Chorionic Villus Sampling
by Cathy Parkes October 01, 2020 Updated: December 29, 2021
Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS) is a procedure used to identify chromosomal abnormalities in the fetus. During CVS, a small sample of placenta tissue is removed from the uterus.
Key Advantage of CVS: CVS is done earlier (~10-12 weeks gestation) vs. amniocentesis (~15 weeks gestation), so it provides an EARLIER diagnosis.
