Abstract


Capabilities and perspectives of the prenatal neurosurgery in hydrocephalus and myelomeningocele are presented, which were based on experimental and clinical studies. Reasons of the decreasing of interest for surgical treatment of hydrocephalus and «revolution» in the field of surgical treatment of fetus myelomeningocele are analyzed. Requirements to medical centers that are planing the introduction of technologies of surgical treatment of myelomeningocele are presented. Prospects of introducing of the technology in fetal neurosurgery in St. Petersburg are analyzed.
