Fetal anomalies are typical – roughly, 3% of live-born infants possess a major hereditary anomaly. Whenever possible, primary prevention is ideal including strategies such as optimizing pre-conception diet and medical status, avoidance of dangerous substances and vaccination from certain illnesses. Many strategies are available to screen for structural and genetic abnormalities, and currently available tests have high recognition rates.
The patients identified as those who have fetal anomalies require an accurate and a comprehensive counseling, including the option of pregnancy termination. While fetal treatments are available for some conditions, most disorders are not amenable to the prenatal management or the curative pediatric therapy.
