09/01/2005 - "In terms of anomalies of the abdominal wall and abdomen, the incidence of association with chromosome abnormalities was 9.5% in cases of omphalocele, 11.8% in cases of duodenal atresia and 5.7% in cases of echogenic bowel. "
10/17/2004 - "In terms of anomalies of the abdominal wall and the abdomen; the incidence rate of association with chromosome abnormalities was 9.5% in cases with omphalocele, 11.8% in cases with duodenal atresia, and 5.7% in cases with echogenic bowel. "
01/01/1997 - "ULTRASOUND MARKERS AT 15-22 WEEKS OF PREGNANCY: There are a number of ultrasound markers of Down's syndrome at 15-22 weeks, including nuchal fold thickness, cardiac abnormalities, duodenal atresia, femur length, humerus length, pyelectasis, and hyperechogenic bowel. "
02/01/2003 - "The categories were in descending order: (I) combined central nervous system (CNS)/cranial shape and cardiac anomalies (excluding spina bifida and anencephaly); (II) key anomaly present (exomphalos/ intrauterine growth restriction/duodenal atresia/cystic hygroma/fetal hydrops/talipes--with other multiple anomalies); (III) CNS +/- other abnormality (excluding choroid plexus cyst, spina bifida, anencephaly); (IVa) increased nuchal translucency--first trimester +/- other abnormality; (IVb) increased nuchal thickening--second trimester +/- other abnormality; (V) cardiac anomaly +/- other abnormality; (VI) other markers of aneuploidy (pyelectasis/two vessel cord/echogenic bowel/short femur); and (VII) other (mostly isolated) malformations.
