Chorion villus sampling for early diagnosis of congenital and inherited fetal abnormalities is becoming an increasingly important and popular technique. There is every likelihood it will replace amniocentesis as the first choice for prenatal diagnosis. Despite growing interest in the chorion villus sampling (C.V.S.) test, it has been difficult to acquire up-to-date information about it. This important book provides a complete overview of the test: the technique itself, interpretation and implication of the results, and the establishment of a service and comparison with other tests. Written in a clear and easy-to-read form with numerous illustrations, the book informs family practitioners, obstetricians, residents and genetic counselors about C.V.S. counseling both before referral and when the results have been received.
