New examination aimed at testing couples with recurrent implantation failure

Instituto Bernabeu focusses on providing personalised solutions, particularly in cases of patients with a difficult reproductive prognosis (low ovarian reserve and recurrent implantation failure (RIF)).
Carrying out a number of empirical tests and treatments has, on occasions, been put forward as an option in the case of patients suffering from recurrent implantation failure. The latter have proven to be of questionable efficacy and the former have proven to be of limited or no use.
One of the proposed strategies for patients with recurrent implantation failure (RIF) that is providing many of these cases with solutions, is IVF (in vitro fertilisation) with elective freezing and biopsies on all embryos so that the frozen embryos can later be transferred during a natural cycle. In other words, without any hormone treatment.
It is possible to recreate the conditions under which transfer takes place during treatment of this kind by carrying out a mock cycle and evaluating a series of parameters that can influence transfer success. […]

Endometritis: What is it? How can it be detected? How can it be cured?

 Endometritis is inflammation of the endometrium. That is, inflammation of the internal lining of the uterus cavity where embryo implantation takes place.
 Severe endometritis is an uncommon gynaecological emergency which is generally iatrogenic following placenta retention after birth or pregnancy loss. Patients in this situation have a number of symptoms which are typical of an infection. For example, fever, purulent discharge, general discomfort and so on.  If it is not treated, then the situation can lead to a generalised infection. […]

Implantation failure and repeated miscarriage. Treatment options

Successfully treating implantation failure and recurrent pregnancy loss is undoubtedly a challenge for doctors and for patients.

It is an area on which we continuously focus research at Instituto Bernabeu and, whilst we are far from finding a solution to all problems, the number of couples we are able to successfully treat is forever increasing.

An approach which does not take all 3 parties into account – the female, the male and the embryo – is incomplete. When evaluation only takes the couple into account, the reason behind the issue is only determined in under 20% of all cases. […]

Diagnostic hysteroscopy and endometrial scratching

We consider an evaluation of the uterine cavity and a check to ensure normal structure in the tissue that lines it (the endometrium) to be a standard part of any implantation failure study. In order to carry out such a study, the most appropriate diagnosis consists of a diagnostic hysteroscopy and an endometrial biopsy.
A hysteroscopy is an endoscopy of the uterus. In other words, direct inspection of the uterine cavity using an optical system. It’s a simple test and practically pain free in most cases. Therefore, it is generally carried out during an appointment with minimal patient preparation and no impact on her daily life. […]

IB implantation failure and repeated miscarriage unit

At Instituto Bernabeu, we have developed a specific programme with protocols designed to treat repeated miscarriages and unsuccessful assisted reproduction treatments through the multidisciplinary approach that allows us to diagnose and therefore overcome these problems.
