Our story.... to begin with....is no different from many infertile couples. A perfect love marriage in 2005 with everyone's blessing after 5 years of courtship! As we began this exciting journey of togetherness, atage of 23,conscious decision was made not to start a family until be both settle well in careers, have a house of our own and descent earning to support a good standard of living. Years passed by fast and we were all set by 2009 to begin 'trying' for a baby with a confidence to be conceiving soon.....2010 came, with no success after trying for almost a year. The doctor in me alerted myown self that something is not going right. Went to seek agynaec opinion andwas taken aback to learn that I had PCOS (polycystic ovaries) with anovulatory cycles which needs tobe treated before we could try again. 6 months of treatment and the cycles were responding well. Started off with my ovulations studies and trying 'normally' for 6-8 months. Again no luck! Meanwhile, during this process, further good news for me was to learn that I am athalessemia minor (a type of anemia) and grade 1 heart disease - MVP. And being a medic, I knew what this meant for me - conceiving will be a challenge and pregnancy will be high-risk.SoI was referred to theso called experts in infertility in the town (Pune). Hysteroscopy confirmed everything normal and IUI suggested. 5 failed IUI cycles left us with 'IVF' thrown as the last option to conceive. By this time, allpossi...
CONCLUSION: Pregnancy outcomes after hysteroscopic placement of a microinsert for hydrosalpinx management before embryo transfer were comparable to those following laparoscopic proximal tubal occlusion or salpingectomy. However, caution is advised regarding microinsert placement for hydrosalpinges before proceeding with assisted reproductive technology. PMID: 32224160 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Individuals with DD undergoing PMT presented higher rates of recurrence of periodontitis and tooth loss when compared to individuals without DD. Additionally, the interaction between DD and smoking significantly increased the risk for the recurrence of periodontitis. PMID: 32224545 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Lee Y, Ahn EH, Ryu CS, Kim JO, An HJ, Cho SH, Kim JH, Kim YR, Lee WS, Kim NK Abstract The present study aimed to investigate the potential association of five miRNA machinery gene polymorphisms (DICER1 rs3742330A>G, DROSHA rs10719T>C, RAN rs14035C>T, XPO5 rs11077A>C and DGCR8 rs417309G>A) with recurrent implantation failure (RIF), a clinical condition in which good-quality embryos repeatedly fail to implant following two or more in vitro fertilization cycles, and its associated risk factors in Korean women. Therefore, the present study performed genotype analysis and assessed the frequency o...

In this study, we examined the effect of laparoscopic-guided transversus abdominis plane block (LG TAP) for further optimizing multimodal pain control.MethodsThis is a retrospective analysis of a prospectively collected database of 140 consecutive patients undergoing LSG without TAP block (pre-TAP group) compared to 131 patients undergoing LSG with LGTAP (TAP group). All operations were performed laparoscopically utilizing uniform clinical pathways. Baseline characteristics for both groups were comparable. Both groups received standardized anesthesia. Outcomes included time to postoperative ambulation, pain scores, PCA vol...
ConclusionsIntracorporeal anastomosis using linear staplers reduced anastomotic bleeding and stenosis compared to extracorporeal anastomosis after LTG. Future research will be required to determine the ideal method for intracorporeal anastomosis in LTG.
