A European study of nearly 3000 patients confirmed the safety of freezing using the vitrification method and transferring cryopreserved embryos. The study of over 1000 live births from frozen embryo transfers and nearly 2000 live births from fresh embryo transfers revealed no differences in outcomes for the offspring. The study particularly focused on major congenital malformations […]
Cryopreservation: What is it?
Cryopreservation (freezing) of embryos has been associated with IVF since its inception in the 1908’s. The use of Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) has resulted greater than 150,000 health births worldwide. The availability of freezing viable human embryos is a necessary and desirable process. Cryopreservation indirectly allows for the control of how many embryos can be […]
