Current Trends in Fetal Therapy: Educational Breakfast

In addition, a novel concept for improving neurodevelopmental outcomes in congenital heart disease through fetal intervention will be presented.

General session topics will span the spectrum of care from initial prenatal diagnosis and counseling, obstetrical management, and fetal surveillance and intervention, to delivery planning, neonatal care, and postnatal surgical options and approaches, with a focus on short- and long-term outcomes.

This series, “Optimizing Perinatal Care for Fetuses with Congenital Anomalies,” features joint presentations by CHOP specialists in maternal-fetal medicine, pediatric surgery, pediatric cardiology, pediatric urology and neonatology. All programs are open to our colleagues in maternal-fetal medicine, obstetrics, pediatric cardiology and neonatology. The lectures are CME-approved and offered free of charge, with dinner provided.

We sincerely hope you can join us — look for detailed invitations in the coming weeks! For more information or to RSVP, please email Abe Cooperman, or reach out by phone at 267-426-2506.

Collaborative Case Studies

Based on the success of our first Collaborative Case Studies dinner with Virtua Health in New Jersey, the Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment is looking for partners to expand this series.

The Center partnered with Virtua in November 2011 to present jointly on perinatal management of complicated twins. Physicians from both CHOP and Virtua provided participants with enhanced practical, evidenced-based management skills for diagnosing and managing complicated twin pregnancies — beginning in utero through delivery and into the nursery.

If you are interested in an educational partnership, please contact us at 1-800-IN-UTERO (1-800-468-8376) or use our online form
