BOTTO, Hugo A. et al. Ex utero intrapartum treatment - Management of neonatal congenital high airway obstruction syndrome: Case report. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2010, vol.108, n.4, pp.e92-e95. ISSN 0325-0075.

In recent years, the ex utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT), that involves extrauterine fetal intubation prior to delivery, has become relevant for the reduction in morbidity and mortality of neonates affected by congenital high airway obstruction syndrome (CHAOS). Clinical case. We report the case of the mother of an unborn child at pregnancy week 22, who was diagnosed a congenital pulmonary malformation that precluded intrapartum fetal circulatory deficit and resulted in the conduction of an EXIT technique, with the aim of ensuring fetal blood gas exchange at the time of delivery. Conclusions. A timely practice of the EXIT technique resulted, by monitoring both maternal and fetal factors that might affect fetoplacental circulation, in the birth of a child whose immediate and long-term outcomes were successful allowing the child live a normal life.

Keywords : Ex utero intrapartum treatment; EXIT; Congenital high airway obstruction; CHAOS.
