A 30-years-old Taiwanese female in her second pregnancy spontaneously conceived a monochorionic twin pregnancy. A routine ultrasound at 27 weeks of gestation revealed a selective intrauterine growth restriction (sIUGR) fetus and an appropriate gestational age (AGA) fetus. The AGA fetus was found to have a fetal intra-abdominal umbilical vein (FIUV) ...

Primary ovarian ectopic pregnancy (OEP) remains a rare but important type of ectopic pregnancy which is normally diagnosed at surgery. The aetiology is unknown. We have found fertility treatments (18.1%) and intrauterine contraceptive devices (19.3%) remain important associated risk factors. We undertook a world literature review of all cases since ...

Trisomy is the most common type of chromosome abnormality, affecting 4% of clinically recognised pregnancies, of which, trisomies 16, 21 and 22 are the most prevalent. It has been suggested that a large proportion of maternally derived trisomic pregnancies, specifically trisomy 21, are the result of low-level ovarian mosaicism. In ...

Despite the fact that ovarian stimulation is controlled, it is not always predictable. Because the day of human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) injection depends mainly on the patient's ovarian response to gonadotrophins, the day of oocyte retrieval cannot be determined in advance. As a result, oocyte retrievals are often scheduled to ...

The total number of ovarian follicles ≥3mm in diameter (antral follicle count, AFC) during follicular waves varies among cattle of similar age, but AFC is highly repeatable within individuals. We hypothesized that lower AFC could be associated with reduced fertility in cattle. The AFC was assessed by ultrasonography for 2 ...

Luteinizing hormone (LH) is believed to play a role in follicle maturation during the natural cycle. However, the need for co-treatment with recombinant LH (rLH) for controlled ovarian stimulation is controversial. The primary objective of our study was to determine if pregnancy rates are improved when rLH is used in ...

Superovulation procedures and assisted reproductive technologies (ART) have provided the means for significant improvement in infertility care. Although generally safe, these procedures are associated with complications that, albeit rare, can have significant morbidity. Complications from superovulation include ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, thromboembolism, and adnexal torsion. Complications from oocyte retrieval include infection, ...

Ovarian stimulation and intrauterine insemination (OS/IUI), a mainstay of current infertility therapy and a common antecedent to IVF, is a significant driver of the multiple births epidemic. Redress of this challenge, now marking its quarter centennial, will require a rethinking of current practice patterns. Herein we explore prospects for prevention, ...

With the availability of and improvements in in vitro fertilization (IVF), the role of reproductive surgery has been questioned. Yet, the scope of reproductive surgery today is much larger than in the past. Hysteroscopic correction of intrauterine disease is an important endoscopic procedure in women with infertility. Evidence suggests that correction ...

Much effort has been focused on improving assisted reproductive technology procedures in humans and nonhuman primates (NHPs). However, the pregnancy rate after embryo transfer (ET) has not been satisfactory, indicating that some barriers still need to be overcome in this important procedure. One of the key factors is embryo–uterine synchronicity, ...
