Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Structural Rearrangements (PGT-SR)

Diagnostic Use

Usually one partner is known to carry a structural rearrangement which, if passed in an unbalanced form to their children, would result in a severe genetic disorder.

If PGT-SR is appropriate for a couple it is usually recommended by the Clinical Genetics service, and the couple is referred to a fertility clinic who will arrange the Feasibility Testing and the IVF treatment.

In most cases PGT-SR is funded, although there may be a waiting list to begin the process.
