The presence of hydrosalpinges has been shown to be deleterious in infertility treatment. Pregnancy rates after in-vitro fertilization (IVF) with embryo transfer decline considerably. This study concerns a patient who developed bilateral hydrosalpinges during controlled ovarian stimulation in preparation for IVF treatment. Transvaginal aspiration of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To test a sonoscopic technique developed for transvaginal catheterization and recanalization of the fallopian tube. DESIGN In a feasibility study, catheterization was performed with the use of laparoscopic control. Patients with bilateral proximal tubal obstruction underwent fallopian tube recanalization under ultrasonic observation. SETTING(More)
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the use of colour Doppler sonography of ascendent uterine artery perfusion in 91 patients undergoing in-vitro fertilization (IVF)-embryo transfer treatment after ovarian stimulation with a depot formulation of goserelin and recombinant human follicle stimulating hormone according to the long protocol.(More)
In vitro incubations with slices of two normal human ovaries and 4-14C-pregnenolone as precursor were carried out to study the possibility of a direct influence of chlormadinone acetate on the metabolism of pregnenolone. In agreement with our previous studies the incubations of the ovary from the follicle phase of the cycle yields a profile of steroids(More)
Compounds capable of limiting oestrogen production may be useful for controlling fertility and growth of oestrogen-dependent tumors. To examine the direct effects of the aromatase inhibiting delta 1,4-bisnorcholadienic acid on the ovarian biosynthesis of steroids, tissue slices obtained from two cyclically functional human ovaries were incubated with(More)
A new method for gamete intra fallopian transfer is described by which the tubes can be catheterised via vagina, through the endometrial cavity, in order to place gametes directly to the ampullary portion of the fallopian tube without the need for an operation or anaesthesia. In a first series two clinical pregnancies resulted from 8 transuterine transfers.
This study describes the conduct and results of a recently developed technique for transvaginal catheterization of the Fallopian tube in order to transfer gametes or early embryos. Transvaginal gamete intra-Fallopian transfer (TV-GIFT) was performed in 46 patients after stimulation with human menopausal gonadotrophin (HMG) and human chorionic gonadotrophin(More)
