Birth defects are the leading cause of death in the first year of life. Yet the future is brightening. Recent medical advances have enabled doctors to diagnose and treat some birth defects before birth, affording affected children a much greater chance at survival. Additionally, advances in our understanding of the causes of birth defects allow prospective parents to take steps to minimize the chance that an infant will be born with these types of disorders.
Congenital Disorders Sourcebook, Fourth Edition describes the most common types of nonhereditary birth defects and disorders related to prematurity, gestational injuries, prenatal and perinatal infections, maternal health conditions during pregnancy, and birth complications, including cerebral palsy, cleft lip and palate, fetal alcohol syndrome, spina bifida, and disorders of the heart, brain, gastrointestinal tract, musculoskeletal system, urinary tract, and reproductive organs. Causes, prevention strategies, and diagnostic tests are explained, and innovative treatment strategies, including fetal surgery, are described. The book concludes with a glossary of related terms and a directory of resources for further help and information.
