2. The Management of Myelomeningocele Study: full cohort 30-month pediatric outcomes

The Management of Myelomeningocele Study: full cohort 30-month pediatric outcomes Previous reports from the Management of Myelomeningocele Study demonstrated that prenatal repair of myelomeningocele reduces hindbrain herniation and the need for cerebrospinal fluid shunting, and improves motor function in children with myelomeningocele. The trial was stopped for efficacy after 183 patients were randomized, but 30-month outcomes were only available at the time of initial publication in 134 mother (...) -child dyads. Data from the complete cohort for the 30-month outcomes are presented here. Maternal and 12-month neurodevelopmental outcomes for the full cohort were reported previously.The purpose of this study is to report the 30-month outcomes for the full cohort of patients randomized to either prenatal or postnatal repair of myelomeningocele in the original Management of Myelomeningocele Study.Eligible women were randomly assigned to undergo standard postnatal repair or prenatal repair <26 weeks

5. Bladder Function After Fetal Surgery for Myelomeningocele (PubMed)

Bladder Function After Fetal Surgery for Myelomeningocele A substudy of the Management of Myelomeningocele Study evaluating urological outcomes was conducted.Pregnant women diagnosed with fetal myelomeningocele were randomly assigned to either prenatal or standard postnatal surgical repair. The substudy included patients randomly assigned after April 18, 2005. The primary outcome was defined in their children as death or the need for clean intermittent catheterization (CIC) by 30 months of age (...) . The implications of these findings are unclear now, but support the need for long-term urologic follow-up of patients with myelomeningocele regardless of type of surgical repair.Copyright © 2015 by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

10. A randomized trial of prenatal versus postnatal repair of myelomeningocele. (PubMed)

A randomized trial of prenatal versus postnatal repair of myelomeningocele. Prenatal repair of myelomeningocele, the most common form of spina bifida, may result in better neurologic function than repair deferred until after delivery. We compared outcomes of in utero repair with standard postnatal repair.We randomly assigned eligible women to undergo either prenatal surgery before 26 weeks of gestation or standard postnatal repair. One primary outcome was a composite of fetal or neonatal death (...) months. However, prenatal surgery was associated with an increased risk of preterm delivery and uterine dehiscence at delivery.Prenatal surgery for myelomeningocele reduced the need for shunting and improved motor outcomes at 30 months but was associated with maternal and fetal risks.
