The management of poor responders in IVF has always been a big problem. The ideal approach has yet to be formulated. In this study we aim to compare two alternative stimulation protocols. A total of 48 poor responder patients described from previous cycles were included and grouped into two: group I consisted of 24 patients in 24 cycles in which leuprolide(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the usefulness of sonohysterography in the detection of abnormalities of the uterine cavity in infertile patients, compared with other diagnostic methods. Transvaginal ultrasonography, sonohysterography, hysterosalpingography and finally hysteroscopy were performed in 37 patients with primary and 25 patients with(More)
One of the major signs of inflammation is a change in vascular flow and caliber. It is possible to detect these changes with the help of transvaginal color Doppler velocitometry. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the changes in pelvic circulation in cases with pelvic infection and to correlate these findings with other infectious parameters. The(More)
Concern about the use of gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists in ovarian stimulation of poor responder IVF patients has arisen from the claim that GnRH agonists might have a direct deleterious effect through their receptors on the ovary. In this study, we compared two ovarian stimulation protocols in which no GnRH agonists were used. In all, 40(More)
The majority of the venous thromboembolic events seen in patient following gonadotropin administration were associated with the development of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). However, in this case report, a 29-year-old woman that conceived by controlled ovarian hyperstimulation, intracytoplasmic sperm injection and subsequent embryo transfer(More)
This study aimed at testing the hypothesis that lower uterine arterial (UA) Doppler indices are caused by increased uterine volume rather than the presence of myoma. Uterine volumes were calculated and uterine and/or myomal arterial pulsatility index (PI) and resistance index (RI) were obtained by transvaginal color Doppler ultrasonography. The mean uterine(More)
The aim of this study was to document the Doppler indices [pulsatility index (PI) and resistance index (RI)] of the uterine arteries in 30 patients who underwent hysteroscopic rollerball endometrial ablation for dysfunctional uterine bleeding by transvaginal pulsed Doppler sonography, and to reveal whether treatment failures (persistent menometrorrhagia)(More)
AIM To find out the predictors of ICSI outcome. METHODS Forty-three pregnancies in 100 consecutive ICSI cycles. RESULTS Every 1,000 pg/ml increase in hCG-day E2 (OR = 0.46, CI: 0.25-0.83, p = 0.01) and 1% decrease in the rate of normal sperm morphology (OR = 0.81, CI: 0.67-0.98, p = 0.03) caused a significant decrease in clinical pregnancy rate and live(More)
OBJECTIVE Hydatid cyst still continues to be a public health problem. The basic treatment for the disease is surgery, but ultrasound-guided percutaneous drainage has become an important treatment alternative. Agents preferred for sedation during drainage performed under local anaesthesia must also preserve respiration and hemodynamic stability while(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The I-gel supraglottic airway has a non-inflatable cuff made from a gel-like thermoplastic elastomer. The use of the I-gel during anesthesia for spontaneously breathing patients or intermittent positive pressure ventilation has been reported. But there are a few published reports about the use of the I-gel with pressure-controlled(More)
