A disease that can have a solution if detected early.
The 40-year-old Venezuelan Paola decided to have her second child and for this she asked for the support of a doctor who specializes in high-risk pregnancies. At 11 weeks of gestation, she went with her family to have her first ultrasound and her nose was not seen, two weeks later they returned to confirm what was happening … Her baby was suffering mutilations in the uterus caused by ruptures in the amniotic sac , that when they occur early, the flanges cause a spontaneous abortion, but when the embryo survives, the cords become entangled, and as the baby grows, its face, arms, feet, fingers, legs, etc. are damaged. Just as Paola could see when she had an ultrasound in 3D how she was mutilating herself without being able to do anything, abortion is already prohibited under Chilean law, she could only wait until she died, which inevitably happened.

The syndrome Amniotic Brisas is a set of defects that occur when parts of the developing fetus is “entangled” in amniotic bands fibrous inside the uterus with the movements of the fetus which restrict blood flow and affect their development, that can cause deformities at birth.
In this regard, the National Organization for Rare Diseases in the United States of America, points out that one in every 15,000 are the rarest cases.
These can vary, ranging from the deformity of a single finger to the total disappearance of some limb, these can be:
1. When the band remains around a limb or a finger or toe.
2. Defect of the abdomen or chest wall (if the fibrous band is located in that area).
3. An abnormal fissure in the face (if it crosses the face it will be a cleft).
4. Absence of all or part of an arm or a leg (congenital amputation)
Type of treatments
When it is already certain that this syndrome is suffered, the next mother should undergo a fetoscopy (an operation that is performed on the fetus before birth, inside the mother’s body) in order to destroy the fibrous bands and release damaged fetal parts.
Once the baby is born, a general assessment should be made to determine which parts are damaged and how it can be healed. In case it is more serious (absence of legs, arms, skull, etc.) the situation will have to be analyzed to see if it is necessary to resort to a prosthesis or transplant.
The reasons for this syndrome are still unknown, however ultrasound studies are recommended in the first semester in women who underwent a uterine procedure of any kind. Timely prenatal diagnosis and together with this fetal surgery can help to find an adequate solution.
The illusion of having a child is wonderful, but as everything requires a lot of care and more when trying to create life to a human being, so take your precautions and prepare for that great event by looking at your physical health, eating well and going to the doctor every time I tell you so you can live this magical stage.
