Intrauterine Transfusion

Pregnancy sometimes can lead to complications in the little one. At Dr. Aggarwal’s Wellness Multispecialty Hospital, mother and child are in safe hands. Our gynaecologist leverages their experience to take care of foetus with the help of the latest medical technologies. Intrauterine transfusion is one such procedure where blood is supplied to the anaemic baby through the umbilical cord.


Benefits of intrauterine transfusion:

  • Fetal anaemia is a rare but severe condition. IUT replaces fetal red blood cells and prevent anaemia.

  • IUT is treatment of choice when red blood cells of RH positive foetus are destroyed by RH-sensitise mother's immune system.

  • The treatment prevents fetal anaemia due to haemolytic disease of the foetus and newborn or parvo-virus infection by replacing red blood cells.

  • It also provides platelets in neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia.

Step by step approach:

At Dr. Aggarwal’s Wellness Multispecialty Hospital, our experienced gynaecologist performs fetal transfusion up to 35 weeks of gestation, with delivery anticipated at 37 to 38 weeks.

The procedure is safe and with use of ultrasound the position of the foetus and placenta is determined.

The surgeon inserts a needle from mothers’ abdomen to the umbilical cord vein of foetus or foetus abdomen.

For transfusion the fetal blood type is matched with compatible blood group and blood is passed through the needle.

The procedure is important to keep the baby healthy until maturation in the womb. It promotes safe term pregnancy.
