Doppler changes in the umbilical artery and ductus venosus during fetoscopic prenatal surgical repair of myelomeningocele
Cardiac dysfunction has been described in 60% of fetuses undergoing open myelomeningocele (MMC) repair. Routine Doppler evaluation of the umbilical artery (UA) and ductus venosus (DV) is challenging during fetal surgery. This study describes Doppler changes in the UA and DV in a cohort of fetuses during MMC repair.
