Kourtney Kardashian is an American media personality and socialite.
She was born on April 18, 1979, in Los Angeles, California, to Robert Kardashian and Kris.
Kourtney has two younger sisters, Kim and Khloé, and a younger brother, Rob.
In 2007, she and her family began starring in the reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which led to the creation of spin-offs including Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami and Kourtney and Kim Take New York:
Kourtney has three children and was previously in a long-term relationship with Scott Disick.
She married Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker in May 2022.
She and Travis are still “figuring out” how to blend their families in a way that ensures that their children are comfortable, so they don’t live together yet.
Kourtney has also been open about her struggles with infertility and IVF treatments.
In addition, she made headlines for wearing a Dolce & Gabbana mini-dress to her wedding to Travis, despite the brand’s controversial past.
Kourtney Kardashian emergency surgery
Urgent fetal surgery is a medical procedure performed on a developing fetus in the womb to correct a life-threatening condition or prevent further damage.
This type of surgery is typically performed in cases where the fetus has been diagnosed with a serious medical condition that requires immediate attention to ensure the best possible outcome for the baby.
Urgent fetal surgery is a complex and delicate procedure that requires a highly skilled team of medical professionals, including obstetricians, fetal surgeons, anesthesiologists and neonatologists.
The procedure is typically performed between 18 and 26 weeks of gestation, when the fetus is large enough to be operated on but still small enough to minimize the risk of complications.
There are several conditions that may require urgent fetal surgery, including congenital diaphragmatic hernia, twin-twin transfusion syndrome and spina bifida.
In each of these cases, the surgery is performed to correct a specific problem or prevent further damage to the developing fetus.
During the procedure, the mother is given anesthesia to ensure that she is comfortable and the fetus is monitored closely to ensure that it remains stable throughout the surgery.
The fetal surgeon then makes a small incision in the mother’s abdomen and uterus to access the fetus.
The surgery is typically performed using minimally invasive techniques, such as fetoscopy or endoscopy, to minimize the risk of complications.
After the surgery, the mother is closely monitored to ensure that she is recovering well and that the fetus is stable.
In some cases, the baby may need to be delivered prematurely to ensure that it receives the best possible care.
The neonatal team will then provide specialized care to the baby to ensure that it continues to thrive and develop.
