A 38 year old woman from Kamothe,Panvel,came to me with Ultrasound report showing a malformed fetus of 16 weeks duration.
She already had a 11 years old son by Caesarean section.
She delayed her second child bearing to gain financial stability.
The incident was unfortunate one,but she had to be posted for second trimester termination which is like a mini labour.
Expulsion of fetus was uneventful.
Later a DNC was also performed to clean out remaining bits of placenta.
In such cases the major challenge that a Gynaecologist faces is that of retained products of placenta.
See, despite the fact that the fetus is abnormal, the placenta holds on.
It is not yet ready to be detached.
As the plane of separation is yet not formed.
Even though the Gynaecologist will use instrument to do curettage,still some bits & pieces may remain.
They may give rise to irregular bleeding later on.
This may require DNC again.
The procedure then needs to be carried out under Ultrasound guidance.
These are some pointers to remember
