I’m doing my project on Spina Bifida. Each year, about 1,500 babies are born with spina bifida. Hispanic women have the highest rate of having a child affected by spina bifida compared with Non-Hispanic White and Non-Hispanic Black women: Hispanic: 4.17 per 10,000Non-Hispanic Black or African-American: 2.64 per10,000 Non-Hispanic White: 3.22 per 10,000 Spina bifida may be a birth defect most kids who have spina bifida don’t have issues from it. It happens when the bones of the spine (vertebrae) don’t type properly around a part of the baby’s spinal wire. It will have an effect on how the skin on the rear appearance. And in severe cases, it will create walking or daily activities.

Prenatal detection will undoubtedly become more refined, and may well continue to reduce the incidence of meningomyelocele. Another possible advancement that is often discussed concerns intrauterine surgery (surgery on the fetus while still in the womb) to close a meningomyelocele prior to birth. Experimental work has clearly demonstrated that the exposed neural elements are vulnerable to damage from contact with amniotic fluid. There may in fact be progressive loss of lower extremity function during the latter part of gestation. Since this is the case, it would seem reasonable to close the back as early as possible.
