Esperi un moment Amniotic band sequence: prenatal diagnosis, phenotype descriptions, and a proposal of a new classification based on morphologic findings. Defecto aislado craneofacial, en extremidad o en pared corporal. Material and methods. Cases with a final diagnosis of amniotic band sequence, diagnosed between January and July in the Department of Maternal Fetal Medicine, were reviewed. Demographic, clinical, and periconceptional data were collected, and the defects were described and classified.
The association frequencies of the defects were also determined. We included 50 cases with prenatal diagnosis of amniotic band sequence.
The mean maternal age was The most frequent defects were the following: a Encephalocele and facial clefts in the craniofacial group. The amniotic band sequence shows a tendency to affect women who are in their earlier years of reproduction. We observed an inverse relationship between the number of pregnancies and the frequency of presentation of this pathology.
The majority of affected fetuses showed a phenotype that fit into one of many groups. Therefore, we propose classifying the amniotic band sequence phenotypes into the following groups: I. Isolated defect.. Texto completo Ver PDF.
