Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent decades, significant progress has been made in the field of morphological ultrasound, and thus the prenatal diagnosis for most congenital anomalies is more accurate. Earlier diagnosis offers physicians important information about the prenatal evolution of the pathology, representing the history of the described anomaly.

Corroborating the prenatal investigations with postnatal assessment, we are able to guide therapeutic strategy, taking into account not only the current condition but also the complete evolution of the pathology.

This Special Issue, titled “Prenatal Diagnosis—Postnatal Implications”, aims to highlight the significance of prenatal diagnosis in the management of congenital anomalies, considering multiple therapeutic approaches, such as fetal surgery, non-operative management, and surgical management.

We invite authors to contribute to this Special Issue with original articles and comprehensive review articles.

We will be glad to welcome any well-documented contribution.
