No

Please add:

abnormal blastocyst formation
DEF: atypical formation of a blastocyst from a solid ball of cells known as a morula, including anomalies in the formation of a fluid-filled cavity (blastocoele) and/or initiation of inner cell mass and trophectoderm differentiation.

failure of blastocyst formation
DEF: inability to form a blastocyst from a solid ball of cells known as a morula
SYN: absent blastocyst

NOTE: existing term "failure to form blastocele [MP:0002663]" should be made a child of “failure of blastocyst formation”

Thanks

Anna

Discussion

  • PS. add "abnormal blastulation" as a synonym for "abnormal blastocyst formation"?

    Blastulation is the transformation of the morula into a blastocyst or blastula by the development of a central cavity, the blastocoele.
