Accuracy of the CVS Test. Chorionic villus sampling is more than 99 percent accurate when it comes to diagnosing chromosomal results, such as Down syndrome. However, there's a sliver of a chance for a false positive—when the test comes back indicating a genetic problem, but in reality, the baby is developing normally.
Hi, the filtered prbc transfusion contains same amount of iron as without filter. Filter are not for reduction of iron. It is used to reduce transfusion associated fever, shivering and to reduce late effect of alloimunisation, a complications which leads to future blood transfusion ineffective. For iron overload, one need to take regular oral medicine (chelation therapy). Hope it clears the confusion.
