Instituto Bernabeu studies use of a new drug in order to reduce contractions before embryo transfer in patients with elevated uterine contractility

  • 02/06/19

Instituto Bernabeu research has looked into reducing uterine hypercontractility prior to embryo transfer and if administering Atosiban helps patients with this issue.  The results of the research work entitled ‘Treatment of uterine hypercontractility with Atosiban during embryo transfer’ were presented at the 1st National Congress of the Spanish Infertility and Sterility Society (SEISEGO).

Instituto Bernabeu researchers describe progress in diagnosis of a rare complication: uterine incarceration

  • 01/30/19

Instituto Bernabeu researchers have presented experience of a clinical case that describes uterine incarceration, a very infrequent complication during pregnancy. They gave their presentation at the 1st National Congress of the Spanish Society of Gynaecology and Obstetrics (SEISEGO) that was held within the framework of the Spanish Society of Gynaecology and Obstetrics Congress (SEGO). Uterine incarceration occurs during pregnancy when the uterus becomes wedged into the pelvis. There are very few available described cases of this complex and serious condition that is difficult to diagnosis. As such, this study is a very valuable contribution towards improving our understanding of it and advising medical staff about when the symptoms arise.

Research by Instituto Bernabeu investigates if the choice of day for sperm retrieval has an impact on pregnancy results

  • 01/15/19

Azoospermia is one of the causes of male sterility. In order to be able to retrieve spermatozoa in men with this condition, the man has to undergo techniques involving sperm aspiration from the epididymis or testicles, or a testicular biopsy. Although these techniques can be performed at any time and the samples can be cryopreserved for use in the future, with our patients we generally aim to synchronise the procedure with oocyte retrieval. When we do so, the procedure can be performed the day before or the same day as the ovarian puncture that is used to retrieve oocytes from the female partner. Researchers at Instituto Bernabeu carried out a study to find out which of the two days chosen for testicular spermatozoa retrieval gave the best clinical results.  The research work was presented to the 1st National Congress of the Spanish Society of Gynaecology and Obstetrics (SEISEGO) that was held within the framework of the Spanish Society of Gynaecology and Obstetrics Congress (SEGO).

Instituto Bernabeu carries out research to determine if the number of twin pregnancies increases following embryo biopsy

  • 01/09/19

A team of gynaecologists, embryologists, molecular biologists and biologists at Instituto Bernabeu has carried out research to determine if there is an increased number of monozygotic twin pregnancies following transfer when an embryo biopsy during the blastocyst stage (day 5 or 6 of development) has been performed. The twins come from a single ovum or single spermatozoon and they have the same genetic make-up. Pregnancies of this kind are also linked to various perinatal complications.

Instituto Bernabeu studies the impact on pregnancy rates of random-start ovarian stimulation performed on oocyte donors

  • 01/03/19

Instituto Bernabeu has presented research work analysing the clinical results obtained in an oocyte donor programme following random-start ovarian stimulation in comparison with conventional ovarian stimulation to the Sterility and Infertility Section of the Spanish Society of Gynaecology and Obstetrics (SEISEGO). Researchers at the reproductive medicine clinic discovered that there are no significant differences between the results and they highlight that this is an advantage for commencing treatment and synchronising the donor and recipient.

Research carried out by Instituto Bernabeu addresses different types of ovarian stimulation for IVF and their impact on chromosomal abnormalities in the embryo

  • 12/26/18

Embryo aneuploidies are one of the main causes of failure during in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment. Most of the errors that lead to embryos with chromosomal abnormalities have a maternal origin and numerous studies suggest that the mother’s age is a decisive factor. Instituto Bernabeu research work that was presented at the 1st National Congress of the Spanish Infertility and Sterility Society (SEISEGO) has gone a step further. It questions if ovarian stimulation can have an impact on embryo chromosomal abnormalities.
