Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD): comprehensive chromosome screening

Pre-implantacional genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a technique used to detect genetic or chromosomal abnormalities and it is performed on the embryo prior to transfer to the mother’s uterus.
Its use is recommended in couples where one of the partners is a carrier of a genetic or chromosomal abnormality that either means they are unable to get pregnant or increases the risk of pregnancy loss or abnormalities in their children. In some cases, it is the only means of having biologically healthy children and, in others, it is an alternative to prenatal diagnosis. […]

PGD, PGS, CCS and PGT-A: are they all one and the same?

PGD or pre-implantation genetic diagnosis consists of a set of techniques used on the embryo prior to transfer to the mother’s uterus with the aim of studying any possible chromosomal and/or genetic abnormalities. Its purpose is to ensure that children are born healthy and put an end to the transmission of a given condition to offspring.
Huge steps forward in the analysis of embryo abnormalities have been made in the 21st century. The range of options in diagnosis as well as the reliability of the techniques have turned something that was a pipe dream only a few years ago into a reality. These techniques are now routine and Instituto Bernabeu is a worldwide leading entity in providing its patients with the latest developments in embryo genetic diagnosis. […]

Avoiding multiple pregnancy: Why is it important to avoid pregnancy of twins or triplets?

Multiple pregnancy is, along with ovarian hyperstimulation, the most significant complication in fertility treatments.
Most couples that go through assisted reproduction techniques consider multiple pregnancies to be desirable or the lesser evil. However, pregnancies of twins and even more so triplets are associated with a series of complications that challenge the pregnancy ending in the birth of a healthy baby. Let us not forget that the birth of a healthy baby is the only objective of assisted reproductive techniques. […]

Indications of Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) is a new technique used in Reproductive Medicine and is one of the main sources of innovation and research. PGD allows embryos to be selected from assisted reproduction cycles and tested for certain genetic or chromosomal abnormalitybefore being transferred to the womb.
