Fetal surgery: General principles

Eric Jelin, Hanmin Lee

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Studies in small and large animals have demonstrated the efficacy and safety of fetal surgery for selected cases of certain life-threatening fetal diseases. The first open surgery on a human fetus was performed for congenital bladder obstruction in 1981 by Dr. Michael Harrison at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Since then, advanced fetal imaging has dramatically improved our understanding of congenital anomalies and has opened the door to new treatments and minimally invasive techniques.
