In 143 cycles of in vitro fertilization the ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) occurred in 12 (8.4%) cycles. Six were in the moderate form and 6 severe. Ovarian stimulation by menotropins was preceded by induction of hypopituitary hypogonadism using D-Trp6-LH-RH microcapsules. The OHSS cycles are characterized by improved ovarian response expressed by(More)
A series of 20 cases of primary ovarian pregnancy that were diagnosed and treated in one institution is reported. The prevalence rate of 1:3600 deliveries seems to be increasing in past years and comprises 3.3% of all extrauterine pregnancies. Clinical presentation, possible pathogenesis, diagnostic steps, preferred management, and future fertility are(More)
To study the effect of mycoplasmas and Chlamydia trachomatis infection on semen quality, these microorganisms were cultured from the semen and anterior urethra respectively, in a group of 175 infertile men suspected of a silent genital infection with a poor postcoital test. Chlamydia infection, but not mycoplasmas, was parodoxically more frequent in the(More)
To prospectively compare the diagnostic ability of both HSG and diagnostic hysteroscopy in recurrent aborters, an HSG followed by a diagnostic hysteroscopy was performed in 106 patients during an investigation into recurrent abortions. The uterine cavity findings on HSG and at hysteroscopy were compared. Among the 60 abnormal HSG patients, intrauterine(More)
The incidence of GnRH-analog administration in the presence of undiagnosed pregnancy is discussed. Immediate hormonal supplementation avoids luteolysis. The report includes two cases, one without hormonal replacement, in which preclinical pregnancy occurred, and the second, where P was supplemented immediately upon diagnosis of pregnancy.
Early follicular use of long-acting analogues of gonadotrophin releasing hormone (GnRH) in IVF programmes has caused some concern with respect to its teratogenic potential. In the case reported here, an injection of DTRP6 GnRH microcapsules was given in the 5th week of a spontaneous unsuspected pregnancy. No deleterious effect or teratogenesis of the embryo(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare a "no touch" approach to diagnostic hysteroscopy without anesthesia with traditional diagnostic hysteroscopy after intracervical injection of mepivacaine hydrochloride 3%. METHODS A total of 130 women undergoing diagnostic hysteroscopy were included in the study and were randomized, using a computer-generated randomization list to one(More)
With the gradual decline in the use of zygote intra-Fallopian transfer (ZIFT), current practice is to offer ZIFT almost exclusively to patients with repeated implantation failure (RIF). For practical reasons, the procedure is sometimes deferred by 1 day and embryo intra-Fallopian transfer (EIFT) is performed. The aim of the present study was to compare the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect on the maternal and fetal circulation of progesterone administered to prevent preterm birth. METHODS We used an observational cohort study design. The study group included 44 women at 18-32 weeks' gestation who presented with an episode of preterm labor, with or without history of delivery before 34 weeks' gestation, or an(More)
