Fetal in utero surgical interventions

In utero fetal surgery for structural anomalies that can interfere with organ development may allow normal development to take place and therefore improve perinatal outcome. However, there are a number of major factors that need to be considered before fetal surgery can be offered. First, appropriate patient selection is essential, the condition needs to have been detected early enough to intervene before irreversible damage has already occurred and the maternal risks of anaesthesia and surgery which may involve hysterotomy needs to be considered as well as the risks of preterm labour and fetal demise during the procedure. Finally, the evidence that the intervention is of benefit to the fetus needs to be discussed with the parents.
