Tests préimplantatoires de l’embryon en médecine de reproduction

Abstract Preimplantation genetic testing avoids the transmission of monogenic diseases or structural chromosome abnormality to the offspring in fertile couples. Furthermore, it allows screening for aneuploidies (PGT-A, Preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy), with the aim of selecting one euploid embryo before transfer in infertile couples undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF). Indeed, aneuploidies are frequent and explain most IVF failures and early miscarriages. The indications for PGT-A remain controversial, due to the lack of clear evidence of improved outcomes after IVF. Cost-effectiveness studies and follow-up of neonatal outcomes are needed. Finally, each situation requires counseling taking into account ethical considerations.
