Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Many advances in healthcare are built on advances in technology. In the case of fetal medicine, technology has availed an entirely new patient population. The authors report a case of severe micrognathia and Pierre Robin Sequence that was diagnosed prenatally. Antenatal planning and treatment were instituted via the Fetal Diagnosis/Treatment Team to avoid loss of the neonate's airway. An EXIT procedure was utilized to ensure a secure airway. The benefits of team care for these types of deformities are highlighted including the importance of craniomaxillofacial specialists.
