OBJECTIVE: To summarize the procedures and outcomes of assisted reproductive technology (ART) initiated in the United States and Canada in 1995. DESIGN: Data were collected in the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology database program and cycle reporting forms and were submitted to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine/Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology Registry. PARTICIPANT(S): Two hundred eighty-one programs submitted data on procedures performed in 1995. Data were collected after November 1996 so that outcome of all pregnancies established would be known. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Procedural outcomes measured included clinical pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy, abortion, stillbirth, delivery, and congenital abnormality. RESULT(S): Programs reported initiating 59,142 cycles of ART treatment, including frozen embryo and donor oocyte cycles. Of these, 41,087 cycles initiated were IVF (with and without micromanipulation) with 22.5% deliveries per retrieval; 3,741 were cycles of gamete intrafallopian transfer with 27.0% deliveries per retrieval; 1,078 were cycles of zygote intrafallopian transfer with 27.9% deliveries per retrieval. In addition to these cycles initiated in 1995, 8,453 frozen embryo thaw procedures were reported, either as separate procedures or in combination with other ART procedures with 15.2% deliveries per transfer, 3,555 donor oocyte cycles were initiated with an overall success of 36.0% deliveries per transfer, 1,028 cryopreserved embryo thaw procedures from donated oocyte procedures with an overall success of 16.8% deliveries per transfer, and 200 ART treatment cycles in which a host uterus was used were initiated with an overall success of 34.9% deliveries per ET. As a result of all procedures, a total of 11,631 deliveries were reported, resulting in 16,520 neonates. CONCLUSION(S): In 1995, there were more programs reporting ART treatment and a significant (19.3%) increase in reported cycles. In comparable cycle types, overall average success rates (deliveries per transfer) exhibited a 0.6% increase or a 2.5% increase over the rates in the 1994 reported summaries.
