The End of Amniocentesis?

How many times have we thought, “would really did that in the past?”. I think the amniocentesis will be one of those things that our older children we ask “is certain that you had to click the gut of the pregnant woman with a needle until you reach the living space of the baby to detect genetic disease?”

And over at risk of life for the baby, although it is minimal, they say, is estimated between a 0.2 and 0.5% chance of suffering a miscarriage after the puncture, which means one of every 200 cases. Some Yes, but his son not stats matter to which touches you lose.

But at the moment what we have. Amniocentesis is, by far, the most reliable method of detecting chromosomal and metabolic abnormalities as those that cause Down syndrome, Edwards or Patau syndrome. It is usually done to moms over the age of 35, who have genetic diseases or have a family history of chromosomal alterations.

Fortunately, the end of this test invasive seems ever closer. I say fortunately because although it serves to rule out and detect defects in the fetus and parents prepare for what is coming to them, also die babies because of it.

Hope is a proof of non invasive diagnosis which, as Eva told us in more detail last days, consists of a simple analysis of the mother’s blood, containing 10% of floating DNA of the fetus.

The studios are still in the experimental stage. We hope that the work of scientists will give with the formula so that we can soon have a way to detect serious illnesses without risk to the mother or the baby.
