Gardner Trophectoderm Grading in ART Compass | The Mobile App for IVF Practice Management
embryo grading is a critical step in the in-vitro fertilization (IVF) process, and the Gardner trophoectoderm grading system is one of the most commonly used methods. The system was first described in the early 1990s and has since been refined and validated in multiple studies.
The Gardner trophoectoderm grading system is based on four parameters:
- Cell number
- Regularity of blastomere contours
Each parameter is given a score of 0-2, for a total possible score of 8.
The Gardner trophoectoderm grading system has been shown to be a reliable predictor of embryo implantation potential and live birth rates. In a large retrospective study of over 5,000 IVF cycles, embryos with a Gardner trophoectoderm grade of 6-8 had significantly higher implantation and live birth rates than those with a grade of 5 or less.
The Gardner trophoectoderm grading system is a valuable tool for IVF clinicians, and the ART Compass mobile app is the perfect tool for keeping track of embryos and their grades. With ART Compass, you can easily record and track embryo grades, as well as manage all other aspects of your IVF practice.
