Fertility Specialist Svitlana Shiyanova Visited One of the Best European Clinics
Chief at Infertility Treatment Department, Fertility Specialist Svitlana Shiyanova participated in a workshop which took place at Repromeda, one of Europe's best reproductive clinics in Brno, Czech Republic. The goal of this event was to provide insight into clinic’s operating practices and its advanced IVF programs.
During the 3-day visit, Svitlana Shiyanova had an opportunity to learn about the operating practices and approaches implemented at the Czech clinic, ranging from arrangement of the treatment process to detailed information about genetic and embryological stages of IVF cycles.Repromeda Reproductive Health and Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis Facility is one of the best European health care institutions specializing in IVF programs that use a number of the latest preimplantation genetic diagnosis techniques. These are Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS), Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) through the application of next-generation sequencing, as well as Karyomapping which is advanced ultra-sensitive diagnostics used for all single-gene disorders.
Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis by means of Karyomapping method was introduced at Repromeda in early 2014. It was the first laboratory which started performing these tests in Europe.“Potential and specific nature of genetic laboratory at Repromeda Health Care Facility allows to pursue research not only for the Czech health care centers,” Svitlana Shiyanova shares her recent experience. “I was particularly impressed by Professor Pavel Travnik, who was in the team of embryologists who worked on IVF procedure, as a result of which the first baby was born in Czechoslovakia (1982). The professor presented his approach to operating and quality control practices at embryology laboratory. Also, in the course of the face-to-face conversation, we had a chance to exchange accumulated experience and discuss current approaches with respect to embryological aspects of IVF programs."
ISIDA Clinic aims to provide its patients with a consistently high level of health care services. We have especially high standards and requirements to in vitro fertilization and other assisted reproductive technologies, the most science-driven area of clinic’s operation. This is why doctors at ISIDA Clinic attend world-class conferences and workshops, undertake internships and trainings in the world’s largest reproductive clinics on a regular basis.
Thanks to this approach, in November 2016, ISIDA Clinic was among the first in Ukraine to introduce NGS, the most precise method of embryo diagnostics which allows to detect chromosomal disorders with an accuracy to 99% and virtually eliminate the risk of having a baby with chromosomal abnormalities. Chief at Infertility Treatment Department, Fertility Specialist Svitlana Shiyanova constantly participates in various workshops and internship programs in the leading Ukrainian and European clinics speak at the largest research and practice conferences and congresses.
