BACKGROUND: Twin pregnancies are at higher risks of velamentous cord insertion and vasa previa. In vitro fertilization is an additional risk factor of abnormal cord insertion and thus the incidence of vasa previa is likely to increase over the next decades. OBJECTIVE: We sought to evaluate the role of ultrasound imaging in optimizing the management of twins diagnosed with vasa previa antenatally. STUDY DESIGN: We searched our database for twin pregnancies diagnosed with vasa previa and managed antenatally using measurements of cervical length and performed a systematic review of articles that correlated prenatal diagnosis of vasa previa in twins and pregnancy outcome...

Transgenic pigs have become an attractive research model in the field of translational research, regenerative medicine, and stem cell therapy due to their anatomic, genetic and physiological similarities with humans. The development of fluorescent proteins as molecular tags has allowed investigators to track cell migration and engraftment levels after transplantation. Here we describe the development of two transgenic pig models via SCNT expressing a fusion protein composed of eGFP and porcine Histone 2B (pH2B)...

The objective was to investigate the effect of short-term (7 days) and long-term (14 days) progesterone-based estrus synchronization on number of follicles, progesterone concentrations, cumulus-oocyte complex (COC) gene expression, and embryonic development in goats. Nulliparous Thai-native goats (n = 45) were randomly assigned to one of two estrus synchronization treatments. Goats were treated with intravaginal sponges containing 60-mg medroxyprogesterone acetate (MAP; Synchrogest esponjas, Spain) during 7 or 14 days (short-term or long-term protocol, respectively)...

BACKGROUND: Implantation failure of blastocyst is one of the main reasons of failure to become pregnancy following use of Assisted Reproductive Techniques. HLA-G, one of the non-classic HLA subtypes, seems to have a vital role in neutralizing of mother immune system. According to importance of ins/del polymorphism of HLA-G in regulation of HLA-G expression, it seems that this polymorphism has an important effect in immune response against embryo, and so success of embryo implantation...

Hydrosalpinx has a detrimental effect on the outcome of in vitro fertilization (IVF). Surgical intervention such as salpingectomy or tubal occlusion before IVF improves the outcome of IVF, but these procedures are often contraindicated in women with dense pelvic adhesions. Thus, it is worthwhile to search minimally invasive alternative therapies. The main objective of this review is to assess and compare the value of all the therapeutic options for hydrosalpinx before IVF. The results of the following procedures were compared: the laparoscopic treatments (salpingectomy/proximal tubal occlusion), the hysteroscopic insertion of device achieving tubal occlusion, the tuberous sclerosis and the aspiration of hydrosalpingeal fluid at the time of IVF procedure...

BACKGROUND: Administration of exogenous progesterone for luteal phase support has become a standard of practice. Intramuscular (IM) injections of progesterone in oil (PIO) and vaginal administration of progesterone are the primary routes of administration. This report describes the administration preferences expressed by women with infertility that were given progesterone vaginal insert (PVI) or progesterone in oil injections (PIO) for luteal phase support during fresh IVF cycles. METHODS: A questionnaire to assess the tolerability, convenience, and ease of administration of PVI and PIO given for luteal phase support was completed by infertile women diagnosed with PCOS and planning to undergo IVF...

The major rate-limiting step in in vitro fertilization (IVF) success appears to be the implantation of the semi-allogeneic embryo into the maternal endometrium. To determine possible risk factors of recurrent failure of embryos to implant, we investigated immunogenetic determinants as level of human leukocyte antigen (HLA) histocompatibility, frequency of killer-cell immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIR) and HLA-C alleles and HLA-G polymorphism. We DNA typed women with recurrent implantation failure (RIF) and their partners for classical HLA Class I, HLA Class II, HLA-G and KIR alleles and compared these results with couples with successful embryo implantation after their first IVF and normal fertile couples...

We present two cases of endometrioid adenocarcinoma grade I, FIGO IA (staging according to the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics) in young women, diagnosed within endometrial polyps. Both patients underwent repeated hysteroscopies and multiple biopsies after initial treatment to medroxyprogesterone one 400 mg daily or the insertion of IUD-LND (intrauterine device-levonorgestrel) for three months. In both of them, all histological samples were negative. Both of them decided that they would try to conceive...

Velamentous and furcate cord insertion with concomitant placenta accreta is a very rare and life-threatening event of pregnancy for both the mother and the fetus. Obstetricians should be cautious about umbilical cord insertion and placental adherence abnormalities in pregnancies conceived by assisted reproductive technologies (ART) particularly in women with Müllerian anomalies.

A successful pregnancy is the greatest goal for reproductive medicine. The probability that pregnancy occurs during a cycle of assisted reproduction is a function of multiple factors, of which embryo transfer is one of the most critical steps in these treatments. This article reports a case of successful pregnancy and twin delivery by transmyometrial embryo transfer after IVF in a woman with a neocavity parallel to the uterine cavity, which prevented the transfer of embryos to the correct place. The patient first went to another fertility centre where embryo transfer was impossible to perform because the cervix could not be canalized...

Posterior lateral endoscopic nucleotomy is widely accepted as a minimally invasive surgery for lumbar disc herniation, but few studies have compared the transforaminal approach using two different techniques, YESS and TESSYS. One hundred and fifty lumbar IVFs of cadaveric spines were studied. Eighteen-gauge needles were inserted percutaneously toward IVFs into the discs by either YESS or TESSYS. The distances from the needle to the nerve root and from the needle to the spinal dura were measured and compared across different spinal segments...

BACKGROUND: Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) are routinely used in women with hyperemesis gravidarum. However, little is known about the consequences of PICC insertion in these patients. Our aim was to analyze PICC-related complication rates among pregnant women. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Pregnant women with PICC insertion between January 2000 and June 2006 were studied retrospectively. Infusate type, comorbid conditions, and PICC duration were characterized...

The haptoglobin (Hp) protein has been implicated in various aspects of reproduction. One possible mechanism is through its effect on angiogenesis. Angiogenesis plays a major role in follicle production. The Hp insertion polymorphism results in the production of Hp proteins denoted Hp 1-1, 2-1, and 2-2, with markedly different angiogenic activities. We sought to determine if the number of oocytes aspirated during in vitro fertilization is related to the Hp type and to compare clinical data and treatment outcomes...

This case report outlines a successful pregnancy after proximal occlusion of a fallopian tube with Adiana(®) micro-insert in a patient with hydrosalpinx. A 32-year-old nulligravid patient with pelvic adhesive disease and unilateral hydrosalpinx underwent a successful occlusion of the hydrosalpinx by Adiana(®) matrix with a pregnancy after IVF cycle. Adiana(®) hysteroscopic tubal occlusion device can be used prior to IVF and seems to be an alternative to Essure(®) procedure. The theoretical advantage of Adiana(®) is the ability to maintain a uterine cavity free of all foreign matter...
