BACKGROUND Advanced maternal age (AMA) is an important parameter that negatively influences the clinical pregnancy rate in IVF, in particular owing to the increased embryo aneuploidy rate. It has thus been suggested that only transferring euploid embryos in this patient group would improve the pregnancy rate. The purpose of this study was to test whether(More)
A prospective, randomized, comparative, assessor-blind study was carried out in two centres to compare the efficacy and safety of recombinant human follicle stimulating hormone (r-hFSH; Gonal-F) versus highly purified urinary FSH (u-hFSH HP; Metrodin HP), both administered s.c. in women undergoing ovarian stimulation for in-vitro fertilization including(More)
The aim of the study was to compare the outcome of bridges supported by implants with bridges supported by a combination of implants and natural teeth abutments. The study comprised 23 patients with Applegate Kennedy Class I dentition in the mandible and a full upper denture. Implants ad modum Brånemark were inserted in the posterior areas of both(More)
PURPOSE The use of implants for prosthetic rehabilitation of partially edentulous patients is increasing. However, the possibilities of placing implants in the posterior part of the mandible are often limited. The purpose of this longitudinal study with 10 years of follow-up was to evaluate the use of short implants supporting fixed partial dentures (FPD)(More)
BACKGROUND A prospective randomized study was carried out in two centres to compare the number of oocytes retrieved after two different starting doses of recombinant human FSH (rhFSH) (Gonal-F) in women undergoing ovarian stimulation for IVF/intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) cycles using the multiple dose regimen of the gonadotrophin-releasing hormone(More)
The clinical question at issue, whether it is possible to combine implants and natural teeth via fixed bridges, is of current interest. The treatment of the subjects of this prospective study was performed between June 1984 and December 1986. This article presents the 5-year results of the study. The consecutive patient material comprised 23 patients with(More)
Twenty-three patients with Kennedy Class I mandibular dentition were supplied with prostheses in the posterior parts of the mandible. On one side they were given a prosthesis supported by two implants (prosthesis Type I) and on the other side they received a prosthesis supported by one implant and one natural tooth (prosthesis Type II). Sixty-nine fixtures(More)
BACKGROUND A pre-ovarian block (POB) technique can be used for pain relief during oocyte retrieval in IVF. The local anaesthetic is deposited in the vaginal wall and between the vaginal wall and the peritoneal surface near the ovary using ultrasound guidance. The aim of this study was to test whether analgesia with POB resulted in improved pain relief(More)
The aim of this observational two-centre study was to investigate different aspects of pain in oocyte aspiration in conjunction with IVF, whether the preoperative information to women was sufficient, and which factor(s) influenced a woman's sense of security. The study group comprised 124 women who underwent IVF treatment. The visual analogue scale (VAS)(More)
Osseointegrated implants in 50 edentulous jaws were studied during a 2-year observation period. The implant survival rate was 89% in the maxillae and 97% in the mandibles. The marginal bone loss averaged 1.7 mm in the maxillae and 1.1 mm in the mandibles. Most of this bone loss occurred during the first year. The bone loss was greater in jaws with a(More)
