Abstract

Introduction

To report the first case of live birth after double trophectoderm biopsy before and after vitrification on the same cohort of blastocyst in our knowledge.

Design

Case report.

Patient

A 36-year-old female with a history of 13 years of active married life for treatment of infertility.

Main outcome measure

Live birth after double trophectoderm biopsy.

Results

Double biopsy pre- and postvitrification and its positive outcome.

Conclusion

Preimplantation genetic screening and diagnosis (PGS/PGD), though an invasive procedure on the embryos, when done meticulously would not dampen the implantation potential of the embryo and second biopsy could be a feasible option to salvage embryos with inconclusive or suspected false-positive PGS/PGD reports.
