Amniocentesis and Chorionic Villus Sampling

Chorionic Villus Sampling

It involves sampling of the chorionic villus to precisely determine chromosomal quality of, or genetic disorders in, the fetus. It provides information on chromosomal quality of the fetus because it originates from the same cell origin as the fetus.

It is especially performed at 11-14 weeks of pregnancy as of 11 weeks of pregnancy.

The outcomes of the most common abnormalities can be obtained within 1 day. It may take 2-3 weeks for rarer abnormalities. The risk for miscarriage from this procedure is one in 200.

Amniocentesis

It is a procedure in which a sample of amniotic fluid is taken in order to precisely determine the chromosomal construction of the fetus. Sampling procedure involves taking a little amount of amniotic fluid by a specific needle under ultrasound. This fluid is replaced by the fetus within a few hours. The outcomes of the most common abnormalities can be obtained within 1 day. It may take 2-3 weeks for rarer abnormalities. The risk for miscarriage from this procedure is one in 200.

Our amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling PCR service gives the results in 1 day for Down syndrome, Trisomy 18, Trisomy 13, Turner syndrome and triploids with high reliability.

Culture results from all chromosomes are delivered in 14-20 days.

Results of amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling are supported by an excellent genetic counseling provided by our specialists in genetics.
