Because severe ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is a potentially life-threatening iatrogenic complication, much effort is made to prevent it and the anticipated pregnancy naturally becomes of secondary importance. There are many publications on OHSS, but very few on pregnancy outcomes. This work is to review the effect of OHSS on ...

Spontaneous heterotopic pregnancies are uncommon, and ovarian implantations are even more unusual. Clinical symptoms, serial human chorionic gonadotropin levels and the presence of an intrauterine pregnancy on ultrasound are not reliable to diagnose a heterotopic pregnancy. A 27-year-old Gravida 2 Para 1 presented with a complaint of right lower quadrant ...

BACKGROUND: Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome is a known complication of ovarian stimulation, particularly with injectable gonadotropins. Spontaneous ovarian hyperstimulation is rare and often involves a conformational change in the follicle-stimulating hormone receptor, increasing its binding with human chorionic gonadotropin or thyroid-stimulating hormone. Few data are available regarding the management or outcomes ...

In the pregnant mouse uterus, small leucine-rich proteoglycans (SLRPs) are drastically remodeled within a few hours after fertilization, suggesting that ovarian hormone levels modulate their synthesis and degradation. In this study, we followed by immunoperoxidase approach, the presence of four members of the SLRP family (decorin, lumican, biglycan, and fibromodulin) ...

PROBLEM: It has been a matter of controversy whether the polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is actually a causal factor of miscarriages because of the absence of internationally established criteria. We, therefore, in this study investigated whether PCOS and a polycystic ovary (PCO) morphology have predictive value for subsequent miscarriages using ...

Pituitary tissue is rarely to be found among the constituents of ovarian teratomas (dermoid cysts). In some exceptional cases, however, such ectopic pituitary anlagen may even give rise to secondary organ-specific pathologies. Akin to those of the pituitary in its natural location, these tend to be adenomas. We describe a ...

Multiple pregnancy is increasingly considered a complication of in vitro fertilization (IVF) and ovarian stimulation for natural fertilization. Harms to fetuses, newborn and older children, mothers, families, and healthcare systems are encouraging single embryo transfer. When patients knowingly accept multiple pregnancy risks from IVF or ovarian stimulation, they are unlikely ...
