Perinatal management of spina bifida

L Padayachy, D Ochieng

Abstract


The management of patients with myelomeningocele is largely dependent on the timing of the diagnosis, i.e. ante- or postnatally. Antenatal diagnosis can be made using a combination of maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein measurement, fetal ultrasonography and, where necessary, amniocentesis.
