Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The practice of Maternal Fetal Medicine deals with a dyad of patients and requires a broad range of specific expertise in order to recompose such dichotomy. Mother and fetus, through their placental connection, present such deep interrelationships that abnormalities on one side have the potential to determine clinically relevant consequences on the other. Gestational or pre-gestational anomalies in the mother may determine risk of dysfunctional placentation, abnormal fetal growth or prematurity, up to perinatal demise. On the other hand, fetal abnormalities may affect maternal well-being and organ function. Extensive evaluation of the two patients in object requires multidisciplinary assessment with expert in maternal or fetal medicine sharing their knowledge for the benefits of mothers and their unborn babies.

The aim of this Special Issue of Clinical and Experimental Obstetrics & Gynecology is to explore the interrelationship of this two components welcoming both recent advances and developments in the field of fetal and maternal medicine, including early diagnosis of fetal abnormalities, screening and diagnosis for chromosomal defects and genetic syndromes, intrauterine fetal surgery, prediction and prevention of preeclampsia, preterm birth, stillbirth, prediction and management of abnormal fetal growth, obstetric problems of multiple pregnancies, and medically assisted reproduction, fetal and maternal diseases in pregnancies (both gestational and pre-gestational). Submissions of original unpublished studies are welcome, including observational and interventional studies as well as RCTs and reviews, with an emphasis on relevant clinical questions and quantitative syntheses (meta-analyses) of pooled data. Authors are welcome to contact the Editorial Team in advance if they require any assistance for the preparation of their manuscript.
