They affect approximately one in 1000 births globally, and constitute an important challenge in terms of mortality, morbidity, social and financial costs. Studies indicate that approximately two thirds, but not all, cases of NTDs are preventable. The burden of disease associated NTDs is higher in Ireland than in other countries.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Irish Medical Organisation||Keywords:||Neural tube defects||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
