PRENATAL DIAGNOSIS

Prenatal Diagnosis is done by the doctor to determine whether your foetus has a problem such as Down Syndrome.

Amniocentesis and Chronic villus samplings(CVS) are the two tests which help in finding the genetic disorders before the birth of a baby. Prenatal Diagnosis and Prenatal Screening tests are the two aspects of prenatal care that focus on detecting anatomic and physiologic problems with the foetus as early as possible. Prenatal Diagnosis include medical tests to detect problems such as neural tube defects, chromosome abnormalities and gene mutations that would lead to genetic disorders and birth defects. Birth defects such as Spina bifida, Cleft palate,Tay-Sachs disease, Sickle cell anemia, thalassemia, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, and fragile X syndrome. The screening focuses on finding the problems among a large population with affordable and noninvasive methods. The diagnosis focuses on pursuing additional detailed information once a particular problem has been detected. Prenatal Screening can be used even for the foetus sex discernment. In few cases, the tests are administered to determine if the foetus needs to be aborted by the physicians. Patients also find it useful to diagnose high-risk pregnancies early so that the patients can schedule their delivery in a tertiary care hospital where the baby can receive appropriate care.

Why prenatal diagnosis is must?

1. To enable timely medical or surgical treatment of a foetus condition before birth.

2. To give the parents the chance to abort a foetus with the diagnosed condition.

3. To give parents the chance to prepare psychologically, socially, financially and medically for a baby with a health problem or disability, or for the likelihood of a stillbirth.

This information about the foetus before birth helps the parents as well as healthcare staff to prepare themselves for the delivery of a child with a particular health problem. For example, Down syndrome is associated with cardiac defects that may need intervention immediately upon birth. Apart from this many expectant parents would like to know sex of their baby before the birth. This is done by the methods amniocentesis with karyotyping and prenatal ultrasound.

In some countries, health care providers have to withhold this information from parents, while in other countries they are expected to give this information.

Prenatal Diagnosis for High-risk Pregnancies

The reasons why a patient might consider her risk of birth defects to be high enough:

• Women over the age of 35.

• Women who have previously had premature babies or babies with a birth defect, especially heart or genetic problems.

• Women who have high blood pressure, lupus, diabetes, asthma, or epilepsy.

• Women who have family histories or ethnic backgrounds prone to genetic disorders or whose partners have these.

• Women who are pregnant with multiples (twins or more).

• Women who have previously had miscarriages.

Obstetrics and Gynaecology Conference 2017aims to bring together outstanding academic scientists, doctors, researchers and research scholars to exchange and contribute their experiences and research results in services related Prenatal Diagnosis. The Obstetrics and Gynaecology Conference 2017 organised by ClytoAccess engages the participants in various plenary talks, scientific presentations, cutting edge technological exhibitions and great networking opportunities. Attend the conference to more about Gynaecology and Obstetrics.
