Spina bifida advice and information

Spina Bifida is a developing birth defect of the neural tube, partial closure of this tube results in an incompletely formed spinal cord. This causes the bones of the spine to overly open so that a portion of the spinal cord does not fully form and remain unfused. There may be a fluid filled sac surrounding the open spinal cord.

The spina bifida malformations fall into three categories: spina bifida occulta, spina bifida cystica (myelomeningocele), and meningocele. The most common location of the malformations is the lumbar and sacral areas of the spinal cord. Find symptoms, causes, diagnosis and treatment information sites listed in this section.
