This study was performed to investigate the association between FSH receptor (FSHR) gene polymorphism at position 680 and the outcomes of controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH) for in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (IVF-ET) in Korean women. Two hundred and sixty-three patients under 40 years of age who underwent IVF-ET procedures were included(More)
BACKGROUND We investigated the differences in anthropometrical, hormonal and insulin resistance parameters according to the subtype of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in Korean women. METHODS We recruited 166 women with PCOS and retrospectively recruited 277 controls. PCOS was diagnosed by irregular menstruation (IM), polycystic ovary (PCO) and(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the complete metabolic and phenotypic profiles of a large cohort of untreated, consecutively recruited Korean women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), for whom a registry for Korean women with PCOS was constructed. DESIGN Observational study. SETTING Three infertility clinics and 10 university hospitals. PATIENT(S) Eight(More)
Computed tomography (CT) was performed in 140 patients with suspected acute appendicitis. Thin collimation (5 mm), intravenous contrast enhancement, 1-second scan times, and supplementary cecal air insufflation were emphasized. CT accuracy was 98% overall (137/140), and 99% in the 124 cases with early surgery. Necrotizing appendicitis was diagnosed by CT(More)
BACKGROUND The objectives of this study were to define the distribution of the modified Ferriman-Gallwey (mF-G) score in a random group of Korean women and to study any association(s) between hirsutism and endocrine/metabolic markers. METHODS A single investigator assessed the mF-G score prospectively in 1010 Korean women, who consulted a health-care(More)
OBJECTIVE Insulin resistance is a core feature of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Recently, genome-wide association studies have reported a number of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with reproducible associations and susceptibilities to type 2 diabetes. We examined the potential association between the diabetogenic genes uncovered in the(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the association between fat mass and obesity-associated (FTO) polymorphisms and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in Korean women. DESIGN Case-control study. SETTING University department of obstetrics and gynecology. PATIENT(S) Women with (n = 552) or without (n = 559) PCOS. INTERVENTION(S) Genotyping was performed. MAIN(More)
INTRODUCTION Prevalence of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) was not well known in female rape victims. AIM To assess the prevalence and correlated factors of STIs--especially Chlamydia trachomatis (CT), Neisseria gonorrhea (NG), and cytomegalovirus (CMV) in female rape victims presenting to a dedicated regional referral center in South Korea after(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of insulin sensitizing agents on hormonal and metabolic parameters as well as menstrual patterns in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). METHODS One hundred and twenty-three patients with PCOS were included. Metformin was administered to patients at 1,500 mg or 1,700 mg daily for 3(More)
OBJECTIVE TO INVESTIGATE: the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in Korean women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and the relationship between vitamin D status and clinical or metabolic features in this group. METHODS We recruited 38 women with PCOS using the Rotterdam criteria. A total of 109 premenopausal control women were matched with patients(More)
