Description

Extensively illustrated, this atlas is a manual for the establishment and realization of PGD within the framework of assisted reproduction and genetics services. Fully revised and updated, the atlas includes descriptions of the authors' pioneering work on polar body based PGD for genetic and chromosomal disorders. The authors' novel experience of PGD for late-onset disorders with genetic predisposition will be of special interest. Their accumulated PGD experience for poor-prognosis IVF patients presents further evidence of the improvement of clinical outcome and the requirement for meiotic error testing for a higher accuracy of preselecting aneuploidy-free embryos for transfer.

Reviews

Praise for the First Edition:

"The Atlas is technically detailed and beautifully illustrated."

—Joy Delhanty, Journal of Medical Genetics

"The book's raison d'etre is its 119 pages of color illustrations. Too effusive praise cannot be given for these illustrations … the book should be on the shelf of every prenatal genetic and IVF unit."

—Joe Leigh Simpson, Fertility and Sterility

"An extraordinary documentation on chromosomal analysis with the fluorescent in situ hybridization technique … yields a clear picture of the current status of preimplantation genetic diagnosis … will certainly support embyologists, gynecologists, and andrologists in understanding the reationale of this approach."

Organon's Magazine on Women and Health

" … will enable the clinician to understand better the complexity of the task facing the laboratory professionals when a patient is referred for genetic diagnosis before the embryo implants."

—Journal of Medical Genetics
