Amniocentesis is a prenatal examination. To perform this examination, a small amount of amniotic fluid is removed from the sac surrounding the fetus. A fine needle is inserted through the abdomen of pregnant women to collect amniotic fluid samples. Under ultrasound guidance, the entire process is carried out.
Genetic testing, fetal lung testing, fetal infection diagnosis, and treatment of certain fetal disorders are some of the things taken into consideration in this test.
There are several reasons why this procedure is useful. Firstly, it can identify possible chromosome differences such as trisomy 13, trisomy 18 or trisomy 21. This test can determine whether any chromosomes are missing or overexpressed. Once the mother has undergone at least 16 weeks of gestation, or in other words, is in her second trimester, this test can be completed.
