Immediate operative management of the fetus with airway anomalies resulting from congenital malformations


Laje, Pablo; Tharakan, Sasha J; Hedrick, Holly L (2016). Immediate operative management of the fetus with airway anomalies resulting from congenital malformations. Seminars in Fetal & Neonatal Medicine, 21(4):240-245.

Abstract

Prenatal diagnosis has transformed the outcome of fetuses with airway obstruction. The thorough evaluation of prenatal imaging allows for categorizing fetuses with airway compromise into those who will require a special mode of delivery and those who can be delivered without any special resources. The ex-utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT) approach allows accessing the airway while the fetus is under placental support, converting a potentially catastrophic situation into a controlled one. An expert multidisciplinary team is the key to success.
