Introduction

Congenital anomalies complicating pregnancy refer to structural or functional abnormalities present in a developing fetus during pregnancy. These anomalies can have significant implications for both the mother and the baby. The aim of this guide is to provide healthcare professionals with a comprehensive overview of the diagnosis and management of congenital anomalies complicating pregnancy.

Codes

– ICPC-2 Code: W76 Congenital anomaly complicating pregnancy
– ICD-10 Code: O35.9 Maternal care for (suspected) fetal abnormality and damage, unspecified

Symptoms

  • Abnormal ultrasound findings: The presence of structural abnormalities in the fetus detected during routine ultrasound examinations.
  • Maternal symptoms: In some cases, the mother may experience symptoms such as decreased fetal movement, vaginal bleeding, or abdominal pain.

Causes

  • Genetic factors: Congenital anomalies can be caused by genetic mutations or chromosomal abnormalities inherited from one or both parents.
  • Environmental factors: Exposure to certain medications, chemicals, or infections during pregnancy can increase the risk of congenital anomalies.
  • Maternal health conditions: Pre-existing maternal health conditions such as diabetes or obesity can increase the risk of congenital anomalies in the fetus.

Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Obtain a detailed medical history from the mother, including any previous pregnancies, family history of congenital anomalies, and exposure to potential teratogens during pregnancy.
  • Assess the mother’s overall health and any pre-existing medical conditions that may contribute to the development of congenital anomalies.

Physical Examination

  • Perform a thorough physical examination of the mother, focusing on any signs or symptoms that may indicate the presence of a congenital anomaly.
  • Assess the mother’s vital signs and general appearance to evaluate her overall health and well-being.

Laboratory Tests

  • Genetic testing: Offer genetic testing to the mother and/or father to identify any genetic mutations or chromosomal abnormalities that may be contributing to the development of the congenital anomaly.
  • Blood tests: Perform routine blood tests to assess the mother’s overall health and screen for any underlying medical conditions that may be associated with congenital anomalies.
  • Infectious disease screening: Test the mother for any infectious diseases that may increase the risk of congenital anomalies, such as rubella or toxoplasmosis.

Diagnostic Imaging

  • Ultrasound: Perform a detailed ultrasound examination to visualize the fetus and identify any structural abnormalities.
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): In some cases, an MRI may be recommended to provide additional information about the fetal anatomy and aid in the diagnosis of congenital anomalies.

Other Tests

  • Amniocentesis: Offer amniocentesis to the mother to obtain a sample of amniotic fluid for genetic testing and further evaluation of the fetus.
  • Fetal echocardiography: Perform a specialized ultrasound examination of the fetal heart to assess for any cardiac abnormalities.
  • Biopsy or genetic counseling: Offer genetic counseling to the parents to discuss the implications of the congenital anomaly and provide information about available treatment options.

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor the progress of the pregnancy and assess the well-being of both the mother and the fetus.
  • Provide comprehensive patient education to the mother and her family about the congenital anomaly, its implications, and available treatment options.
