1,489 Possible Causes for Neural Tube Defect

  • Inadequate Dietary Intake of Folic Acid

    tube defects (NTDs).[pediatrics.aappublications.org] For example, a family history of neural tube defect (NTD) clearly plays a role.[mychildwithoutlimits.org] Studies show that this greatly reduces a baby's risk of serious neural tube defects. What Are Neural Tube Defects?[kidshealth.org]

  • Folic Acid Deficiency

    Folate Deficiency and Folic Acid Supplementation: The Prevention of Neural-Tube Defects and Congenital Heart Defects. Nutrients 2013, 5, 4760-4775.[doi.org] Neural tube defects include anencephaly, spina bifida and encepholocele [ 2 ]. Neural tube defects are preventable causes of morbidity and mortality [ 3 ].[scifedpublishers.com] Digra NC (2004) Primary Prevention of Neural Tube Defects. JK Science.[imedpub.com]

  • Folic Acid

    tube defects with either nonmalformed infants or infants who had malformations not caused by neural tube defects.[doi.org] During the study period, we identified 2446 subjects with neural-tube defects.[doi.org] Neural tube defects are major birth defects of the brain and spine that occur early in pregnancy due to improper closure of the embryonic neural tube, which may lead to a[doi.org]

  • Meningomyelocele

    Meningomyelocele is a neural tube defect, presenting as a protrusion of the spinal cord and meninges, due to incomplete closure of the neural tube.[symptoma.com] One of the most common and severe neural tube defects is meningomyelocele (MM) resulting from failed closure of the caudal end of the neural tube.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: The long-term urologic outcome in a large series of patients with neural tube defects was evaluated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spina Bifida

    One of the most common neural tube defects is spina bifida, which means split spine .[spineuniverse.com] One of the most common neural tube defects is spina bifida, which means split spine.[spineuniverse.com] […] in diagnosing and treating even complex neural tube defects.[hopkinsmedicine.org]

  • Folate-Deficiency Anemia

    A lack of folate during pregnancy is linked to major birth defects that affect the brain, spinal cord, and spine (neural tube defects).[assets.cooperhealth.org] Folate-deficiency anemia in pregnancy may cause a neural tube defect. This is when the brain or spinal cord doesn’t develop normally.[assets.cooperhealth.org] Folate-deficiency anemia during pregnancy may cause a neural tube defect. This is when the brain or spinal cord doesn’t develop normally.[assets.cooperhealth.org]

  • Jarcho-Levin Syndrome

    There have been no previous studies in the literature on the anesthetic management of JLS with neural tube defects and hydrocephalus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present 4 cases of JLS with neural tube defects as the prominent finding.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Jarcho-Levin syndrome (JLS) is a genetic disorder characterized by distinct malformations of the ribs and vertebrae, and/or other associated abnormalities such as neural tube[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency

    Neural tube defects If you're pregnant, not having enough vitamin B12 can increase the risk of your baby developing a serious birth defect known as a neural tube defect.[nhs.uk] Folate deficiency in the periconceptional period contributes to neural tube defects; deficits in vitamin B12 (cobalamin) have negative consequences on the developing brain[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Impaired maternal folate intake and status increases the risk of neural tube defects.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Megaloblastic Anaemia in Pregnancy

    Neural tube defects If you're pregnant, not having enough vitamin B12 can increase the risk of your baby developing a serious birth defect known as a neural tube defect.[nhs.uk] Because of the association between neural tube defects and folate deficiency, it is recommended that women of reproductive age take folic acid supplementation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A lack of folate during pregnancy is linked to major birth defects that affect the brain, spinal cord, and spine (neural tube defects).[hopkinsmedicine.org]

  • Lipomyelomeningocele

    PURPOSE: Neural tube defects (NTDs) are a group of widely varying congenital malformations resulting from incomplete or improper fusion of the neural tube during embryonic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Purpose: Neural tube defects (NTDs) are a group of widely varying congenital malformations resulting from incomplete or improper fusion of the neural tube during[nature.com] @article{7d5bcf21f69e49a6bf59e7eaa3419f9c, title "Recurrence risks for neural tube defects in siblings of patients with lipomyelomeningocele", abstract "Purpose: Neural tube[utexas.influuent.utsystem.edu]
