Examining the many potential reasons why euploid blastocysts do not always result in viable pregnancies and deliveries Part 2

Friday, April 1, 2016
A viable delivery requires optimal embryo transfer technique, a receptive and synchronized endometrium, a physiologically and anatomically adequate uterus, and absence of local and circulating factors capable of disrupting implantation.

Value of transferring embryos that show no evidence of fertilization at the time of fertilization assessment

Tuesday, September 1, 2015
Transfer of nonpronuclear (0PN) embryos results in pregnancies and live births. Blastocyst cultures can provide a better way to select normal 0PN embryos for transfer and thus achieve satisfactory outcomes.

Embryo transfer practices and perinatal outcomes by insurance mandate status

Thursday, July 30, 2015
A comprehensive infertility insurance mandate was associated with increased use of assisted reproductive technology; however, more embryos were transferred in states without a mandate compared with in the mandate state.

Ectopic pregnancy after in vitro fertilization Differences between fresh and frozen-thawed cycles

Monday, June 29, 2015
We discuss how embryo transfers in cycles without ovarian hyperstimulation are associated with lower rates of ectopic pregnancy compared with fresh autologous cycles, which suggests a difference in the uterine environment.

Lapse in embryo transfer training does not negatively affect clinical pregnancy rates for reproductive endocrinology and infertility fellows

Friday, February 27, 2015
Clinical pregnancy and live birth rates after embryo transfers performed by reproductive endocrinology and infertility fellows were unchanged after an 18-month lapse in clinical training.

Endometrial infusion of human chorionic gonadotropin at the time of blastocyst embryo transfer does not impact clinical outcomes A randomized double blind placebo controlled trial

Tuesday, November 25, 2014
This randomized double-blinded placebo-controlled trial of 300 patients undergoing fresh or frozen embryo transfer (ET) demonstrates that endometrial human chorionic gonadotropin infusion at the time of blastocyst ET does not improve sustained implantation rate.

How do we decide how many embryos are safe for transfer

Number of embryos for transfer following in vitro fertilization or intracytoplasmic sperm injection Summary of a Cochrane review

Wednesday, July 30, 2014
A policy of repeated single embryo transfer may minimize the risk of multiple pregnancy without substantially reducing live birth rates.

Are we ready to eliminate the transfer of fresh embyos in in vitro fertilization

Wednesday, June 25, 2014
The rationale to freeze all embryos to avoid transfer into a supraphysiologic environment to improve safety and efficacy is compelling, but not yet proven. How do we decide?

Cryopreservation and delayed embryo transfer Assisted reproductive technology registry and reporting implications

Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Some assisted reproductive technology cycles designated as “embryo banking” have been excluded from public reports. The Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have collaborated to recapture these cycles.

Cryopreservation of human embryos and its contribution to in vitro fertilization success rates

Wednesday, June 25, 2014
The success rates after frozen-thawed embryo transfer are nearing those of fresh transfer in assisted reproductive technology cycles. Randomized controlled trials should determine whether fresh transfers should be abandoned.

Cervical mucus removal prior to embryo transfer in women undergoing in vitro fertilization intracytoplasmic sperm injection A systematic review and meta analysis of randomized controlled trials

Wednesday, April 30, 2014
There is very little evidence of an overall benefit of cervical mucus removal before embryo transfer for women undergoing in vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection.

Bed rest after embryo transfer negatively affects in vitro fertilization a randomized controlled clinical trial

Friday, August 30, 2013
Immediate ambulation after embryo transfer in in vitro fertilization obtained higher live-born infant rates than bed rest, which denotes the negative effect of bed rest after embryo transfer on treatment outcome.

Effect of mood states and infertility stress on patients attitudes toward embryo transfer and multiple pregnancy

Wednesday, July 31, 2013
Changes in mood during IVF treatment are associated with changes in perceived risk and in attitudes toward multiple pregnancy, but they do not necessarily result in a shift in transfer preferences.

Efficacy of intrauterine inseminations as a training modality for performing embryo transfer in reproductive endocrinology and infertility fellowship programs

Wednesday, July 31, 2013
Pregnancy rates for the first 100 ETs performed by reproductive endocrinology and infertility fellows were unchanged after an IUI training requirement. The substantial variation noted among fellows decreased as more ETs were completed.

Friday, June 8, 2012
In this retrospective, observational, cohort study with 2,555 women, a rise of serum P levels on the day of hCG administration was associated with a reduced live birth rate after day-5 fresh ET.
