Abstract

Interest in correcting fetal pathology before birth has been stimulated by advancing experimental technology and improvements in the ability of ultrasound to look into the uterus. In this article, diagnosis, management and treatments of three congenital defects, hydronephrosis, ventriculomegaly, and diaphragmatic hernia are discussed. The future of fetal in utero surgery also is considered.
