Spina Bifida Outcomes

Physicians affiliated with The Fetal Center were the first in Texas to perform open fetal surgery for the repair of myelomeningocele (MMC), the most severe form of spina bifida, in May 2011. This procedure followed the published results from the seven-year multicenter clinical trial, the Management of Myelomeningocele Study (MOMS), in March 2011. Overall, The Fetal Center’s outcomes data mirrors those reported in the MOMS trial, and the percentage of patients at The Fetal Center who delivered past 37 weeks is almost double that of the MOMS trial.
