INFERTILITY

Infertility is a disease that is affecting more and more couples (9 to 10%). It causes enormous suffering and brings difficulties in personal and family fulfilment and social inclusion.

This disease is studied and treated by gynecologists, but they often need cooperation from other areas, such as biology, endocrinology, andrology, genetics, psychology, etc. There are many treatments available and these should preferably be aimed at the causes or factors that cause infertility. To this end, some medical and surgical treatments allow a wide range of situations to be resolved, with special emphasis on the successes obtained with modern, minimally invasive, surgical techniques using endoscopy (laparoscopy and hysteroscopy).

In situations where the causes cannot be corrected, the problems can often be "overcome" and fertility achieved through the use of Medically Assisted Reproduction techniques (Intrauterine Insemination – IUI, in Vitro Fertilisation – IVF and Intracytoplasmic sperm injection - ICSI), which make it possible for us to resolve problems once thought to be insurmountable.

PRIMO VISION

CETI acquired the latest version of an equipment that works with time-lapse technology, the modern and complete Primo Vision Time-Lapse Embryo Monitoring System. Time-lapse technology with direct application to clinical embryology is a method that contributes for the non-invasive assessment of embryo quality, this allows a more meticulous selection of the best embryo to be transferred to the uterus. This system also contributes to a continuous observation of the embryos without any disturbances of embryo culture.

 

Some highlights of the Time-Lapse System are:

 

  • Better outcomes: this technology has the ambition to contribute to more satisfying success rates based on the analysis of high quality images. Furthermore, detailed monitoring of the embryos and more accurate assessments, like detecting events that are rarely observed through conventional microscopy, such as asynchronous division or relevant morphological changes are major contributions for embryo selection.

 

  • Minimising the stress on embryo culture: the monitoring system, placed inside of the incubators, avoids unnecessary mobilization of embryos and their exposure to light.
