Oocyte maturation arrest produced by TUBB8 mutations: impact of genetic disorders in infertility treatment
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy of various diagnostic methods and to estimate the prevalence of bacterial pathogens associated with subclinical endometritis (SCE) in dromedary camels. During two consecutive breeding seasons, a total of 2122 infertile female dromedaries were assigned to this study and suspected cases of SCE were identified using the established criteria which included failure to conceive after three or more consecutive matings with a fertile male, a clinically healthy genital system, no observable vaginal discharge, and normal sexual behavior. Manual vaginal examination, Metr...
ConclusionsThis is the first report of livebirth after use of robotic ‐assisted laparoscopy in uterus transplantation and is thereby a proof‐of‐concept of use of minimal invasive surgery in this new type of transplantation.
Shabnam Bhandari Grover, Neha Antil, Amit Katyan, Heena Rajani, Hemal Grover, Pratima Mittal, Sudha PrasadIndian Journal of Radiology and Imaging 2020 30(1):32-45 Infertility is a major social and clinical problem affecting 13–15% of couples worldwide. The pelvic causes of female infertility are categorized as ovarian disorders, tubal, peritubal disorders, and uterine disorders. Appropriate selection of an imaging modality is essential to accurately diagnose the aetiology of infertlity, since the imaging diagnosis directs the appropriate treatment to be instituted. Imaging evaluation begins with hystero- salping...
Many papers and reviews have described the changes of the cervix during pregnancy, cervical cancer, sexually transmitted infections, and cervicovaginal microbiota. In this Views and Reviews, we focus on some specific topics in relation to the uterine cervix and infertility: early cervical cancer and fertility sparing surgery, cesarean scar defect, cervical incompetence, and cervical m üllerian anomalies.
Around 20% of pregnant women undergo cesarean section (CS), and in most regions of the world CS rates continue to grow. There is still no clear definition of what is considered a normal physiologic aspect of a CS scar and what is abnormal. Cesarean scar defects (CSDs) should be suspected in women presenting with spotting, dysmenorrhea, pelvic pain, or infertility and a history of CS. CSDs can be visualized with the use of hysterosalpingography, transvaginal sonography, saline infusion sonohysterography, hysteroscopy, and magnetic resonance imaging.
Conclusion: HIFU showed a safe and effective profile as a therapeutic management option for patients with adenomyosis. In comparison with LE, HIFU treatment achieved better postoperative reproductive outcomes. HIFU treatment should be encouraged and implemented in clinical practice.

Conclusions: CEP290 mutations are associated with a variety of overlapping clinical phenotypes, some of which will become better understood as more patients with these conditions survive to reproductive age. Similarly, increased understanding of the molecular mechanisms that underlie differences in phenotype may provide avenues to consider in future therapies.

ConclusionOur simple evidence-based nomogram presents graphically risk factors and prognostic models for IVF/ICSI outcomes in patients with PCOS, which can offer useful guidance to clinicians and patients for individual adjuvant therapy.
I was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa over a decade ago. Blinded by the eating disorder to the damage that was occurring both internally and externally, the possibility of infertility did not occur to me. When I married at 21, my husband and I both dreamed of one day becoming parents and I lived in this optimism for some time. However, after my periods stopped for 7 years, I began to doubt if being a mother would ever be my reality. As an eating disorder patient, I had been regularly informed of the risk factors of my illness, some of which included amenorrhoea, the absence of menstruation, and a high chance of infer...
