Amniocentesis

View this topic in
Amniocentesis (also referred to as amniotic fluid test or AFT), is a medical procedure used in prenatal diagnosis of chromosomal abnormalities and fetal infections, in which a small amount of amniotic fluid, which contains fetal tissues, is extracted from the amnion or amniotic sac surrounding a developing fetus, and the fetal DNA is examined for genetic abnormalities.

A parallel manipulator as a haptic interface solution for amniocentesis simulation

Proceedings 10th IEEE International Workshop on Robot and Human Interactive Communication. ROMAN 2001 (Cat. No.01TH8591), 2001

The education of surgical students in the practical gesture needs to find new pedagogical tools. Some operations such as amniocentesis, require specific training. The medical simulation allows learning step by step, with an increasing difficulty in the exercises. To improve the realism of the simulation, a haptic feedback is sometimes important. We introduce a novel haptic display specially designed for ...

  • Designing online mobile medical records in obstetrics-gynecology subsystem

    The needs for better and faster medical service has force us to create a system that able to serve it. Nowadays, there are many medical records applications have been developed to serve the needs, but most of them still handle the needs in common management of a hospital or medical institution, whereas the subsystems are also needed to be handled even more detail. Having these needs, we need to develop a system that serves the necessities in parted ways to improve the quality of the service. In this paper, we develop not only a web-based, but also a mobile-based medical records system which handle the necessities in obstetrics-gynecology subsystem. A mobile-based system has been chosen, so it can be accessed from everywhere without decreasing the system's requirements. We develop a medical records system which can handle the necessities of a hospital or medical institution not only in common management, but also the needs for the subsystems which can be accessed from everywhere.

  • A parallel manipulator as a haptic interface solution for amniocentesis simulation

    The education of surgical students in the practical gesture needs to find new pedagogical tools. Some operations such as amniocentesis, require specific training. The medical simulation allows learning step by step, with an increasing difficulty in the exercises. To improve the realism of the simulation, a haptic feedback is sometimes important. We introduce a novel haptic display specially designed for a pedagogical simulator of amniocentesis. The main problem is to keep the needle free, as in reality, and so to place the interface in the body of the manikin. All the gestures are simulated: ultrasound scanning, the choice of a point of insertion of the puncture, the crossing through the different abdominal tissues. A mechanical model based on a finite element formulation gives a force feedback tensor. The force feedback interface consists of a parallel manipulator with three degrees of freedom (DOF). The interface is operated thanks to a needle connected to the mechanical structure of the manipulator.

  • Haptic aided design: a case study

    This paper presents a preliminary investigation of the effectiveness of haptic feedback for design processes involving mechanisms used by a human operator in interacting with an environment. Our example is a case study of the design of an amniocentesis device, which represents a relatively simple and yet meaningful application. We simulated the mechanism, as well as its intended working environment, represented by layered mass-spring surface meshes. The user feels force feedback when manipulating the simulated device via a haptic interface. The user can also interactively update the design by modifying the values of the parameters that describe the mechanism. To investigate the effectiveness of haptic rendering in this design problem, an informal preliminary user study was conducted, where each subject explored a discretized design space of the mechanism. The results of the user study suggest that haptic rendering is effective in expediting the design process for some applications.

  • Intelligent Noninvasive Diagnosis of Aneuploidy: Raw Values and Highly Imbalanced Dataset

    The objective of this paper is to introduce a noninvasive diagnosis procedure for aneuploidy and to minimize the social and financial cost of prenatal diagnosis tests that are performed for fetal aneuploidies in an early stage of pregnancy. We propose a method by using artificial neural networks trained with data from singleton pregnancy cases, while undergoing first trimester screening. Three different datasets<sup>1</sup> with a total of 122 362 euploid and 967 aneuploid cases were used in this study. The data for each case contained markers collected from the mother and the fetus. This study, unlike previous studies published by the authors for a similar problem differs in three basic principles: 1) the training of the artificial neural networks is done by using the markers' values in their raw form (unprocessed), 2) a balanced training dataset is created and used by selecting only a representative number of euploids for the training phase, and 3) emphasis is given to the financials and suggest hierarchy and necessity of the available tests. The proposed artificial neural networks models were optimized in the sense of reaching a minimum false positive rate and at the same time securing a 100% detection rate for Trisomy 21. These systems correctly identify other aneuploidies (Trisomies 13&amp;18, Turner, and Triploid syndromes) at a detection rate greater than 80%. In conclusion, we demonstrate that artificial neural network systems can contribute in providing noninvasive, effective early screening for fetal aneuploidies with results that compare favorably to other existing methods.

    At present the successful diagnosis of fetal abnormalities relies on the analysis of fetal genetic material obtained through invasive procedures such as amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling (CVS). These procedures are expensive, time consuming and have the potential to cause harm to both the fetus and mother. A review of current diagnostic techniques in the field of prenatal care is presented. State of the art developments in fetal cell separation from maternal blood are discussed. A novel device concept that uses Microelectromechanical System (MEMS) manufacturing methods and magnetic field filtration is described.

  • Consistent association between image features of fetal lungs from different ultrasound equipments and fetal lung maturity from amniocentesis

    Respiratory disorders in premature are outlined as one of the major causes of newborn morbidity. Therefore, estimation in utero of the risk that a particular newborn will present respiratory distress syndrome is critical in perinatal medicine. Fetal lung maturity assessment by non-invasive methods is an unsolved problem since 80's. There has been a significant effort reporting that ultrasound images carry information associated with changes of fetal lung microstructure but it required the lung-to-liver measurements to be calibrated, which limits clinical feasibility. In this work, we explored the association between image features only from a fetal lung computed by a previously reported probabilistic model and fetal lung maturity. Two studies validated image features obtained from different US equipments: 957 scans were correlated to gestational age (r>;0.97); and 83 scans were modeled to estimate a normalized lung maturity index in 7 blind samples. Bootstrapping provided median r>;0.82.
