This change was real and not accounted for by pre-natal screening and diagnostic practises with termination of pregnancy, which is not legally permissible in Ireland. Dietary factors may have had an influence. Rates of NTD in this region are still higher than many other parts of Europe. Primary prevention strategies through increased folic acid intake are necessary to further reduce NTD affected births.  (+info)

Vasculature of the optic nerve in anencephaly. (4/149)

The optic nerves and globes obtained from 6 anencephalics were studied histologically and compared to normal specimens obtained from 4 stillborn infants as well as 1 case of septo-optic dysplasia. Special emphasis was placed on examination of the optic nerve, and it was found that an average of 48 vessels per high-power field were seen posterior to the lamina cribrosa in anencephalics. In contrast, control globes had an average of 12 vessels per high-power field. This suggested that an increase in the vasculature of the hypoplastic optic nerve is a characteristic feature of anencephalics.  (+info)

Congenital vertebral anomalies: aetiology and relationship to spina bifida cystica. (5/149)

A family survey of 337 patients with congenital vertebral anomalies has been carried out from the Scoliosis Clinics of Edinburgh and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, London. From genetic and epidemiological evidence it is clear that multiple vertebral anomalies (without apparent spina bifida) are aetiologically related to anencephaly and spina bifida cystics, carrying a 5-10% risk to subsequent sibs for any one of these defects. The implications for prenatal diagnosis are discussed. Solitary hemivertebrae and localized anterior defects of the vertebral bodies causing kyphoscoliosis are sporadic (non-familial) in nature, carrying no risk to subsequent sibs.  (+info)

Potato avoidance during pregnancy in women with a previous infant with either anencephaly and/or spina bifida. (6/149)

This investigation is a direct attempt to test Renwick's (1972) hypothesis that 95% of anencephaly and spina bifida (ASB) is preventable by the avoidance of potatoes during pregnancy. Although the numbers involved in the study are small, the investigation fails to support the concept that short-term avoidance of potatoes before conception and throughout pregnancy in women who have had a previous ASB infant reduces the recurrence risk. In the potato-free group, of 23 pregnancies which went to term two infants had ASB (8-7%); whereas in the non-potato-free group, of 56 which went to term two infants had ASB (3-6%). The recurrence risk in both groups was about 5%. The incidence of ASB in the groups shows no significant difference (P = 0-58) and in the potato-free group was not reduced by 95% as postulated by Renwick.  (+info)

An investigation of space and space-time clustering in a large sample of infants with neural tube defects born in Cardiff. (7/149)

Altogether 406 infants with neural tube defects born in Cardiff between 1956-71 were investigated for evidence of space-time clustering and 100 similarly affected infants, together with matched controls born in Cardiff between 1964-66 were investigated for evidence of spatial clustering. No evidence of excessive prevalence in either dimension was observed.  (+info)

Maternal exposure to nitrate from drinking water and diet and risk for neural tube defects. (8/149)

In this population-based case-control study conducted in California between June 1989 and May 1991, the authors investigated the association between maternal periconceptional exposure to nitrate from drinking water and diet and risk for neural tube defects. The mothers of 538 cases and 539 nonmalformed controls were interviewed regarding residential history, consumption of tap water at home, and dietary intake during the periconceptional period. Dietary nitrate exposure was not associated with increased risk for neural tube defects. Exposure to nitrate in drinking water at concentrations above the 45 mg/liter maximum contaminant level was associated with increased risk for anencephaly (odds ratio (OR) = 4.0, 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.0, 15.4), but not for spina bifida. Increased risks for anencephaly were observed at nitrate levels below the maximum contaminant level among groundwater drinkers only (OR = 2.1, 95% CI: 1.1,4.1 for 5-15 mg/liter; OR = 2.3, 95% CI: 1.1, 4.5 for 16-35 mg/liter; and OR = 6.9, 95% CI: 1.9, 24.9 for 36-67 mg/liter compared with <5 mg/liter). Adjustment for identified risk factors for anencephaly did not substantially alter these associations, nor did control for maternal dietary nitrate, total vitamin C intake, and quantity of tap water consumed. The lack of an observed elevation in risk for anencephaly in association with exposure to mixed water containing nitrate at levels comparable with the concentration in groundwater may indicate that something other than nitrate accounts for these findings.  (+info)

NINDS : 51 Anencephaly is a defect in the closure of the neural tube during fetal development. The neural tube is a narrow channel that folds and closes between the 3rd and 4th weeks of pregnancy to form the brain and spinal cord of the embryo. Anencephaly occurs when the "cephalic" or head end of the neural tube fails to close, resulting in the absence of a major portion of the brain, skull, and scalp. Infants with this disorder are born without a forebrain (the front part of the brain) and a cerebrum (the thinking and coordinating part of the brain). The remaining brain tissue is often exposed--not covered by bone or skin. A baby born with anencephaly is usually blind, deaf, unconscious, and unable to feel pain. Although some individuals with anencephaly may be born with a rudimentary brain stem, the lack of a functioning cerebrum permanently rules out the possibility of ever gaining consciousness. Reflex actions such as breathing and responses to sound or touch may occur. The cause of ...

Anencephaly is a type of neural tube defect that occurs in about 1 of 10,000 pregnancies in the U.S. each year. The actual number is unknown because many of these births result in miscarriages.. During pregnancy, the human brain and spine begin as a flat plate of cells, which rolls into a tube, called the neural tube. If all or part of the neural tube fails to close, leaving an opening, this is known as an open neural tube defect, or ONTD. This opening may be left exposed or covered with bone or skin.. Anencephaly and spina bifida are the most common ONTDs, while encephaloceles (where there is a protrusion of the brain or its coverings through the skull) are much rarer. Anencephaly occurs when the neural tube fails to close at the base of the skull, while spina bifida occurs when the neural tube fails to close somewhere along the spine.. ONTDs happen to couples without a prior family history of these defects in the vast majority of cases. ONTDs result from a combination of genes inherited from ...

National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities The material in this report originated in the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, José F. Cordero, M.D., Director, and the Division of Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, Joseph Mulinare, M.D., M.S.P.H., Acting Director. In September 1992, the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS) recommended that all women capable of becoming pregnant should consume 400 µg of folic acid/day on an ongoing basis to reduce their risk for having a pregnancy affected by spina bifida and anencephaly (i.e., neural tube defects [NTDs]) (1). The recommendation was preceded a year earlier by a CDC recommendation for women at high risk (i.e., those women who have had an earlier pregnancy affected by an NTD). The 1991 CDC recommendation stated that women at high risk should plan subsequent pregnancies and consume 4,000 µg/day of folic acid from the time they begin trying to become pregnant through the first trimester of ...

Anencephaly is a type of neural tube defect (NTD). If an NTD occurred in a previous pregnancy, there is up to a 4% chance of each future pregnancy also being affected with an NTD.[1] However, taking the vitamin folic acid has been proven to reduce the chance of an NTD in future pregnancies.[1] In one large research study, women who had a previous pregnancy affected by an NTD and who took folic acid prior to and during later pregnancies had an approximately 1% chance of having another pregnancy affected with an NTD.[2] ...

I would die for a painting of my birth and a painting of my dear Lucy. I miss her so much. She means everything to me. I also really want to spread awareness, in the fact that YOU can bring your baby into the world with so much love and peace. And even if your baby has a condition like anencephaly, YOU can carry to term and YOU can have those few sweet, amazing, breathtaking minutes, hours or days with your baby. We had 33 hours with our sweet Lucy and I feel like even if she had passed in my womb, I feel like I would have loved her the same and been happy to spend some time with her after delivery. She was so strong and amazing. I cant stop talking about how beautiful she is. I am so grateful for the time we had with our precious Lucy and I would not trade those hours with her for anything in the world. We even had a chance to bring her home with us and she spent a full night sleeping in my arms. She smiled the loveliest smile that I have ever seen. She was wise beyond her life. Very wise and ...

Hi there. Our baby Jack was diagnosed with anencephaly at 16wks and our world fell apart. He died during delivery a couple months later. That was 25 feb 2007 and in many ways it feels like a couple of months ago. We already had 3 beautiful, healthy boys and Im ashamed to say I presumed all would be well with Jack too. I turned away from my faith and beliefs as I felt I was being punished. I didnt want to accept that it wasnt meant to be. I wanted to scream at everyone i passed that my baby was going to die. However, time does heal. I now understand that Jack wasnt taken from me...he was given to me; if only for a desperately short time. And our lives are richer for knowing him. I would advise anyone facing this mountain to climb to enjoy every moment. I know it sounds crazy but your journey now will carry you through the difficult times in your future. Celebrate the life within you, talk and sing to your baby (he/she can hear you). Feel the flutterings and movements and if you still have ...
Anencephaly is characterized by the absence of scalp, calvarium, and normal brain, which is replaced by an angiomatous mass. The typical appearance of the face (batracian phenotype) is due to absent frontal bones and shallow orbits causing protrusion of the eyeballs.". Potters Pathology of the Fetus and ...
I am a wife and mother of 2 beautiful little girls and one precious angel on the way. I have been with my hubby for 11 years and married to him for 7 yrs this August. I am currently 24 weeks pregnant with a precious baby girl who was recently diagnosed with Anencephaly. It was hard at first to swallow, but I have come to terms that this is Gods will and he believes that I am strong enough to grow and nurture and love his new little angel before he takes her to heaven to be with him. I am blessed to have this little girl inside of me as well as having such a loving and supportive husband and 2 beautiful little girls who are 6 and 3. Their names are Makailyn Elyse (6) and Makenzie Jean (3). If you would like to know anything else about me do not hesitate to ask me ...

The new count follows a report last summer that found more than two dozen cases of babies born with anencephaly and other neural tube defects in the region between 2010 and 2013.. Researchers found no geographic, seasonal or other type of pattern to the cases, Stahre said.. Medical records indicate low rates of folic acid vitamin supplementation in the region, which has been linked to anencephaly. Other studies have shown ties between the defect and exposure to molds and pesticides. Critics have said state and federal officials need to do detailed interviews and a thorough investigation of the central Washington cluster.. Many local residents are convinced that leaking tanks of nuclear waste from the regions nearby Hanford nuclear plant must be to blame, but Dr. Edith Cheng, a University Washington Medicine expert on birth defects, said there has not been a good evaluation of the plants impact on anencephaly or other problems.. Experts emphasize the need for all women of childbearing age to ...
Anencephaly is a neural tube defect (a disorder involving incomplete development of the brain, spinal cord, and/or their protective coverings). The neural tube is a narrow sheath that folds and closes between the 3rd and 4th weeks of pregnancy to form the brain and spinal cord of the embryo. Anencephaly occurs when the "cephalic" or head end of the neural tube fails to close, resulting in the absence of a major portion of the brain, skull, and scalp. Infants with this disorder are born without both a forebrain (the front part of the brain) and a cerebrum (the thinking and coordinating area of the brain). The remaining brain tissue is often exposed--not covered by bone or skin. The infant is usually blind, deaf, unconscious, and unable to feel pain. Although some individuals with anencephaly may be born with a rudimentary brain stem, the lack of a functioning cerebrum permanently rules out the possibility of ever gaining consciousness. Reflex actions such as respiration (breathing) and responses ...

Authors: Borman, Barry , Cryer, Colin Article Type: Research Article Abstract: A study was conducted in a cohort of New Zealand births on the prevalence of anencephalus and spina bifida in relation to various chemical elements in the drinking water. Cases were ascertained from national infant mortality and late fetal death records, and public hospital records and consisted of still and live births (of 28 or more weeks gestation) during 1978-1982 with anencephalus or spina bifida diagnosed either at birth or during the first year of life. The 460 cases were matched with their official birth registration records and a sample of 5000 control births was randomly selected from all non-NTD …still- and livebirths. Drinking water data were obtained from a national surveillance program. Iron was the only water element to be included in the stepwise multiple logistic regression model of anencephalus prevalence, and magnesium, sulphate, and nitrate nitrogen were retained in the spina bifida model. This ...
The Duke Center for Human Genetics is currently conducting a genetic study called "The Hereditary Basis of Neural Tube Defects" to determine the causes of anencephaly and other NTDs. By studying families with anencephaly and other NTDs, we hope to identify the genes that contribute to the development of the neural tube. We hope this research will eventually lead to more accurate genetic counseling and risk assessment, improved treatments, better prevention methods, and possibly, a cure ...
We found out that we were pregnant with our first child on August 31, 2009. We were nervous, but very excited. We spent the next few months planning for our future. We knew that our lives would be changed forever when our baby was born. We just never thought it would be changed in this way. On November 25th, we went for our first ultrasound. We were so excited to find out if we were having a boy or a girl (we both felt like it was a girl). Instead of finding out the sex, we found out that our baby had anencephaly. Anencephaly is a fatal neural tube defect in which the part of the tube that forms into the skull and portion of the brain doesnt close. It was the worst day of our lives. We chose to carry our baby to term. We found out at another ultrasound the next week that we were having a girl. We named her Ella Christine. Ella means "bright light", and I cant think of a more perfect name. God blessed us with 20 hours with her after she was born, and she changed our lives forever. I never ...

Description: A malformation of the nervous system caused by failure of the anterior neuropore to close. Infants are born with intact spinal cords, cerebellums, and brainstems, but lack formation of neural structures above this level. The skull is only partially formed but the eyes are usually normal. This condition may be associated with folate deficiency. Affected infants are only capable of primitive (brain stem) reflexes and usually do not survive for more than two weeks. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p247 ...

Nothing prepares them to know how to deal with the imminent death of a much-loved and wanted child, but nothing prepares their family and friends either to know how to be around parents who suddenly begin to grieve for a baby that has not yet even been born. They want so much to help, but they themselves are now in grief for a grandchild, niece or nephew, or a dear friends child. They are afraid that they will say or do the wrong thing. They want to give support, but often dont know to begin or what might be the best way to be supportive without being burdensome or overbearing ...
I have attempted to address the points above to a general audience but allow me one explicitly Christian argument. As a Christian I believe that human beings are made for eternity. This earthly existence is just the Shadowlands. So when we think of loved ones, who have died with dementia, we do not think of them as they were but as they will be. Because of Christs death and resurrection we look forward to the resurrection of the body into a world where there is no dying, mourning, death or pain. In this new world there will be no anencephaly. The Christian ethic is to treat all people as we would treat Christ and to treat others as Christ would have done. The bottom line is that we should treat babies with anencephaly as if they were Jesus himself, and treat them in the way he would have done ...

Currently, screening for chromosomal or developmental abnormalities includes first-trimester risk assessment at 11 to 14 weeks (this may include ultrasound nuchal cord thickness assessment) and maternal blood test screening at 15 to 20 weeks.. With the AFP, quad, and penta screening tests, an unusually high or low level of specific indicators in a womans blood indicates a higher probability of certain fetal defects. Where alpha fetoprotein (AFP) is high, there is a greater risk that the fetus has a neural tube defect such as anencephaly (lack of a skull) or spina bifida (hole in the spinal cord). Where AFP is low, the chances are greater that the fetus has Down Syndrome (Trisomy 21, an extra copy of the 21st chromosome). When these measurements are combined with those for 2-4 other proteins (triple, quad, or penta test), the ability to statistically predict Down Syndrome is even better. The test may be useful in detecting other chromosomal abnormalities as well.. Before this test is performed, ...

All women of childbearing age with diabetes should be counseled about the importance of tight glycemic control prior to conception. Observational studies show an increased risk of diabetic embryopathy, especially anencephaly, microcephaly, congenital heart disease, and caudal regression directly proportional to elevations in A1C during the first 10 weeks of pregnancy. Although observational studies are confounded by the association between elevated periconceptional A1C and other poor self-care behaviors, the quantity and consistency of data are convincing and support the recommendation to optimize glycemic control prior to conception, with A1C ,6.5% (48 mmol/mol) associated with the lowest risk of congenital anomalies (3,4).. There are opportunities to educate all women and adolescents of reproductive age with diabetes about the risks of unplanned pregnancies and the opportunities for improved maternal and fetal outcomes with pregnancy planning (5). Effective preconception counseling could avert ...
We were delighted to share the inspirational story of Jenna and Dan Haley last month.. The Philadelphia couple decided to complete a bucket list of special family moments with their unborn son, having been told he was not expected to live for more than a few hours or days once born.. The outpouring of love and support from our readers and followers across the world was overwhelming. No matter their opinion of the couples decision to keep their baby, knowing he had anencephaly - a serious birth defect, everyone hoped and prayed for a medical miracle.. According to the Facebook page, Prayers for Shane, the baby boy was born at 2.55am on Thursday this week.. "Shane Michael Haley … born at 2:25am … happy birthday to our little man!" the page read.. Sadly only a few short hours later the delighted parents were forced to say goodbye to their tiny son, the heartbreaking result of so many months spent together as a family.. In that time the parents decided to cross off one more item on the bucket ...

We loved every second of being parents and knew we wanted more children so began to try when Anna was about 18 months old. In August of 2007 I had a miscarriage. After that we decided to try again and I became pregnant with our daughter, Emma, in November of 2007. It was a normal pregnancy for the most part, except I had a bad feeling the whole time. In my heart I knew something wasnt right. At our 20 week scan my fears were confirmed. The doctor told us she had Anencephaly. We were devastated. My sister in law had her baby with this defect at 18 weeks in 2005 so we knew exactly what it was.

At St. Josephs "early induction" is used only when the diagnosed fetal disabilities are deemed so severe that the child will likely die within a few months, days or even hours of being born. The St. Josephs policy on the matter states: "An early induction may be permitted after viability for a proportionate reason which can include grave physical, psychological or psychiatric considerations." Psychological justification for inducing labor in such cases is to spare the mother the pain of carrying to term a child that is likely to die shortly after birth anyway. Pro-life groups and church teaching on the issue, however, consider abortions of such children through early induction to be the same as regular abortion (the unjust killing of an unborn child), but with an added discrimination against those with a handicap. One of the most extreme cases of lethal fetal anomaly is anencephaly - a congenital anomaly characterized by failure of development of the cerebral hemispheres and overlying skull ...

Study question. What are the long term trends in the total (live births, fetal deaths, and terminations of pregnancy for fetal anomaly) and live birth prevalence of neural tube defects (NTD) in Europe, where many countries have issued recommendations for folic acid supplementation but a policy for mandatory folic acid fortification of food does not exist? Methods. This was a population based, observational study using data on 11 353 cases of NTD not associated with chromosomal anomalies, including 4162 cases of anencephaly and 5776 cases of spina bifida from 28 EUROCAT (European Surveillance of Congenital Anomalies) registries covering approximately 12.5 million births in 19 countries between 1991 and 2011. The main outcome measures were total and live birth prevalence of NTD, as well as anencephaly and spina bifida, with time trends analysed using random effects Poisson regression models to account for heterogeneities across registries and splines to model non-linear time trends. Summary answer ...

Fetal movement refers to motion of a fetus caused by its own muscle activity. Locomotor activity begins during the late embryological stage, and changes in nature throughout development. Muscles begin to move as soon as they are innervated. These first movements are not reflexive, but arise from self-generated nerve impulses originating in the spinal cord. As the nervous system matures, muscles can move in response to stimuli. Generally speaking, fetal motility can be classified as either elicited or spontaneous, and spontaneous movements may be triggered by either the spine or the brain. Whether a movement is supraspinally determined can be inferred by comparison to movements of an anencephalic fetus. Although the heart begins to beat on the 23rd day after conception, this article primarily deals with voluntary and reflex movements. Ages are given as age from fertilization rather than as gestational age. Some sources contend that there is no voluntary movement until after birth. Other sources ...
There are two kinds of birth defects that leave a person without any cortex at all: hydranencephaly and anencephaly. Patients with hydranencephaly completely lack a cerebral cortex and white matter. The usual cause is a massive stroke during prenatal life. They are left only with a diencephalon (thalamus) and a brainstem and cerebellum. Patients with anencephaly also completely lack a cerebral cortex and white matter. The usual cause is a genetic abnormality that precludes normal brain formation. They too are left only with a diencephalon (thalamus) and a brainstem and cerebellum. Ive taken care of scores of patients with these handicaps over 30 years. Their survival after birth is limited. Many die after several months, some live into later childhood (my longest survivor is 10 years ...
Neural tube defects (NTDs) are a group of birth defects in which an opening in the spinal cord or brain remains from early in human development. In the 3rd week of pregnancy called gastrulation, specialized cells on the dorsal side of the embryo begin to change shape and form the neural tube. When the neural tube does not close completely, an NTD develops. Specific types include: spina bifida which affects the spine, anencephaly which results in little to no brain, encephalocele which affects the skull, and iniencephaly which results in severe neck problems. NTDs are one of the most common birth defects, affecting over 300,000 births each year worldwide. For example, spina bifida affects approximately 1,500 births annually in the USA, or about 3.5 in every 10,000 (0.035% of US births), which has decreased from around 5 per 10,000 (0.05% of US births) since folate fortification of grain products was started. The number of deaths in the US each year due to neural tube defects also declined from ...

Neural tube defects (NTDs) are among the most common congenital anomalies in the United States, second only in frequency to congenital heart defects.. Efforts to reduce the prevalence of these devastating abnormalities demonstrates the effectiveness of the translation of basic science and population research to health care practices, and from practice to public policy.. NTDs are congenital abnormalities that result from the failure of the normal development of brain and spinal cord. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that, in 2005, the rates for spina bifida and anencephaly, the two most common forms of NTDs, were 18 and 11 cases per 100,000 live births, respectively.1 An estimated 3000 children are born each year in the United States with an NTD.. Normally, the tissue that is to become the central nervous system (the brain and the spinal cord) forms as a flat plate of cells that later folds over on itself to form a closed tube. This normally occurs within four weeks ...
Neural tube defects. A failure in closure of the neural tube during the first trimester of fetal development. It is one of the most common types of developmental anomalies occurring in 1 of every 1000 births. Myelomeningoceles and anencephaly are common examples.. ...
Im sorry that it has been awhile since my last post, but my research has demanded more attention lately. Ive seen something interesting in my project, so Ive been working on understanding what exactly happened. I am trying to answer the question of how.. This question of how is important, but it often goes unanswered in science and biomedicine.. The prevention of neural tube defects is an example of the question of how going unanswered. Neural tube defects, or NTDs, are caused when the developmental processes of neural tube closure go awry. The neural tube becomes the brain and spinal cord, so a fully functional nervous system depends on the tube forming properly. Neural tube closure is a complex process, and is very prone to error. The prevalence of neural tube defects in the United States is estimated as 1 in every 1000 live births. This is not a trivial number.. NTDs include anencephaly, which is when the head region fails to close. This defect is invariable lethal, since the brain fails ...
To assess the predictive ability of established risk factors for NTDs, we built predictive models using data from the National Birth Defects Prevention Study, which is a large, population-based study of nonsyndromic birth defects. Cases with spina bifida or anencephaly, or both (n = 1239), and controls (n = 8494) were randomly divided into separate training (75% of cases and controls) and validation (remaining 25%) samples. Multivariable logistic regression models were constructed with the training samples. The predictive ability of these models was evaluated in the validation samples by assessing the area under the receiver operator characteristic curves. An ordinal predictive risk index was also constructed and evaluated. In addition, the ability of classification and regression tree (CART) analysis to identify subgroups of women at increased risk for NTDs in offspring was evaluated ...
Acid reflux: A condition in which acid flows back up from the stomach into the upper intestines and the esophagus. Acupressure: Manual pressure to parts of the body to relieve stress and pain. Acupuncture: Insertion of needles into particular parts of the body to relieve stress and pain. Aerobic exercise: Workouts like running or swimming that condition the heart and lungs by increasing the efficiency of the bodys oxygen use. Alpha-fetoprotein: A protein manufactured by the fetal yolk sac, and later by the fetus gastro-intestinal tract and liver. A test for levels of AFP in the mothers blood can help detect Downs syndrome, spina bifida, and other abnormalities. Amniocentesis: A prenatal test to detect birth defects that is performed after the 15th week of pregnancy. It involves inserting a needle through the abdomen to retrieve fluid that contains placental cells. Amniotic fluid: The liquid within the uterus in which the fetus lives until birth. Anencephaly: A neural tube defect involving ...
Forty-seven studies were identified; 32 exclusions left 14 useable studies.

NTDs are serious birth defects such as spina bifida, encephalocoele and anencephaly. In these conditions, the tissues that form the brain and spinal cord do not develop properly. In the Philippines, studies on folic acid and folates and its role in the development of NTDs are lacking. Although it has been well documented in the United States (US).. The US studies found that people with poor eating habits, dieters, cigarette smokers, alcohol and drug users, and birth control pill users have increased risk to folic acid or folate deficiency. If one falls into any of these categories, it is even more important that taking a multivitamin pill with folic acid everyday is recommended.. Folic acid and folates are necessary for proper cell growth and development of embryo. They take part in the synthesis of DNA, necessary to make fetal tissues and organs early in pregnancy. They are also required in the formation of red blood cells. Folate deficiency produces immature red blood cells, which are ...
Marla Ahlgrimm: While a healthy diet includes folic acid for both sexes, its especially important for women who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. Folic acid protects a developing fetus against neural tube birth defects and miscarriage. Neural tube birth defects are those limited to the brain, spinal cord, and spine. The most common are spina bifida and anencephaly, the latter of which is almost always fatal shortly after birth. As well, inadequate folate can lead to folate-deficiency anemia, which is most common in women between the ages of 18 and 35 ...
During pregnancy you need extra nutrients, such as iron and folic acid. Whether you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant, take a daily multivitamin with at least 400 micrograms of folic acid , which is a type of B vitamin, to prevent birth defects. Folic acid is very important because it can help prevent major birth defects of the babys brain and spine ( anencephaly and spina bifida ) by 50% to 70 %.. *See the Parenthood Plus nutrition site .. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and eat whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Stay away from junk food. Talk to your doctor about what you should eat and how much weight you should gain durring your pregnancy. Most doctors recommend gaining around 25 to 35 pounds, depending on how much you weighed before pregnancy.. Read more about nutrition during pregnancy: ...
Last year, the UN Human Rights Committee, at the request of a pro-abortion group, issued a declaration stating the country of Peru had "violated the rights" of a young mother by not allowing her to abort her unborn child, who was diagnosed with anencephaly, a congenital malformation that usually leads to early death for the baby but poses no risk for the mother ...
One unique feature of the vertebrate brain is that it is tubular. The lumen of the tube is filled with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and forms the brain ventricular system, a circulatory system within the brain. Ventricular abnormalities lead to devastating brain disorders such as anencephaly and hydrocephalus. The embryonic development and function of this system are poorly understood. We analyze embryonic brain ventricle development in the zebrafish, an excellent system, as imaging the brain at single cell resolution in living embryos is feasible, and as many brain ventricle mutants have been identified. Brain ventricles form over a six-hour period, during mid-somitogenesis, and require normal junctions and ion pump activity. Thus, mutants in nagie oko, which encodes a MAGUK family protein, with no clear midline and disrupted epithelial junctional protein expression fail to inflate their ventricles. In the snakehead mutant brain, the ventricles also do not inflate due to a mutation in the NaK ...

Pregnant women and women who are trying are advised to increase Vitamin B9 levels in the body through diet and supplements to reduce the risk of neural tube birth defects and miscarriage. Neural tube defects affect the developing brain, spine, or spinal cord during the first month of pregnancy. Two of the most common defects are spina bifida and anencephaly. Spina bifida is caused when the spinal column isnt closed completely, leading to nerve damage or lower extremity paralysis. Anencephaly is caused when the majority of the brain and skull are not formed, leading to death in the womb or at birth. Folic Acid deficiency is commonly associated with genetic abnormalities, leading to miscarriage. Taking Folic Acid supplements can reduce the risk of neural tube defects between 72 and 100%.. ...
The rates of anencephalus in 36 Canadian cities and the province of New Brunswick from 1950 through 1969 were reviewed with regard to the horizontal geomagnetic flux, city growth, and the magnesium (7439954) concentration of tap water. High geomagnetic flux was considered as inversely related to levels of cosmic radiation. Data were screened by a bipartite stratification of the variables for assoc
Neural tube defects are abnormalities that can occur in the brain (anencephaly, encephalocele), spine (spina bifida, myelomeningocele, myelodysplasia), both brain and spine (craniorachischisis) or spinal column of a developing embryo that are present at birth. They arise when the neural tube, the embryonic precursor of the brain and spinal cord, fails to close during neurulation. Many cases of neural tube defects occur worldwide each year in more than 300,000 newborn babies and are a significant cause of infant death and lifelong disability. Most neural tube defects are preventable. The prevalence of these abnormalities has decreased in the past 20 to 30 years due to periconceptional folate supplementation, food fortification and decreased exposure to environmental factors. Women who are planning to conceive should be informed about the importance of folic acid in fetal development and encouraged to take 400 μg/day of folic acid supplements. Numerous research studies have shown that taking this ...
During pregnancy, the brain and spine begin as a flat plate of cells. This plate rolls into a tube, called the neural tube. The tube is completely formed 28 to 32 days after conception. If all or part of the neural tube fails to close, this leaves an opening. The opening is called an open neural tube defect. The opening in the tube may be left exposed or covered with bone or skin. The neural tube in a child with spina bifida doesnt close at some point along the spine. Spina bifida is one of the most common types of open neural tube defects. Another type is anencephaly. This type happens when the neural tube doesnt close at the base of the skull. A much more rare type is encephalocele. In this defect, part of the brain or its coverings extend through the skull. ...
Neural tube defects are defects which affect the neural tube and is the most common type of CNS malformation. As the picture alongside demonstrates, the neural tube develops as the baby grows within the womb. The inside portion of the neural tube forms the ventricular system, and the outside portion forms the brain and the spinal cord. In normal circumstances, the neural tube closes and seals itself before birth, but it may either fail to close or may reopen after closing because it is not sealed properly.. What are the types of tissues affected by neural tube defects? There are several types of tissues which can be affected by neural tube defects: they include neural tissue, bone, soft tissues and the meninges. The most common neural tube defects involve the spinal cord and the type of side effects are dependent on the level at which the defect presents itself. In general, the higher up the spinal cord, the worse the prognosis.. Because the neural tube develops during pregnancy, is there ...
Neural tube defects (NTD), including anencephaly and spina bifida, are a group of severe congenital abnormalities in which the future brain and/or spinal cord fail to close. In mice, NTD may result from genetic mutations or knockouts, or from exposure to teratogenic agents, several of which are known risk factors in humans. Among the many mouse NTD models that have been identified to date, a number have been tested for possible primary prevention of NTD by exogenous agents, such as folic acid. In genetic NTD models such as Cart1, splotch, Cited2, and crooked tail, and NTD induced by teratogens including valproic acid and fumonisins, the incidence of defects is reduced by maternal folic acid supplementation. These folate-responsive models provide an opportunity to investigate the possible mechanisms underlying prevention of NTD by folic acid in humans. In another group of mouse models, that includes curly tail, axial defects, and the Ephrin-A5 knockout, NTD are not preventable by folic acid, ...
Spina bifida is a neural tube defect. It is the second most common birth defect worldwide, and affects about 1 in every 1000 pregnancies in New Zealand. Spina Bifida is a complex birth defect.. Spina Bifida results from the failure of the embryos neural tube to develop properly. If part of the extends the full length of your babys back. In Spina Bifida, the vertebrae (one or more) at one part of the spine are not completely formed, but are divided or split. Because of this split or division, the spinal cord and its coverings can bulge out from the gap.neural tube does not close, the spinal vertebrae also do not close. The spine is made up of separate bones called vertebrae. These vertebrae lie on top of one another to form the long column which extends the full length of your babys back.. In Spina Bifida, the vertebrae (one or more) at one part of the spine are not completely formed, but are divided or split. Because of this split or division, the spinal cord and its coverings can bulge out ...
Periconceptional folic acid use can often prevent neural tube defects (NTDs). Variants of genes involved in folate metabolism in mothers and children have been associated with occurrence of NTDs. We identified Irish families with individuals affected by neural tube defects. In these families, we observed that neural tube defects and birth defects overall occurred at a higher rate in the maternal lineage compared with the paternal lineage. The goal of this study was to look for evidence for genetic effects that could explain the discrepancy in the occurrence of these birth defects in the maternal vs. paternal lineage. We genotyped blood samples from 322 individuals from NTD-affected Irish families, identified through their membership in spina bifida associations. We looked for differences in distribution in maternal vs. paternal lineages of five genetic polymorphisms: the DHFR 19 bp deletion, MTHFD1 1958G,A, MTHFR 1298A,C, MTHFR 677C,T, and SLC19A1 80A,G. In addition to looking at genotypes ...

Doctor answers on Symptoms, Diagnosis, Treatment, and More: Dr. Greenleaf on treatment for spina bifida occulta: Spina bifida occulta, like open spina bifida, is a congenital malformation involving a problem with closing of the neural tube during development. However, there is not exposed neural tissue in spina bifida occulta. There can be tracts connecting the skin to the spinal cord, or lipomas or bands (tight filum) which can cause neurologic deficit. There can also be bony issues. for topic: Treatment For Spina Bifida Occulta
Joshua Toro, an 18-year-old high school student, enjoys spending time with his friends, but he would often avoid social activities until a recent surgery with Dr. Adam Hittelman of Yale Urology gave him the freedom to say yes.. Joshua was born with spina bifida, which occurs when the bones of the spine do not form properly around the spinal column. Although there are varying degrees of spina bifida and the symptoms associated with it, severe forms of spina bifida can cause paralysis of the legs and issues of bladder including bowel control. Joshua, who has both paralysis as well as neurologic impairment of his bladder and bowel, wanted to enjoy his life to the fullest. "Ive spent my whole life in a wheelchair," said Joshua. "But what stopped me from spending more time with friends was the fear that I would lose control of my bowels while I was out having fun. I was too embarrassed to go hang with my friends fearing that it might happen, so I kept more to myself.". A surgery known as Malone ...
SPINA BIFIDA & MYELOMENINGOCOELE. Spina Bifida is one of the most serious neural tube defects that is also compatible with prolonged life. Its severity varies from the occult type (with no clinical findings) to a completely open spine (rachischisis) with severe neurological disability and death. In Spina Bifida Cystica, the protruding sac can contain meninges (meningocele), Spinal Cord (myelocele), or both (myelomeningocele). Spina Bifida is most common in the lower thoracic, lumbar, or sacral region and usually extends for 3 to 6 vertebral segments. The sac in a myelomeningocele usually consists of meninges with a central neural plaque. If not well covered with skin, the sac can easily rupture, increasing the risk of meningitis.. When the Spinal Cord or lumbosacral nerve roots are involved in the Spina Bifida, as is usual, varying degrees of paralysis occur below the affected level. Since this paralysis occurs in the fetus, orthopedic problems are often present at birth (i.e. clubfoot, ...
