Abstract/OtherAbstract:
OBJECTIVE: To report successful pregnancies in the setting of exaggerated endometrial thickness. DESIGN: Case report. SETTING: Two infertility practices. PATIENT(S): Two IVF patients. INTERVENTION(S): IVF and ET. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Endometrial thickness on the days of hCG injection, oocyte retrieval, and ET. RESULT(S): Two successful twin pregnancies, each after the transfer of two embryos, in the setting of an endometrial thickness of 16 mm in one case and 20 mm in the other. CONCLUSION(S): This report illustrates the possibility for a successful outcome in the setting of an exaggerated endometrial thickness, including for the first time a value of 20 mm on the day of egg retrieval.
