In January 2020, in light of growing interest in the neonatal community, NeoReviews introduced a new Complex Fetal Care cases feature. Written by leading fetal care centers in the U S, this series highlights contemporary cases in fetal medicine, reviews current and evolving literature and data, and provides guidance on best practices. These articles cover a broad range of topics including a successful fetoscopic myelomeningocele repair, the approach to a fetus with a lethal skeletal dysplasia, and early prenatal diagnosis of spinal muscular atrophy type I.
Complex Fetal Care articles feature incredible radiographic images and photographs that allow readers to visualize uncommon diagnoses. For example, a case of twin reversed arterial perfusion sequence included a photograph of the vascular connections between twins after injection of milk into the placenta. Most cases have offered a practical clinical approach to a specific fetal diagnosis that will be useful for readers presented with similar diagnoses. Some cases have addressed the controversies and uncertainties of some management approaches in a field with limited research; we hope that this will encourage future research in these areas.
We look forward to continuing to publish this new case series to further enhance understanding of this rapidly evolving field. Our summer concludes with the most recent Complex Fetal Care article from August, “Fetal Disseminated Malignant Rhabdoid Tumor”.
