On 23-24 January at the Istanbul, Turkey RI Hands on Workshop and Lectures, Violeta Fodina (gynaecological/obstetrician specialising in reproduction) and Evija Pimane (embryologist/biologist) discussed important/ relevant questions, such as: how important is IVF genetic analysis? Why can't patients with good quality embryos conceive and what is the fastest path from scientific discoveries in genetics, to achieving results.
Can a couple, who has already ended two or three treatment cycles, get baby pregnant?
A negative result after IVF can be assiciated with chromosome structure, or genetic mutations, and aneuploidy.
The best results a patient can get by getting a biopsy from 5-6 day old embryos, is by conducting molecular analyses (aCGH – array Comparative Genomic Hybridization). At first, the biopsies are done emryo trophectoderm biopsy, after that the samples of the trophectoderm are stored and sent to analysis. Embryos are frozen for the next cycle, which is done after the results of the aCGH.
The genetic analysis IVF will allow us to get positive results soon after the first cycle of treatment, excluding failed attempts and termination of pregnancy after embryo transfer.
