Controlled Ovarian Stimulation is a part of the treatment in assisted reproductive procedures like IUI and IVF or ICSI. Fertility Medications are used to stimulate ovaries to develop and produce multiple eggs to increase the pregnancy rates.
IVF is a process of stimulating the ovaries with a combination of fertility medications and retrieving eggs from ovarian follicles. After fertilizing the oocytes in the laboratory, the embryos are transferred into the uterine cavity.
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection refers to a technique in which a single healthy sperm is injected directly into the cytoplasm of a mature oocyte. Using ICSI, thousands of severely affected infertile males have become genetic fathers.
TESE– Testicular Sperm Extraction involves a small incision and snipping off some tissue from inside the testicle. TESE is a fertility treatment that involves surgical retrieval of sperm, and the use of retrieved sperm for ICSI.
Preimplantation genetic tests - PGD/PGT is a technique used in reproductive medicine to diagnose genetic disorders before they are transferred to the uterus and thus enable selection of unaffected three-day or five-day embryos for uterine transfer.
Ultrasound-guided embryo transfer is the process of placing the embryos in the uterus using ultrasound imaging guidance. Significant improvement in implantation rate was observed following the use of ultrasound guided embryo transfer.
Krishna IVF Clinic is the first infertility centre with integrated genetics department in early 2005 in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Krishna IVF Clinic provides Cytogenetics and Molecular Genetics diagnostic services.
Obstetrics is the field of study concentrated on pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period. Obstetrics deals with pregnancy, its associated procedures and complications. Obstetricians provides care for the fetus and mother.
Time-lapse monitoring is a technology for evaluation of embryo morphology and developmental kinetics over time without removing the embryo from the incubator. Geri is an innovative incubator that provide optimal incubation conditions for embryos.
Metabolomics is the large-scale study of small molecules, known as metabolites, within cells, biofluids, tissues or organisms. It is an emerging field and is defined as the comprehensive measurement of all metabolites in a biological specimen.
Polscope is a very advanced technique where a highly specialized microscope is used to check for placement of the spindle in the egg before the eggs are injected with sperm. It is a proven revolutionary tool for assessing the meiotic spindle.
The breakthrough of ART in recent scientific history has allowed couples who were unable to conceive previously to achieve a viable pregnancy. Although ART has improved outcomes, the success rates are not 100% in one cycle.
Assisted hatching is an advanced scientific technique that involves a laser to thin the outer layer of the egg (called the zona). It can help an embryo implant in the uterus, leading to higher pregnancy rates in some patients.
Recurrent Pregnancy Loss is defined as the loss of three or more consecutive pregnancies and needs investigations. Human reproduction is remarkably inefficient; nearly 70% of human conceptions do not survive to live birth.
Intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection (IMSI) is a sperm selection method used in ICSI. The technique involves using a microscope to view sperm under very high magnification which allows to view detailed images of sperm.
VIDAS is a fully automated immunoassay system based on the proven and robust Enzyme Linked Fluorescent Assay technology that makes VIDAS a gold standard worldwide, for high quality on-demand blood tests and hormone assays.
The cold-chain medications used in Infertility clinics are expensive and very sensitive to heat and light. A strict cold chain should be maintained right from the production till the end of the supply chain and for the patient usage.
Testicular Sperm Extraction is performed for people with azoospermia or the absence of sperm in semen. The procedure is generally planned for assisted reproduction, just at the beginning and some places on the day of egg pick up.
