Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Pregnancy complications are a very serious medical problem, strongly related to prematurity and the undesirable effects of pregnancy. In modern perinatology, diagnostic tools exist that make it possible to identify risks to the mother and the fetus.

In this Special Issue, we aim to highlight the role of early and late pregnancy diagnosis programs and screening for aneuploidy, congenital heart disease and other fetal anomalies. The effective development of modern prenatal diagnostics, based primarily on the use of ultrasound, significantly reduces perinatal mortality in newborns, but as well as maternal mortality, such as Preeclampsia. Our goal in this Special Issue is to present new information on the early diagnosis of severe complications of pregnancy, which will improve treatment outcomes of these patients and their newborns.
