Fluid In The Brain Cavity During 28 Weeks Of Pregnancy?
Good evening, I want to ask, 28 mg of pregnancy when I am ultrasound and it is predicted that there is fluid in the phenterical space in my baby, what are the dangers?
Fluid in the brain cavity (ventricles) is actually a reasonable condition. Brain fluid (cerebrospinal fluid) is produced by a network of brain linings that serves to maintain the position of the brain, reduce shocks and pressure, as well as a means to get rid of brain metabolism through the absorption of blood vessels. However, there is a medical condition, namely hydrocephalus where there is a buildup of fluid in the brain cavity, which can be caused by impaired absorption of brain fluid (can be caused by inflammation / infection / injury to the brain) and / or disruption of brain fluid flow. This condition can occur since the fetus. The originator of congenital hydrocephalus is a mother who has a TORCH infection before / early in pregnancy.
The buildup of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain cavity, certainly dangerous because it can suppress the brain around the brain cavity so that it can cause a decrease in brain function or even damage to brain function. Hydrocephalus conditions are usually known since the fetus will be treated immediately after the baby is born. To determine whether the condition that your fetus is experiencing is dangerous or not, you should ask in detail the Obstetrics and Gynecology Specialist who has been treating you so far. Usually the doctor will conduct periodic medical examinations with USG every month. 3D / 4D ultrasound may be needed to determine the condition of the brain cavity and the amount of fetal cerebrospinal fluid. Specialist doctors will usually hold discussions with the Pediatrician Team related to the handling of babies at birth.
While waiting for the birth period do routine control to the Obstetrics and Gynecologist, maintain health by eating a balanced nutritious food and adequate rest. Do regular exercise that is safe for pregnant women.
