This is the second edition of the Special Issue ‘Updates on Prenatal Diagnosis and Maternal Fetal Medicine’ (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/jcm/special_issues/Prenatal_Maternal_Fetal).
Hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn as well as alloimmunthrombocytopenia in the fetus are important issues in maternofetal medicine. Studies in this domain are continually evolving and the emerging therapeutic options seem promising. Moreover, congenital heart disease is the single most frequent congenital anomaly. The focus of analyses has now shifted from solely diagnostics to the evaluation of myocardial fetal function and transmission into the newborns. We aim to present the recent research works pertaining to these aforemntioned fields in this Special Issue.
Additionally, fetal therapy, with varying techniques, for open spina bifida has been established at distinguished centers. We thus endeavour to highlight the latest research results on indications, and maternal and fetal outcomes in this Speical Issue.
Prof. Dr. Roland Axt-Fliedner
