This study describes pregnancy outcome of a population of foetuses with increased NT that were examined in a medical practice by a single observer over a period of 10 years with state of the art ultrasound equipment. We observed a relatively large proportion of foetuses with abnormal karyotype. In euploid foetuses, increased NT was associated with a wide range of foetal malformations and genetic syndromes. What are the implications of these findings for clinical practice and/or further research? Even mildly increased NT thickness is associated with an adverse pregnancy outcome, underlining the importance of thorough...
