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 choroid plexus carcinoma. Potential benefits of prenatal surgery must be balanced against the risks of prematurity and maternal morbidity. Ciba Found Symp ; Pregnancy complications were more common among women in the prenatal-surgery group Table 2Table 2 Maternal and Fetal or Neonatal Outcomes.


The anatomical level of the lesion was determined by an independent group of radiologists on the basis of the month radiograph. Since uterine dehiscence and rupture in a subsequent pregnancy are recognized risks of prenatal surgery,21 mothers who undergo prenatal surgery must understand that all subsequent pregnancies should be delivered by cesarean before the onset of labor. Early data suggested a dramatic improvement in hindbrain herniation in comparison with historic controls but also showed an increased maternal risk, including preterm labor and uterine dehiscence, and a substantially increased risk of fetal or neonatal death and preterm birth.

One third of women who underwent prenatal surgery had an area of dehiscence or a very thin prenatal uterine surgery scar at the time of delivery. Current selection criteria and perioperative therapy used for fetal myelomeningocele surgery. Maternal morbidity and pregnancy complications that were related to prenatal surgery included oligohydramnios, chorioamniotic separation, placental abruption, and spontaneous membrane rupture. 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.

Study Procedures Women who were interested in the trial contacted the coordinating center, and if eligible, they were referred to one of the three clinical centers for evaluation and randomization after they provided written informed consent.

The difference between the functional level and anatomical level in vertebral segments was mielomenjngocele. The composite score for each infant consisted of mielomenungocele sum of the two ranks. For outcomes up to 30 months, the report is based on the findings in women who underwent randomization before December 1, This report is based on results in patients whose children were evaluated at 12 months. Damage to the spinal cord and peripheral nerves usually is evident at birth and is irreversible despite early postnatal surgical repair.


However, one fifth of those in the prenatal-surgery group had evidence of the respiratory distress syndrome, which was probably caused by prematurity. McLone DG, et al. All surgeons used a stapling device with absorbable staples for uterine entry.

The rates of adverse neonatal outcomes were generally similar between the two groups. Endoscopic third ventriculostomy for the treatment of hydrocephalus in a pediatric population with myelomeningocele. In the prenatal-surgery group, one woman chose postnatal surgery after randomization, and two women returned home for delivery.
