PURPOSE: Hyaluronan-enriched transfer medium (HETM) could improve the clinical pregnancy rate (CPR) for patients with repeated implantation failures (RIF). In contrast, there have been seldom reports addressing the potentially beneficial effects of HETM for morphologically poor blastocysts (MPBLs). Our study aimed to evaluate whether the use of HETM would improve the CPR for the patients who were transferred with euploid MPBLs. METHODS: Patients who underwent single euploid blastocyst transfer between July 2020 and June 2022 were enrolled...

PURPOSE: This retrospective cohort study aimed to investigate the value of preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy (PGT-A) as a screening test for patients suffering from unexplained recurrent implantation failure (RIF). METHODS: After screening patients in one reproductive medicine center, twenty-nine, forty-nine and thirty-eight women (< 40 years old) who had suffered unexplained RIF with PGT-A, or RIF without PGT-A, or no RIF with PGT-A were included...

PURPOSE: The development of a seroma after breast cancer surgery is a common postoperative complication seen after simple mastectomy and axillary surgery. We could recently demonstrate that breast cancer patients undergoing a simple mastectomy with subsequent seroma formation developed a T-helper cell increase within the aspirated fluid measured by flow cytometry. The same study revealed a Th2 and/or a Th17 immune response in peripheral blood and seroma fluid of the same patient. Based on these results and within the same study population, we now analyzed the Th2/Th17 cell associated cytokine content as well as the best known clinical important cytokine IL-6...

PURPOSE: Intraoperative cell salvage is central to Patient Blood Management including for lower segment caesarean section. Prior to April 2020, we initiated intraoperative cell salvage during caesarean section based on risk assessment for hemorrhage and patient factors. As the pandemic broadened, we mandated intraoperative cell salvage to prevent peri-partum anemia and potentially reduce blood product usage. We examined the association of routine intraoperative cell salvage on maternal outcomes...

PURPOSE: After living with the COVID-19 pandemic for more than 2 years, the impact of lockdown measures on preterm birth rates is inconsistent according to data from different countries. In this study, rates of preterm-born infants during the time of COVID-19-related lockdowns were analyzed in a tertiary perinatal center at Munich University, Germany. METHODS: We analyzed the number of preterm births, infants, and stillbirths before 37 weeks of gestation during the German COVID-19 lockdown period compared to the same time periods in the years 2018 and 2019 combined...

PURPOSE: This study was conducted to investigate the relationship between cesarean section (CS) offspring and autism spectrum disorders (ASD)/attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). METHODS: Searching of the databases (PubMed, Web of Science, Embase, and Cochrane Library) for studies on the relationship between mode of delivery and ASD/ADHD until August 2022. The primary outcome was the incidence of ASD/ADHD in the offspring. RESULTS: This meta-analysis included 35 studies (12 cohort studies and 23 case-control studies)...

BACKGROUND: Preeclampsia is a common pregnancy complication with serious potential risks for maternal and neonatal health. Early prediction of preeclampsia is crucial for timely prevention, surveillance, and treatment to improve maternal and neonatal outcomes. This systematic review aimed to summarize the available evidence on the prediction of preeclampsia based on Doppler ultrasound of uterine arteries at different gestational ages. METHODS: A systematic literature search and meta-analysis were conducted to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of the pulsatility index of Doppler ultrasound of uterine arteries for predicting preeclampsia...

PURPOSE: The study's aim is to define among a group of ultrasonographic cervical measurements a candidate parameter predictive of successful of induction of labor in term pregnancies with unfavorable cervix. METHODS: This prospective observational study included 141 pregnant women at term with an unfavorable cervix (Bishop score ≤ 6). All patients underwent clinical and ultrasonographic cervical evaluation before dinoprostone induction. Pre-induction cervical assessments included the Bishop score, cervical length, cervical volume, uterocervical angle, and cervical elastographic parameters...

PURPOSE: Pelvic floor disorders are common and associated with pregnancy and childbirth. For restitution of pelvic floor connective tissue and thereby therapy of postpartum pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence, the Restifem® pessary is approved. It supports the anterior vaginal wall behind the symphysis, the lateral sulci and the sacro-uterine ligaments and stabilises the connective tissue. We evaluated the compliance and applicability of Restifem® use in women postpartum in a preventive and therapeutic approach...

PURPOSE: This study investigated the effect of an intervention designed to reduce patients' emotional distress associated with breast biopsy. METHODS: 125 breast biopsy patients receiving standard of care (control group, CG) were compared to 125 patients (intervention group, IG) who received a brochure with information prior to the biopsy and were biopsied by physicians trained in empathic communication. Anxiety was assessed by the State-Anxiety Inventory (STAI-S) at four time points (pre- and post-procedural, pre- and post-histology)...

PURPOSE: The fetal membranes are essential for the maintenance of pregnancy, and their integrity until parturition is critical for both fetal and maternal health. Preterm premature rupture of the membranes (pPROM) is known to be an indicator of preterm birth, but the underlying architectural and mechanical changes that lead to fetal membrane failure are not yet fully understood. The aim of this study was to gain new insights into the anatomy of the fetal membrane and to establish a tissue processing and staining protocol suitable for future prospective cohort studies...

RESEARCH QUESTION: Does complete resection of endometriosis improve embryo quality as assessed by morphokinetic parameters using time-lapse microscopy? DESIGN: For this retrospective study we analysed 237 fertilised, cultured and transferred embryos from 128 fresh IVF and/ or ICSI transfer cycles. Endometriosis was confirmed or excluded by laparoscopy. Patients were stimulated with recombinant FSH using GnRH agonist and antagonist protocols. After fertilisation, a time-lapse incubation system was used for observation...

PURPOSE: Flexible progestin-primed ovarian stimulation (PPOS) protocol is demonstrated to be effective in suppressing premature luteinization in few studies. We aimed to compare fixed and flexible PPOS protocols in preventing premature luteinization in patients with diminished ovarian reserve. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study included patients with a diminished ovarian reserve who were administered PPOS protocols for pituitary suppression during ovarian stimulation in a tertiary center in between January 2019 and June 2022...

PURPOSE: Infants born to mothers with chorioamnionitis (CAM) are at increased risk of developing adverse neurodevelopmental disorders in later life. However, clinical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies examining brain injuries and neuroanatomical alterations attributed to CAM have yielded inconsistent results. We aimed to determine whether exposure to histological CAM in utero leads to brain injuries and alterations in the neuroanatomy of preterm infants using 3.0- Tesla MRI at term-equivalent age...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Limited health literacy (HL) is a risk factor for poor patient outcomes, including pain. Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) is a prevalent disorder affecting up to 25% of women and coexists with multiple overlapping conditions. This study aimed to describe health literacy in women with CPP, primarily correlate HL to pain intensity and pain duration, and secondarily correlate HL to mood symptoms and pain catastrophizing. We hypothesized that women with CPP with higher HL would report lower levels of pain intensity and duration...
