The practice of fetal medicine has major implications for individual families as well as for the entire society. Rapid evolution of this branch involves specific subspeciality training and updating in order to provide a high-quality standard of care. The aim of this Special Issue of Diagnostics is to explore recent advances and developments in fetal medicine, including early diagnosis of fetal abnormalities, screening and diagnosis for chromosomal defects and genetic syndromes, intrauterine fetal surgery, prediction and prevention of preeclampsia, preterm birth, stillbirth, prediction and management of abnormal fetal growth, obstetric problems of multiple pregnancies, and medically assisted reproduction. Submissions of original unpublished studies are welcome, including observational and interventional studies as well as RCTs and reviews, with an emphasis on relevant clinical questions and quantitative syntheses (meta-analyses) of pooled data. Authors are welcome to contact the Editorial Team in advance if they require any assistance for the preparation of their manuscript.
