Abstract

The introduction of transabdominal fiberoptic thin-gauge visualization of the embryo or fetus in the first trimester allows an earlier diagnosis of congenital anomalies currently beyond the resolution of ultrasound. In addition, it has the true potential of providing access to the fetal circulation at an early age, an accomplishment that would have enormous diagnostic and therapeutic implications. In the second and third trimester, operative fetoscopic techniques promise to open a new frontier in the diagnosis and management of fetal surgical and medical conditions.
