In order to improve the minimal access fetal surgery technique the following requirements should be met: existing pediatric and obstetric endoscopic techniques need to be modified, novel fetoscopic instruments should be developed, and also it is necessary to use a multidisciplinary team approach. Several obstacles were met during the development of the technique. The issue of poor visualization in turbid amniotic fluid is one of them was solved via pump driven fluid exchanger, which replaces amniotic fluid with saline in the course of operating, and that exchanged fluid is kept at physiological temperature in order to eliminate fetal hypothermia with fluid exchange. Also lack of fetal monitoring was resolved by inventing the ultrasonographic monitoring and lack of fetal analgesia was set via intramuscular fetal needle puncture with an analgesic. Mobile fetus was fixed by fetal suture fixation techniques and ultrasound directed trocar entry with the knowledge of fetal position.
