In the postnatal-surgery group, two neonates died, both with severe symptoms of the Chiari II malformation; both had received shunts. The same procedure was separately conducted for the calculated difference between functional and anatomical level. The improvements were probably associated with the timing of the repair, which may have permitted more normal nervous-system development prenatally. Endoscopic third ventriculostomy for the treatment of hydrocephalus in a pediatric population with myelomeningocele.
Hydrocephalus is treated by diverting cerebrospinal fluid to the peritoneal cavity by the surgical placement of a shunt, which then requires lifelong monitoring.
Prenatal screening and testing. We compared outcomes of in utero repair with standard postnatal repair. We compared continuous variables using the Wilcoxon test and categorical variables using the chi-square test, Fisher’s exact test, or the Cochran—Armitage test for trend. Open neural tube defects: Design and methodological considerations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urologic and renal protocol for the newborn and young child with spina bifida.
All other fetal-intervention centers in the United States agreed not to perform prenatal surgery for myelomeningocele while the trial was ongoing. Ferri’s Clinical Advisor Maternal morbidity and pregnancy complications that were related to prenatal surgery included oligohydramnios, chorioamniotic separation, placental abruption, and spontaneous membrane rupture.
Pregnancy and Neonatal Complications There were no maternal deaths. All surgeons used a stapling device with absorbable staples for uterine entry. 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. Chorioamniotic separation, which increases the risk of premature membrane rupture,20 was observed on ultrasonography in one fourth of women after prenatal surgery.

Primary Outcomes Two primary outcomes were prespecified. Finally, for the children in this study, continued follow-up is needed to assess whether the early benefits are durable and to evaluate the effect of prenatal intervention on bowel and bladder continence, sexual function, and mental capacity.

The month examination included radiography of the spine to determine mielomeninvocele anatomical level of the lesion and magnetic resonance imaging of the head and spine. Solicite una Consulta en Mayo Clinic. Movement in the lower limbs may be lost, and hindbrain herniation and hydrocephalus may worsen during fetal gestation.
Dukhovny S, et al. On both the Bayley and Peabody motor scales, the prenatal-surgery group had better motor function than the postnatal-surgery group, even though those in the prenatal-surgery group had more severe anatomical levels of lesions.
The trial was stopped for efficacy of prenatal surgery after the recruitment of of a planned patients. Surgical revisions are common to address shunt failure or infection. An independent pediatrician determined the functional level of the lesion by assessing motorsensory and distal somatosensory function, a determination that was confirmed by videotape review by an independent expert.
We randomly assigned eligible women to undergo either prenatal surgery before 26 weeks of gestation or standard postnatal repair. Preterm labor leading to early delivery, placental abruption, and pulmonary edema associated with tocolytic therapy are well-known complications of prenatal surgery. The assessment of the hysterotomy site at the time of delivery revealed thinning or an area of dehiscence in more than one third of the women. Despite folic acid fortification, the incidence of myelomeningocele has stabilized at 3.
Early fetal movements in myelomeningocele. The results of this trial should not be generalized to patients who undergo procedures at less experienced centers or who do not meet the eligibility criteria. 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.
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. Ranges of scores and implications of higher scores are provided in Table 4Table 4 Outcomes of Children at 30 Months. Parent-reported self-care and mobility, as measured by the WeeFIM instrument, were significantly better in the prenatal-surgery group. Folic acid supplementation in pregnancy. The data and safety monitoring committee met on December 7,and recommended termination of the trial on the basis of efficacy of prenatal surgery.
This malformation is also associated with hydrocephalus and developmental brain abnormalities. For the first primary end point, we report the The trial was approved by the institutional review board at each center. A group sequential method was used to characterize the rate at which the type I error was spent; the chosen spending function was the Lan—DeMets characterization of the O’Brien—Fleming boundary. 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.
Dietary supplement fact sheet: One primary outcome was a composite of fetal or neonatal death or the need for placement of a cerebrospinal fluid shunt by the age of 12 months.

Alpha-fetoprotein AFPsingle marker screen, maternal, serum. The study protocol, including the statistical analysis plan and full inclusion and exclusion criteria, is available with cirrugia full text of this article at NEJM. Previous cohort studies have suggested improved outcomes with prenatal surgery for myelomeningocele. Because this trial was unmasked and criteria for shunt placement vary widely, an independent committee of neurosurgeons, who were mislomeningocele of study-group assignments, reviewed the clinical and radiologic data for each child to determine whether criteria for shunt placement were met.
Several aspects of the prenatal-surgery technique that was used in this trial warrant comment. In our study, prenatal surgery for myelomeningocele reduced the need for shunting and improved motor outcomes at 30 months, but the early intervention was associated with both maternal and fetal morbidity.
