PGS/PGD

The Centre for Reproductive Genetics of iVF Riga clinic is currently the only one in the Baltic countries offering preimplantation genetic testing or screening (PGS) of embryos and Preimplantation 
Genetic Diagnosis (PGD).

Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS) – Chromosomal analysis

Simultaneous testing of the entire set of chromosomes of an embryo on the day 5 of development by aCGH (array Comparative Genomic Hybridization) on microchips before the embryo is transferred into the uterus.

Indications:

  • Repeated failed IVF cycles 
  • Pregnancy occurs, but then repeatedly interrupted or stopped (miscarriages)
  • Changes in the parental karyotype (Robertsonian, reciprocal translocations or chromosomal mosaicism)
  • Age after 40 years

In such cases, embryos with an altered chromosome set often develop, which are not able to be implanted into the uterus or stop in their development in the early stages of pregnancy.

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) – the examination of monogenic hereditary diseases (which appeared because of changes in a single gene). 

Indications:

  • Confirmed monogenic hereditary diseases, which are transmitted from generation to generation;
  • A similar disease has already detected in one of the children

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) is the unique method, offered by iVF Riga Clinic. If a woman or a man has a disease on gene level, it is possible to define the precise localization of the problem and examine both the chromosome and the gene level to exclude such health problems for the unborn child.
