Characterization of a top quality embryo, a step towards single-embryo transfer.
TLDR
It is suggested that single embryo transfer with an acceptable pregnancy rate might be considered if a top quality embryo is available. Expand
Prevention of twin pregnancy after in-vitro fertilization or intracytoplasmic sperm injection based on strict embryo criteria: a prospective randomized clinical trial.
TLDR
It is concluded that by using single embryo transfer and strict embryo criteria, an OPR similar to that in normal fertile couples can be achieved after IVF/ICSI, while limiting the dizygotic twin pregnancy rate to its natural incidence of <1% of all ongoing pregnancies. Expand
Reduced amounts and abnormal forms of phospholipase C zeta (PLCzeta) in spermatozoa from infertile men.
TLDR
The findings illustrate the importance of PLCzeta during fertilization and suggest that mutant forms of P LCzeta may underlie certain types of human male infertility. Expand
Multinucleation in cleavage stage embryos.
TLDR
Multinucleation is a frequently observed phenomenon associated with impaired cleavage and increased fragmentation and is compromising the ongoing implantation rate and should be part of embryo assessment. Expand
Clinical effectiveness of elective single versus double embryo transfer: meta-analysis of individual patient data from randomised trials
TLDR
Elective single embryos transfer results in a higher chance of delivering a term singleton live birth compared with double embryo transfer, and the multiple pregnancy rate after elective single embryo transfer is comparable with that observed in spontaneous pregnancies. Expand
Elective single day 3 embryo transfer halves the twinning rate without decrease in the ongoing pregnancy rate of an IVF/ICSI programme.
TLDR
Judicious application of eSET can halve the twinning rate while maintaining the overall pregnancy rate, as well as halving the multiple pregnancy and twinning rates. Expand
Calculating the implantation potential of day 3 embryos in women younger than 38 years of age: a new model.
TLDR
A retrospective analysis of morphological characteristics and cleavage kinetics of day 3 embryos resulting in an objective assessment of the relative implantation potential of each distinct type of embryo. Expand
A real-life prospective health economic study of elective single embryo transfer versus two-embryo transfer in first IVF/ICSI cycles.
TLDR
This prospective health economic study shows that transfer of a single top quality embryo is equally effective as, but substantially cheaper than, double embryo transfer in women <38 years of age in their first IVF/ICSI cycle. Expand
Long-term assessment of the physical, mental, and sexual health among transsexual women.
TLDR
Transsexual women function well on a physical, emotional, psychological and social level, but sexual functioning as assessed through FSFI was suboptimal when compared with biological women, especially the sublevels concerning arousal, lubrication, and pain. Expand
Perinatal outcome of 12,021 singleton and 3108 twin births after non-IVF-assisted reproduction: a cohort study.
TLDR
Overall results showed a significantly higher incidence of prematurity, low and very low birth weight, transfer to the neonatal intensive care unit and most neonatal morbidity parameters for COS/AI singletons. Expand
