The conflicting results from studies on the predictive capabilities of serum anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) for IVF pregnancy outcomes may be attributed to small sample sizes and disparities in the age of the study populations. The relationship between AMH and IVF pregnancy outcomes was clarified with retrospective cross-tabulation analyses (n=1558)(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the utility and safety of in vitro fertilization (IVF) with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) in human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) serodiscordant couples. DESIGN Retrospective study. SETTING University-based practice. PATIENT(S) HIV-1 seropositive men and seronegative women undergoing IVF-ICSI.IVF-ICSI, HIV testing of(More)
The objective of this study was to assess the safety and to make a preliminary assessment of the efficacy of 0.5% ferric hyaluronate adhesion prevention gel in reducing adhesions in patients undergoing peritoneal cavity surgery by laparotomy, with a planned 'second-look' laparoscopy. The study was a randomized, open-label, placebo-controlled, parallel-group(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the treatment efficacy of using IVF-intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) in HIV serodiscordant couples interested in having children while minimizing the risk of viral transmission. This study reviews the cases of HIV serodiscordant couples (n = 142) seeking fertility treatment at an assisted reproductive centre.(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate what hormonal or biochemical parameters are most highly associated with the finding of polycystic-appearing ovaries as compared with normal-appearing ovaries in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). DESIGN Prospective randomized study. SETTING Academic medical center. PATIENTS Ten women with PCOS-five with normal-appearing(More)
The reported histopathologic findings in leiomyomas treated with leuprolide acetate (LA) differ. We examined 233 myomectomy specimens, including 107 myomas from 30 patients (mean age, 34.7 +/- 4.6 years) treated with LA. Their histopathologic findings were compared with those from a control group of 126 myomas from 30 untreated patients (mean age 32.7 +/-(More)
Objective: To assess the reproductive performance of men co-infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) undergoing assisted reproduction. Design: A retrospective analysis. Setting: University-based assisted reproductive technology (ART) center. Patients: We reviewed 217 consecutive ART cycles performed on 106 HIV-1(More)
BACKGROUND The study aim was to determine whether supraphysiological estradiol (E(2)) levels reduce oocyte/embryo quality in oocyte donation cycles. METHODS A retrospective analysis of 330 consecutive fresh oocyte donation cycles was performed in an assisted reproductive treatment programme between January 1996 and December 2000. Throughout the study(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the occurrence of an unusual case of successful pregnancy achieved by oocyte donation in a woman > 60 years of age. DESIGN Case report. SETTING University-based assisted reproductive technology program. PATIENT(S) Sixty-three-year old nulligravida, married for 16 years to her 60-year-old husband. Throughout her infertility(More)
An open label, randomized, multi-centre study was performed to compare cetrorelix and leuprolide acetate for prevention of premature LH surge and to assess whether patients treated with cetrorelix benefit from addition of recombinant human (r-h)LH. Normo-ovulatory women (n = 74) undergoing ovarian stimulation prior to intracytoplasmic sperm injection were(More)
