FMF research - NFZ

We run a Prenatal Screening Programme according to FMF standard under the contract of the National Health Fund. Non-invasive tests are performed free of charge - ultrasound in combination with biochemical tests. In case of indications resulting from a specific risk, there is a possibility of an invasive diagnostics (amniocentesis with genetic testing of fluid and genetic counseling).

The tests can be performed in insured persons with a referral with a specific criterion to the Prenatal Screening Programme:

  • The patient must have a referral from a gynaecologist. Referrals from a private gynaecologist's surgery are also accepted.
  • With the result, i.e. the analysis of the risk of genetic defects, the patient should go to the doctor in charge of the pregnancy.
  • The number of tests is limited in accordance with the contract concluded with the National Health Fund.

Criteria for inclusion in the programme:

  • Age over 35
  • A previous pregnancy with a chromosomal aberration of the fetus or baby
  • Detection of structural chromosome aberrations in the pregnant woman or father
  • Identifying a significantly higher risk of having a child affected by a monogenetic or multifactorial condition
  • Abnormal ultrasound or biochemical findings during pregnancy indicating an increased risk of chromosomal aberration or fetal malformation

In the first trimester of pregnancy:

  • Prenatal ultrasound 11-13 (+6 days) week of pregnancy
  • Double test (PAPP-A, beta-hCG)

Genetic counselling includes medical history taking into account the genetic history, evaluation and interpretation of the results of the tests performed and a decision on further procedure (in the case of medical indications, referral for invasive tests after the patient's consent to their performance)

For ultrasound examinations in the first trimester of pregnancy (11-14 weeks) the patient should have a filled bladder. It is not necessary to be fasting for the blood laboratory test.

In the second trimester of pregnancy:

  • Prenatal ultrasound 18-23 weeks of pregnancy
