In-vitro fertilization (IVF) center of Kent Hospital with the title of “Baby-friendly” hospital has been in service since 2004 the year of foundation of the hospital. Izmir Kent Hospital having one of the most experienced in-vitro fertilization team is preferred not only by Izmir but also the whole country thanks to high success rate.
It is intended with the in-vitro fertilization treatment for the couples not being able to have a child by natural ways that reproduction cells of man and woman are inseminated at laboratory environment under special conditions and holding of the baby in the uterus. Babies being born by in-vitro fertilization method are not different from babies being born by natural methods.
Reasons of not having a baby of the couples applying to Kent Hospital in-vitro fertilization center with the desire of having a baby are determined with general health tests, hormone analysis (basal hormone profile), semen analysis (spermiogram), immunological tests if necessary, uterus X-ray and uterus examination (if necessary) following the diagnosis. Then treatment options are determined.
- Ovaluation Induction
- Intra Uterine Insemination
- In-vitro fertilization (IVF-ET)
- Microinjection (ICSI-ET – Mini test tube baby)
Semen analysis and examination is carried out for the male patients and if necessary hormone profile is assessed and advanced sperm function tests are performed.
Moreover, sperms are subjected to preparations for intrauterine insemination and micromanipulation. Examination and ultrasonography are performed for the female patients and hormone analysis is certainly requested.
Artificial insemination is carried out at insemination room, assisted reproduction treatment methods such as micro injection (ICSIET) and in-vitro fertilization (IVF-ET) are carried out at embryology laboratory, diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic surgical procedures are carried out at the operating room under general anesthesia or all of sperm obtaining procedures with microsurgery (TESE,TESA, MESA, TEFNA, etc.) are carried out at the operating room under local or general anesthesia.
Oocyte pick-up is performed at the operating room under general anesthesia and oocyte is assessed at the embryology laboratory. Embryo cultures and follow-up is carried out at proper incubators. If necessary, assisted hatching procedure can be applied to embryo membrane with laser. Embryo transfer is carried out on day 2, 3, 5 or 6 by the condition of the patient and quality of the embryo. Diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy operations (laparoscopy and histeroscopy) cyst aspiration by vaginal route, fetal reduction in multiple pregnancies, amniosynthesis, sperm collecting by surgery or microsurgery. At the freezing room, embryo and testicle tissue, ovary tissue is frozen.
Patients are followed at the observation room after the procedures and patients with stabile conditions can go to home after 2-3 hours follow-up.
Routine follow-up, antenatal and perinatal genetic (amniosynthesis, chorionic villus sampling, cordocentesis) tests of pregnant patients and delivery are carried out at the same center.
