Future direction of pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD)

by Somjate Manipalviratn, M.D.| Superior A.R.T

Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH)

A significant proportion of unsuccessful pregnancy is caused by numerical chromosome imbalance or aneuploidy supported by the evidence that >50% of fif irst trimester abortuses are aneuploidy. FISH was introduced to reveal aneuploidy in embryos in order to improve the pregnancy success. However, whether PGD using FISH technique will improve pregnancy rate of IVF treatmentcycle is still controversial due to its limitation in the number of chromosome studied. This is limited by the number of distinct fluorochromes which are available to label the DNA probes.

PGD-PCR success for VHL disease : A case report from Superior A.R.T.

by Piyaphan Punyatanasakchai, M.D. | Superior A.R.T.

Abstract : Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) is a rare autosomal dominant genetic condition involving the abnormal growth of blood vessels result in little knots which are called angiomas or hemangioblastomas in some parts of the body which are particularly rich in blood vessels such as in the cerebellum, spinal cord, kidney and retina. These abnormal vessels usually occur in the retina. As a result, loss of visions is very common. Some of these tumors are benign, while others are cancerous.

There is a wide variation in the age of onset of the disease, the organ system affected and the severity of effect. This disease is caused by mutation of the Von Hipple-Lindau tumor suppressor (VHL) gene on the short arm of chromosome 3. About 80% of cases were inherited this mutation gene from one of their parents. ICSI and Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) with PCR technique is a method to avoid VHL gene transmission from the parents to the child. A 37 years old healthy woman and her 37 years old husband who has experienced multiple organ tumors from VHL has come to Superior ART to consult about their plan to have unaffected child(ren) since last year. They have one child, 2 years old, who also has got VHL mutated gene transmitted from his father.

IVF Treatment in Argentina

I must say our trip to Argentina was much better than we could have expected. Buenos Aires and the surrounding area’s we visited were wonderful. Most people spoke English and were very helpful. And those who didn’t speak it still attempted to be of assistance. It was also very easy to get around, mostly by walking but the bus system was good. (I must say the wine was great!!)

Patient Walks Again: Jordan Hospital & Medical Center Continues History of Excellence

by PlacidWay | Denise Wang

Adijat suffered from years of low back pain, limiting movement, mobility, and her quality of life. Experiencing left thigh numbness, she also experienced incontinence and digestive issues.  Getting around proved increasingly difficult and pain was a constant reminder of her limitations. Adijat could no longer participate and engage in daily life, but was forced to watch the world go by from her wheelchair.

Seeking the best in neurosurgery care, Adijat accessed PlacidWay, an increasingly popular and growing international medical tourism portal based in Denver, Colorado from her home in the Nigeria to seek out solutions for her medical issues. After careful research, Adijat decided to venture to the Jordan Hospital & Medical Center in the hopes they could help her regain relief from pain and at least a modicum of mobility.
Adijat traveled to Jordan in a wheelchair and returned back home on her feet.

Commitment to Excellence at the Jordan Hospital & Medical Center
Hashem Irshaid, International Medical Tourism Marketing and Quality Consultant at the Jordan Hospital, was pleased, to say the least. “Jordan Hospital & Medical Center is a JCI accredited hospital compliant with the International Society for Quality and Healthcare and is ISO certified.  Our goal is to provide quality, excellent and experienced care in neural and cardiovascular surgical procedures, transplant procedures and reconstructive surgery in multiple fields.”

Adijat is just one of many who have passed through the doors of the Jordan Hospital & Medical Center for superlative care and effective treatments and procedures. After undergoing decompressive laminectomy, bilateral thoracic, lumbar screw fixation and lumbar vertebroplasty, Adijat was thrilled to find she could walk again and that her pain had considerably decreased.  After suffering for years, Adijat returned to her home in November 2009 on her own two feet.
