Description

Assisted Reproduction is a specialty undergoing rapid change as new technologies are introduced and new research challenges previous treatment options. This text examines a selection of controversial topics for both laboratory and clinical practice and tries to place them in perspective, so readers can understand how and why the current state of the question has come about and how future contributions to the debate should be measured. All physicians involved with the technologies concerned will learn from the expert contributions assembled here.

CONTENTS: The use of ovarian markers * The use of molecular markers of endometrial receptivity * The use of GnRHa for triggering final oocyte maturation during ovarian stimulation cycles * The use of time-lapse embryo imaging in ART practice * The use of cryopreservation for all embryos * The use of Pre-implantation Genetic Screening * The use of Single Embryo Transfer * The use of luteal-phase support * Measuring safety and efficiency in IVF * To flush follicles during egg collection or not? * The use of blastocyst culture * The use of mitochondrial donation * Controversies in recurrent implantation failure: from theory to practice * Fibroids - to remove or not? * Limitations of endometrioma surgery in IVF: Possibilities of early disease control
