- Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS) has been used in clinical practice for more than 15 years with the goal of increasing live birth rates after IVF. In this thesis it is shown that PGS in its current form instead decreases live birth rates after IVF. Reasons for its inefficacy are provided and new forms of PGS and the role of embryo selection in the near future of IVF are being discussed.
