Percutaneous umbilical cord blood sampling pubs, also called cordocentesis, sampling of fetal blood, or the fence of the umbilical vein is a diagnostic genetic test that examines blood from the umbilical cord of the fetus to detect fetal abnormalities. Nutrition of the fetus and the mothers blood generally is associated in womb with one vein and two arteries of the fetus. The umbilical vein is responsible for delivering oxygen-rich blood to the fetus from the mother, in the umbilical artery is responsible for removing low oxygen blood from the fetus. This allows the tissues of the fetus properly watered. Pubs provides a means of rapid chromosome analysis and is useful when information cannot be obtained through amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling, or ultrasound, or if the results of these tests were inconclusive, this test carries a significant risk of complications and usually reserved for pregnancies identified as high risk for a genetic defect. It has been used with mothers with immune thrombocytopenic purpura with.
