Odběr plodové vodyAmniocentesis is performed from 16th week of pregnancy, usually in mothers where a suspicion of a defect was raised in a later date of the pregnancy. The principle of the test is very similar to the CVS – an outpatient procedure under the guidance of an ultrasound. The needle is inserted through the amniotic membranes form where we aspirate a small amount of the amniotic fluid. The sample is the sent for cytogenetic and molecular genetic testing. We determine the chromosomal status of the fetus and in indicated cases can also perform a specific test for a suspected genetic syndromes. Amniocetesis carries a 0,5-1% risk of complications, which can result in a miscarriage. The decision to undertake the test has to be reached after careful considerations of all the factors involved by the parents and by the medical personnel.

The results are available according to the type of investigation that is requested. The exclusion of the commonest chromosomal defects (trisomy 21, 18 a 13) is performed by a QF PCR molecular method and the results are issued within 48 hours form the procedure. We inform you of the results by telephone. The investigation of the complete chromosomal set is performed by a cytogenetic method and takes 2-3 weeks. The result is then sent to you and to your gynaecologist by a letter. Should a gene test be requested (DNA testing), the length of the investigation depends on the particular gene. All the testing should be completed by 24th week of gestation.
