According to statistics, out of over 200,000 newborns annually, over 10,000 have congenital malformations. Congenital malformations are one of the leading causes of death among newborns and can strain family relationships, which has negative consequences for both the development of children with malformations and for other family members.
The triple test is a special analysis that provides a series of information on the congenital development of the baby and is very important in detecting Down syndrome, Edwards syndrome, trisomy 18 as well as other possible congenital malformations that may occur during pregnancy.
The investigation is called a triple test because it determines three biochemical parameters in the blood of the future mother. If the values are lower or higher than normal, the prospective mother must carry out further investigations to confirm the suspected anomaly.
