Oasis clinical head Dr Sujatha Vellanki has said that the clinic has successfully helped two couples get fertility with the help of pre implantation genetic screening, Vitrified Donor Oocytes system. Dr Sujatha said the new system is very fruitful and is giving good results to the couples.
She also said that the embryos are tested first for identification of genetic problems and later it will be used for the fertility. Talking to reporters at the clinic, she said a large number of people are facing infertility problem and it can be solved by using advanced medical systems.
Donor embryos can be successfully preserved at the Oasis clinic and can be used for the fertility. Pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS) facility available in the clinic is designed to examine embryos for chromosomal abnormalities and use for the fertility, she said.
She further added that the PGS aims at improving pregnancy and live birth rates by screening the embryos for chromosomal abnormalities and only implanting chromosomally normal embryos. According to her, embryos that do not implant could be due to an incorrect number of chromosomes.
