The questions to our chief of the embryology department Marharyta Busova
- What are the classifications of the embryo in Ukraine?
There is Gardner classification in Ukraine that we use in ADONIS and also this one is popular in Europe. It has the numbers from 1 to 6 (size) and two letters: cells from which the embryo will develop and the letter that describes the cells from which the placenta will develop.
- What are the classification of the embrio in the US?
And the used in the US classification has: each embryo is given 2 letter grades along with a description of the level of expansion.
- What parameters according to the classifications are taking into consideration to choose the best embryo for the implantation?
We are looking for the embryos that are frozen on the 5th day, then we choose the embryo with the big X letter, which means that the shell of the embryo is well developed and is ready to be implanted. And the genetic testing was performed then we choose the embryo that is healthy to be the result of this test.
