Reproductive success of assisted reproductive technology in couples with chromosomal abnormalities
ConclusionAlthough the differences regarding success rate between groups were not found statistically significant, we still advocate that cytogenetic analysis should be performed routinely in all infertile couples namely before ART. This might help deciding the best treatment options including Preimplantation Genetic Testing for aneuploidies or structural rearrangements and minimize the risk of transmission of anomalies to the offspring.

Impaired function of motile cilia causes failure of mucociliary clearance. Patients typically present with neonatal respiratory distress of unknown cause and then continue to have a daily wet cough, recurrent chest infections, perennial rhinosinusitis, otitis media with effusion, and bronchiectasis. Approximately 50% of patients have situs inversus, and infertility is common....
ConclusionVaginal surgery seems to be effective for cesarean scar defect. A prospective study should be performed.
ConclusionEndometrial cancer, specifically type I endometrioid adenocarcinoma and its precursor lesions are strongly associated with unopposed estrogen states such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), obesity as well as nulliparity. Patients seeking assisted reproductive technologies make up a subset of these patients and strongly desire to maintain their fertility. Progesterone therapy for select patients may be a safe and effective temporary treatment for endometrial carcinoma and atypical precursor lesions prior to starting IVF-ET. IVF-ET is very effective in treating such patients.

ConclusionTubal reconstructive surgery remains an important option to offer patients who want to avoid in vitro fertilization and who have mild tubal disease.
ConclusionOur findings suggest that baseline uterine volume is a strong predictor of term birth after fresh ET. These findings require prospective validation in larger sample sizes given the multifactorial nature of term birth.
