There are a growing number and variety of fetal disorders that may benefit from intervention prior to birth. Despite the diversity, there are common pathophysiologic denominators or patterns that tie together many seemingly disparate disorders. The purpose of this article was not to review disorders presented in other, accompanying articles but, rather, to present pathophysiologic patterns that common influence fetal surgery within a cohesive framework.
