Uncommon finding: This is found in 1/2 to 1 % of newborns & 2/3 have no additional issues of any importance. In some additional anomalies are found & should be obvious to the examining physicians. Some anomalies require special studies for detection like those of the kidneys. ...Read more
No known association: Over three decades I have never seen any association between the two. I have had an infant with 5 wraps around the neck & no hiccups & hundreds with no wrap & hiccups. Just because the two may appear together on occasion does not mean the one issue was a signal of the other. ...Read more
Some people do: Once the cord stump dries up and falls off, it's harmless and some people do keep it for a memento. What to keep in a baby box or album is a very personal decision, and also varies with culture. But dried cord stump poses no risk of carrying infections or anything bad. Also, the dried cord stump has no potential future medical use (banking cord blood is totally different process). ...Read more
1 weeks: The umbilical cord usually falls off in the first 7-10 days. May take up to two weeks. If you were told to clean with alcohol, then do so once a day. Cleaning every diaper change with alcohol keeps it too clean and delays falling off.Once it falls off it will stink for a week or so. Then you can clean every change with alcohol. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Infants usually do not react adversely to mismatched blood immediately. How did the infant get this mismatched cord blood? In some countries where there is no immediate source of blood, there is something called 'walking donor'-which has saved many a life. While I am not concerned, the blood bank can tell you prior to the next transfusion if there are any antibodies produced from such a case. ...Read more

My baby died in womb at 40 weeks + 4 days. No umbrical cord wrapping or placenta seperation. Does cephalo pelvic disproportion cause death. ?
Sorry for your loss: Tragically, many fetal deaths after 40 weeks remain unexplained. Cpd means that the baby gets "stuck" after a very prolonged labor. If your baby died before labor started, then it wasn't cpd. If you decide to have another child, give yourself enough time to grieve and heal, and then work closely with a perinatologist (high risk OB specialist) who can do extra specialized testing and monitor well. ...Read more
Had 20 week ultrasound. Midwife reported umbilical cord attached to the membrane of placenta. Is this serious?
Depends on situation: Since the umbilical stump is composed of arteries & a vein that fed baby during pregnancy, it acquired a significant size.As the cord stump dries & separates, there is often a bit of bleeding.Usually only enough to cover a few q-tips.Local care as you would a scratch is all that is needed unless the bleeding persists.Occasionally the pediatrician needs to cauterize a stubborn bleeder in the offic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
At 30 wks ultrasound there is a single loop of umbilical cord loosely entwining baby's neck..is there any risk?.what are the chances of stillbirth?
Chances low: It is not uncommon to have the cord around the neck before birth. It may become disentangled naturally. Sometimes during labor if the cord is around the neck the infant may have fetal distress that can be picked up by fetal monitoring during labor. I would not be too worried right now as long os the fetus shows signs of movement. Your OB doc can follow this during the pregnancy. ...Read more
Hubby small avm ruptured-caused diplopia. 3 neurosurgeons haven't linked infant spinal meningitis & plan radiosurgery . Should spinal tap been given?
Depends: Spinal cord injury is very complex and the ability to "fix" the problem depends on many things including how badly the nerves have been injured, the age of the patient, the mechanism of injury, etc. Unfortunately, the overall healing potential of the spinal cord is quite poor and many injuries result in permanent problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes : If the hernia is large enough to allow the abdominal organs to go in i the chest during development, they can physically prevent the lung from developing. In its most severe case, rapid death due to inability to get oxygen in to the system can occur immediately after delivery. It is important to understand however that this is not the case for all hernias. See a pediatric surgeon for your details. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
