Pre - Implantation Genetic Screening or PGS
Pre – Implantation genetic screening is a reproductive technology used with an IVF cycle. This test can be useful as a screening method for chromosome abnormalities and other chromosomal structural changes
PGS is a procedure used prior to implantation to identify genetic defects within embryos created through in vitro fertilization before pregnancy. This helps in stopping certain disorders from being passed on to the child. PGS is currently an attractive option available for avoiding a high risk of having a child affected with a genetic disease prior to implantation
Steps in Pre – Implantation genetic screening :
- One or two cells are removed from the embryo.
- The cells are then evaluated to determine if the inheritance of a problematic gene is present in the embryo.
- Once the PGS procedure has been completed and embryos free of genetic problems have been recognized, the embryo will be transferred back in the uterus, and implantation will be attempted.
- Any extra embryos that are free of genetic troubles may be frozen for later use. The embryos with the problematic gene are destroyed.
