A systematic review of tests predicting ovarian reserve and IVF outcome.
TLDR
The analysis shows that the ORTs known to date have only modest-to-poor predictive properties and are therefore far from suitable for relevant clinical use. Expand
Empirical evidence of design-related bias in studies of diagnostic tests.
TLDR
These data provide empirical evidence that diagnostic studies with methodological shortcomings may overestimate the accuracy of a diagnostic test, particularly those including nonrepresentative patients or applying different reference standards. Expand
Surgical approach to hysterectomy for benign gynaecological disease.
TLDR
Assessing the most beneficial and least harmful surgical approach to hysterectomy for women with benign gynaecological conditions found VH should be performed in preference to AH where possible and where VH is not possible, LH may avoid the need for AH. Expand
Interventions for tubal ectopic pregnancy.
TLDR
The effectiveness and safety of surgery, medical treatment and expectant management of tubal ectopic pregnancy is evaluated in view of primary treatment success, tubal preservation and future fertility. Expand
Antral follicle count in the prediction of poor ovarian response and pregnancy after in vitro fertilization: a meta-analysis and comparison with basal follicle-stimulating hormone level.
TLDR
Transvaginal ultrasonography is an easy-to-perform and noninvasive method that provides essential predictive information on ovarian responsiveness and the predictive performance of AFC toward poor response is significantly better than that of basal FSH. Expand
The accuracy of hysterosalpingography in the diagnosis of tubal pathology: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
Although HSG is of limited use for detecting tubal patency because of its low sensitivity, its high specificity makes it a useful test for ruling in tubal obstruction. Expand
Risk factors for ectopic pregnancy: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
The strong risk in women with a previous EP, previous tubal surgery, documented tubal pathology, or in utero DES exposure justifies the exploration of a screening policy for EP among these women. Expand
Use of uterine artery Doppler ultrasonography to predict pre-eclampsia and intrauterine growth restriction: a systematic review and bivariable meta-analysis
TLDR
Uterine artery Doppler ultrasonography provided a more accurate prediction when performed in the second trimester than in the first-trimester, and an increased pulsatility index with notching was the best predictor of pre-eclampsia. Expand
Added value of ovarian reserve testing on patient characteristics in the prediction of ovarian response and ongoing pregnancy: an individual patient data approach.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that AFC and AMH clearly add to age in predicting poor response and ongoing pregnancy after IVF, and the clinical usefulness of ORTs prior to IVF will be limited to the prediction of ovarian response. Expand
Pregnancy of unknown location: a consensus statement of nomenclature, definitions, and outcome.
TLDR
Careful definition of populations and classification of outcomes should optimize objective interpretation of research, allow objective assessment of future reproductive prognosis, and hopefully lead to improved clinical care of women initially identified to have a PUL. Expand
