What are amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling and blood/saliva test screening used for? Abortions?
Prenatal diagnosis: Cvs and amniocentesis are used to discover chromosomal abnormalities in the fetus. They are also used to diagnose genetic diseases, such as cystic fibrosis, that some people are at risk for. Blood and saliva screening tests are used to find out if parents are at risk for a baby with certain genetic diseases. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Amniocentesis is a procedure used to draw a sample of the amniotic fluid that surrounds and cushions the baby in the womb. This fluid contains cells that have been sloughed off of the developing fetus. Amniocentesis is most often used to detect genetic abnormalities, though the results can also reveal the baby's sex, gauge lung maturity (if done close to term), detect amniotic fluid infections, or ...Read more
Safety of chorionic sampling vs. Amniocentesis for prenatal diagnosis of chromosomal abnormalities?
Risks: The risk of pregnancy loss has been looked at in four randomized studies of cvs vs. Amniocentesis. All four studies show that both procedures have about the same risk of pregnancy loss. About 1 in 1600. Another cvs study showed that losses in a group of women who had the procedure were equal to losses in a group of women who didn't have the procedure. A loss may not be related to the procedure. ...Read more
Does noninvasive prenatal testing(cfDNA )capture baby's genetic defects?Is amniocentesis better for more accurate results? Im 31&12 weeks pregnant.
Some and yes: The cf-DNA can detect many genetic anomalies but it is not 100% and when positive is usually confirmed by an amniocentesis for a full karyotype. The amniocentesis is the gold standard for detecting genetic anomalies . Sampling of the placental tissue _ ie: chorionic villus sampling would be comparable to an amniocentesis and can be performed earlier in the pregnancy. ...Read more
Is a noninvasive prenatal paternity bloodtest, done with blood from alleged fathers, cfdna and 317.000 genetic markers a reliable test?
Can comprehensive chromosome screening (CCS) in IVF screen for (1) partial trisomy, (2) unbalanced translocation, and (3) balanced translocation? Does testing parental karyotyping before CCS help?
Test for Aneuploidy: Aneuploidy is the term used to describe any embryo with either too many or too few chromosomes. It is the cause of greater than 60% of miscarriages, as well as the most likely reason that patients do not get pregnant from an IVF cycle. The purpose of CCS is to analyze, select and transfer only embryos that do not have abnormalities in their number of chromosomes. A genetic consult is needed; ...Read more
Help please! is the noninvasive prenatal paternity bloodtest with 317.000 genetic markers from natera reliable/ accurate? Can i trust the outcome?
Website : The company website states a 99.9% accuracy. Yesterday when you asked though you mentioned the results were "indeterminate". ...Read more
Dr I have HBsAG positive , hbeag negative and HBV DNA quantification results 3206 iu/ml liv function test are normal range any treatment available?
AS per lab results my torch panel test is positive with rubella IgG 15.40 Iu/ml and Cmv IgG positive 132 U/ml.As values are higher than normal range ?
got negative HEP C RNA test (lower limit 15 IU/mL) Oct 16 after year inconclusive antibody results. Treatment, further testing or follow up needed?
Hep C negative: This is an extremely good (sensitive) test for the presence of Hepatitis C. Since the test is negative, that means you don't have it. It's possible you HAD it- but your body took care of it and wiped it out. Since your antibody test is weakly positive-this probably happened some time ago, or it could be a false (weakly) positive test that's cross reacting with something else. Would still see MD... ...Read more
16 weeks pregnant, Down syndrome screening test positive, 1/150 chance that baby might have abnormality. Will do amnio. Please explain what results mea?
High Risk for Downs: The screening test result means that you have a 1 in 150 chance that your fetus has down syndrome. While this is considered a positive screen, the chance is still less than 1%. Rather than an amino, you might consider a blood test like the maternit-21, which can be done from your blood and is greater than 99% accurate. Discuss this option with your ob. ...Read more
My lab results are as follows..Total bilirubin 3 and direct 0.7..SGPT is 62 and total protein 8.8 and globulin 4.7..Urine test positive klebsiella.
Are normal cbc, billuprin, amylase and lipase levels, CT scan and qualitative fecal fat test a good indication against pancreatic cancer?
Postive, high, rast test results - only hayfever and animal reactions though? Are rast tests reliable?
RAST vs skin tests: The reason allergists prefer skin tests to rast tests is because the skin tests show your body's biological response to allergens. Rast tests only measure the amount of antibody and do not predict its clinical binding and symptom-provoking abilities. That said, no test is perfect. All have to be compared to your experience and correlated with your history. Allergists spend more time doing this. ...Read more
A lab reported my ANA test result -ve, cut off rate: 1.117, sample rate: 0.198. They used immulite 2000 rai analyzer. Is it standard, reliable report?
It's just a lab: As a pathologist, i'm well-acquainted with the pitfalls of all ANA testing. The real decision is whether to treat your joint pain as lupus or one of its ana-positive variants. Many healthy folks have some ANA on board. The value that's returned from the lab is only one piece of the puzzle in working up rheumatologic disease. ...Read more
Placenta vs fluid: Cvs can usually be done earlier and involves obtaining placental tissue for chromosome analysis. This is done by needle biopsy either through the cervix or abdomen. Amniocentesis is obtaining amniotic fluid for testing also by needle aspiration. Both are done with ultrasound guidance, cvs slightly riskier with bleeding & cramping, both safe to do, both done by mfm docs. I hope that helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
LDH Isoenzymes lab test results:
LDH total- 153. LD1- 32, LD2-30, LD3, 20, LD4- 8, LD5- 10. Are these results normal? Is the LD1&LD2 ratio abnormal?
Historic test: Matthew, the LDH isoenzyme test is ancient history, almost never ordered nowadays. And your LDH is normal. The old 1-2 ratio is an antique screen for a heart attack, and it's neither sensitive nor specific. I know you're obsessing over the idea that you have lymphoma, and a few websites suggest this as a screening test -- but it's not. Focus on building a life for yourself. ...Read more
C.trachomatis RNA TMA Result: Detected. Standard range: Not detected. Test performed using the Aptima Combo2 (R) assay gen-probe(r)
You have chlamydia: "Detected" means the test found chlamydia -- i.e. a positive result. Return to the doctor or clinic where the test was done for treatment. (If you tested yourself at a lab, see a doctor or clinic ASAP.) Your current or recent sex partner(s) also need treatment. Good luck! ...Read more
