  • The relationship between pronuclear morphology on the one hand, and embryo development and chromosomal status on the other, was evaluated in 68 couples scheduled to undergo preimplantation genetic diagnosis because of advanced maternal age or recurrent implantation failure. Zygotes were grouped according to their pronuclear (PN) morphology. During the period from fertilization to embryo transfer, cleavage rate, embryo quality, blastocyst formation and results of the chromosomal analysis of 240… CONTINUE READING
