Objective: The aim of the study was to determine the efficacy of the 11-14 week scan in detecting fetuses with structural anomalies.Study design and methods: Prospective interventional study in an unselected population of pregnant women in a 5-year period (2003-2008) in a single ultrasound unit. 8889 fetuses with median CRL 65mm (45-84mm) were examined. Continuing pregnancies were rescanned at 20-22 weeks. Actual structural anomalies among newborns from the studied group were obtained from our computerized database. Results: The median maternal age was 30 years (14-50 years). The incidence of anomalies was 16.08 per 1000 (143/8889). Of these, 99 of the 143 were detected with prenatal sonography. 46.9% (67/143) of all anomalies were detected at the 11-14 week scan. Later in pregnancy, another 22.3% (32/143) of structural anomalies were detected. Conclusions: 67.7% of all antenatally detected malformations by ultrasound were recognized in the 11 14 week scan. Obviously, the second trimester scan cannot be abandoned, as it provides effective detection of other anomalies. Key words: fetal structural abnormalities, first trimester, prenatal diagnosis, ultrasound.
