Embryo Transfer

by Gautam N Allahbadia, Rubina Merchant

In this new book, the author drawn on his own clinical experience of infertility and have also brought together the work of some of the foremost authorities whose collective passion is improving implantation rates by refining the technique of Embryo Transfer. The author fifteen years of clinical practice have been focused on improving the embryo transfer technique and in research in the subject. Many women undergoing an assisted reproductive technology (ART) cycle will never achieve a live birth. Failure at the embryo transfer stage may be due to poor embryo quality, lack of uterine receptivity, or the transfer technique itself. Numerous methods, including the use of ultrasound guidance for proper catheter placement in the endometrial cavity, have been suggested as a means of improving the technique of embryo transfer. The use of ultrasound and more so, after the introduction of the soft ultrasonic SureView™ catheters, has greatly impacted clinical results the world over. The introduction of ultrasound into the embryo transfer procedure will be regarded as one of the landmarks of ART in the years to come. The old guard still resists acknowledging ultrasound-guided embryo transfers and is clinging onto the ‘Clinical Touch’ method despite mounting evidence in literature to the contrary. This book has very practical information, which translates into the best contemporary practices for the patient needing an embryo transfer.
