Had countless prenatal sonos. Can congenital heart defect be undetected before birth?

Had countless prenatal sonos. Can congenital heart defect be undetected before birth?

Sure..: Unfortunately, the prenatal ultrasound detection rate for fetal cardiac defects is variable between 15-70% among centers, with the largest ones having the best results. As you can tell, short of having a fetal echo, the routine prenatal ultrasound (or even a comprehensive/targeted one) can miss even major cardiac defects in 30-85% of cases.. Take Folic Acid to prevent heart defects in you fetus! ...Read more

Can genetic testing prevent birth defects in pregnancy?

Can genetic testing prevent birth defects in pregnancy?

Nope.: Genetic prenatal testing can detect many chromosomal or microscopic dna defects - but it cannot prevent birth defects! 2-4% of all newborns will have a minor or major birth defect and the vast majority of those have unknown genetic underpinnings at this time, although many of us are working to change that. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily to prevent 75-95% of major neural/cardiac fetal anomalies! ...Read more

Safety of chorionic sampling vs. Amniocentesis for prenatal diagnosis of chromosomal abnormalities?

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 chorionic villi sampling determine whether a fetus has genetic abnormalities?

Does chorionic villi sampling determine whether a fetus has genetic abnormalities?

Yes and no: Chorionic villi sampling is a procedure where a small sample of cells from the placenta are removed, early in a pregnancy. A lab can determine if there are any extra or missing chromosomes, or large parts of a chromosome that are extra or missing. Other tests on chorionic villi can look for abnormalities in single genes, but no test can determine that a baby has no genetic abnormalities. ...Read more

Do multiple pregnancies present higher risks than singleton pregnancies?

Do multiple pregnancies present higher risks than singleton pregnancies?

Absotutely: Every risk in a singleton pregnancy is higher with twins. Risk of miscarriage, genetic abnormalities in a child, and even though small, the risk of one baby not surviving. Risks to mother of hypertension and diabetes are much higher. And the risk of early delivery is much higher. Even though twins generally do well, many twins do not. So it is always medically preferable to have a single pregnancy. ...Read more
