UNIT OF REPRODUCTIVE MEDICINE

UNIT OF REPRODUCTIVE MEDICINE is based in a designated area of LETO Maternity Hospital, at a fully functional area with special utilities from air conditioning to lab equipment.

Our aim, along with our 20 years IVF operating experience, is to follow field ongoing developments by renewing and modernizing our equipment and continuous training of our staff.

Our scientific team of OB/GYNs and embryologists evaluates each couple separetely and provides individualized solutions.

We try to identify the cause of infertility problem and recommend the most appropriate and feasible solution leading to a speedier resolution of the problem by limiting, at the same time, the biological, social, psychological and economic burden of the infertile couple.

Our unit holds a EN ISO 9001:2008 quality assurance certification.

Sperm DNA Fragmentation

katakermatismos dna
 

One of the most modern techniques is the analysis of the number of chromosomes and DNA sperm quality. These two techniques may give us additional useful information, which is not given by a simple semen analysis regarding sperm quality - in case any problems are detected at both chromosome (chromosome number detection) and DNA level (fragmentation-apoptosis).

Increased sperm percentage with an abnormal number of chromosomes and an increased percentage of apoptotic-pathological sperm infertility consists an important indicator and possible cause of multiple IVF failures effort (lower clinical pregnancy rate and increased miscarriage rates).

There is also the case of increased DNA fragmentation in semen samples with normal sperm parameters (number, motility, morphology), but this is not common.

Despite its usefulness, the method is not applied in all cases except in:

  • cases of oligo- or terato- spermia;
  • cases eggs are not fertilized;
  • cases of unexplained infertility;
  • cases of multiple miscarriages and biochemical pregnancies.
