Why is it important?

The results of our study show that TA-CVS, TC-CVS and AC can be recommended as equal procedures regarding possible long-term effects such as preterm delivery or fetal growth restriction.


Writing this article was an interesting experience as it has co-authors from whom I learned a lot about clinical practise. I hope the results improve patients counselling concerning a sensitive subject the parents need to be informed about.
