The usefulness of endometrial thickness, morphology and vasculature by 2D Doppler ultrasound in prediction of pregnancy in IVF/ICSI cycles
Conclusion When the endometrial thickness is <8mm, and if there are non-triple endometrial line and non-favorable blood flow zone on day of hCG in IVF/ICSI cycles, pregnancy is unlikely and embryo transfer should be canceled with freezing of all embryos for future transfer to increase the success rate.
CONCLUSION: MCDA twins after IVF/ICSI have lower overall survival rates and higher rates of second-trimester miscarriage compared to spontaneously conceived MCDA twins. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved. PMID: 31909558 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: UtA-PI and proportion of SGA are lower in pregnancies after frozen as compared to fresh blastocyst transfer. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved. PMID: 31909549 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsAfter adjustment for maternal characteristics, none of the fertility treatment types were associated with an increased risk of miscarriage compared with naturally conceiving women.
Embryo transfer (ET) is the final and most critical step in an ART cycle. Strategies that improve success include avoidance of uterine contractility, use of soft catheters, getting rid of cervical mucus and ultrasound guided placement of embryos in mid cavity to optimise outcomes. Bed rest and immobilisation after ET has been practiced for long with the intention to improve pregnancy rates, however this is a subject of debate. Recent studies suggest that contrary to the belief bed rest does not alter pregnancy outcome after ET.
CONCLUSIONS: Our study demonstrated that approximately one in five patients in clinical practice showed discordance between AFCs and AMH levels. In view of the AFC being better than AMH for predicting POR, the AFC should be the preferred indicator for predicting ovarian response to subsequently develop an optimal individualized COH protocol.

ConclusionOur long-term follow-up data demonstrate that the hysteroscopic correction of dysmorphic uteri may result in a high live birth rate in women suffering from unexplained infertility or repeated miscarriages.
ConclusionsIn this study, 11.8% of MAR pregnancies ended in miscarriage. The majority of pregnancy losses occurred in the first trimester and only 0.8 % of the MAR women had a miscarriage after an ultrasound verification of a viable pregnancy at 11-14 weeks of gestation. The corresponding miscarriage rate among SC women was 0.6 %. After adjustment for maternal characteristics, none of the fertility treatment types were associated with an increased risk of miscarriage compared with SC women.
CONCLUSIONSOur long-term follow-up data demonstrated that the hysteroscopic correction of dysmorphic uterus may result in high live birth rate in women suffering from unexplained infertility or repeated miscarriages.
Frank J. Broekmans* University Medical Center Utrecht, Utrecht, Netherlands The art of ovarian stimulation for IVF/ICSI treatment using exogenous FSH should be balanced against the relative contribution of other steps of the ART process such as the IVF-lab-phase and the Embryo-Transfer. The aim of ovarian stimulation is to obtain a certain number of oocytes, that will enable the best probability of achieving a live birth. It has been suggested that more oocytes will create a better prospect for pregnancy, but studies on the question whether the retrieval of a few oocytes less or more will make the difference are ...
