BACKGROUND: Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is a potentially serious complication of ovarian stimulation in assisted reproduction technology (ART). It is characterised by enlarged ovaries and an acute fluid shift from the intravascular space to the third space, resulting in bloating, increased risk of venous thromboembolism and decreased organ perfusion. Most cases are mild, but forms of moderate or severe OHSS appear in 3% to 8% of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) cycles. The dopamine agonist cabergoline was introduced as a secondary prevention intervention for OHSS in women at high risk of OHSS undergoing ART treatment...

STUDY QUESTION: In subfertile women with poor ovarian reserve undergoing IVF does a mild ovarian stimulation strategy lead to comparable ongoing pregnancy rates in comparison to a conventional ovarian stimulation strategy? SUMMARY ANSWER: A mild ovarian stimulation strategy in women with poor ovarian reserve undergoing IVF leads to similar ongoing pregnancy rates as a conventional ovarian stimulation strategy. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: Women diagnosed with poor ovarian reserve are treated with a conventional ovarian stimulation strategy consisting of high-dose gonadotropins and pituitary downregulation with a long mid-luteal start GnRH-agonist protocol...

This is a pilot study performed in a private IVF unit. The objective of the study was to investigate whether luteal support is required in IVF cycles after mild stimulation with clomiphene citrate and low FSH doses. The study included 15 patients with good prognosis (defined as ≤38 years old with normal ovarian reserve and normovulatory cycles, body mass index <29 kg/m(2), no previous cycles, no severe endometriosis, no history of recurrent miscarriage, no endocrine/autoimmune diseases and no surgical semen extraction from the partner) undergoing IVF with mild stimulation...

STUDY QUESTION: Does letrozole use increase the risk of major congenital anomalies and adverse pregnancy and neonatal outcomes in fresh, single-embryo transfer? SUMMARY ANSWER: Letrozole significantly decreases the risk of miscarriage and does not increase the risk of major congenital anomalies or adverse pregnancy or neonatal outcomes compared with natural cycles in patients undergoing ART. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: Letrozole is the most commonly used aromatase inhibitor for mild ovarian stimulation in ART...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to evaluate if gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRHa) trigger is a better alternative to human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) of Indian origin undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles with GnRH antagonist for the prevention of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). DESIGN: Prospective randomized control trial. SETTING: Tertiary care center. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 227 patients diagnosed with PCOS, undergoing IVF in an antagonist protocol were recruited and randomly assigned into two groups: Group A (study group): GnRHa trigger 0...

PURPOSE: Acromegaly in infancy is extremely rare. We describe a 32 year old woman who presented at 6 months of age with isolated macrocephaly, followed by accelerated linear growth. At 21 months of age, her head circumference was 55 cm (+5.5 SD), height was 97.6 cm (+4.4 SD) and weight was 20.6 kg (+6.2 SD). She had markedly elevated levels of growth hormone (GH) (135 ng/ml), IGF-1 (1540 ng/ml) and prolactin (370 ng/ml). A pituitary macroadenoma was surgically resected. Immunohistochemical staining was positive for GH...

INTRODUCTION: The objective of this study was to compare clinical pregnancy rates (PRs) and pregnancy outcomes (POs) in patients undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) and a specific controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (mild-stimulation or mini-stim) and intrauterine insemination (IUI) protocol in women older than 40. METHODS: It is a retrospective chart review of 770 cycles of all women aged 40 and older who underwent a first cycle of either IVF or mini-stim IUI between the years 2007 and 2012 at a single infertility center...

BACKGROUND: Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is a serious and potentially fatal complication of ovarian stimulation which affects 1% to 14% of all in vitro fertilisation (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) cycles. A number of clinical studies with conflicting results have reported on the use of plasma expanders such as albumin, hydroxyethyl starch (HES), mannitol, polygeline and dextran as a possible intervention for the prevention of OHSS. Women with very high estradiol levels, high numbers of follicles or oocytes retrieved, and women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), are at particularly high risk of developing OHSS...

BACKGROUND: Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome is an iatrogenic complication of controlled ovarian stimulation. Early ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome occurs during luteal phase of controlled ovarian stimulation within 9 days after human chorionic gonadotropin trigger and reflects an acute consequence of this hormone on the ovaries. Late ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome occurs 10 or more days after human chorionic gonadotropin trigger and reflects increased endogenous human chorionic gonadotropin levels following pregnancy...

OBJECTIVE: Our study aims to provide evidence for evaluating the efficiency of mild controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH) protocol with clomiphene citrate on ovarian stimulation outcome and pregnancy outcome on poor ovarian respond patients undergoing in vitro fertilization treatment. METHODS: For the current study, a search was carried out for relevant randomized controlled trials (RCTs). This meta-analysis was performed on both COH and pregnancy outcomes following the mild COH protocols (CC/Gn/GnRH antagonist) and conventional COH protocols (Gn/GnRH agonist)...

For women of advanced age with abnormally increased FSH levels, standardized hormonal stimulation often represents a cost-intensive procedure with a low success rate. It is well established now that with mild ovarian stimulation, there is a greater percentage of good-quality eggs (although a smaller number) than with higher-dose conventional stimulation. Mild stimulation protocols reduce the mean number of days of stimulation, the total amount of gonadotropins used and the mean number of oocytes retrieved. The proportion of high-quality and euploid embryos seems to be higher compared with conventional stimulation protocols, and the pregnancy rate per embryo transfer is comparable...

Robert L Rosenfield, David A Ehrmann
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) was hypothesized to result from functional ovarian hyperandrogenism (FOH) due to dysregulation of androgen secretion in 1989-1995. Subsequent studies have supported and amplified this hypothesis. When defined as otherwise unexplained hyperandrogenic oligoanovulation, two-thirds of PCOS cases have functionally typical FOH, characterized by 17-hydroxyprogesterone hyperresponsiveness to gonadotropin stimulation. Two-thirds of the remaining PCOS have FOH detectable by testosterone elevation after suppression of adrenal androgen production...

The polycystic ovary syndrome is a common endocrine disorder which influences outcome and potential risks involved with controlled ovarian stimulation for artificial reproductive techniques (ART). Concrete practical recommendations for the dosage of gonadotropins, the preferred protocol and preventive methods to avoid ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) are lacking. We present retrospective data of 235 individually calculated gonadotropin low-dose stimulations for ART in a single center from 2012 to 2014...

REVIEW

Minimal and mild endometriosis (stages I/II) is frequently identified in subfertile patients, especially in case of unexplained infertility. The impact of those lesions on fecundity is still debatted and they have been considered as paraphysiological by some experts. In addition, they are heterogenous with variable spread, biological activity, induced inflammation and, sometimes, the presence of associated mild adhesions. Stages I/II endometriosis are the most frequent endometriotic lesions encountered in subfertile women...
