Extractions: Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus The term 'genetic counselling' means different things to different people. Some place emphasis on the counselling and supportive aspects and see it as an opportunity to talk over problems connected with having healthy children or passing on hereditary conditions. Others see it more in terms of obtaining factual information about genetics, particularly the risks involved and tests available. Perhaps the best approach is a combination of both these aspects, when not only is information exchanged but support and help can be offered in making what can often be difficult decisions. People who have had a pregnancy terminated or have had a baby with an abnormality should have the opportunity of genetic counselling. Questions such as 'why me?', 'is the problem genetic?', 'could it happen again?', and 'are there any tests available during a future pregnancy?' are all points which can be discussed with a genetic counsellor. The aim of genetic counselling is not to make decisions for people but to enable them to have the necessary understanding of the situation so that they can decide for themselves.

Extractions: A chance for a better life Each year in this country, 4,000 children, or an average of 11 children a day, are born with neural tube defects (NTDs) that occur when the spinal column fails to develop and close properly during the first month of pregnancy. The neural tube in a developing fetus later becomes the spinal cord, the backbone that protects the spinal cord, and all the nerves in the body, and any defect in the neural tube can lead to serious health consequences. Spina bifida accounts for half of all neural tube defects, and occurs when part of the spinal cord protrudes through the backbone and fails to develop normally. Thanks to improved medical and surgical care, most children born with spina bifida survive, although they may experience varying degrees of paralysis, loss of sensation in the lower limbs, difficulties with bowel and bladder management, hydrocephalus, learning disabilities, and latex allergies. Anencephaly, which accounts for the remaining 50 percent of neural tube defects, results from the failure of the neural tube to close properly at the upper end, causing a fatal condition in which most of the brain is absent. Infants born with anencephaly usually die at birth or within the first days after birth.

Extractions: NEURAL TUBE DEFECTS TYPES Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus SPINA BIFIDA The brain and the spinal tube develop very early in pregnancy from the neural tube. Spina Bifida comes from development of the neural tube. Spina Bifida is a fault in the spinal cord that causes an opening in the backbone. Almost all children with spina bifida will develop extra spinal fluid in the brain. This process is labeled as hydrocephalus. HYDROCEPHALUS Hydrocephalus occurs when a watery fluid, or cerebro-spinal fluid, is not absorbed into the bloodstream but produced inside the ventricles of the brain. If the fluid accumulates within the brain and the ventricles begin to swell, the head will eventually enlarge, resulting in compression of surrounding tissue. SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS Spina Bifida Failure of neural tube to develop properly. This can be either genetic, environmental, or both. Hydrocephalus Inability of cerebro-spinal fluid to drain into the bloodstream TREATMENTS Recent research has shown that with a regular intake of vitamins and a healthy diet, the risk of developing neural tube defects has decreased. Women who are pregnant are encouraged to eat vegetables and other foods that contain folic acid. This folic acid, or vitamin B9, reduces the risk of recurrence in a second pregnancy. If you feel you are not getting enough of this vitamin in your diet, a daily folic acid supplement may also be taken. Always check with your physician first.

Extractions: Research carried out in Ireland with the help of members of IASBAH has recently identified the first genetic risk factor for Spina Bifida. A common variant in the gene which determines the folate-related enzyme, methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase, is more common in Irish people with Spina Bifida than in the general population. This important research breakthrough gives added impetus to the search for other genetically determined risk factors for NTDs. Recommendations for Prevention of NTDs To help prevent occurrence of NTDs Women of childbearing age should take a daily supplement (tablet) containing 400 micrograms of folic acid , from at least four weeks before conception until the end of the 12th week of pregnancy.
