Neural tube defects : from origin to treatment

Author: Diego F Wyszynski
Publisher: Oxford ; New York, NY : Oxford University Press, 2006.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Neural tube defects (NTDs) involve incomplete development of the embryonic structure that becomes the brain and spinal cord. They affect about 4,000 pregnancies a year and thus are among the most common of severe birth defects. Spina bifida and anencephaly account for 90% of them. Their incidence is dropping, however, because of the use of folic acid dietary supplements to prevent these defects. Prenatal diagnosis  Read more...

Abstract:

Prenatal diagnosis can detect neural tube defects (NTDs), but the tests produce many false positives, so the question is under what circumstances should they be recommended to pregnant women. This  Read more...
