Reduction in the Chance of Having a Child with the Translocation
Our personnel have performed the most procedures of PGD of translocations, 295 cycles up to August 2003. Normal or balanced embryos were available to be transferred to the patient in the majority of cycles.

Pregnancy occurred in up to 40% of the cycles with transfer, depending on the Fertility Center were the cycle was performed.
None of the delivered babies has been found to have an unbalanced translocation.

Reduction in Pregnancy Losses
The PGD procedure significantly reduces the chance of pregnancy loss.

The patients who achieved pregnancy after PGD had experienced miscarriage in the majority (>90%) of their previous pregnancies. When these same patients underwent PGD, fewer than 10% of pregnancies were miscarried.

This is a significant reduction in pregnancy losses.
