Methods: Over 1000 consecutive unselected ICSI cycleswere divided into four groups according to spermconcentration of their patients: A, cryptozoospermia, 107 patients; B,sperm concentration of ≤ 1×104, 146 patients; C, spermcount of(More)

Purpose: To characterize the differences between twomatched groups of patients treated by ICSI: those pregnantafter all embryos transferred implanted (100% implantationrate) compared with nonpregnant patients. Methods: Twenty-one patients in whom one transferredembryo achieved a singleton pregnancy (group A) and 21pregnant patients to whom two or three(More)
To study whether intravaginal application of seminal plasma after follicle aspiration has the potential to increase implantation and clinical pregnancy rates after IVF-ET. We conducted a prospective, double-blind, placebo-controlled randomized study of 230 patients undergoing IVF-ET cycles. 500 μL of Fresh seminal plasma from the patient’s partner or(More)
