To assess long‐term neurodevelopmental outcomes in children after radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for twin reversed arterial perfusion (TRAP) sequence.
This cross‐sectional study included children who underwent RFA for the TRAP sequence between 2012 and 2018. We assessed neurodevelopment in children using the Kinder Infant Development Scale, a validated questionnaire. The developmental...
To examine the outcomes of prenatally diagnosed lower urinary tract obstruction (LUTO) with current management using vesicoamniotic shunting (VAS).
A retrospective study of prenatally diagnosed LUTO before 26 weeks of gestation at two tertiary centers in Japan between March 2002 and September 2017. LUTO was diagnosed by ultrasound demonstration of an enlarged fetal bladder associated...
This study aimed to compare the accuracy of fetal pulse pressure estimated with a vascular simulator with that obtained by a manometer (reference) and evaluate the pulse pressure in normal human fetuses and fetuses whose mothers received corticosteroids.
Fetal pulse pressure was estimated as the product of blood flow velocity and pulse wave velocity, based on the water hammer equation...
Phased tracking (PT) is an ultrasound-based technique that enables precise measurement of a target velocity. The aims of this study were to use PT to evaluate arterial pulse waveform, pulse wave velocity and fetal pulse pressure in normal and growth-restricted fetuses. One hundred fetuses with normal development and 15 fetuses with growth restriction were analyzed. Ultrasonic raw radiofrequency signals...
