When Nichelle Obar learned she was pregnant with her second child last year, she never expected that her pregnancy, or her baby, would make history. But when the 40-year-old food-and-beverage coordinator from Hawaii and her fiancé Christopher Constantino went to their 18-week ultrasound, they learned something was wrong. The heart was larger than it should have been, and there was evidence that fluid was starting to build up around the organ as well. Both were signs that the fetus was working extra hard to pump blood to its fast-growing body and that its heart was starting to fail. Obar’s doctor knew what coul...

CONCLUSIONS: Our results show that a diagnosis of confirmed isolated mild ventriculomegaly was associated with an increased risk of neurodevelopmental disorders compared to the reference population, but the absolute risk was low and there were no cases of intellectual disability or cerebral palsy.

Publication date: September 2018Source: Neuroscience &Biobehavioral Reviews, Volume 92Author(s): Francesca Fulceri, Andrea Guzzetta, Argyro Athanasiadou, Laura Iaconianni, Maria Luisa ScattoniAbstractThere is a growing research interest on the antenatal features of children with neurodevelopmental disorders. Indeed, it has been proved that the neurodevelopment is, at least partly, affected by processes occurring in fetal life and that the early neurodevelopmental disorders identification is essential to optimize long-term outcomes.This systematic review aims to summarize findings on antenatal ultrasound data, which are...

To the Editor The article “Association of Prenatal Ultrasonography and Autism Spectrum Disorder” by Rosman et al reports “significantly greater mean depth of ultrasonographic penetration in the ASD [autism spectrum disorder] group compared with the developmental delay group in the first trimester and compared with the typical development group in the first and second trimesters. Further research is needed to determine whether other variables of ultrasound exposure also have adverse effects on the developing fetus.” These words, which appear in the conclusion of the abstract, do not accurately reflec...

Left-handedness, as a relatively uncommon phenomenon, never fails to fascinate people. There is a common perception that left-handed people are more talented and artistic. To what extent these assumptions are correct, and what your preferred use of right or left hand can tell you about your brain structure? Handedness represents the better performance or preference of using one hand, i.e., the dominant hand. Right-handedness is the most common type observed in 70–95% of the world population, followed by left-handedness, and then a very rare type of mixed handedness and ambidexterity. Although this is an important ph...
