Amniocentesis and stem cells section[edit]

I've added a general cleanup template to this section. I don't question the intentions of the author of this section, but it should probably be worded more carefully and subtly, so as to avoid potential POV or factual problems. Thanks. Naptastic (talk) 17:36, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

The[edit]

The entire risk section needs to be cited from something. Who knows if anything there is valid?

The PROCEDURE section seems to be casually worded, especially in the last sentence (...You or your doctor...)Derekbd 00:57, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Regarding[edit]

Regarding the risks of amniocentesis. I am not an expert but I have read a note at the gynecologist's where the management of the hospital asked doctors to inform patients about the 2% risk of miscarriage after amniocentesis. Before that the official number was 1%. They even stated they did 200 tests last year and had 3 miscarriages as a direct result and 1 as a more complicated but related reason. Please somebody get this right and include the sources. I think it is important. Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Drevokocur (talkcontribs) 11:16, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

I have read a while ago (a study) that the complications rate varies with the physician's experience, and the numbers they cited varied widely, and could have explained the 2% vs. 0.5% difference. The new 0.06% number is new, and may have been obtained in a specialty clinic with high throughput.Milliemchi (talk) 20:57, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

A note at the Gynecologists that you read once and remember is hardly evidence of a conclusive study. It could just be that one of the doctors at that one hospital were careless, or any number of things.Pstanton 23:59, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

There's a discrepancy between the figures on this article and the chorionic villus sampling article. The CVS one says that they're effectively as safe as each other, whereas this article says CVS is more dangerous (which doesn't tally with the figures given on the CVS page).

Delete the Pain section[edit]

 Done Get rid of the Pain section, its 2 short sentences, and the information isn't cited and pretty dubious in any case. Pstanton 00:00, 26 November 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Pstanton (talkcontribs)

Amniocentesis for lung maturity[edit]

The article does not mention the use of amniocentesis to test for lung maturity when there is a possibility of preterm delivery. This should be added.Milliemchi (talk) 20:22, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

Amniocentesis (sex-selection)[edit]

In the Encyclopedia of International Development (ed Tim Forsyth Routledge 2005) there is an entry on Amniocentesis (sex-selection). The entry argues that Amniocentesis has become prevalent in some cultures (China and India are mentioned). The results of the test are then used as the basis for decisions about abortion. Using Amniocentesis to aid sex-selection is then a major contributor to there being millions of missing women. Would there be any problems with me adding something about this?

Post procedure care section requested[edit]

There is a request at Requested articles for a page on post procedure care after Amnio. I think that should redirect here, but there isn't any discussion of that. It is needed. BakerStMD T|C 20:11, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
