Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis

Introduction

The first PGD pregnancy in Spain was achieved in 1994 in our hospital in collaboration with the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) to prevent the conception of a child with haemophilia in a couple where the mother was a carrier of the disease. Since then many couples have benefited from this technique. 

In July 2006, our Obstetrics Department together with the Biomedical Division of the company Sistemas Genómicos achieved the first Multiple Hereditary Exostosis-free pregnancy in the world, using the Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis technique.
