Hypoplasia of the nasal bones of the fetus
In recent years, medicine has advanced far ahead. If another ten years ago for the entire pregnancy, women were given only a few tests and 1-2 times they underwent ultrasound, but now future mothers are under constant close supervision of doctors and are subjected to thorough examinations.
And, of course, this is not the vagaries of doctors, but an urgent necessity, because modern diagnostic methods can detect various abnormalities and malformations in the fetus already in the early stages of pregnancy.
The length of the nasal bones of the fetus is one of the most important indices of its formation, and it can be determined during the ultrasonic examination. So if the doctor has appointed you this procedure – do not refuse.
Harm from ultrasound in pregnancy is nothing more than a myth, but there can be a lot of benefits from this examination.
Nasal bones – this quadrangular elongated bones, which are visible already at 10-11 weeks of pregnancy. If the length of the nasal bone in the fetus is less than it should be at this time of pregnancy, then in this case they speak of hypoplasia of the nasal bone.
