Spina Bifida is a congenital developmental disorder characterized by the incomplete closure of the neural tube – also known as a neural tube defect (NTD) – which occurs when the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) does not form normally in the womb during the early stages of pregnancy. This leaves some vertebrae of the spinal open, and occasionally there is also a fluid-filled sac on the spinal cord. Often, those affected by this condition have limited ability to walk and many are in wheelchairs. To learn more, please see our article at www.180medical.com/Spina-Bifida.
