Craniorachischisis

Craniorachischises


Presentation

  • At present, the genetic basis determining the different phenotypes observed in our twins is unknown.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • To present the prenatal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of concomitant craniorachischisis and omphalocele, review the literature, and discuss the pathogenesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Second, it shows us that the postmortem examination should be performed by an experienced anatomist: embryos need to be embedded in paraffin wax for microscopic observation and, at present, little is known about the abnormalities of embryo anatomy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Clinical description Craniorachischisis totalis, the most complete form of craniorachischisis, presents anencephaly and total spina bifida together and is lethal.[orpha.net]
  • While this scientific content is of paramount importance, however, care has been taken to ensure that the information is presented in a way that is accessible to readers working within a range of disciplines in the clinical neurosciences, and that also[books.google.es]
Musculoskeletal Pain
  • Practical, clinically relevant material facilitates the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal, pain, and chronic disabling conditions.[books.google.com]
Dystonia
  • Stay current with expanded and updated coverage of diagnosis, management and rehabilitation of Cervical Dystonia, Suprascapular Neuropathy, Epicondylitis, Temporomandibular Joint Pain, Spinal Cord Injury, Stroke, Adhesive Capsulitis of the Hip, and Adductor[books.google.com]

Treatment

  • Practical, clinically relevant material facilitates the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal, pain, and chronic disabling conditions.[books.google.com]
  • Make informed clinical choices for each patient, from diagnosis and treatment selection through post-treatment strategies and management of complications, with new evidence-based criteria throughout.[books.google.com]
  • The material is in no way intended to replace professional medical care by a qualified specialist and should not be used as a basis for diagnosis or treatment.[orpha.net]
  • Treatment and prognosis Prognosis is poor and death often occurs in utero however live births are possible 1,2 . neural tube defects anencephaly Promoted articles (advertising)[radiopaedia.org]
  • However, a variety of treatments can sometimes prevent further damage and help with complications. NIH: National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Anencephaly (Medical Encyclopedia) [ Read More ][icdlist.com]

Prognosis

  • Treatment and prognosis Prognosis is poor and death often occurs in utero however live births are possible 1,2 . neural tube defects anencephaly Promoted articles (advertising)[radiopaedia.org]
  • Remarkably intracardiac defects do not seem to affect prognosis much.[alliedacademies.org]
  • Both the management and prognosis is heavily dependent on the type of neural tube defect.[radiopaedia.org]
  • The prognosis of Cantrell pentalogy is related to the severity of defects identified.[ijcasereportsandimages.com]
  • The most common NTD compatible with life and a positive prognosis is myelomeningocele (see the images below). Myelomeningocele in a newborn. The incidence of myelomeningocele is 1 case in 1200–1400 live births.[emedicine.medscape.com]

Etiology

  • We suggest that other PCP genes should be considered as candidates for a role in the etiology of human NTDs. Further investigations are therefore necessary.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Etiology As with other neural tube defects, craniorachischisis is thought to be of multifactorial origin. Antenatal diagnosis Antenatal diagnosis is possible by ultrasonographic monitoring.[orpha.net]

Epidemiology

  • Summary Epidemiology The prevalence is not known. Clinical description Craniorachischisis totalis, the most complete form of craniorachischisis, presents anencephaly and total spina bifida together and is lethal.[orpha.net]

Prevention

  • Parental counseling and folic acid supplement, started before conception and continued through out the pregnancy are the recommended preventive measures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Prevention of the first occurrence of neural-tube defects by periconceptional vitamin supplementation. ‎[books.google.es]
