Assisted hatching is a laboratory technique that consists of making a small hole in the zona pellucida, the membrane surrounding the embryo, in order to make it easier for the embryo to hatch out (something that naturally needs to happen) and implant in the uterus. […]
Successfully treating implantation failure and recurrent pregnancy loss is undoubtedly a challenge for doctors and for patients.
It is an area on which we continuously focus research at Instituto Bernabeu and, whilst we are far from finding a solution to all problems, the number of couples we are able to successfully treat is forever increasing.
An approach which does not take all 3 parties into account – the female, the male and the embryo – is incomplete. When evaluation only takes the couple into account, the reason behind the issue is only determined in under 20% of all cases. […]
At Instituto Bernabeu, we have developed a specific programme with protocols designed to treat repeated miscarriages and unsuccessful assisted reproduction treatments through the multidisciplinary approach that allows us to diagnose and therefore overcome these problems.
