A retrospective study of 56 pregnancies complicated by ultrasound-detected isolated Spina Bifida in the years 1982–2009 was performed. Cases diagnosed after 24 weeks (Italian legal limit for termination) were excluded (N = 17). Decisions of the remaining 39 women were examined according to: year of diagnosis (1982-1995 vs 1996-2009), maternal age, parity, level of lesion and presence or absence of ventriculomegaly. The lesion level was classified as low when the uppermost vertebral defect was below L3, or as high when it was higher than L4. Ventriculomegaly was defined as a ventricular atrial width ≥ 10 mm.

Abstract

A retrospective study of 56 pregnancies complicated by ultrasound-detected isolated Spina Bifida in the years 1982–2009 was performed. Cases diagnosed after 24 weeks (Italian legal limit for termination) were excluded (N = 17). Decisions of the remaining 39 women were examined according to: year of diagnosis (1982-1995 vs 1996-2009), maternal age, parity, level of lesion and presence or absence of ventriculomegaly. The lesion level was classified as low when the uppermost vertebral defect was below L3, or as high when it was higher than L4. Ventriculomegaly was defined as a ventricular atrial width ≥ 10 mm.
