More than 30 well-known domestic and overseas experts were invited to participate in the summit and give lectures, with themes focusing on fetal intrauterine treatment, intrauterine treatment of fetal congenital heart disease, abnormal development of the digestive tract of the fetus, abnormal development of the liver and gallbladder of the fetus, and prenatal diagnosis and intrauterine infection.

During the three-day summit, Qi shared his experience on regional fetal medicine center construction requirements and specifications.

At the end of the summit, Professor Chen gave a speech on the latest development in fetal surgery. He also introduced CQHCWC's progress in establishing the prenatal, intrapartum and postpartum integrated diagnosis and treatment model, which aims to help women with fetuses showing abnormal development.

The summit was considered to be highly targeted and instructive. Experts not only shared the development of fetal intrauterine treatment technology and cutting-edge information and the latest achievements in fetal medicine, but also had in-depth discussions on different types of fetal developmental abnormalities, according to attendees.

Compared with previous sessions, a practical training class of "fetus intrauterine treatment workshop" was specially offered this year, with experts teaching intrauterine treatment skills on the spot.

Also, a number of babies who were born at the center and who once received intrauterine treatment were brought back there by their parents during the event.
