Devascularization and staged resection of giant sacrococcygeal teratoma in the premature infant

J Pediatr Surg. 1995 Feb;30(2):309-11. doi: 10.1016/0022-3468(95)90579-0.

Abstract

Sacrococcygeal teratoma identified in utero is associated with 50% fetal demise, which is caused by hyperdynamic cardiac failure, hemorrhage, and polyhydramnios-induced preterm labor. A premature infant (26 weeks' gestation) with prenatally diagnosed sacrococcygeal teratoma was managed successfully with initial devascularization to control the hyperdynamic state, followed by staged resection.
