From Fetal Life to Adulthood: Focus on Neural Tube Defects

Provided by Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health

About the course

A unique opportunity to hear about new and innovative forms of fetal surgery and to follow the path of a disease through the life of a patient.

The 2017 RCPCH Wales St David’s Day Conference will focus on neural tube defects (NTD), beginning from antenatal detection and counselling, and following the life span of a child with an NTD. Talk and lectures from leading experts will cover a wide range of topics around NTDs, including neonatal management, neurosurgical treatments, urological and orthopaedic interventions and long term issues. You’ll also have the chance to hear from a patient and carers who look after children with an NTD, with opportunities to ask questions in a final panel discussion.
