THE ROLE OF PRENATAL MONITORING FOR THE DETECTION OF FETAL MALFORMATIONS
Keywords:Prenatal care, access to health care, congenital malformation, instrumental screening
Currently, congenital malformations and hereditary diseases are considered to be an important health problem. Timely and full implementation of modern ultrasound screenings allows to diagnose the main part of defects during pregnancy. This scientific article presents the statistical analysis of a number of important demographic indicators, the prevalence and proportional characteristics of birth defects, the problems of prenatal control of pregnant women and the strategic approaches aimed at improving these problems.
