OBJECTIVE To assess the discriminative capacity of Chlamydia antibody titers in the diagnosis of tubed pathology in subfertile patients. DESIGN Meta-analysis of studies comparing Chlamydia antibody titers and laparoscopy for tubal patency and peritubal adhesions. PATIENTS A total of 2,729 patients with subfertility in 23 studies. INTERVENTION(S) Chlamydia antibody titer and laparoscopy as part of subfertility work-up. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE Sensitivity and specificity of Chlamydia… CONTINUE READING
