Chromosomal Microarray (CMA)
The most common cause of spontaneous abortion is numerical
chromosome imbalances (aneuploidies), particularly of
chromosomes 13, 14, 15, 16, 18, 21, 22, and X.
Due to high birth rate in India almost half a millions babies are
born annually with malformations the figure for Down
Syndrome(trisomy21) is 1 per 800 births.
Aneuploidies of 5 particular chromosomes (13, 18, 21, X, Y)
account for 80% to 95% of clinically relevant cytogenetic
abnormalities that lead to congenital birth defects.
More than 50% of first trimester spontaneous abortions are
due to chromosomal abnormalities.
