    To optimize success rates of IVF, selection of the most viable embryo(s) for transfer has always been essential, as embryos that are cryopreserved are thought to have a reduced chance of implanting after thawing. Recent developments challenge this concept. Evidence is accumulating that all...

    Purpose: To determine if blastocyst transfer increases the ongoing and cumulative pregnancy rates, compared with day 3 embryo transfer, in women of all ages when at least 4 zygotes are obtained. Methods: Prospective study including patients undergoing a first IVF/ICSI treatment and assigned to...

    CONTEXT: Most in vitro fertilization (IVF) programs employ embryo cryopreservation to enhance pregnancies from a single ovarian stimulation. More embryos are created, some of which are not transferred to the uterus immediately, generating a need for improved cryopreservation protocols. One...

    Aim: A decrease in the number of transferred embryos has been implanted to reduce the incidence of multi-foetal pregnancy, therefore the number of spare embryos has increased. It has produced a demand for a simple method to cryopreserve human embryos. Vitrification is this method. It has...
