Indications for amniocentesis

Amniocentesis is an invasive technique and is therefore only recommended when the fetus is at high risk of a chromosomopathy:

  • Advanced maternal age
  • Altered triple screening
  • History of abortions or fetal malformations

With these studies, in addition to monitoring and medical advice during pregnancy, the risk of perinatal mental retardation has been reduced from 25 to 5% in recent years.
