In the current study, our aim was to demonstrate that EmbryoScope incubation conditions is comparable to standard laboratory incubation circumstances by comparing embryo quality, development and ongoing pregnancy rates between the EmbryoScope (ES) and a standard incubator (SI). We analyzed 478 embryos from 60 couples undergoing oocyte donation were included(More)
BACKGROUND Ovarian orthotopic transplantation in patients with premature ovarian failure is reported to result in full-term pregnancies. Ischaemia and freezing/thawing are potentially injurious for tissues. This study was designed to analyse the effect of ischaemia on long-term ovarian function in humans. METHODS Prospective case-control study. Subjects(More)
BACKGROUND New approaches for non-invasive embryo-quality assessment are among the major goals in Reproductive Medicine. We hypothesize that the detection of changes in the protein profile of the culture media in which blastocysts are cultured could be a potential indicator of the viability of the embryo and, thus, a useful tool for selecting the more(More)
Because of the different intrinsic characteristics of the classic IVF and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) techniques, the timing of zygote development can be influenced by the method of fertilization. However, there is no information about the relevance of the insemination procedure on embryo-quality parameters as measured through their(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare embryologic and clinical outcomes in terms of preimplantation development, implantation, pregnancy rates, and secretome profile of implanted blastocysts from the preimplantation genetic diagnosis program grown in sequential versus endometrial epithelial cell (EEC) coculture system. DESIGN Retrospective clinical study and prospective(More)
When collection of ejaculated sperm samples is not possible, as is the case with wild species, the epididymides of sacrificed wild males become the only possible source of spermatozoa. Mature cauda epididymal spermatozoa display characteristics similar to those of ejaculated sperm cells. The present work proposes a sperm staining technique suitable for the(More)
