This book reviews important advances that have made the field of assisted reproduction a dynamic subspecialty and provides insight into other exciting areas of research that will continue to revolutionize the field in the future. Assisted reproductive technology (ART) involves the use of medical techniques to tackle infertility. ART includes the usage of procedures such as ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection), IVF (in vitro fertilization), cryopreservation of embryos or gametes, use of fertility medication and so on. This book aims to highlight the most recent advances in assisted conception and highlights ongoing and potential future of this field. This book consists of 42 chapters, which include individualized controlled ovarian stimulation, Luteal phase stimulation, role of adjuvants in controlled ovarian hyperstimulation, endometrial receptivity, procedure in assisted reproductive technology, genetic testing in male infertility, medical management of male infertility, color Doppler in infertility, fertility-enhancing surgeries in ART, recurrent pregnancy loss, regenerative medicine in infertility, oocyte quality, morphokinetics in ART, co-culture techniques in ART, triple parenting etc. The book is a comprehensive learning manual providing important information for both scientists and clinicians. Every chapter is focused on a specific topic and uses international scientific standards of evidence-based medicine.

Surgery, Assisted Reproductive Technologies and Infertility describes the intersection of assisted reproductive technologies (ART) and surgery in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of clinical disorders in reproduction. Unlike many texts currently available, this book provides a road map for management well beyond the how-to for a given problem. It brings you a cogent explanation about the when and why of management. The author balances decision trees and management paradigms with equal weight to surgery and ART as complementary procedures to enhance reproductive potential. He carefully explains options incorporating diagnostic studies into the paradigm that include conventional radiography (eg, hysterosalpingography), two- and three-dimensional ultrasound imaging and MRI analysis. The text includes clear discussion of the rationale for selecting one technique over another and the supporting role for surgery as a prelude to ART or as an appropriate first line management. The text is centered on dividing evaluations in infertility into the tandem topics of structure and function. All chapters include data from studies directed at the assessment of structure using two- or three-dimensional ultrasound and the assessment of function using the technology of the emerging field of functional genomics. The introductory chapters cover embryology and anatomy of the female reproductive tract, evidence-based medicine in reproductive medicine and diagnostic studies that include imaging studies and the emerging field of microarray analysis and the insight gained from this technology. Each clinical chapter describes specific anatomic abnormalities and an approach emphasizing contemporary diagnostics and therapeutics. Every chapter begins with a historical perspective followed by discussions of state-of-the-art diagnostic studies, etiology, surgical management and guidelines for arriving at an outcomes driven decision regarding the intersection of surgery and ART. The discussion is supported by over 300 images and drawings illustrating each abnormality and surgical procedure. All recommendations are data and outcomes based. This approach minimizes anecdotal data, intuition or clinical hearsay. The text emphasizes an evidence-based approach and presents outcomes to support suggested plans of management. The most clinically and cost effective technology is matched to the clinical setting. Bottom line recommendations are written in a clear and concise bullet presentation at the conclusion of each chapter to help you meet the challenge of clinical infertility practice.

Reproductive medicine has been very successful at developing new therapies in recent years and people having difficulties conceiving have more options available to them than ever before. These developments have led to a new institutional landscape emerging and this innovative volume explores how health and social structures are being developed and reconfigured to take into account the increased use of assisted reproductive technologies, such as IVF treatments. Using Sweden as a central case study, it explores how the process of institutionalizing new assisted reproductive technologies includes regulatory agencies, ethical committees, political bodies and discourses, scientific communities, patient and activists groups, and entrepreneurial activities in the existing clinics and new entrants to the industry. It draws on new theoretical developments in institutional theory and outlines how health innovations are always embedded in social relations including ethical, political, and financial concerns. This book will be of interest to advanced students and academics in health management, science and technology studies, the sociology of health and illness and organisational theory.
