Ex utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT) of severe fetal hydrothorax

Prontera, W
Published in Archives of Disease in Childhood Fetal and Neonatal Edition. 2002, vol. 86, no. 1, p. F58-60
Abstract Ex utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT) of a fetus with severe bilateral hydrothorax is described. EXIT allows therapeutic interventions on the neonate while maintaining fetoplacental circulation. Thus it may be useful for fetuses presenting with severe pleural effusion towards the end of gestation and in whom in utero drainage is technically not possible or available and drainage post partum would result in profound and prolonged hypoxia until sufficient drainage of pleural fluid allowed lung expansion.
