Intrauterine Fetal Blood Transfusion

Intrauterine Fetal Blood Transfusion: A Lifesaving Intervention

Intrauterine fetal blood transfusion is a specialized medical procedure performed during pregnancy to treat severe fetal anemia. Fetal anemia can occur due to conditions such as Rh isoimmunization, parvovirus B19 infection, or other blood disorders, and can lead to serious complications if left untreated. During the procedure, blood is transfused directly into the fetal circulation to restore normal blood cell levels and improve fetal well-being.

When is Intrauterine Fetal Blood Transfusion Recommended?

This procedure may be recommended when fetal anemia is diagnosed through prenatal screening tests, ultrasound findings, or other diagnostic methods. It is typically performed in cases where the fetus is at risk of severe complications or death due to inadequate oxygen delivery to vital organs caused by anemia.

The Procedure Process:

Intrauterine fetal blood transfusion is performed under ultrasound guidance to ensure accuracy and safety. A needle is inserted through the mother’s abdomen and uterus into the fetal umbilical vein, and compatible blood is transfused into the fetal circulation. The procedure requires specialized training and expertise to minimize risks and ensure successful outcomes.
