Efficacy

The success of our clinic measured in smiles! The consistency and excellent work of our experienced staff result in an extremely high percentage of successful fertilisation and births. The following statistical chart shows the rate of successful Assisting Nature therapies in relation to the age group of “sick” women.

 

A more accurate way of expressing the efficacy of an IVF Clinic, as well as the success of the Assisted Reproduction Technique is the Cumulative Rate. In particular, Cumulative Positive hCG rate is determined by oocyte retrieval event and the total number of the resulting embryos (COMFETTI pregnancy rate*). This is considered necessary because of two reasons. Firstly, the embryo survival after the cryopreservation (vitrification) reaches nowadays excellent rates. In addition, the modern trends of Assisted Reproduction Technology tend to avoid embryotransfer in a fresh cycle. As a result, the embryos are cryopreserved in order to get transferred in future natural cycles, when the endometrium will approach its natural condition, free from the disruption caused by the hormones of the ovarian stimulation. In this way, the woman can have two or three embryotransfers, avoiding the medicines, until the desired result is obtained, but with significant higher chances of success.

Worldwide, our IVF Unit is one of the first clinics that has adopted this new Freeze All Strategy and along with constant research proves that in special types of patients, such as women who produce a high number of oocytes, or show high progesterone levels, cryopreservation of all the embryos followed by an embryotransfer in a future cycle, and not in the stimulation cycle, increases the chances of pregnancy and live birth.

As you can conclude by the following diagram, applying the Freeze All Blastocyst Strategy our IVF Unit can achieve a Cumulative Live Birth rate of 57,4% in women under 40 years old, after only ONE ovarian stimulation. *COMFFETI: Combined Fresh and Frozen Embryo Transfer per Individual
