The egg vitrification is a freezing technique that allows maximum cell survival (over 80%).
It is used in the following cases:
- Women with a family history of early menopause.
- Women who have to undergo surgery involving the ovarian tissue.
- Young oncological female patients before radiotherapy or chemotherapy treatment.
- Women who want to delay the pregnancy.
The ovarian stimulation, identical to that of in vitro fertilization, is performed. The eggs obtained in the follicular puncture are immediately vitrified. They are conserved during all the time it takes, frozen in the nitrogen liquid which does not affect its quality.
When pregnancy is desired they are unfrozen and fertilized in the laboratory. The final step is the transfer of embryos to the uterus.
Recombine Genetic Test:
- Alpha thalassemia
- Beta thalassemia
- Cystic Fibrosis
- Spinal muscular atrophy
- Haemoglobinopathies (4: Hb, C, D, E & O)
- 24 X-linked diseases (including fragile X syndrome)
- There is the possibility of performing the recombine test on the recipient and doing genetic matching with the potential donor, in order to rule out the transmission of 300 recessive genetic diseases.
