Increased use of elective single embryo transfer (eSET) can reduce this twin rate. We aimed to utilize a previously published data set and statistical model based on routinely collected clinical data to predict the outcomes of policies that increase the proportion of eSET. METHODS The models allow simultaneous prediction of outcomes from double embryo transfer… CONTINUE READING
