OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to quantify the contemporary procedure-related loss rate after midtrimester amniocentesis using a database generated from patients who were recruited to the First And Second Trimester Evaluation of Risk for Aneuploidy trial. METHODS: A total of 35,003 unselected patients from the general population with viable singleton pregnancies were enrolled in the First And Second Trimester Evaluation of Risk for Aneuploidy trial between 10 3/7 and 13 6/7 weeks… Expand
Fetal loss associated with second trimester amniocentesis
TLDR
The procedure-related fetal loss rates in pregnant women ≥35 years old after amniocentesis before 24 and 28 complete weeks were 0.17 and 0.50%, respectively, which indicates that the certain factors influencing the risk of fetal loss might be independent of the amNIocentesis procedure. Expand

TLDR
Previous vaginal bleeding increased the risk of pregnancy loss after amniocentesis with an OR 4.1, but a history of two or more miscarriages is not associated with a greater fetal loss rate, while the increased percentage in patients affected by uterine myoma appears connected with the presence of fibroids rather than procedure. Expand
Fetal loss rates after mid-trimester amniocentesis
TLDR
It would be useful for each center to investigate its own pregnancy loss rate and thereby provide a firmer basis for its policy for counseling women requesting amniocentesis, if enough such investigations were reported, a true benchmark figure could also emerge. Expand
Pregnancy loss rate after mid-trimester amniocentesis in twin pregnancies.
TLDR
The attributable risk of pregnancy loss before 24 weeks' gestation after mid-trimester amniocentesis in twin pregnancies is 1 in 56 (1.8%). Expand

TLDR
The present study has emphasized the significance of certain risk factors for adverse outcome and therefore the need to individualize the risk, and is a safe-invasive procedure for prenatal diagnosis with total FLR of 1.19% in this institution during the study period. Expand
The yield and complications of amniocentesis performed after 24 weeks of gestation
TLDR
The complication rate of late amniocentesis performed after 24 weeks was 4.8%, which is significantly higher than that of second trimester AC, and factors that affect complication rate are analyzed. Expand
Operator experience reduces the risk of second trimester amniocentesis-related adverse outcomes.
TLDR
Investigation of mid-trimester amniocenteses performed by the same operator on singleton pregnancies in a single private institution during 1994-2007 found operator experience has a beneficial impact on preventing procedure-related adverse outcomes. Expand
Amniocentesis-related adverse outcomes in diamniotic twins: is there a difference compared to singleton pregnancies?
TLDR
The incidence of amniocentesis-related adverse outcomes is not increased in diamniotic twins compared to singleton pregnancies, and advanced maternal age was the main indication for amnocentesis in both singleton and twin pregnancies. Expand
Complication rates after chorionic villus sampling and midtrimester amniocentesis: A 7-year national registry study.
TLDR
The use of a large cohort demonstrated that the procedure-related complication rates were comparable to recent review or meta-analysis, and might facilitate counselling in women who consider invasive genetic diagnostic procedures. Expand
Uterine fibroids and risk for complications following second-trimester amniocentesis.
TLDR
The risk for abortion and PPROM does not increase in the presence of uterine fibroids in women who have undergone antibiotic prophylaxis. Expand

RANDOMISED CONTROLLED TRIAL OF GENETIC AMNIOCENTESIS IN 4606 LOW-RISK WOMEN
TLDR
In the first six weeks after amniocentesis/ultrasound scan, amniotic fluid leakage occurred more often in the study group but there was no difference in the rate of vaginal bleeding, and frequency of postural malformations in the infants in the two groups was the same. Expand
Randomised trial to assess safety and fetal outcome of early and midtrimester amniocentesis
TLDR
The study shows that early amniocentesis is associated with an increased risk of fetal loss and talipes equinovarus and should be taken into consideration when invasive prenatal diagnosis is being offered. Expand

TLDR
Midtrimester amniocentesis is a highly accurate and safe procedure that does not significantly increase the risk of fetal loss or injury. Expand

TLDR
2nd-trimester amniocentesis at about 16 weeks' gestation is a safe, accurate and reliable procedure for the diagnosis of certain classes of genetic disease when it is monitored by ultrasound, performed by a trained obstetrician and carried out in a major health sciences centre. Expand

TLDR
There is no increased risks of limb reduction defects following CVS at 10 weeks or greater, but there is an increase in Talipes from "Early Amniocentesis." in the first trimester CVS is the safer procedure. Expand
Sequential Pathways of Testing After First-Trimester Screening for Trisomy 21
TLDR
The data demonstrate that a sequential screening program that provides patients with first-trimester results and offers the option for early invasive testing or additional serum screening in the second trimester can detect 98% of trisomy 21–affected pregnancies. Expand
FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH LOW BIRTH WEIGHT OF INFANTS DELIVERED AT TERM
TLDR
Delivery at term of a low birth weight infant was significantly associated with maternal prepregnant weight, maternal height, maternal smoking, primiparity, maternal employment, low social class, a previous infant of low birthWeight, threatened abortion and severe toxaemia. Expand
First-trimester or second-trimester screening, or both, for Down's syndrome.
TLDR
First-trimester combined screening at 11 weeks of gestation is better than second- Trimester quadruple screening but at 13 weeks has results similar to second- trimester quadruples screening. Expand
Births: final data for 2003.
TLDR
The twinning rate increased, but the rate of triplet and higher order multiple births was essentially stable, and key measures of birth outcome-the percentages of preterm and low birthweight births-rose. Expand
