Systematic review of accuracy of ultrasound in the diagnosis of vasa previa. Ultras Obstet Gynecol.
La vasa previa se define como la presencia de vasos sanguineos fetales o placentarios que discurren por las membranas ovulares en una porcion baja del segmento uterino, cubriendo el orificio cervical interno y anterior a la presentacion fetal (1).
Dada la baja frecuencia de la vasa previa, los retos diagnosticos que representa para el ginecologo y la importancia de tenerla en cuenta dentro del diagnostico del sangrado del segundo y tercer trimestres, se presenta este caso con el objetivo de hacer una revision de la literatura publicada respecto a la exactitud del ultrasonido para su diagnostico, asi como tambien revisar la patogenesis y el pronostico de esta patologia.
Es diagnosticada como vasa previa tipo II y se recomendo control prenatal por alto riesgo obstetrico y seguimiento ecografico, los controles prenatales se consideraron normales, pero no se realizaron mas controles ecograficos hasta el ingreso por urgencias al HMUA con 36 semanas de gestacion, sangrado vaginal severo, indoloro, sin aumento en el tono uterino y con disminucion de los movimientos fetales.
A partir de las preguntas sobre la patogenesis de la vasa previa, la exactitud de la ecografia doppler utilizada para el diagnostico y el pronostico perinatal de los fetos afectados con vasa previa se hizo una busqueda en la base de datos Medline via PubMed con los terminos: "vasa previa", "ultrasonography" y "prognosis" para articulos con estudios publicados entre 1993 y 2013 en ingles y espanol, se incluyeron articulos de revision de tema, revisiones sistematicas y reporte de casos.
Other abnormalities that may be seen are vasa previa, retained succenturiate lobe, PPH and APH.
