Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates Celebrates First Birth in North Texas from Advanced Trophectoderm Biopsy Screening Technology
Date:12/18/2012

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) December 18, 2012

Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates announces one of North Texas’ first live births with blastocyst embryo biopsy, an emerging technology used to screen embryos for chromosomal abnormalities before embryo transfer in an in vitro fertilization cycle.

This method uses an advanced laser system to create an opening in the outer shell of an embryo, then to remove cells from the “trophectoderm,” the outer part of a blastocyst (5-day old embryo) that ultimately develops into the placenta. A trophectoderm biopsy of the blastocyst significantly improves the chances for conception for parents experiencing infertility compared to other embryo biopsy technologies.

“The success of this pregnancy signifies the viability of trophectoderm biopsy as another resource to help couples achieve their parenthood dreams,” explained Dr. Sam Chantilis, medical director of Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates.

In the current case, Dr. Chantillis was working with a couple that had specific concerns about a sex-linked genetic abnormality. Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates utilized the trophectoderm biopsy to look for healthy female embryos before performing the transfer.

“It was important that this patient and her husband not have to worry about passing on any genetic disorders to their children,” said Dr. Chantilis.

With the trophectoderm biopsy, embryologists can perform a thorough genetic analysis of multiple cells on five-day-old embryos. In the past, technicians could only assess the genetic material of one cell from an embryo on the third day after IVF egg retrieval.
