Cardiac blood flow studies in fetuses with homozygous alpha-thalassemia-1 at 12-13 weeks of gestation. (1/147)

OBJECTIVE: Fetuses affected by homozygous alpha-thalassemia-1 develop anemia as early as the first trimester. Our objective was to study hemodynamic indices in affected fetuses at 12-13 weeks of gestation to determine whether these would be useful in the prediction of anemia. DESIGN: Prospective observational study. SUBJECTS: Women referred before 14 weeks of gestation for the prenatal diagnosis of homozygous alpha-thalassemia-1. METHODS: Transabdominal and/or transvaginal Doppler sonography was performed to measure the flow velocities in the fetal ascending aorta and pulmonary artery at 12-13 weeks. The Doppler indices were compared between those that were subsequently confirmed to be affected by homozygous alpha-thalassemia-1 and those that were unaffected. RESULTS: Between June 1997 and April 1998, 60 eligible women were recruited. Doppler examination was successful in 58 fetuses. Of these, 22 were subsequently confirmed to be affected by homozygous alpha-thalassemia-1. The diagnosis was made by chorionic villus sampling and DNA analysis in two affected fetuses and by cordocentesis and hemoglobin evaluation in 20 affected fetuses. Hemoglobin concentrations could be measured in ten fetuses and these ranged from 4 to 8 g/dl. The affected fetuses had significantly higher peak velocities at the pulmonary valve and ascending aorta and a larger inner diameter of the pulmonary valve than that in unaffected fetuses. The total cardiac output was increased by one-third in affected fetuses and was mainly due to an increase of the right-side cardiac output. CONCLUSION: In the early stage of anemia, the fetus responds mainly by increasing its right-side cardiac output. However, there is extensive overlap of the values of cardiac output between the affected and the unaffected fetuses, precluding its use in the prediction of anemia.  (+info)

Women's knowledge, concerns and psychological reactions before undergoing an invasive procedure for prenatal karyotyping. (2/147)

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate women's reasons for having an invasive procedure, their knowledge, how information was obtained, their satisfaction with this information, their concerns about complications and psychological reactions and distress evoked by the procedure. METHODS: Ninety-four pregnant women undergoing early amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (CVS) at 10-13 weeks' gestation participated in a questionnaire study. The women could choose between early amniocentesis (n = 38) and CVS (n = 31), or to be randomized to either of them (n = 25). RESULTS: Apart from two items, no differences were found between the groups. Age was the main reason for testing, and anxiety was stated as a reason by 38.3%. The women knew more about methods for fetal karyotyping, what the tests can reveal and how they are performed, than about the risks and reliability of the tests. The main source of information had been doctors and midwives at the antenatal care center. For a majority of women (64.9%) the decision to have the test was made together with their partner. The women's concerns were focused on worry about fetal injury, miscarriage and waiting for the result. The test did not have a major psychological impact on the women in general, but a substantial minority reacted with anxiety and distress. CONCLUSIONS: Knowledge of factors important to women and their concerns is essential for professionals working with genetic counselling and performance of invasive procedures.  (+info)

Studies of the mechanism of amniotic sac puncture-induced limb abnormalities in mice. (3/147)

The principal advantage of chorionic villus sampling (cvs) over amniocentesis for the determination of the genetic constitution of the embryo is that it may be undertaken earlier in pregnancy. If carried out too early in pregnancy, it has the risk of inducing craniofacial and limb abnormalities, a condition termed the oromandibulofacial limb hypogenesis (OMFL) syndrome in genetically normal infants. It is believed that the defects observed have a vascular origin, possibly due to anoxia of tissues due to fetal blood loss or thrombus formation at the site of biopsy with distal embolization. We believe that this does not adequately explain the findings from the experimental animal literature involving amniotic sac puncture (ASP). Based on these experimental findings, we have hypothesised that (i) the defects observed following cvs may result from the consequences of oligohydramnios following the inadvertent puncturing of the amniotic sac during this procedure, and (ii) that cleft palate and the postural limb defects observed (e.g., clubfoot and clubhand) are secondary to embryonic/fetal compression. Our experimental studies shed new light on the mechanism of induction of the limb defects seen, but particularly syndactyly. Evidence of hypoperfusion of the peripheral part of the developing limb bud is observed, which interferes with apoptosis that occurs in the digital interzones, or induces an abnormal degree of cellular proliferation and/or tissue regeneration in these sites, possibly because of over-expression of critical genes involved in limb pattern specification. Cleft palate, tail abnormalities and abnormalities of sternal ossification are also observed in our model.  (+info)

The use of chorionic villus biopsy catheters for saline infusion sonohysterography. (4/147)

BACKGROUND: Saline infusion sonohysterography is one of the recent refinements of ultrasonography that has the ability to enhance imaging of the uterine cavity in a safe, inexpensive and expedient manner. The technique can be difficult in women with a stenotic cervical os. This report describes a single-pass technique using chorionic villus sampling (CVS) catheters for saline infusion sonohysterography. METHOD: Saline infusion sonohysterography requires the transcervical passage of a catheter, through which saline is infused. The subsequent distension of the uterine cavity enhances the ability to detect intrauterine pathology with ultrasonography. In women with cervical stenosis, a catheter can be used in place of the more conventional two-pass technique, which requires the use of a uterine sound or probe followed by a conventional catheter. EXPERIENCE: We have used CVS catheters in women with cervical stenosis on 12 occasions. All have been successful and without significant discomfort to the patient. CONCLUSION: The use of CVS catheters for saline infusion sonohysterography in women with cervical stenosis can alleviate the need to remove the cervical probe prior to introduction of the catheter.  (+info)

The impact of placental malaria on gestational age and birth weight. (5/147)

Maternal malaria is associated with reduced birth weight, which is thought to be effected through placental insufficiency, which leads to intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR). The impact of malaria on preterm delivery is unclear. The effects of placental malaria-related changes on birth weight and gestational age were studied in 1177 mothers (and their newborns) from Tanzania. Evidence of malaria infection was found in 75.5% of placental samples. Only massive mononuclear intervillous inflammatory infiltration (MMI) was associated with increased risk of low birth weight (odds ratio inverted question markOR, 4.0). Maternal parasitized red blood cells and perivillous fibrin deposition both were associated independently with increased risk of premature delivery (OR, 3.2; OR, 2.1, respectively). MMI is an important mechanism in the pathogenesis of IUGR in malaria-infected placentas. This study also shows that placental malaria causes prematurity even in high-transmission areas. The impact of maternal malaria on infant mortality may be greater than was thought previously.  (+info)

Prenatal diagnosis of beta-thalassaemia using fetal erythroblasts enriched from maternal blood by a novel gradient. (6/147)

We have assessed a new technique for the isolation of fetal erythroblasts from maternal blood for the non-invasive prenatal diagnosis of pregnancies at risk of beta-thalassaemia. This method relies on the separation of erythroblasts from maternal nucleated cells by a novel step gradient and high speed centrifugation. In four of the six cases examined, single erythroblasts were identified by immunohistochemistry for zeta (zeta) globin. These were individually micromanipulated and analysed by single cell polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and subsequent sequencing of the region of beta-globin locus where the mutations most common to the region of Puglia, Italy, are clustered. In each of the four instances where fetal erythroblasts were identified by antibody staining, the fetal beta-globin genotype was correctly determined. To date, this represents the largest series of non-invasive prenatal diagnoses performed for this haemoglobinopathy.  (+info)

Maternal uniparental heterodisomy of chromosome 14: chromosomal mechanism and clinical follow up. (7/147)

To our knowledge, 22 cases of chromosome 14 maternal uniparental disomy (UPD(14)mat) have been reported so far. The majority of cases were ascertained because of an abnormal phenotype associated with a Robertsonian translocation involving chromosome 14. We report here on a child with UPD(14)mat detected prenatally and resulting from trisomy rescue in a maternal meiosis I non-disjunction trisomic zygote. After four years of clinical follow up, in addition to intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR), only short stature and small hands and feet were observed. These clinical data as well as the ascertainment and mechanism of origin of UPD(14)mat were compared with those observed in previously reported cases. It appears that the clinical spectrum of UPD(14)mat is milder in our patient than in patients with UPD(14)mat resulting from other chromosomal mechanisms. In addition, a hypothesis based on abnormal imprinting is proposed to explain the variability of the UPD(14)mat.  (+info)

A 47,XXY fetus conceived after ICSI of spermatozoa from a patient with non-mosaic Klinefelter's syndrome: case report. (8/147)

The birth of 12 healthy infants to fathers with non-mosaic Klinefelter's syndrome has been reported so far. The spermatozoa for these pregnancies was obtained from frozen-thawed ejaculate in one pregnancy (twins) and from the testis in the remaining 10 infants. All of them had a normal karyotype. We describe a patient with non-mosaic Klinefelter's syndrome from whom a testicular biopsy was obtained and motile spermatozoa were collected. Of 16 oocytes that were injected, 14 fertilized and cleaved. Three embryos were transferred, resulting in a triplet pregnancy. Karyotype analysis from chorionic villous sampling revealed 46,XX, 46,XY and 46,XXY from the three fetuses. The affected 46,XXY fetus was reduced on the 14th gestational week. The pregnancy culminated with the birth of a healthy male and female, on the 36th gestational week, weighing 3600 and 2660 g respectively. This case report proves the presence of hyperploid spermatozoa in the seminiferous lumen, and strengthens the necessity of genetic diagnosis of the embryos or fetuses in such pregnancies to fathers with non-mosaic Klinefelter's syndrome.  (+info)

Chorionic villus sampling (CVS) is a prenatal test that involves taking a sample of tissue from the placenta, a structure in the uterus that provides blood and nutrients from the mother to the fetus, to test for chromosomal abnormalities and certain other genetic problems.. The chorionic villi are tiny projections of placental tissue that look like fingers and contain the same genetic material as the fetus. Testing may be available for other genetic defects and disorders depending on the family history and availability of lab testing at the time of the procedure.. CVS is usually performed between the 10th and 12th weeks of pregnancy. Unlike amniocentesis (another type of prenatal test), CVS does not provide information on neural tube defects, such as spina bifida. For this reason, women who undergo CVS also need a follow-up blood test between 16 to 18 weeks of their pregnancy to screen for neural tube defects.. There are two types of CVS procedures:. ...

The Aim of this audit was to ensure that our teaching hospital was continuing to provide good quality care for women who were screened and presented with increased nuchal translucency (NT) ,3.5 mm. We had initial difficulty identifying these women.. We identified 54 women with an NT greater than 3.5 mm. The NT mean ± SD was 5.5 ± 1.9. Of these 46/54 (85%) agreed to an invasive test. Two women were referred to the regional fetal medicine department. Therefore 44 women underwent invasive testing within our department. Mean gestation age was 13 weeks for chorionic villous sampling and 17 weeks for amniocentesis.. All 44 were performed using ultrasound guidance using a 19 or 20 G needle. There was one failed attempt in those undergoing CVS and one with amniocentesis. There were no miscarriages in these women undergoing invasive testing. Five women required anti D and all received it. None of those undergoing testing had a bloody tap or post procedure infection.. Twelve fetuses had abnormal ...
Noninvasive Method Detects Risk of Down Syndrome. Using a noninvasive test on maternal blood that deploys a novel biochemical assay and a new algorithm for analysis, scientists can detect, with a high degree of accuracy, the risk that a fetus has the chromosomal abnormalities that cause Down syndrome and a genetic disorder known as Edwards syndrome The new approach is more scalable than other recently developed genetic screening tests and has the potential to reduce unnecessary amniocentesis or CVS. Two studies evaluating this approach are available online in advance of publication in the April issue of the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.. Diagnosis of fetal chromosomal abnormalities, or aneuploidies, relies on invasive testing by chorionic villous sampling or amniocentesis in pregnancies identified as high-risk. Although accurate, the tests are expensive and carry a risk of miscarriage. A technique known as massively parallel shotgun sequencing (MPSS) that analyzes cell-free DNA ...

For decades, OB-GYNs have offered prenatal tests to expectant moms to uncover potential issues, including Down syndrome, before they give birth. However, some tests, such as amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling, carry health risks, including miscarriage.

By Nancy Valko. In her February 2018 article"Prenatal Testing and Denial of Care", Bridget Mora exposes another dark side of prenatal testing: refusal to treat. Ms. Mora is the community education and communications coordinator for Be Not Afraid, a nonprofit that supports parents experiencing a prenatal diagnosis and carrying to term.. While most people have heard of amniocentesis (using a needle to extract and analyze the fluid surrounding an unborn baby in the second trimester), many people are unaware of the screening blood tests that have now become virtually routine for all pregnant women.. The difference is that blood screening tests may indicate a probability or risk score that a baby has a chromosomal anomaly, but a definitive diagnosis can only be made through amniocentesis or CVS (Chorionic villus sampling) using a needle to take a sample of tissue from an unborn babys placenta for analysis in the first trimester. Tragically, some parents make a decision to abort based on just a blood ...
CASE 4 Normal Infant Development Jasmine and Richard had mixed emotions when the pregnancy test came back positive. Their previous pregnancy was not successful because of chromosomal abnormalities. This had been devastating for them both, and they planted a tree in the backyard in honor of that child not meant to be. A human karyotype consists of 22 pairs of autosomal chromosomes and one pair of allosomes for gender. Fetal development often ends prior to the first trimester of a pregnancy, primarily due to karyotype deficiencies such as an extra chromosome, XXY, or a missing chromosome, X only. They were relieved when the chorionic villi sampling (CVS) test in the first trimester was negative for chromosomal abnormalities. CVS is a common prenatal test performed in high-risk pregnancies; the physician extracts tissue from the placenta for fetal genetic testing.. Jasmine was careful with her diet, eating healthy foods and taking prenatal vitamins. She was very fit, and her physician supported her ...

An alternative to amniocentesis is a test called chorionic villus sampling (CVS). This is where a small sample of cells from the placenta (the organ that links the mothers blood supply with her unborn babys) is removed for testing.. Its usually carried out between the 11th and 14th weeks of pregnancy, although it can be performed later than this if necessary.. With CVS, the risk of miscarriage is similar to the risk of miscarriage for amniocentesis. However, as the test can be carried out earlier, youll have more time to consider the results..

Pregnant women are offered screening for Edwards syndrome between 10 and 14 weeks of pregnancy to assess the chances of their baby having the condition.. This screening test is known as the combined test, and it also screens for Downs syndrome and Pataus syndrome.. During the combined test you will have a blood test and a special ultrasound scan where the fluid at the back of the babys neck (nuchal translucency) is measured.. Read more about screening for Edwards syndrome at 10-14 weeks.. If the combined test shows that you have a higher risk of having a baby with Edwards syndrome, you will be offered a diagnostic test to find out for certain if your baby has the condition.. This involves analysing a sample of your babys cells to check if they have an extra copy of chromosome 18.. There are two different ways of getting this sample of cells - chorionic villus sampling, which collects a sample from the placenta, or amniocentesis, which collects a sample of the amniotic fluid from around ...
LONDON - Approximately 140 million babies are born annually, out of which nearly 5 million die in the 1st month of life, especially in developing countries. For instance, in India, 5-15% of sick newborns suffer from a metabolic disorder. This underlines the need for newborn screening, which could help to prevent disability and death by early intervention.. Today, the usage of ultrasound imaging and maternal serum maker screening for the detection of various birth defects form an integral part of prenatal care in the two first trimesters. However, still both these techniques have certain disadvantages of high false positive rates. If these tests show any possibility of increased risk of aneuploidy, then invasive approaches like chorionic villus sampling or amniocentesis are suggested for diagnosis.. In-demand topical study "Global Prenatal & Maternal Diagnostic Market to 2021" prepared by Kelly Scientific Publications offers a detailed guide to the global prenatal and maternal diagnostic market ...
18p- is a genetic condition caused by a deletion of all or part of the short arm (the p arm) of chromosome 18. It occurs in about 1 of every 50,000 births. The preferred terminology for this condition is 18p-. In the past, it has been referred to as partial monosomy 18p and, rarely, as "de Grouchy syndrome, type 1". 18p- describes a deletion of the short arm of chromosome 18. About half of the people with deletions have a breakpoint at the centromere. Suspicion of a chromosome abnormality is typically raised due to the presence of developmental delays or birth defects. Diagnosis of 18p- is usually made via a blood sample. A routine chromosome analysis, or karyotype, is usually used to make the initial diagnosis, although it may also be made by microarray analysis. Increasingly, microarray analysis is also being used to clarify breakpoints. Prenatal diagnosis is possible via amniocentesis of chorionic villus sampling. 18p- causes a wide range of medical and developmental concerns. There is ...

Prenatal testing to detect Down syndrome is carried out with amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling. Both are invasive tests that carry about a 1% risk of miscarriage. Researchers said Tuesday,
Youll be offered a screening test for Pataus syndrome - as well as Downs syndrome (trisomy 21) and Edwards syndrome (trisomy 18) - from 10-14 weeks of pregnancy. The test assesses your chances of having a baby with these syndromes.. The screening test offered at 10-14 weeks of pregnancy is called the combined test because it involves a blood test and an ultrasound scan.. If the screening tests show that you have a higher risk of having a baby with Pataus syndrome, youll be offered a diagnostic test to find out for certain whether your baby has the syndrome.. This test will check your babys chromosomes in a sample of cells taken from him or her. Two techniques can be used to obtain the cell sample - amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (CVS). These are invasive tests to remove a sample of tissue or fluid so it can be tested for the presence of the extra copy of chromosome 13..

Source. Prenatal diagnosis. One of the most efficient ways of identifying carriers is considered to be prenatal genetic testing. Through such testing specialists will be able to find out if a fetus has inherited a defective copy of the gene from both parents. In this point, couples will have to decide if they want to terminate the pregnancy or not. Abortion can raise a lot of debates, but it remains for the future parents to decide if they want the baby to be born. Most common test recommended for prenatal diagnosis is the Chorionic villus sampling. This test can be taken after the 10th week of pregnancy. Mate selection Couples who plan on marring and conceiving a child can get tested before making such decisions. Carries can be found through various screening programs, so individuals likely to conceive a child with Tay-Sachs disease can find out even before choosing a life partner. This may reduce the risk of conceiving an ill baby. Naturally, there are many debates on this aspect, as well. ...
After genetic mutation is identified, amniotic fluid or chorionic villus sampling (CVS) is obtained during pregnancy which is sent to the genetic laboratory and evaluated for the previously identified mutation. Placental cells may be obtained through a CVS, performed at approximately 10-12 weeks gestation, and amniotic fluid may be obtained through amniocentesis, at approximately 15-18 weeks gestation ...
At present, women are offered screening for these three chromosome disorders at 10-14 weeks of pregnancy. The test combines an ultrasound scan and a blood test, and if it shows that a woman is at an increased risk of having an affected pregnancy, she is offered a diagnostic test, an amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (CVS); these are invasive tests that involve inserting a needle through the mothers abdomen into her womb to collect samples of fluid surrounding the foetus or tissue from the placenta.. With the new method, women provided a blood sample at about 11 weeks of pregnancy. The sample was divided into two; one used for the conventional screening test and one held in reserve. The first sample was used to assess the womens risk of any of the three disorders. If, on the basis of that test, the risk of having an affected pregnancy was 1 in 800 or a higher risk, the other blood sample was automatically retrieved for a DNA test (i.e. performed in a "reflex" manner), without having to ...

PFSI008 How the Test Is Done CELL-FREE DNA PRENATAL SCREENING TEST What is it? The cell-free DNA prenatal screening test (also called "cfDNA test") screens for certain conditions caused by an abnormal number of chromosomes. It does not test for all types of chromosomal disorders. Screening tests are used to estimate whether your baby is at higher risk or lower risk of having a certain condition. Diagnostic tests can give a definite answer about whether the baby has a certain condition. These tests include amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (CVS). = maternal ... ...

Bad news: our babys neck was measuring much larger than it should be, which means there could be a chromosomal issue, like Down syndrome, or worse (as in the baby may not make it). The baby could also be fine, but Dr. C thinks its serious and wanted me to get a CVS (chorionic villus sampling) done - similar to an amniocentesis, where they stick a needle in my belly to get a sample from the placenta. The results would tell us what chromosomal issue the baby has, if any. She doesnt want me to get a cerclage if the baby has a condition incompatible with life, so she thinks we need to know what were dealing with. Dr. C wanted to do the procedure right then and there, because it is time-sensitive, but Logan (who was with me, thank God) and I felt very uneasy about making that decision right away. I already had an appointment scheduled with Dr. H this morning, so we decided to talk to him and to family and friends, before making a definite decision. In a way, it was a blessing that my appointments ...
Chorionic villus sampling (CVS) looks at cells from the placenta. To do the test, your doctor may put a thin tube through your vagina and cervix to take out a small piece of the placenta. Or the doctor may take out the piece through a needle in your belly. This test can diagnose many genetic diseases. But it cant find problems with the spinal cord.. Amniocentesis looks at the amniotic fluid that surrounds your baby. Your doctor will put a needle through your belly into your uterus and take out a very small amount of fluid to test.. ...

A karyotype test is basically a test that analyses your chromosomes. It tells you how many chromosomes a person has and looks at the structure of each chromosome individually and allows us to determine whether your embryos need additional screening before they are selected for implantation.. A karyotype can be performed on any tissue but most often it is done from a blood sample, a sample of amniotic fluid or a piece of placenta obtained through chorionic villi sampling. Karyotyping is a complex process that involves growing the cells, obtaining the chromosomes, staining and analysing the chromosomes and reporting the results. A karyotype is an actual photograph of the chromosomes from one cell.. We check the chromosome set of both partners to exclude the possibility of underlying chromosomal rearrangement problem and, from the patients perspective; a karyotype is usually a simple blood test. It is what happens to the blood after it is collected that is actually quite complex.. Sometimes a part ...
In recent years, QF-PCR for the detection of common chromosomal trisomies has been introduced as a validated method at a number of cytogenetic centers 13-16. Our study presents results based on the application of QF-PCR for the rapid detection of aneuploidies in chromosomes 13, 18, 21, X and Y on 162 amniotic fluid samples in the Brazilian population.. The QF-PCR results alone were in accordance with 98.05% of all karyotypes excluding cases with chromosomal rearrangements. These results are compatible with other recent reports in the literature. Lildballe et al. 17 analyzed 2,550 samples from chorionic villus sampling (CVS) and amniotic fluid from high-risk pregnancies and reported positive and negative predictive values greater than 99.8%. In this work, different predictive values were reported for each chromosomal abnormality, and even for mosaic trisomies, the detection rate was higher than 99.8%. Rostami et al. 12 reported 4,058 samples analyzed for QR-PCR with a detection rate of 98.59%. ...
Hi I feel like I am losing my mind, still waiting for our full CVS (Chorionic Villus Sampling) results and it has been 2 weeks. Just rang the clinic who now said it can be 2 - 3 weeks! Really dont think I can take another week of all this waiting, what can be taking so long, just want to know that all is ok so we can book the heart scan. This is the worst 2 weeks ever. Is anyone else waiting for results? Sam
Yeah, well, most of you know whats going on, for those of you who dont, here it is. Ive not had the easiest pregnancy so far between all the morning/ evening sickness, and my trip to the hospital when I was bleeding. The doctors have been watching after me and 2 weeks ago, I had another ultrasound done and they found a couple things wrong with the baby. I had to go in and have a CVS (Chorionic villus sampling). Its where they take a very long (and painfull needle) into my stomach down into the babys placenta. Anyways, they pretty much took a biopsy of the placenta and took it for testing. Yesterday, Patrick and I got the call that all parents to be dread getting, the baby has down syndrome. We wont know for another 4 weeks the extent of the birth defects. We just have the pray for not much. We already know that it has a Cystic Hygroma, which is a fluid filled sac on its neck, and what seems to be barly any of a nasal bone. Luckly, we seem to have the BEST support group with all of our ...

You will take off your clothes below the waist. You will have a paper or cloth covering around your waist. You will lie on your back on an exam table with your feet raised and supported by stirrups.. Your doctor will put a special tool with curved sides (speculum) into your vagina. The speculum gently spreads apart the vaginal walls. This lets the doctor see the inside of the vagina and the cervix. The cervix will be cleaned with a special soap.. Your doctor will use ultrasound to guide a thin tube (catheter) through your cervix to the placenta. Gel will be rubbed on your belly. An ultrasound device (transducer) will be moved over your belly. It gives off and picks up sound waves. The sound waves are sent to a computer to make a picture of your uterus, your baby, and the placenta. The doctor can also use ultrasound to check your babys heart rate. For more information, see the topic Fetal Ultrasound.. When the catheter is in the right place, a sample of chorionic villus cells will be ...
The quadruple screen (Quad screen) involves analyzing levels of maternal serum alpha fetoprotein (MSAFP), total hCG, unconjugated estriol, and inhibin A between 15 and 21 weeks gestation to calculate the risk for trisomies 18 and 21. In addition, it provides a risk assessment for open neural tube defects. For patients who present after 13 6/7 weeks or choose not to undergo first-trimester screening, the Quad screen is an option. In a pregnancy affected by Down syndrome, both MSAFP and unconjugated estriol are low and hCG and inhibin A are elevated. The Quad screen has a detection rate of 81% for Down syndrome at a 5% false-positive rate. Like first-trimester screening, the Quad screen requires an invasive test to confirm the diagnosis of a chromosomal abnormality (ie, amniocentesis or chorionic villous sampling [CVS]). For those patients who chose to undergo first-trimester screening and/or CVS, neural tube defect screening in the form of a second-trimester MSAFP level should be offered. The ...

From Obstetrics & Gynecology, Volume 110, No. 6, December 2007, page 1459 (ACOG membership or $20 payment required for articles.). Heralding a change in standard obstetric practice, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has recommended that pregnant women of all ages - not just women aged 35 and over - should be offered invasive prenatal diagnostic testing such as amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling to detect possible genetic abnormalities in their fetuses.. The recommendation, published in a practice bulletin in the December issue of the organizations journal Obstetrics & Gynecology, dramatically expands womens access to prenatal diagnosis, effectively making all prenatal tests and screens available to all of the 6 million American women who get pregnant each year. It will establish a new standard of care, and change expectations for insurance coverage and legal liability involving pregnancy.. Until now, obstetricians have usually offered invasive testing just to ...
This information leaflet is for pregnant women who are offered a chorionic villus sampling (CVS) or amniocentesis diagnostic test.
Each person has a blood type (O, A, B, or AB). Everyone also has an Rh factor (positive or negative).. The Rh factor is a protein on the covering of the red blood cells. If the Rh factor protein is on the cells, the person is Rh positive. If theres no Rh factor protein, the person is Rh negative.. A baby may have the blood type and Rh factor of either parent, or a combination of both parents.. There can be a problem when an Rh negative mother has a baby with an Rh positive father. If the babys Rh factor is positive, like his or her fathers, this can be an issue if the babys red blood cells cross to the Rh negative mother. When this happens, the mom becomes sensitized to Rh positive blood.. This often happens at birth when the placenta breaks away. But it may also happen any time the moms and babys blood cells mix. This can occur during a miscarriage or fall. It may also happen during a prenatal test. These can include amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling. These tests use a needle to ...
Doctors can determine if a baby has Down syndrome through tests both during pregnancy and after the birth. The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) recommends all women be given the option of testing. During pregnancy, screening tests may be undertaken that, while highly accurate and non-invasive, are not a definitive diagnosis of Down syndrome. A doctor will look for markers in the blood or common fetal traits during a sonogram to estimate the chances of the baby having Down syndrome. A positive result may indicate the likelihood of Down syndrome. The doctor will then recommend diagnostic testing to confirm the diagnosis. A chorionic villus sampling (CVS) or amniocentesis is usually performed during the first or second trimester of pregnancy. With CVS a sample of the placenta is taken, and with amniocentesis a small amount of amniotic fluid is removed. Both tests carry a very small risk of inducing miscarriage or premature birth. The benefits outweigh the risk, as these tests ...
This study will examine how women think and feel about prenatal testing (amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling), how those thoughts and feelings change over time, and how they contribute to the decision whether or not to undergo prenatal testing.. Prenatal diagnostic testing is offered to pregnant women at increased risk of carrying a baby affected with a genetic or chromosomal abnormality. Although these tests are well established, standard-of-care procedures, much remains unknown about how best to ensure that women make decisions about whether or not to undergo testing that are consistent with their beliefs and values. This study will explore the extent to which women are ambivalent about prenatal testing and determine how they might benefit from counseling aimed at improving the quality of their decision-making.. Women 18 years of age and older who are scheduled for a prenatal genetics visit at clinics in Baltimore, MD; Minneapolis, MN; Binghamton, NY; Salt Lake City, UT; Washington, ...

FRIDAY, July 1, 2016 (HealthDay News) - For pregnant women with HIV infection, invasive prenatal testing does not increase the risk of vertical transmission, according to a study published online June 20 in BJOG: An International Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology.. Marco Floridia, M.D., from the Istituto Superiore di Sanità in Rome, and colleagues conducted an observational study among pregnant women with HIV to examine the rates of amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling and the outcomes associated with those procedures. Data were examined for 2,065 pregnancies in women with HIV.. The researchers found that 5.5 percent of participants underwent invasive testing. In 87.6 percent of cases, the procedures were conducted under antiretroviral treatment, with the proportion of tests performed under highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) increasing significantly over time (100 percent in 2011 to 2015). There were three intrauterine deaths (2.6 percent), and 14 pregnancies were terminated ...

In hemolytic disease of the newborn, fetal red cells become coated with IgG alloantibody of maternal origin, directed against an antigen on the fetal cells that is of paternal origin and absent on maternal cells. The IgG-coated cells undergo accelerated destruction, both before and after birth. The clinical severity of the disease can vary from intrauterine death to hematological abnormalities detected only if blood from an apparently healthy infant is subject to serologic testing.. Pregnancy causes immunization when fetal red cells possessing a paternal antigen foreign to the mother enter the maternal circulation, an event described as fetomaternal hemorrhage (FMH). FMH occurs in up to 75% of pregnancies, usually during the third trimester and immediately after delivery. Delivery is the most common immunizing event, but fetal red cells can also enter the mothers circulation after amniocentesis, spontaneous or induced abortion, chorionic villus sampling, cordocentesis, or rupture of an ectopic ...

22q11.2 deletion, the most common microdeletion syndrome within the general population, is estimated to have a prevalence of 1 in 3000 to 6000. Non-invasive prenatal testing has recently expanded to include screening for several microdeletions including 22q11.2. Given the expansion of prenatal screening options to include microdeletions, it is important to understand the limits of this technology and the variety of reasons that a discordant positive result can occur. Here, we describe a case of a pregnant woman who received a positive non-invasive prenatal maternal plasma screen for 22q11.2 deletion. Maternal and postnatal neonatal peripheral blood cytogenetic, PCR, and fluorescence in situ hybridization studies were normal, but the placenta was mosaic for 22q11.2 deletion in two of three biopsy sites. This case illustrates both the complexities of pre- and post-test counseling for microdeletion screening and the potential for a discordant positive microdeletion result because of confined placental

Damage to the amniotic sac has been implicated as a cause of amniotic band syndrome under the extrinsic theory. The exact reason that the amniotic sac tears or ruptures is not always known and researchers believe that in some cases it may happen as a random occurrence.. In some cases, specific environmental factors have been identified. In some infants, trauma to the abdominal area during pregnancy or blunt trauma to the placenta seemed to have caused the amniotic band syndrome.. A few infants have been affected after the performance of a diagnostic technique chorionic villus sampling (CVS), when performed early during pregnancy. The prenatal test was performed to detect certain problems in a fetus such as chromosomal abnormalities or certain genetic disorders. During the procedure, tissue is removed from the placenta and certain cells called chorionic villi are studied. One estimate of the risk for this occasional risk was 1 in 2,000 CVS procedures.. It has also been reported that intense ...
We found that Turners syndrome in Denmark was diagnosed prenatally at a rate that was much higher than the observed postnatal rate. The result was highly significant for both amniocentesis and chorion villus sampling, and when cases referred after ultrasonography were excluded. The rate of spontaneous abortion in the first trimester is estimated to be 99%, but this high rate of abortion can only partially explain our findings.2 12 The fact that 91% of all fetuses with the syndrome detected by amniocentesis (and 40% of those detected by chorion villus sampling) survived until term when the pregnancy was not terminated suggests that other factors may play a role and that most fetuses with Turners syndrome detected by amniocentesis are viable.. Hook and Warburton presented data from the New York State Chromosome Registry, where, for every 100000 female fetuses tested by amniocentesis, about 85 (95% confidence interval 54 to 127) cases of Turners syndrome were detected. We found 176 (134 to 215) ...
Indications for chorionic villus sampling (CVS) are similar to those for amniocentesis, except for a few rare genetic conditions that require chorionic villi for diagnosis. CVS is generally performed at 10-12 weeks of gestation. The primary advantage of CVS over amniocentesis is that results are available much earlier in pregnancy, which provides reassurance for parents when results are normal, and when results are abnormal, allows earlier and safer methods of pregnancy termination. Skill in ultrasound-guided procedures and extensive specialized training are required before attempting CVS, and maintenance of skills with regularly scheduled procedures is essential. Relative contraindications to CVS include vaginal infections (including chlamydia and herpes), vaginal bleeding or spotting, extreme anteversion or retroversion of the uterus, and patient body habitus precluding easy access to the uterus or clear visualization of intrauterine structures with ultrasonography. Several major collaborative ...
Development of the placenta during the late first trimester is critical to ensure normal growth and development of the fetus. Developmental differences in this window such as sex-specific variation are implicated in later placental disease states, yet gene expression at this time is poorly understood. RNA-sequencing was performed to characterize the transcriptome of 39 first trimester human placentas using chorionic villi following genetic testing (17 females, 22 males). Gene enrichment analysis was performed to find enriched canonical pathways and gene ontologies in the first trimester. DESeq2 was used to find sexually dimorphic gene expression. Patient demographics were analyzed for sex differences in fetal weight at time of chorionic villus sampling and birth. RNA-sequencing analyses detected 14,250 expressed genes, with chromosome 19 contributing the greatest proportion (973/2852, 34.1% of chromosome 19 genes) and Y chromosome contributing the least (16/568, 2.8%). Several placenta-enriched genes as
Rationale: Conventional prenatal diagnosis (PND) for single-gene disorders requires invasive procedures, either chorionic villus sampling between 11 and 14 weeks gestation or amniocentesis after 15 weeks. Although these approaches to obtain foetal DNA currently provide the golden standard for PND, the invasive procedures carry a risk of miscarriage of 0.5-1%. A reliable non-invasive alternative has long been sought. Circulating cell-free foetal (cff) nucleic acids (DNA and RNA), which are present in maternal blood during pregnancy, can be used for non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT). NIPT for some chromosomal anomalies (trisomy 21, 13, 18) is now validated. NIPT for other chromosomal anomalies is still under development. NIPT of single-gene disorders is technically very challenging, due to the predominance of maternal DNA sequences, Some small studies have shown that a very limited number of monogenic genetic disorders can currently be diagnosed in maternal blood. In general de novo mutations ...

Cultured amniocytes or fibroblasts from all of the fetuses displayed abnormal fatty acid ratios, and the parents elected therapeutic abortions. Dysmorphic features in one fetus consisted of micrognathia, proximal implantation of toes, and bilateral talipes equinovarus. Radiologic examination of the fetus confirmed the dysmorphic features and revealed foci of mineralization in the patellae. Biochemical analysis of three of the fetuses demonstrated markedly increased ...
NIPT involves taking a sample of blood from the pregnant woman. This can be done from 10 weeks of pregnancy onwards. The blood sample is evaluated for the babys DNA to determine a level of risk for Down syndrome (trisomy 21), Edward syndrome (trisomy 18) and Patau syndrome (trisomy 13).. It is important to understand that NIPT is a screening and not a diagnostic test. If the result comes back indicating a low risk for trisomies 21, 18 and 13, it is very unlikely (less than or equal to 0.1% chance) that your baby has one of these disorders. If the result comes back indicating a high risk of trisomy, invasive testing with amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling may be offered. Furthermore, this test does not provide information about structural abnormalities. However, the benefit of the test is that it is non-invasive and not associated with an increased risk of pregnancy loss.. NIPT is offered to high-risk women including those aged 35 years and over, those with an abnormal ultrasound, a ...

Mosaic structural chromosomal abnormalities observed along the trophoblast-mesenchyme-fetal axis, although rare, pose a difficult problem for their prognostic interpretation in prenatal diagnosis. Additional issues are raised by the presence of mosaic imbalances of the same chromosome showing different sizes in the different tissues, that is, deletions and duplications in the cytotrophoblast and mesenchyme of chorionic villi (CV). Some of these cytogenetic rearrangements originate from the post-zygotic breakage of a dicentric chromosome or of the product of its first anaphasic breakage. Selection of the most viable cell line may result in confined placental mosaicism of the most severe imbalance, favoring the presence of the cell lines with the mildest duplications or deletions in the fetal tissues. We document three cases of ambiguous results in CV analysis due to the presence of different cell lines involving structural rearrangements of the same chromosome which were represented differently ...
Determining whether a fetus has an important chromosomal abnormality is key to providing appropriate counselling to parents regarding antenatal intervention with the aim of promoting lung growth. In the first trimester, however, both amniocentesis and chorion villus sampling have been associated with an excess of infant respiratory symptoms and abnormal lung function at follow-up.. Antenatal interventions that aim to prevent abnormal antenatal lung growth include: amnio-infusion, which can facilitate ultrasound examination but has not been shown to improve lung growth; and thoraco-amniotic shunting, which results in effective drainage of pleural effusions, facilitating resuscitation, but is usually performed too late in pregnancy to influence lung growth. In utero surgical repair of CDH has been attempted, but a more promising technique is obstruction of the normal egress of fetal lung fluid by placing a balloon in the trachea.. Pre-natal antioxidant supplementation might be expected to ...
For Preventing Tay-Sachs disease, three main approaches have been used to prevent or reduce the incidence of Tay-Sachs disease in those who are at high risk: Prenatal diagnosis. If both parents are identified as carriers, prenatal genetic testing can determine whether the fetus has inherited a defective copy of the gene from both parents. Couples may be willing to terminate the pregnancy, although abortion may raise ethical issues. Chorionic villus sampling (CVS), which can be performed after the 10th week of gestation, is the most common form of prenatal diagnosis. Both CVS and amniocentesis present developmental risks to the fetus that have to be balanced with the possible benefits, especially in cases where the carrier status of only one parent is known. Mate selection. In Orthodox Jewish circles, the organization Dor Yeshorim carries out an anonymous screening program so that couples who are likely to conceive a child with Tay-Sachs or another genetic disorder can avoid marriage.

During pregnancy, TNF-α induces synthesis of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) which allows cytotrophoblasts to reach the spiral arteries deeper within the uterine decidua. TNF-α also augments apoptosis of vascular smooth muscle cells surrounding these arteries. In this study, chorionic villi TNF-α protein expression throughout normal human gestation were investigated. Methods: Placental chorionic villi tissues obtained from elective surgical terminations of pregnancy and from uncomplicated term births were assayed using EIA kits (Cayman Chemicals, Ann Arbor, MI, Item # 589201).

0048] Suitable samples for the methods described herein include any biological fluid, cell, tissue, or fraction thereof, that includes biomolecules indicative of a metabolic state (e.g., a metabolic disorder characterized by altered succinylacetone levels such as Hereditary tyrosinemia type I). A sample can be, for example, a specimen obtained from a subject (e.g., a mammal such as a human) or can be derived from such a subject. For example, a sample can be a tissue section obtained by biopsy, or cells that are placed in or adapted to tissue culture. Exemplary samples therefore include cultured fibroblasts, cultured amniotic fluid cells, and chorionic villus sample. A sample can also be a biological fluid specimen such as urine, blood, plasma, serum, saliva, semen, sputum, cerebral spinal fluid, tears, mucus, and the like. A sample can be further fractionated, if desired, to a fraction containing particular cell types. For example, a blood sample can be fractionated into serum or into fractions ...
Aliso Viejo, Calif., devicemaker Cianna Medical has received FDA clearance for its Savi Scout surgical guidance system, which uses real-time audible and visual signs to help surgeons target tissue during lumpectomy and biopsy removal procedures.. The device includes a reflector placed in the target tissue up to seven days before surgery and nonradioactive, electromagnetic waves, which detect the reflector during the actual procedure. A hand-held instrument emits infrared light when it is over the reflector, helping the surgeon pinpoint the incision. The surgeon then removes both the reflector and the target tissue, Cianna explains.. In a pilot study to evaluate placement, localization and retrieval of the device, surgeons reported 100 percent success using Savi Scout, the company reports. In all 24 cases, the reflector and tissue were successfully removed, there were no adverse events and pathology reports showed clear margins in comparable numbers to radioactive seed location.
