Anal atresia main pic.png

Anal atresia

Anal atresia refers to the congenital absence or blockage of the anus and is part of a wider spectrum of anorectal malformations. Most cases are diagnosed postnatally, but identification of the fetal perianal muscular complex in the second and third trimester has been shown to be feasible.

Placenta previa

Placenta previa is diagnosed when the placenta overlies or is close to the internal cervical os, obstructing delivery. The incidence is of 5 in 1000 deliveries and it has recently increased due to the rise in cesarean deliveries. PP is associated with a higher risk of adverse maternal outcomes.



Miscarriage is the most common complication of pregnancy, and affects 25% of women who have been pregnant by the age of 39 years. It is essential that ultrasound diagnosis is made with 100% specificity, so that there is no danger of inadvertent termination of a viable pregnancy.
