Short‐term results of patients with neural tube defects followed‐up in the Konya region, Turkey

Abstract: Background: Additional congenital anomalies have often been found in patients with neural tube defect (NTD). We aimed to find out the clinical features, short term prognosis, treatment approaches, and systemic anomalies of NTD patients in the Konya region.

Results: When the application month of the patients was examined, it was seen that the m… Show more

“…female babies (2.14%) account more than male babies (1.24%). In contrast, malformations were found to be more common in male fetuses (0.60%) than female fetuses (0.25%) in a study (7,11). However, in our study, the overall incidence of malformation was high in female fetuses (54%).…”

“…Out of which hydrocephalus ( Figure 1) and anencephaly were the commonest. It is comparable to a study by Yorulmaz et al in which hydrocephalus is most common (75.3%) NTD (11). CNS anomalies top the list as depicted in the studies by Sachdeva et al (59.57%) (5), Gaur et al (41.09%) (7), Hussain et al (20.35%) (5,7,8).…”

“…In addition, potential confounding factors, such as folic acid supplementation and regional environmental variation, were considered and matched in our study design. The effect of folic acid supplementation on birth defects is controversial; [21][22][23] nevertheless, in this study, maternal folic acid intake was well matched, and the association between paternal smoking and birth defects was observed both in the population-based cohort analysis and in the matched case-control analysis.…”

“…Accordingly, two studies evaluated cases in the prenatal period and reported the anencephaly ratio of 42.8% and 54.1%, occipital encephalocele 17.9% and 5.4%, spina bifida 39.3% and 40.5%, respectively [24,25]. A study evaluated cases at the delivery time found anencephaly 2.1%, encephalocele 7.0%, and spina bifida 91.9% [26]. n this study, we found that the ratio of anencephaly 35.29%, encephalocele 25%, spina bifida 39.27% and similar to studies that evaluated prenatal cases.…”
