What is Spina Bifida?

Spina Bifida (SB) is a relatively common birth defect which appears in 1-2 per 1000 live births worldwide. In the United States alone, there are 0.7 cases of spina bifida per 1000 live births. Spina bifida is a neural tube defect that happens during the development of the fetus while in utero. The bones of the spine in a fetus with SB do not close around the spinal cord as they should and remain unfused. Normally the neural tube closes at 3-4 weeks after conception, so this is an early neural tube defect.
