OBJECTIVE To compare rates of pregnancy loss after oocyte maturation in vitro (IVM), after IVF, and after intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). DESIGN Retrospective comparative study. SETTING University tertiary-care center for infertility. PATIENT(S) Women undergoing assisted reproductive technology in a single center. INTERVENTION(S) Oocyte(More)
This study compared the embryological characteristics and clinical outcome of in-vitro maturation (IVM) treatment cycles with and without in-vivo matured oocytes collected following human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) priming. The patients were administered 10,000 IU of HCG subcutaneously when endometrial thickness reached > or =6 mm and oocyte collection(More)
BACKGROUND The study aim was to establish whether basal serum levels of FSH and estradiol are predictive of outcome in women undergoing treatment by in-vitro maturation (IVM) of immature oocytes. METHODS Data were obtained from 123 unstimulated IVM cycles. Serum was taken between cycle days 2-4 for analysis. Patients received 10 000 IU of HCG 36 h before(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of either a 2.5-mg or a 5-mg daily dose of letrozole in women undergoing superovulation and intrauterine insemination (IUI). DESIGN Prospective randomized trial. SETTING Academic teaching hospital. PATIENT(S) Women <40 years old, with patent fallopian tubes and infertility of >1 year in(More)
BACKGROUND Our aim was to evaluate whether extending the interval between human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) priming and immature oocyte retrieval increases the oocyte maturation rate following in vitro maturation (IVM). METHODS This study was performed retrospectively. IVM was performed on 113 polycystic ovary syndrome patients (n = 120 cycles). Oocyte(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe pregnancies and live births that resulted from IVF of mature oocytes retrieved from dominant follicles in a natural cycle combined with in vitro maturation (IVM) of immature oocytes retrieved from small follicles. DESIGN Case reports. SETTING McGill Reproductive Center, Royal Victoria Hospital, McGill University. PATIENT(S) Three(More)
OBJECTIVE To measure the accuracy of three-dimensional (3D) sonohysterography in detecting intrauterine lesions. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING Teaching hospital. PATIENT(S) Two hundred nine infertile patients suspected to have an intrauterine lesion on 2D ultrasound or hysterosalpingography. INTERVENTION(S) Three-dimensional ultrasound, 2D and(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence of chronic endometritis (CE) in patients with recurrent implantation failure (RIF) after IVF and unexplained recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL). DESIGN Prospective observational study between November 2012 and March 2015. SETTING University-affiliated private IVF clinic. PATIENT(S) Women with RIF after IVF (group 1)(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the usefulness of three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound measurement of endometrial volume and thickness as a predictor of pituitary suppression and non-suppression following GnRH agonist administration for IVF. METHODS A total of 144 women undergoing 164 IVF cycles had transvaginal ultrasound(More)
Ectopic pregnancy is a life threatening condition and is a major event in a woman's reproductive life. We report herein an unusual case of repeated ectopic pregnancy even after the excision of both fallopian tubes with a deleterious consequences and a near miss. This case teaches us a lesson not to forget ectopic pregnancy. The lady in this report underwent(More)
