Revisions to Guidelines for Embryo Transfers
PFC has been a pioneer in enabling patients to have just a single embryo transferred at a time, through the use of genetic testing and freezing of embryos for later use. At PFC we elect to transfer one embryo in over 90% of patients and our twin rate is 6%. Nationally, clinics perform elective single embryo transfer in less than 30% of patients. North America has consistently had the highest multiple pregnancy rates in the world but this is changing and should continue to change with the new guidelines for number of embryos to transfer.
The Milan Debate
The Embryology Lab at Pacific Fertility Center has a world-wide reputation as a provider of top quality embryology services. PFC is recognized as an innovator in the best methods to help build families, one healthy baby at a time. Visitors from around the world come to learn the skills our embryologists have developed. We welcome the opportunity to share what we have learned. Last year, following a visit from 2 Italian embryologists I was invited to participate in a meeting in Milan on the subject of recurrent implantation failure (RIF).
