Expert Answer:

Chorionic villus sampling (CVS) is a new technique which can be used during the 8th to 10th week of pregnancy when abortion is safe for the woman. For CVS, cells are sucked into a catheter passed through the vagina and cervix. This technique provides a mass of rapidly dividing foetal cells, thus facilitating the examination of chromosomal disorders.
