Does the parental origin of translocation impact rates of abnormal embryos?

      Phenotypically normal patients with balanced translocations often seek pre-implantation genetic diagnostic testing to prevent transmission of an unbalanced translocation to offspring. This is a unique subgroup of patients who are at increased risk for suboptimal outcomes including clinical pregnancy loss which may be associated with chromosomally abnormal embryos. The goal of the present analysis is to determine whether the parental origin of the translocation impacts the degree of embryonic aneuploidy.
