Current management of recurrent pregnancy loss

People with RPL will most likely achieve a live birth in their next pregnancy but should have an individualised approach that identifies and corrects any modifiable risk factors and offers appropriate psychological support.

Ectopic pregnancy in women with recurrent miscarriage

The aim of this study was to investigate the possible association between recurrent miscarriage (RM) and ectopic pregnancy (EP) and to establish a causal relationship between these two types of pregnancies.

Gestational age of pregnancy loss in women with unexplained recurrent miscarriage

The aim of this study was to investigate the gestational age (GA) of pregnancy loss in women with unexplained recurrent miscarriage (RM) and to determine whether the miscarriages occur at similar GA

Hormonal causes of recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL)

In the present article, the significance of endocrine disease on RPL is reviewed and some endocrinological aspects of endometriosis are reviewed.

Significance of Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies in Cases of Recurrent Pregnancy Loss in Patients who are Euthyroid-A Short Communication

Following exclusion of these explained miscarriages, RPL correlates with endocrinopathies, immunological, anatomical as well as inherited genetic causes.

Association of prednisone and antinuclear antibodies with pregnancy outcomes in women with unexplained recurrent pregnancy loss

To investigate the therapeutic role of prednisone in patients having unexplained recurrent pregnancy loss (URPL) with positivity of antinuclear antibodies (ANA) and the relationship between ANA

Although RPL remains unexplained in about 50% of the cases, gynecological, endocrinological, immuno-hematological and genetical factors have been described.

Genetic Factors Associated With Recurrent Pregnancy Loss

According to the Practice Committee of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, for epidemiological studies, three or more pregnancy losses are considered as RPL whereas, for clinical purposes, two pregnancy losses in the first trimester constitute RPL.

Early Pregnancy Loss: A Management Guide

The aim of this article is to outline the causes for recurrent pregnancy loss and available therapies that optimize pregnancy outcomes.

Early pregnancy loss.

Early pregnancy loss is the preferred term encompassing threatened abortion, incomplete abortion, complete abortion, and anembryonic pregnancy, and many causes, including chromosomal abnormalities, immunologic and infectious causes, and underlying maternal risk factors.



Evaluation and management of recurrent early pregnancy loss.

The evaluation begins with an extensive history and physical, followed by a diagnostic screening protocol, which may be warranted earlier if a prior miscarriage was found to be euploid, or if there is concomitant infertility and/or advancing maternal age.

Only a proportion of women presenting with recurrent miscarriage will have a persistent underlying cause for their pregnancy losses, and this incidence is greater than that expected by chance alone.

Intravenous Immunoglobulin for Treatment of Recurrent Pregnancy Loss

To evaluate the efficacy of IVIg for treatment of recurrent SA, a prospective, randomized, double blinded, placebo‐controlled trial was performed.

Evidence-based investigations and treatments of recurrent pregnancy loss.

Management of recurrent pregnancy loss associated with a parental carrier of a reciprocal translocation: a systematic review.

Based on this systematic review, successful pregnancy outcomes are high following either medical management or IVF/PGD for carriers of a reciprocal translocation, ascertained on the basis of recurrent pregnancy loss.

Recurrent miscarriage.

A longitudinal study of pregnancy outcome following idiopathic recurrent miscarriage.

Data from this large study group have enabled accurate prediction of future pregnancy success and have established important gestational milestones for women with idiopathic recurrent miscarriage.

Genetics of recurrent pregnancy loss.

In this article, genetic factors are reviewed in terms of random numerical chromosome errors in miscarriage specimens and carriers of structural chromosome rearrangements that may result in unbalanced chromosomes errors in pregnancies.

Use of intravenous immunoglobulin for treatment of recurrent miscarriage: a systematic review

Intravenous immunoglobulin, a fractionated blood product whose off‐label use for treating a variety of conditions, including spontaneous recurrent miscarriage, has continued to grow in recent years, necessitate improved guidance on its appropriate applications.
