  • A Study to Evaluate Minimally Invasive Fetoscopic Regenerative Repair of Spina Bifida Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate a new, minimally-invasive technique (fetoscopic repair) for repair of spina bifida (MMC) during the second trimester of pregnancy. Researchers are trying to determine if this less invasive surgical approach will have less risk to the mother and, at the same time, adequate closure of the fetal spina bifida defect.

  • Sleep-disordered Breathing in Infants With Myelomeningocele Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to determine whether the risk for sleep-disordered breathing in infants with myelomeningocele (a severe form of spina bifida) differs among those who underwent fetal vs. postnatal surgery, and to examine the link between sleep-disordered breathing and neurodevelopment.
