Preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) is a method that enables genetic testing of the developing embryo before implantation in the woman’s uterus. Using PGT, embryos with genetic disorders are excluded, which can be at the level of chromosomal anomalies (translocation, aneuploidy, other structural rearrangements of chromosomes) or it is a disorder of one gene, i.e. a monogenic disease.
The aim of this testing is to select a genetically healthy embryo for transfer to the uterus and thereby increase the chances of successful implantation. This method can help us eliminate the cause of possible IVF failure.
