A large body of literature is available concerning association of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and postmenopausal women; to our knowledge, only few publications in purely surgical menopausal women. The aim of this study was to evaluate pulsatility indices (PI) of internal carotid arteries in two groups of surgical menopausal women who underwent HRT vs(More)
OBJECTIVE The effects of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in the natural menopausal period have been extensively studied. However, these effects have almost none been studied in purely surgical menopause. The aim of this study was to measure intima-media thickness (IMT) of carotid arteries bilaterally in two groups of surgical menopausal women who received(More)
To measure the estradiol (E2) and progesterone levels on day of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) and to assess follicular development, pregnancy rates and IVF-ICSI outcomes comparing gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist and antagonist protocols. A total 195 women were included in the study. The patients were treated with agonist or antagonist(More)
Office-based endometrial sampling is the most frequently performed gynaecological procedure. The procedure is usually associated with pain and discomfort. Several anaesthetic and analgesic techniques (e.g., non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, paracervical block, misoprostol and topical anaesthetics) are used for pain management during endometrial(More)
Non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA) is characterised by absence of sperm in the ejaculate. Significant relationship between the pattern of the testis histopathology of NOA and successful sperm retrieval rate is well known. In this study, we assess efficacy of testicular histopathology on sperm retrieval rates and intracytoplasmic sperm injection results after(More)
Oocyte retrieval under transvaginal ultrasonographic guidance has been used for in vitro fertilization-intracytoplasmic sperm injection. Despite considerable advances in the assisted reproductive techniques, the efficacy of follicular flushing during egg collection remains controversial. The aim of this study was to compare the follicular aspiration only(More)
INTRODUCTION Endometriosis can be defined as the presence of endometrial glandular and stromal tissue outside the uterus. Affected sites of endometriosis can even be the urinary tract. Here, we present the case of a 30-year-old woman with right ureteral endometriosis. This case was important due to the unusual localization and no signs of the disease except(More)
BACKGROUND This study assessed the relationship between endometrial thickness on day of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) administration and in vitro fertilizationintracytoplasmic sperm injection (IVF-ICSI). MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective cross-sectional study included a total of 593 women. Patients were treated with either the agonist or(More)
Ovarian pregnancy (OP) after embryo transfer is very rare. Due to the rarity and the asymptomatic nature, there are still difficulties in diagnosis and treatment. The traditional operative treatment for OP has been oophorectomy. However, the desire to maintain reproductive capability and improvements in laparoscopy have more recently led to conservative(More)
