Les pratiques des échographistes concernant la recherche et l’annonce du sexe fœtal aux échographies de dépistage

Abstract : Objectives The absence of recommendations on the research of the aspect of the EGO as well as on the announcement of the fetal sex, leaves the sonographers alone in front of the strong request for disclosure by the couples. In this context, the objective of this study was to determine whether sonographers systematically added the search for the appearance of EGO to their items for screening ultrasound and to know their practices concerning the term of announcement of the fetal sex, if the patient requested it. Methods This is a descriptive study carried out in four departments of Ile de France over a period of 24 weeks. In order to answer our problematic, a questionnaire was sent by e-mail to 294 ultrasound specialists allowing us to take stock of their professional practices. Results A total of 103 sonographers were included in this study. When the patient did not ask for fetal sex, all sonographers included the search for the appearance of the EGO. They were 99.0% to include this item during the second ultrasound. Concerning the announcement of the fetal sex, if the patient requests it, 66.0% of the sonographers agree to look for it and announce it during the first trimester screening ultrasound. During the second ultrasound, all the practitioners in our study agreed to reveal the fetal sex. Conclusion Thus, although the search for the appearance of EGO is not a mandatory item in screening ultrasound reports, it is systematically sought by sonographers as an additional marker of normality. Concerning the announcement of the fetal sex, more than six sonographers out of ten accept to answer the request of the patients as of the ultrasound of the first trimester while informing the couples on the risks of error of determination of this one.
