OPEN SPINA BIFIDA - The maternal serum AFP is NOT elevated for a pregnancy of this gestational age. The risk of an open neural tube defect is less than the screening cut-off. TRISOMY 18 - These serum marker levels are not consistent with the pattern seen in Trisomy 18 pregnancies. Maternal serum screening will detect approximately 60% of Trisomy 18 pregnancies.
