Summary

Neural tube defects are one of the most complex birth defects and require an understanding of the interactions of multiple systems: the central nervous, urological, and musculoskeletal systems. Therefore, a truly multidisciplinary team of specialists is required to provide comprehensive treatment.

Neural Tube Defects enables practitioners in all the relevant disciplines to gain understanding of how the pertinent elements of each system relevant to these afflictions relate to the other systems. The book focuses on quality-of-life issues and extensively surveys the medical, educational, social, and psychological needs of patients with neural tube defects. It studies best practices in the diagnosis, management, prevention, and screening of NTDs and details useful medical treatments and therapies that may reduce the impact of spina bifida on childhood and adolescent development. It also discusses psychological functioning in children and adolescents with spina bifida.
