We report a case of OEIS complex with the classical four major components in a 2-hour old term male baby, delivered by cesarean section to a 37-year-old lady with history of primary infertility and had the pregnancy with the aid of In Vito Fertilization. The baby was one of a set of twins. The other baby was alive and normal. We document the presence of a vesico-enteric fistula between the urinary bladder and the terminal ileum, which is to our best knowledge, a unique association that is not reported in the reviewed studies. We present the immediate neonatal care and surgical intervention that has been done for this newborn.
In conclusion, with strict repeated assessments of blood parameters and maintenance of the platelet count, the bleeding risk in pregnancy in DIAPH1-related disease can be successfully controlled. PMID: 29985732 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Publication date: July 2018Source: Reproductive BioMedicine Online, Volume 37, Issue 1Author(s): Xianghui Zhang, Dong Liu, Wei Huang, Qiushi Wang, Xue Feng, Jing TanAbstractThe effect of endometriosis on fecundity is unclear. Although surgery plays a vital role in the treatment of related infertility, pregnancy outcomes after laparoscopy are poorly correlated with the currently used staging system. To address this, the Endometriosis Fertility Index (EFI) was developed. This retrospective study was designed to assess the predictive value of the EFI for patients with endometriosis-associated infertility. A total of 1325 pati...
ConclusionsThe processes related to the differentially expressed proteins play important roles in fecundity and fecundability. The present study may reveal the cause of various endometrial aberrations as a limiting factor for achieving pregnancy in PCOS women.
Conclusion(s)Pregnancy/retrieval and ongoing pregnancy rates are comparable among the three protocols with GnRH agonist stop protocol having non-significantly higher rates.
ConclusionFindings revealed an improvement in pregnancy rates following hCG administration in FET cycles.
ConclusionFinal oocyte maturation with dual trigger improves the number of good quality embryos in normal responder women. Further research with larger sample size is needed to characterize the effect on oocyte quality and pregnancy rate.
