ConclusionsCarriers of balanced chromosome inversions did not exhibit higher aneuploidy rates for chromosomes that were not involved in the inversion compared to maternal age-matched controls, signifying the absence of an inter-chromosomal effect for this data set. These results provide the largest investigation of blastocyst embryos regarding the debated existence of an ICE resulting from the presence of an inversion during meiosis. However, further studies are warranted to investigate an ICE among inversions subtypes that were outside the scope of this study.

Endometrial polyps are frequently encountered in the uterine cavity of infertile women. There is much debate regarding the treatment of endometrial polyps in patients who are undergoing assisted reproductive technology (ART). A systematic review was performed by searching PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Library for retrospective or prospective studies that compared the effect of hysteroscopic resection of polyps with no treatment on pregnancy outcomes of patients who underwent ART. Primary outcomes were clinical pregnancy, live birth, miscarriage, and implantation rate after ART.
