OBJECTIVE To examine the relationship between the inner cell mass (ICM) grade and its morphological configuration on the occurrence of monochorionic diamniotic (M-D) twinning. DESIGN Retrospective embryo cohort study. SETTING Private IVF clinic. PATIENT(S) Evaluation of frozen-thawed single blastocyst transfers with hormone replacement treatment in(More)
Aim Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is used frequently for luteal support in fresh in vitro fertilization cycles as it induces progesterone secretion from the ovaries after oocyte retrieval and modulates the endometrium for implantation in fresh cycles. In contrast, hCG is not usually used for the transfer of cryopreserved-thawed embryos in(More)
Aim To determine whether there are differences in size between the male and female pronuclei immediately before the pronuclear membrane breakdown (PNMBD) and to evaluate whether pronuclear size differences influence normal birth rates. Methods Time-lapse photography was used to measure the size of each pronucleus, while the outcome of 71 frozen-thawed(More)

Aim Several studies have indicated that the cause of the increased birthweight of frozen-thawed embryos was associated with assisted reproductive technology (ART) procedures, such as cryopreservation. In the present study, the mean birthweight of singletons was compared between the ovulatory and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) cycles in order to(More)
An increased risk of testicular cancer in men with infertility and poor semen quality has been reported. In view of the high cure rates for testicular germ cell tumours, increasing clinical importance is being placed on the protection of fertility. High-dose cytostatic therapy may be expected to cause long-term infertility. Thus, the standard procedure for(More)
