A multi-centre international study of salivary hormone oestradiol and progesterone measurements in ART monitoring.
Sakkas D, Howles CM, Atkinson L, Borini A, Bosch EA, Bryce C, Cattoli M, Copperman AB, de Bantel AF, French B, Gerris J, Granger SW, Grzegorczyk-Martin V, Lee JA, Levy MJ, Matin MJ, Somers S, Widra EA, Alper MM.Reprod Biomed Online. 2021 Feb;42(2):421-428.
A blind validation is presented of a novel saliva-based oestradiol and progesterone assay carried out in samples collected in independent IVF clinics. Salivary oestradiol hormone testing correlates well to serum-based assessment, whereas progesterone values, around the time of trigger, are not consistent from patient to patient.
Penile low intensity shock wave treatment for PDE5I refractory erectile dysfunction: a randomized double-blind sham-controlled clinical trial.
Vinay J, Moreno D, Rajmil O, Ruiz-Castañe E, Sanchez-Curbelo J.World J Urol. 2021 Jun;39(6):2217-2222.
Obtained results of this randomized double-blind sham-controlled clinical trial has shown that penile electromagnetic shockwave therapy may improve erectile function, to a modest extent, on certain patients that do not respond to PDE5I; making it an alternative for vascular ED patients that reject more invasive therapies.
Economic evaluation of highly purified human menotropin or recombinant follicle-stimulating hormone for controlled ovarian stimulation in high-responder patients: analysis of the Menopur in Gonadotropin-releasing Hormone Antagonist Single Embryo Transfer-High Responder (MEGASET-HR) trial.
Robins JC, Khair AF, Widra EA, Alper MM, Nelson WW, Foster ED, Sinha A, Ando M, Heiser PW, Daftary GS.F S Rep. 2020 Nov 10;1(3):257-263.
This study has shown that treatment of predicted high-responders with highly purified human menotropin (HP-hMG) or recombinant follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) was associated with lower cost to achieve a live birth after first transfer compared with recombinant FSH.
Use of low dose vaginal misoprostol in office hysteroscopy: a pre-post interventional study.
New EP, Sarkar P, Mikhail E, Plosker S, Imudia AN.J Obstet Gynaecol. 2021 Aug;41(6):972-976.
Our study found that the use of low dose vaginal misoprostol prior to office hysteroscopy is associated with lower reported pain and tenaculum utilisation during the procedure. However, vaginal misoprostol prior to successive office hysteroscopy and endometrial biopsy failed to decrease the reported pain, and the overall pain score was higher than hysteroscopy alone.
The Utility of Sperm Cryopreservation at the Time of Vasectomy Reversal.
Marinaro J, Hayden RP, Shin P, Tanrikut C.J Urol. 2021 Jan;205(1):236-240.
Of those patients who experienced vasectomy reversal failure 50% elected to use cryopreserved sperm that had been procured at the time of initial reversal. Given the potential for early or late failure, cryopreservation of sperm at the time of vasectomy reversal should be routinely offered as a means of avoiding the added expense and potential morbidity of future surgical sperm retrieval.
Clarifying the relationship between total motile sperm counts and intrauterine insemination pregnancy rates.
Muthigi A, Jahandideh S, Bishop LA, Naeemi FK, Shipley SK, O’Brien JE, Shin PR, Devine K, Tanrikut C.Fertil Steril. 2021 Jun;115(6):1454-1460.
Analysis of 92,471 insemination cycles from 37,553 patients were included in this study found that IUI pregnancy is optimized with TMSC of 9 million, below which the rates gradually decline. Although rare, pregnancies were achieved with TMSC of<0.25 million.
Intramuscular progesterone optimizes live birth from programmed frozen embryo transfer: a randomized clinical trial.
Devine K, Richter KS, Jahandideh S, Widra EA, McKeeby JL.Fertil Steril. 2021 Sep;116(3):633-643.
These are the final published results of our Sustain study, which has enabled us to provide equivalently high FET success rates with a more patient-friendly progesterone regimen.
Gestational carrier pregnancy outcomes from frozen embryo transfer depending on the number of embryos transferred and preimplantation genetic testing: a retrospective analysis.
Namath A, Jahandideh S, Devine K, O’Brien JE, Stillman RJ.Fertil Steril. 2021 Jun;115(6):1471-1477.
Frozen embryo transfer cycles in GCs with DET were associated with more preterm births and lower birth weights compared with those of SET. Intended parents and GCs should be counseled that DET is associated with greater risks of adverse pregnancy and perinatal outcomes, which mitigates higher live birth rates. The use of PGT-A did not appear to improve the live birth rate. 583 FET cycles were analyzed.
Karyotypic abnormalities and Y chromosome microdeletions: How do these impact in vitro fertilization outcomes, and how common are they in the modern in vitro fertilization practice?
Carpinello OJ, Marinaro J, Hill MJ, Decherney AH, Devine K, Chason R.F S Rep. 2021 Jun 11;2(3):300-307.
Authors of this study concluded that it is reasonable to attempt IVF-ICSI with partner sperm in patients with genetic causes of male infertility. Patients should be counseled regarding the possibility of no sperm being available from the male partner, poor/failed fertilization, and genetic implications for potential offspring. Contingency plans, including IVF with donor sperm backup or oocyte cryopreservation, need to be made for these scenarios.
Donor oocyte recipients do not benefit from preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy (PGT-A) to improve pregnancy outcomes. N Doyle, Mi Gainty, J Doyle, H Hayes, M Tucker, K Devine, A DeCherney, M Levy, S Jahandideh, MJ Hill. Human Reproduction. 2020.
An abnormal number of chromosomes in an embryo (either too many, or too few) will likely cause failed implantation or miscarriage. As a female enters her mid to late 30’s, the quality of her eggs begins to significantly decline, making conception and a resulting live birth, more difficult to achieve. For this reason, many women in this age group, using their own eggs, utilize PGT-A testing to identify chromosomally normal embryos for transfer, increasing their chances of success. In this study researchers found, PGT-A testing of embryos resulting from an egg donor, a women in her twenties with presumably higher quality eggs, did not improve the likelihood of live birth for recipients. This outcome suggests in many situations, embryo testing, with its additional time required and expense is not beneficial when using the egg of a donor.
Endometriosis does not impact live birth rates in frozen embryo transfers of euploid blastocysts. LA Bishop, J Gunn, S Jahandideh, K Devine, A DeCherney, MJ Hill. Fertil Steril. 2020.
The findings of this study demonstrate that the presence of Endometriosis alone does not impact the pregnancy or live birth rates in frozen embryo transfers nor does it impact the percentage of embryos that are chromosomally normal. This study looked at frozen embryo transfers using chromosomally normal (euploid) blastocyst stage embryos. The observation is significant for understanding the proper management of infertile women with endometriosis.
Does ovarian stimulation benefit ovulatory women undergoing therapeutic donor insemination? O Carpinello, S Jahandideh, M Yamasaki, MJ Hill, AH DeCherney, N Stentz, KS Moon, K Devine. Fertil Steril. 2020.
Natural cycle IUI should be considered as a first line treatment for women who ovulate regularly and plan to use donor sperm inseminations. This study shows ovarian stimulation in donor sperm insemination cycles, resulted in a < 4% increase in clinical pregnancy rates and < 1% increase in ongoing pregnancy. While the rates of ongoing pregnancy are similar to that of stimulated cycles, the chance of an ongoing multiple gestation pregnancy (twins or triplets) is four times higher.
The Utility of Sperm Cryopreservation at the Time of Vasectomy Reversal. J Marinaro, RP Hayden, P Shin, CJ Tanrikut. J Urol. 2020.
Cryopreservation of sperm at the time of vasectomy reversal should be routinely offered as a means of avoiding the added expense and potential side effects seen with surgical sperm retrieval. This study found of patients who experienced vasectomy reversal failure, 50% elected to use cryopreserved sperm that had been procured at the time of initial reversal.
Penile low intensity shock wave treatment for PDE5I refractory erectile dysfunction: a randomized double-blind sham-controlled clinical trial. J Vinay, D Moreno, O Rajmil, E Ruiz-Castañe, J Sanchez-Curbelo. World J Urol. 2020.
This study showed that penile electromagnetic shockwave therapy may improve erectile function, to a modest extent, on certain patients that do not respond to PDE5I (Viagra); making it an alternative for vascular erectile disfunction patients that reject more invasive therapies.
Is transferring a lower-quality embryo with a good-quality blastocyst detrimental to the likelihood of live birth? MJ Hill, AE Eubanks, JM Csokmay, AY Christy, S Jahandideh, AH DeCherney, K Devine, ED Levens, MT Connell. Fertil Steril. 2020;114(2):338-345.
Transferring a lower quality embryo along with a good-quality embryo at the same time, results in a small increase in live births. However, this is at the expense of an increased risk of the likelihood of multiples (twin, triplet) gestations
Post deployment Fertility Challenges and Treatment in the Modern Era. JA Lentscher, JC Combs, K Walker, CM Young, R Chason. Semin Reprod Med. 2019;37(5-06):239-245.

Mature Follicle Count and Multiple Gestation Risk Based on Patient Age in Intrauterine Insemination Cycles With Ovarian Stimulation. MB Evans, NC Stentz, KS Richter, B Schexnayder, M Connell, MW Healy, K Devine, E Widra, R Stillman, AH DeCherney, MJ Hill. Obstet Gynecol. 2020;135(5):1005-1014.
Caution should be used in proceeding with insemination after ovarian stimulation when there are more than two mature follicles in women younger than age 40 years due to the substantially increased risk of multiple gestation without an improved chance of singleton clinical pregnancy.
The Role of the Urologist in a Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Practice. PJ Cheng, C Tanrikut. Urol Clin North Am. 2020;47(2):185-191.
This study found, when male factor infertility is part of an infertility diagnosis, selecting a fertility center with both reproductive urologist and reproductive endocrinologist allows for simultaneous treatment that is easier and more convenient for patients.
Public reporting of IVF outcomes influences medical decision-making and physician training. S Gunderson, ES Jungheim, CB Kallen, K Omurtag. Fertil Res Pract. 2020;6:1.
The intention of publicly reporting treatment outcomes (SART or CDC), is to drive improvement to fertility treatment, promote trust between patients and their medical providers, and inform consumers before selecting their fertility center of choice. This study found that public reporting of treatment outcomes, also resulted in providers modifying their practice, limited participation of trainees in procedures, and the perception that other physicians denied care to poor-prognosis patients in an attempt to have the best possible reported treatment outcomes.
Association between preoperative adenomyosis detection rate during pelvic ultrasonography and the Specialty of the Reading Physician. N Tamhane, M McDowell, M Oliva, JP Tanner, L Hochberg, M Baker M, A Imudia and E Mikhail. J Minim Invasive Gynecol. 2020;27(2):504-509.
Ultrasound evaluation for detecting adenomyosis should be performed by gynecologic expert sonologists. This study found, the detection rate of adenomyosis, a condition in which the inner lining of the uterus breaks through the muscle wall of the uterus, was significantly higher when ultrasound was performed by an expert gynecologic sonologists compared with radiologists. The presence of uterine fibroids, benign tumors of the uterus, significantly decreased detection rates of adenomyosis regardless of specialty.
