Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Our purpose was to evaluate the pregnancy loss rate resulting from genetic amniocentesis after multifetal pregnancy reduction. STUDY DESIGN: A cohort study was performed in pregnancies with maternal age >30 years. Pregnancy loss in a study population of 127 patients who underwent genetic amniocentesis after multifetal pregnancy reduction were compared with a control group of 167 patients who did not have genetic amniocentesis after multifetal pregnancy reduction. RESULTS: The pregnancy loss rate in patients who underwent genetic amniocentesis after multifetal pregnancy reduction was 3.1% (4/127 cases) comparedwith 7.2% (12/167 cases) in the controls (P > .05). In the study group evidence of infection was found in only 1 case, in which the pregnancy loss occurred 1 day after the amniocentesis. In the other cases the pregnancy losses occurred 5 weeks after genetic amniocentesis, and these tosses could notbe directly attributed to either genetic amniocentesis or the multifetal reduction procedure. CONCLUSION: Our data suggest that the performance of genetic amniocentesisafter multifetal pregnancy reduction does not increase the risk of pregnancy loss over that observed in association with the reduction itself.
