Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The improvement of antenatal management and surgical techniques has greatly increased the survival rate of infants with spina bifida. More of these women are reaching adulthood and reproductive age and therefore could become pregnant. Pregnancy complications depend on the kind of spina bifida and subject's condition.We report a case of woman with a severe kyphoscoliosis, that progressively affects lung capacity until 32 weeks of gestation, when she underwent caesarean section.These patients deserve careful obstetric care, genetic counselling and urological, obstetric, neurological and anaesthetic management.
