Pregnancies after intracytoplasmic injection of single spermatozoon into an oocyte
TLDR
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection is used to treat couples with infertility because of severely impaired sperm characteristics, and in whom IVF and SUZI had failed. Expand
Clinical implications of uterine malformations and hysteroscopic treatment results.
TLDR
It seems, therefore, that hysteroscopic septum resection can be applied as a therapeutic procedure in cases of symptomatic patients but also as a prophylactic procedure in asymptomatic patients in order to improve their chances for a successful delivery. Expand
Neonatal data on a cohort of 2889 infants born after ICSI (1991-1999) and of 2995 infants born after IVF (1983-1999).
TLDR
The comparison of ICSI and IVF children taking part in an identical follow-up study did not show any increased risk of major malformations and neonatal complications in the ICSi group. Expand
Comparison of blastocyst transfer with or without preimplantation genetic diagnosis for aneuploidy screening in couples with advanced maternal age: a prospective randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
This RCT provides no arguments in favour of PGD-AS for improving clinical outcome per initiated cycle in patients with AMA when there are no restrictions in the number of embryos to be transferred. Expand
Prenatal testing in ICSI pregnancies: incidence of chromosomal anomalies in 1586 karyotypes and relation to sperm parameters.
TLDR
Couples should be informed of the risks of an abnormal result related to sperm quality, and of the risk linked to a prenatal procedure as well as about the relatively benign character of some chromosomal anomalies such as de-novo structural anomalies or sex chromosome anomalies in order to be able to make a choice for prenatal testing, or not.

Pregnancies after testicular sperm extraction and intracytoplasmic sperm injection in non-obstructive azoospermia.
TLDR
In this study, a total of 15 azoospermic patients suffering from testicular failure were treated with a combination of testicular sperm extraction (TESE) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and three ongoing pregnancies out of 12 replacements were established. Expand
High fertilization and implantation rates after intracytoplasmic sperm injection
TLDR
High pregnancy rates were noticed since 67 pregnancies were achieved, of which 53 were clinical, i.e. a total and clinical pregnancy rate of 44.7% and 35.3% per started cycle and 49.6% and 39.2% per embryo transfer. Expand
Cytogenetics of infertile men.
TLDR
To be able to provide proper counselling for those couples whose male infertility can now be treated by intracytoplasmic sperm injection, it is suggested that clinical investigations should include mitotic and meiotic studies, an analysis of the chromosome content of individual spermatozoa and a DNA analysis of blood and spermatozosa to detect partially deleted Y chromosome material. Expand
Clinical outcome following stimulation with highly purified hMG or recombinant FSH in patients undergoing IVF: a randomized assessor-blind controlled trial.
TLDR
Superiority of HP-hMG over rFSH in ongoing pregnancy rate could not be concluded from this study, but non-inferiority was established. Expand
Counselling couples and donors for oocyte donation: the decision to use either known or anonymous oocytes.
TLDR
The Centre for Reproductive Medicine of the Free University of Brussels suggests that couples in need of donor oocytes search for a donor among family and friends in order to avoid a long waiting period. Expand
