Question: Is trisomy 13 treatable?

There is no cure for trisomy 13, and treatments focus on your babys symptoms. These can include surgery and therapy. Although, depending on the severity of your babys issues, some doctors may choose to wait and consider any measures based on the chances of your babys survival.

Can babies with trisomy 13 survive?

Median survival time for patients with trisomy 13 is between 7 and 10 days and it is reported that between 86% and 91% of live-born patients with Patau syndrome do not survive beyond 1 year of life. Survival beyond the first year has been associated with mosaicism.
