(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-11-23)
Background: Prenatal diagnostics ultrasound was established in Russia in 2000 as a routine method of screening for birth defects.

Prevalence of birth defects in an Arctic Russian setting from 1973 to 2011: a register-based study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-01-10)
Background Birth defects (BD) constitute an important public health issue as they are the main cause of infant death. Their prevalence in Europe for 2008–2012 was 25.6 per 1000 newborns. To date, there are no population-based studies for the Russian Federation. The aim of the present study is to estimate the prevalence of BD, its forms, and changes over time in the Russian Arctic city of Monchegorsk ...
