Revision 5 for 'Amniotic bands'All Revisions
Amniotic bands refer to free floating blind ending amnion with an intact chorionic membrane. In certain situations they lead to the amniotic band syndrome. They should not be confused with amniotic shelves which refer to the presence of amnion folding around pre-existing uterine adhesions. Some advocate fetoscopic release of amniotic bands in selected cases 1-3.
