TYPE OF STUDY: Summary review and a case report. SETTINGS: GEST IVF, Centre of Reproductive Medicine, Prague. INTRODUCTION: In scientific literature there two syndrome have been described in the presence of pure 46,XY karyotype when an individual is phenotypically and psychosexually identified as a woman. Androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS) and pure gonadal dysgenesis XY (GD XY, Swyer syndrome). Thanks to the presence of a uterus in Swyer syndrome we can treat this type of sterility with donated oocytes...

OBJECTIVE: To study the association of perinatal outcome and IVF transfer type in a group of infertility patients with standardized treatment and similar prognosis. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. SETTING: University-based infertility center, January 1998 to June 2006. PATIENT(S): Two hundred eighteen IVF pregnancies after fresh embryo transfer (ET); 122 IVF pregnancies after frozen ET. INTERVENTION(S): Assessment of perinatal outcome in fresh versus frozen ET pregnancies...

OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that serum or intrafollicular concentrations of adrenomedullin (AM) would correlate with reproductive outcomes in in vitro fertilisation (IVF) cycles. DESIGN: Serum and follicular fluid samples were collected during transvaginal oocyte retrieval. The follicular fluid was individually aspirated, and the presence of oocyte was recorded. AM concentrations were measured using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. SETTING: Department of Gynaecology, Perinatology and Child Health, 'Sapienza' University of Rome, Italy...

BACKGROUND: Exposure to prenatal stress is associated with later adverse health and adjustment outcomes. This is generally presumed to arise through early environmentally mediated programming effects on the foetus. However, associations could arise through factors that influence mothers' characteristics and behaviour during pregnancy which are inherited by offspring. METHOD: A 'prenatal cross-fostering' design where pregnant mothers are related or unrelated to their child as a result of in vitro fertilization (IVF) was used to disentangle maternally inherited and environmental influences...

OBJECTIVE: To report a case of delayed delivery of twins following pelvic abscess that required laparotomy after uncomplicated IVF-ET. DESIGN: Case report. SETTING: Department of Perinatology. PATIENT(S): A 32-year-old nulliparous woman after IVF-ET. INTERVENTION(S): In vitro fertilization and ET, laparotomy, observation in the hospital. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Delayed delivery following pelvic abscess that required laparotomy after uncomplicated IVF-ET...

AIMS: Intracytoplasmic sperm injection is a method of assisted reproduction (AR) covered by Statutory Health Care in Germany, since the guidelines of the concerned health authority (Bundesausschuss der Arzte und Krankenkassen--national board of medical doctors and health care insurance) have been changed in 2002, although open questions concerning its risk profile still exist. It is desirable to consider how collection and handling of data about these treatments can be utilised, so that the risks associated with assisted reproduction can be minimised and procedures be regulated in an adequate manner...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to investigate whether perinatal health outcomes changed during the 1990s with the increasing use of IVF. METHODS: Data were from the Finnish Medical Birth Register for periods 1991-1993 and 1998-1999. Outcomes of IVF infants and other infants were compared, both overall and separately for singleton and multiple births, by adjusting for mothers' background variables by logistic regression. RESULTS: The IVF multiple birth rate, especially the number of triplets, declined from the first (1991-1993) to the second (1998-1999) time-period...

Reproductive genetics (RG) is another new field of medical genetics, integrated with reproductive medicine, assisted reproduction and developmental genetic. RG is closely linked to the perioconceptional prevention, perinatology, ultrasound and biochemical screening in the end of the first and beginning of the second trimesters. RG is based on the system of specialized genetic counseling, clinical cytogenetics, molecular cytogenetics and molecular genetics to provide prefertilization, preimplantation and classical prenatal diagnosis in the Ist to IIIrd trimesters...

Every year, 40.000 preterm babies are born in France, 10.000 of them being born before 33 weeks of gestation. They represent 1.2% of birth rate, but 50% of neonatal mortality. If IVF (in vitro fertilization) is the cause of less than 1% of all births, it is the cause of 7% of very preterm babies. Resuscitation of the very premature born infants has improved their survival rate but led to some adverse outcome. So, it is necessary to design a long term follow-up for children born from IVF, to evaluate the neonatal resuscitation and to improve treatment and care of children with developmental abnormalities...

The obstetrical outcome of 47 pregnancies which was achieved by assisted reproduction techniques was analyzed. 38 were achieved by GIFT and 9 by IVF-ET. In both series we found that the analyzed parameters are similar to those described by other groups. But in discordance with Angle-Saxon groups, in Latino-American series the principal delivery way was by cesarean section.

Progress in modern reproductive medicine has brought much success to infertile couples. A side effect of IVF procedure are multiple pregnancies with clinical, ethical, perinatal and social problems. We report about the first case of quadruplets after IVF born in Austria and try to illustrate the perinatal, social and ethical problems. The 34 year old woman was treated in our sterility outpatient clinic because of secondary sterility. In 1988 finally she underwent IVF procedure. Four oocytes were retrieved by means of vaginal follicle puncture...
