CASE We present two cases representing alternative management options of low LMP of the fallopian tube. CONCLUSION Although low malignant potential tumors of the ovary are relatively common, there are few reported cases of(More)
Assisted reproductive technologies are important tools in the clinical armamentarium used to treat both female and male infertility disorders. Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis offers couples at risk of having children with inheritable disorders the ability to analyze the genetic make-up of embryos before transfer. For patients undergoing treatment of(More)
Retinol (ROL) and its biologically active metabolite, all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA), are essential for a number of reproductive processes. However, there is a paucity of information regarding their roles in ovarian folliculogenesis, oocyte maturation, and early embryogenesis. The objectives of this study were to quantify and compare peripheral plasma (PP)(More)
Athletic women are at risk for developing ovulatory dysfunction, which presents variably as menstrual irregularity or absence. Initially characterized as an isolated disruption of hypothalamic gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) release, athletic amenorrhea, a form of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, is invariably accompanied by additional neuroendocrine(More)
Retinoids are essential for ovarian steroid production and oocyte maturation in mammals. Oocyte competency is known to positively correlate with efficient gap junction intercellular communication (GJIC) among granulosa cells in the cumulus-oocyte complex. Connexin 43 (C x 43) is the main subunit of gap junction channels in human cumulus granulosa cells(More)
