Typically, if a fetus is having problems with svt, a fetal cardiac ultrasound will detect that the heart function is declining and there may be evidence for abnormal fluid collections (so called non-immune hydrops). ...Read more

Can preterm IVH have long-tern effects on mental health?Had grade 4 IVH as infant, no apparent neurological damage but severe anxiety.Related?

Maybe. Maybe not.: Severe intraventricular hemorrhage usually means many brain cells died off... and would affect everything in the life of that person from that point onward, for better or for worse, but we hope for better rather than for worse. The question is, whether one's anxiety level would have been worse, would have been better, or would have been the same, without the IVH. Nobody can tell with certainty. ...Read more
