Three types of fetal intervention exist: (1) open midgestational, hysterotomy-based surgery between 18 and 26 weeks of gestation involving exteriorization of the affected fetal body part; (2) ex utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT) procedures, also called operations on placental support (OOPS), performed on term or near-term fetuses before umbilical cord clamping; and (3) minimally invasive fetal procedures performed throughout gestation.
