Procedure Developed at Laniado’s IVF Unit Greeted
with Great Interest at Israel Fertility Association Conference

Laniado unique worldwide in implanting embryo on fourth day after egg retrievalFertility conference

Since 1978, five million babies around the world have been born through in-vitrio-fertilization – over 37,000 of them in Israel in the last year alone.  
The procedure is a delicate one, with the date of implantation of the embryo after the egg is  retrieved critical to both fetus survival and development as well as the formation of defects.   A successful procedure requires the initial development of the embryo under laboratory conditions on the one hand and its continued development under natural uterine conditions as soon as possible, on the other.

2017 data for Laniado’s Maternity Department:

The Mother is at the Center and Can Choose How to Give Birth

Laniado has lowest rate of C-sections in OECDbaby1
Some 8,000 babies entered the world over the course of the past year in Laniado Hospital’s Maternity Department, according to recently released data for 2017.  The statistics further revealed that only 15.8% of the births were performed by Caesarean section, compared with a national average of 17.8%.  Furthermore, 77.4% of the women who gave birth to their first baby by C-section were subsequently able to have normal deliveries (VBAC births) at Laniado – compared with the national average of 73.3%.  And 58.5% of the women who underwent two Caesarean sections subsequently succeeded in giving birth normally.  This data is particularly impressive given the fact that while the childbirth rate among  Israeli women is the highest among the 35 OECD countries, Israel has the lowest rate of Caesarean sections.   
VBAC births are clinically complex, but the medical staff at Laniado provides a clinical envelope that is safe and allows a regular delivery without surgical intervention – even for  mothers who have undergone many Caesarean sections.

The Movement for Freedom of Information: Laniado Hospital's NICU among Top Three in Israel
simons and litig

A report published last week by the Movement for Freedom of Information names the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Laniado Hospital one of top three in Israel in terms of premature infant mortality rate.  The report, which is based on data from the Ministry of Health, showed that the mortality rate in 2016 at Laniado was only 0.9% - one of the lowest in Israel - compared with a mortality rate of over 3% at other medical centers.
This achievement is particularly impressive in light of the complexity of treating preterm babies, and particularly in light of the severe shortage of manpower in this field in general.
"The report is encouraging and reflects the great investment made by the medical and nursing staff," says Dr. Aryeh Simmonds, director of the NICU. This investment is proving itself.  We will continue to work hard in order to improve even more."
Etty Littig, head nurse at the NICU, noted that “Working in the NICU is challenging work that involves advanced technology and special care by skilled medical and nursing staffs in providing the treatment needed by our premature babies.
