An increasing number of couples require medical assistance to achieve a pregnancy, and more than 2% of the births in Western countries now result from assisted reproductive technologies. To identify genetic variants responsible for male infertility, we performed a whole-genome SNP scan on patients presenting with total globozoospermia, a primary infertility(More)
BACKGROUND Endometrial adenocarcinoma usually occurs after menopause, but in 2%-14% of cases, it occurs in young patients (less than 40 years of age) who are eager to preserve their fertility. Its treatment includes hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy, and, in some cases, radiation therapy. AIM To describe a case of(More)

METHODS We reported six cases of patients with a Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome. The surgical procedure was the same for all patients. The results have been evaluated on the operative(More)
BACKGROUND Age and increased FSH serum level in women are prognosis criteriae associated with decreased fertility. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate whether age-specific FSH concentration can be a predictor of the outcome of ovarian stimulation in women undergoing IVF. METHODS A total of 676 women undergoing their first IVF cycle over a(More)

AIM Assess the impact of menstrual blood loss on the quality of life for women with inherited bleeding disorders. METHODS 31 women with various inherited bleeding disorders(More)
AIM to compare standard long GnRH agonist protocol (Triptorelin) and GnRH antagonist regimens (Cetrorelix) in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) patients undergoing controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) for ICSI cycles. METHODS Retrospective case-control study. 106 PCOS patients undergoing COS for ICSI with long GnRH agonist protocol (Triptorelin) were(More)
We report a case of sirenomelia sequence observed in an incident of preterm labor during the 29th gestational week. According to some authors, this syndrome should be classified separately from caudal regression syndrome and is likely to be the result of an abnormality taking place during the fourth gestational week, causing developmental abnormalities in(More)
To identify the distribution of chromosome abnormalities among Tunisian women with premature ovarian failure (POF) referred to the department of Cytogenetic at the Pasteur Institute of Tunis (Tunisia), standard cytogenetic analysis was carried out in a total of 100 women younger than 40 affected with premature ovarian failure. We identified 18 chromosomal(More)
BACKGROUND Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a micromanipulation-assisted fertilization, whereby one spermatozoon is injected into the oocyte cytoplasm. Initially, ICSI was the treatment of choice for male factor infertility. However, because of the high fertilization and pregnancy rates achieved with this technique, the scope of the procedure has(More)
BACKGROUND Intrauterine insemination is usually proposed as the first line therapy for infertility related to cervical hostility, male factor, unexplained infertility or mild endometriosis. The overall succes rate of IUI is about 10-20% clinial pregnancy per cycle. The Aim of this study is to evaluate factors that increase the succes rate of IUI. METHODS(More)
