One year followup of serum antimüllerian hormone levels in patients with cystectomy are different sequential changes due to different mechanisms causing damage to the ovarian reserve

Wednesday, July 31, 2013
After cystectomy for endometriomas, the decreased serum antimullerian hormone level can recover; removal of the ovarian cortex may be involved in the ovarian reserve decrease just after surgery.

Prediction of an excessive response in in vitro fertilization from patient characteristics and ovarian reserve tests and comparison in subgroups An individual patient data meta analysis

Wednesday, July 31, 2013
This IPD meta-analysis demonstrates that AFC and AMH add value to age in predicting excessive response to ovarian hyperstimulation and that the accuracy of some ovarian reserve tests is affected by age.

Why we may abandon basal follicle stimulating hormone testing A sea change in determining ovarian reserve using antimüllerian hormone

Friday, May 31, 2013
Antimullerian hormone is a more informative and therefore a better serum test of ovarian reserve than basal FSH.

Polymorphisms in gonadotropin and gonadotropin receptor genes as markers of ovarian reserve and response in in vitro fertilization

Monday, March 18, 2013
Some genetic polymorphisms are associated with ovarian response to gonadotropin administration and exhibit potential for a pharmacogenetic approach in ovarian stimulation. In contrast, ovarian reserve seems to be independent of gonadotropin variants.

Pretreatment antimullerian hormone levels determine rate of posttherapy ovarian reserve recovery Acute changes in ovarian reserve during and after chemotherapy

Monday, February 4, 2013
Young women undergoing chemotherapy experience acute changes in ovarian reserve that recover in the months after therapy is completed. The rate of recovery of AMH is impacted by pretreatment levels.

Surgical excision of endometriomas and ovarian reserve A systematic review on serum antimullerian hormone level modifications

Thursday, November 29, 2012
Eleven studies have been published on serum AMH levels after surgical excision of ovarian endometriomas. Most of them documented a significant decrease after surgery, thus supporting surgery-related damage to ovarian reserve.

Interpreting human follicular recruitment and antimullerian hormone concentrations throughout life

Thursday, November 1, 2012
The relationships between primordial follicles, follicular recruitment, and circulating AMH are dynamic, reflecting the different stages of the reproductive lifespan. This article discusses these relationships and their clinical implications.

Mesial side ovarian incision for laparoscopic dermoid cystectomy A safe and ovarian tissue preserving technique

Thursday, November 1, 2012
Considering the greater ovarian cortical thickness at the mesial side, this incision could provide better identification of the cleavage plane, reducing cyst rupture risk and also sparing ovarian residual function.

Women with Reduced Ovarian Reserve or Advanced Maternal Age have an Altered Follicular Environment

Thursday, September 27, 2012
Women with reduced ovarian reserve or advanced maternal age have altered follicular cell metabolism, which is reflected in follicular fluid composition. This may represent a mechanism for reduced oocyte quality.

Antimüllerian hormone levels are independently related to ovarian hyperandrogenism and polycystic ovaries

Thursday, June 28, 2012
Antimullerian hormone (AMH) levels correlate independently with polycystic ovaries and ovarian hyperandrogenism. AMH levels in PCOS overlap those in volunteers with normal-variant polycystic ovaries. Only substantial AMH elevations are diagnostic of PCOS.
