Presentation

Advances both in fetal ultrasound –with the definition of new markers and strategies for aneuploidy screening- and reproductive genetics – with the evolvement of non-invasive prenatal testing and diagnostic molecular techniques- have shifted prenatal diagnosis to the first trimester. Furthermore, current knowledge on the natural history of the classical obstetrical syndromes – preeclampsia, prematurity and diabetes- suggests that first trimester screening of these conditions allow efficient interventions. This course covers all the relevant aspects of first-trimester screening for chromosomal abnormalities, the diagnosis of major fetal defects and screening for preeclampsia, prematurity and macrosomia/diabetes.
This course aims at providing competence to integrate in clinical practice first trimester and combined screening for fetal aneuploidy, including as well extensive discussion on non-invasive prenatal testing. Live demonstration sessions will allow attendees becoming familiar with early comprehensive anomaly scan, early echocardiography and ultrasound marker evaluation (early genetic sonogram). We will combine theoretical content with continuous self-evaluation and live demonstrations of invasive techniques –amniocentesis and transcervical chorionic villus sampling- to provide theoretical background for these procedures. The current indications for molecular karyotyping by array-CGH studies, including pros and cons, will be comprehensively discussed. Finally, we will dedicate a whole session to discuss to the state of the art in first trimester preventive strategies for the main obstetrical syndromes.

Faculty


The faculty is essentially composed of medical staff from the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Department of Hospital Clínic de Barcelona. Each session will be introduced, guided and closed by a coordinator with broad clinical and educational experience in the addressed topic. Overall, we have 10 specialists as lecturers..
