|[en] Aims: The purpose of this study was to define the most suitable cut-off point for fetal nuchal translucency thickness in a screening program for aneuploidy and trisomy 21 in the south of Vietnam.
<br />Material & Methods: Two thousand and five hundred cases of singleton pregnancies were followed prospectively from the first trimester to the delivery. The rate of aneuploidy was calculated by seeking a relationship to increased fetal nuchal translucency thickness then calculating the sensitivity and specificity of different cut-off points in thickness measurement to find the most suitable point for screening.
<br />Results: The prevalence of fetal abnormality was 1.5% (95% CI 1.1–2.1), and 1.2% (95% CI 0.8–1.7) of aneuploidy cases found and the commonest was trisomy 21. A cut-off point at 2.4 mm showed the highest level of sensitivity and specificity for the detection of aneuploidy (65.5 and 95.7%) and trisomy 21 (75.0 and 95.1%), with a false-positive rate of 4.3 and 4.9%, respectively.
<br />Conclusion: Using a cut-off point of nuchal translucency at 2.4 mm has potential for aneuploidy and trisomy 21 screening in the south of Vietnam.
