There Is No Covering Of The Chest Cavity In Fetuses Aged 16 Weeks?
Afternoon doctor, I want brtanya … Yesterday my friend was right when he was diagnosed with 16 weeks gestational age there was a problem with the organs … He said, there was no cover on the chest cavity … Does the only way you should digugurin? Or is there still hope for perfect growth?
Hello Polman, thank you for asking.
Fetal growth and development starts from the embryonic stage. Occasionally, abnormal growth and development of embryos occur, causing fetal defects. Disability can occur limited to the shape of the limbs, or it can also be in the form of organ deformity, organ location, or organ function. The disability is called a congenital disorder, meaning that the disorder occurs since the fetus is in the womb.
Not all types of congenital abnormalities are fatal. For example, polydactyl, which is a congenital abnormality in the form of additional fingers. In non-fatal congenital abnormalities, the fetus can grow normally so that it is born into a healthy baby. However, if congenital abnormalities are very severe, then the likelihood of the fetus surviving becomes very small. Alternatively, the fetus can still be born alive, but generally will die within a few moments. For example, anencephaly, which is a congenital abnormality in the form of a brain that does not develop and does not have a skull. Anencephaly fetuses can be born alive, but generally die within a few hours or days.
We don't know how severe your friend's fetal congenital abnormalities are. Most likely, the chest cavity wall will not be fully formed. If indeed the disorder is severe, then the chances of a fetus's life will also decrease dramatically. The decision to make an abortion depends on the parents of the fetus. Doctors generally recommend abortion as an indication that the fetus is unlikely to survive, or to reduce the suffering of the fetus.
Thus a brief explanation that I can give. May be useful. Regards.
