Preimplantation diagnostics with embryonic medicine center


Preimplantation diagnosis is a very early prenatal diagnosis that allows eliminating embryos carrying genetic abnormalities before being transferred into the womb.

Indications

This will be performed both to fertile and infertile patients.

Fertile patients: Patients having diseases related to gene mutations

  • Beta-thalassemia
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Hemophilia
  • Duchenne muscular dystrophy
  • Other

Infertile patients:

  • Aged patients and repeated failures when performing assisted fecundation (more risk of aneuploidy)
  • Embryo multi-nucleation

Procedure:

If the embryo has been obtained by classic ICSI or FIV, two blastomeres from an embryo of eight cells are taken. After that, the genetic analysis of these blastomeres is made, following PCR (Polimerase Chain Reaction) or FISH (Fluorescent in situ hybridization).
