Fetal stomach paracentesis in combined duodenal and esophageal atresia.

J Med Ultrason (2001) 2014 Jul 14;41(3):397-400. Epub 2014 Jan 14.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, School of Medicine, Keio University, 35 Shinanomachi, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, 160-8582, Japan.

Fetuses with concomitant duodenal atresia (DA) and esophageal atresia (EA) might develop in utero gastric rupture as well as neonatal respiratory complication due to dilated stomach and duodenum. Our patient with the typical "double bubble" appearance was highly suspected to have DA in the second trimester. Follow-up examinations revealed a massively dilated stomach and duodenum with a dilated distal esophagus, indicating concomitant DA and EA. Read More

Second trimester ultrasound markers of fetal aneuploidy.

Clin Obstet Gynecol 2014 Mar;57(1):159-81

*Fetal Medicine Foundation, Dayton †Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio.

Although it is widely accepted that the best time to screen for chromosomal abnormalities is the first trimester, ultrasound evaluation of the fetus in the second trimester has also been shown to be useful for this purpose. A multitude of markers of varying strength has been developed over the past 30 years. In addition, the optimal time to diagnose fetal anomalies with confidence is also the mid second trimester.

TACRD and VACTERL associations in a fetus: case report and review of the literature.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2013 Dec 23;77(12):2081-5. Epub 2013 Sep 23.

Department of Ultrasonography, Second Xiangya Hospital of Central South University, Changsha, China.

Tracheal agenesis is a rare and potentially lethal congenital anomaly. The incidence is less than 1/50,000, with a male:female ratio of 2:1. We report the case of a male fetus with complete agenesis of the trachea and a tracheoesophageal fistula arising from the esophagus that connected through the carina, as well as several abnormalities (congenital cardiac abnormalities, duodenal atresia, vertebral defects, anal atresia, renal defects, limb defects, and diaphragmatic hernia).

Monochorionic twin fetus with VACTERL association after intracytoplasmic sperm injection.

Congenit Anom (Kyoto) 2013 Jun;53(2):95-7

Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology Neonatology, Iwate Medical University School of Medicine, Morioka, Japan.

We report a rare case of a monochorionic twin gestation after intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) in which one of the fetuses had VACTERL association. A 27-year-old woman became pregnant by ICSI and was found to have monochorionic twin fetuses. One fetus was noted to have the following anomalies: a multicystic, dysplastic left kidney with a hydroureter, and a dilated colon. Read More

Haploinsufficiency of retinaldehyde dehydrogenase 2 decreases the severity and incidence of duodenal atresia in the fibroblast growth factor receptor 2IIIb-/- mouse model.

Surgery 2012 Oct;152(4):768-75; discussion 775-6

Department of Surgery, Section of Pediatric Surgery, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison, WI, USA.

Background: Homozygous null mutation of the fibroblast growth factor receptor 2IIIb (Fgfr2IIIb) gene in mice results in 42% of embryos developing duodenal atresias. Retinaldehyde dehydrogenase 2 (Raldh2, a gene critical for the generation of retinoic acid) is expressed in the mouse duodenum during the temporal window when duodenal atresias form. Raldh2 is critical for the normal development of the pancreatoduodenal region; therefore, we were interested in the effect of a Raldh2 mutation on duodenal atresia formation. Read More
