Chorionic villus sampling is frequently utilised in the Nottingham region as a means of early prenatal diagnosis of genetic problems. Its relative safety in the early antenatal period is well established but there has been some concern that perinatal mortality may be greater in the chorionic villus sampling group as compared to amniocentesis. We have in response studied our own data and report the obstetric outcome in 144 cases where the pregnancy has progressed beyond 28 weeks gestation. We have selected a procedure free control group matched for parity. We have found no significant difference in the perinatal outcome and obstetric performance and conclude that at this juncture we should continue to offer our services as chorionic villus sampling offers significant advantages in the first trimester over amniocentesis.
