BACKGROUND This 11th European IVF-monitoring report presents the results of assisted reproductive technology (ART) treatments initiated in Europe during 2007. METHODS From 33 countries, 1029 clinics reported 493 184 treatment cycles: IVF (120 761), ICSI (256 642), frozen embryo replacement (91 145), egg donation (15 731), preimplantation genetic(More)
background: In this 10th European IVF-monitoring (EIM) report, the results of assisted reproductive techniques from treatments initiated in Europe during 2006 are presented. Data were mainly collected from existing national registers., preimplantation genetic diagnosis/screening (6561), in vitro maturation (247) and frozen oocytes replacements (3498).(More)
BACKGROUND To estimate the incidence of aneuploidy in relation to patients' characteristics, the type of hormonal stimulation and their response to induction of multiple follicular growth, 4163 first polar bodies (PB1s) were analyzed. METHODS Five hundred and forty four infertile couples underwent 706 assisted conception cycles (640 with poor prognosis(More)
BACKGROUND Few works have evaluated the effect of statins on left ventricular dysfunction in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF), by using tissue Doppler imaging (TDI). We therefore aimed to investigate whether atorvastatin treatment may influence prognosis and myocardial performance evaluated by TDI in subjects with CHF. METHODS Five hundred(More)
Thirty cycles of microsurgical epididymal sperm aspiration were performed on 27 patients presenting agenesia of the vas deferens. Two techniques of microinsemination were used, depending on the quality of the sperm preparation: subzonal sperm microinjection and microdroplet insemination. The results obtained by both microinsemination procedures are(More)
During the past few years, many oocyte insemination techniques, including microinjection, have evolved in the treatment of male-factor infertility. This preliminary study was designed to evaluate whether microdroplet insemination could be considered a reliable technique, especially for semen samples with male-factor defects. The first objective was to(More)

background: The quantity and the reasons for seeking cross border reproductive care are unknown. The present article provides a picture of this activity in six selected European countries receiving patients. methods: Data were collected from 46 ART centres, participating voluntarily in six European countries receiving cross border patients.
