IVF with Preimplantation Check

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis is a technique which can be used during in vitro fertilization in order to screen embryos for genetic abnormalities before they are placed in the uterus. With this method, couples who are carriers of hereditary genetic diseases have a choice to implant only disease-free embryos. The methodology of PGD was developed in the late 1980s and was first applied in 1989 by a team of Hammersmith Hospital in London.
