Abstract:

Since the advent of preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy (PGT-A) in the 1990s, substantial changes in test methodology and technology now allow the detection and reporting of intermediate chromosome copy number (commonly referred to as mosaicism) for aneuploidy in a trophectoderm biopsy sample. Clinicians are grappling with how to interpret such findings and how to counsel patients about embryo transfer decision-making. This document reviews the available literature and outlines the various issues surrounding the reporting of intermediate copy number and consideration of storage or transfer of blastocysts with intermediate copy number results. This document does not endorse, nor does it suggest that PGT-A is appropriate for all cases of in vitro fertilization.
