fetal neurology

by fetal

  • ritsuko k. pooh (author),
  • asim kurjak (author)


the current and evolving challenge for investigators in obstetric ultrasound is to have similar success with the understanding of fetal neurological function. there are many functional neurological abnormalities such as cerebral palsy whose causes are poorly understood. this uncertainty regarding causation vitalizes plaintiff’s attorneys in the united states and increasingly throughout the world who attempt to relate these neurological abnormalities exclusively to intrapartum events such as usage of oxytocin, forceps deliveries and failure to perform a cesarean delivery. while there are some cases where causation is probably related to such intrapartum events, this is usually not the case. more than any other innovation, obstetric ultrasound has transformed clinical practice from the dark ages to the enlightenment—in one generation. it is hard to find an aspect of modern obstetric practice that does not utilize the ability to see the fetus a patient. the most exciting frontier of ultrasound uplifting clinical understanding and care is the field of fetal neurology. asim kurjak and ritsuko k pooh have pioneered this field and this text presents the state-of the-art with leading investigators from throughout the world. embryology forms the basis of our understanding and kohei shiota is the world leader in this vital foundation. asim kurjak, ritsuko k pooh, guillermo azumendi, aida salihagic kadic, and their teams describe in exquisite and beautiful detail our current ability to see the structure and function of the fetal nervous system. they are truly artists using a wonderful art form. the important relation of the fetal patient and the newborn is presented by claudine amiel-tison, a pioneer and milan stanojevic, an emerging neonatal leader in this field. the new topics of cerebral hemodynamics, maturation of cerebral connections, and molecular genetics are lucidly presented by the world authorities of graziano clerici, gian carlo di renzo, ivica kostovic, and ana stavljenic-rukavina. fetal neurology presents the art and the science of an emerging field that is sure to grow in clinical importance. this text is recommended to all who wish to learn what modern obstetric ultrasound can and will do.
