Prenatal diagnostics in the second trimester of pregnancy
At our DEGUM II gynaecology and prenatal diagnostics practice in Hamburg, we specialize in ultrasound examinations and other advanced diagnostic and therapeutic procedures during pregnancy, including precision diagnostics. Fine diagnostics, also known as fine ultrasound or detailed ultrasound examination, is carried out in the second trimester of pregnancy to provide a comprehensive and detailed assessment of the health and development of the fetus. Our high-resolution ultrasound equipment and experience enable us to examine the organs of the unborn child much more precisely than with conventional examinations in accordance with the maternity guidelines. We also offer fetal echocardiography, fetal neurosonography, Doppler sonography and 3D/4D sonography to assess the physical development of the unborn child, the placenta and the supply of the feto-maternal vessels.
The examination can also measure the amount of amniotic fluid to ensure that it is within the normal range. Too much or too little amniotic fluid can indicate problems. The position of the placenta is assessed to ensure that it is not positioned unfavorably in relation to the cervix or other structures. Fine diagnostics also make it possible to monitor the growth of the fetus and ensure that it corresponds to the expected pattern. Fine diagnostics is an important examination for the early detection of possible anomalies or developmental problems in the fetus. It also offers parents an opportunity to understand their baby’s health and development in more detail. If anomalies or abnormalities are detected during the detailed diagnosis, this may require further diagnostic tests or specialized care.
If there are any irregularities in your prenatal screening, we can carry out detailed diagnostics in every week of pregnancy and advise you in detail.
6-8 out of 1000 children are born with heart defects. With the help of fetal echocardiography, many heart defects can be diagnosed or ruled out before birth. Thanks to years of experience and state-of-the-art ultrasound equipment, we can offer you advanced cardiac diagnostics of the fetus as early as the first trimester of pregnancy, but especially in the second trimester, even though the little heart is only very small at this stage.
Intrauterine therapy for heart defects, also known as fetal heart intervention, refers to medical measures used to treat congenital heart defects in a fetus. This type of therapy is usually only performed in specialized medical centers and requires careful diagnosis to determine if the heart defect is severe enough to warrant intervention. In some cases, fetal heart intervention may also involve minimally invasive surgery, in which a catheter is inserted into the uterus to treat certain heart defects. For example, a balloon angioplasty can be performed to widen a narrowed heart valve or to treat pulmonary artery stenosis. In some cases, fetal surgery may also be necessary to correct certain defects.
It is important to note that not all heart defects can be treated prenatally and that the decision to use intrauterine therapy must be carefully considered. The risks of the treatment must be weighed against the potential benefits for the fetus and the mother.
Fetal neurosonography is a medical examination method in which the developing fetus in the womb is examined in detail for possible neurological abnormalities using ultrasound waves.
For special questions, we offer a detailed examination of the brain using 3D neurosonography.
child’s brain. For special questions, we offer a detailed examination of the child’s brain using 3D neurosonography. Our experience shows that the three-dimensional sonographic images of the fetal brain can help neuropediatricians in further consultations. These ultrasound images are similar to the sectional planes of an MRI and thus support the interpretation of malformations.
In addition to competent and comprehensive advice and treatment, we attach great importance to customized, individual medicine.
