A survey of non-cardiac fetal intrathoracic malformations diagnosed by ultrasound

I. Meizner, A. Levy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Between November 1986 and April 1993, 22 cases of intrathoracic abnormality were detected prenatally by ultrasound, and examined postnatally. There were 11 cases of diaphragmatic hernia, 5 cases of cystic adenomatoid malformation of lung, one case of chylothorax, two cases of lung sequestration, and three cases of bronchogenic cyst. The total number of deliveries during that period was 48,281 and the total number of major anomalies at that time was 669 (1.38%). Cases of hydrothorax of various etiology, as well as thoracic cage anomalies were excluded. Prenatal diagnosis allows planned delivery and the assembly of neonatologists and pediatric surgeons.
