Diagnostic accuracy of fetal choroid plexus length to head biometry ratio at 11 to 13 weeks for open spina bifida

Abstract:
Background Open spina bifida is a major congenital anomaly with an estimated incidence of <1 in 1000. The diagnosis of open spina bifida is usually made during the second trimester, but first-trimester detection rate of spina bifida is increasingly reported. Recently, the mean choroid plexus length to occipitofrontal diameter ratio was reported to be increased in fetuses with open spina bifida. The ratio reflects the so-called dry brain effect caused by cerebrospinal fluid le... Expand abstract
