Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The number of invasive procedures (chorionic villous sampling (CVS) or amniocentesis) for fetal testing is decreasing due to the availability of non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) leading to a centralisation of prenatal diagnostic services to accredited fetal medicine centres. A new survey was conducted ten years after the previous one to update the current clinical practice among clinicians who regularly perform CVS. METHOD: Consultants from 32 centres in the UK were invited to take part in an online survey evaluating: the total number of CVS procedures carried out in the Unit in a typical week, the preferred route (transabdominal (TA) vs transcervical (TC)), technique (use of local anaesthetic (LA) and needle technique). RESULTS: Response rate was 96.9%; TA was the preferred route (96.8%) in all centres except one. Single-needle technique is used exclusively in half the centres (51.6%). LA is used by most operators (90.3%) before the procedure. Three centres did not routinely use LA for CVS. CONCLUSIONS: Operators across the UK almost exclusively use the TA route for CVS with single-needle technique in 51.6% of cases. The use of local anaesthetic prior to CVS is a very common practice in the UK.
