assumed etiologies for repeated art failures
Assumed Etiologies for Repeated ART Failures
  • Defective embryonic development
    • Genetic abnormalities (male/female/gametes/embryos)
    • Zona hardening
    • Suboptimal culture conditions
  • Decreased endometrial receptivity
    • Uterine cavity abnormalities
    • Thin endometrium
    • Altered expression of adhesive molecules
    • Immunological factors
    • Thrombophilias
  • Multifactorial effectors
    • Endometriosis
    • Hydrosalpinges
    • Suboptimal ovarian stimulation
embryo quality
Embryo quality
  • Very important
  • Can the quality of an embryo improved?
  • Presently we try to increase chances by transferring the best embryos (i.e., morphology, PGD)
  • Embryo quality is affected by:
    • Maternal age
    • Very poor semen
    • Endometriosis
    • PCOS (insulin resistance)
    • Hyperstimulation?

the role of genetics in repeated implantation failure
The Role of Genetics in Repeated Implantation Failure
  • Embryonic chromosomal anomalies
    • Most common etiology of age-related pregnancy failure
  • Euploidic but with lethal gene mutations
    • Difficult to diagnose but probably common in “idiopathic” recurrent implantation failures
  • Parental genetic structural abnormalities
    • Balanced translocations, female:male ratio 3:1; but overall rare (3%)
suggested treatments for repeated art failures
Suggested Treatments for Repeated ART Failures
  • Treatment of the embryos
    • Preimplantation genetic screening
    • Assisted hatching
    • Co-culture
    • Blastocyst transfer
    • Improving ET technique
  • Improving endometrial receptivity
    • Hysteroscopic correction of cavity pathology
    • Myomectomy
    • Treatment of thin endometrium
    • Endometrial stimulation (biopsy)
    • Immunotherapy (IVIg, steroids, aspirin and heparin)
  • Multifactorial treatment options
    • Treating endometriosis
    • Salpingectomy in case of hydrosalpinges
    • Tailoring the stimulation protocols
    • Psychological assistance

which patients with recurrent implantation failure may benefit from pgd for aneuploidy screening
Which patients with recurrent implantation failure may benefit from PGD for aneuploidy screening?

Patients with recurrent IVF failure are defined as younger than 37 years and who have had at least 3 consecutive unsuccessful IVF/ICSI cycles with good-quality embryos.

  • To have a 90% probability of having an embryo transfer after PGD-AS, the patient should have at least 10 mature oocytes, 8 fertilized oocytes and 6 embryos for biopsy.
  • This study suggests that some patients with recurrent IVF failure may benefit from PGD-AS (but no controls).

In a systematic review of adjuvant GH treatment on IVF outcomes, in women without a history of poor response, there was no evidence to support the use of GH (Harper K, 2003).

There was, however, a small but significant improvement in pregnancy rates in poor responders, although cost is a limiting factor (Harper K, 2003).

Tesarik et al. evaluated adjuvant GH in women >40-year-old undergoing IVF. Women co-treated with GH had more pregnancy (26 vs 6%) and delivery rates (22 vs 4%).

Metformin treatment increased the number of oocytes in insulin-resistant women with PCOS,(Fedorcsák, 2003). This finding, however, was not supported in otherRCT’s

A 28-day course of metformin during the IVF cycle improved pregnancy outcome and reduced the risk of OHSS. Pregnancy rate per ET was 44.4% vs 19% and live birth rate per ET was 37.8% vs 14.3%(Tang, 2006).

Meta-analysis demonstrated that metformin use in ART does not improve pregnancy (OR=3.46; CI=0.98-12.2) or live birth rates (Costello, 2006).

adenomyosis
Adenomyosis
  • Until recently, there was no accurate preoperative diagnostic methods.
  • Therefore, the relationship of adenomyosis to infertility has not been possible to assess.
  • Recently, a clear relationship between adenomyosis and infertility was described in the baboon. (Barrier et al. Fertil Steril 2004)

Antiphospholipid Antibodies (APA)
  • There is evidence that women with APA syndrome do not have decreased conception but experience pregnancy loss after 10 weeks of gestation.

  • Retrospective cohort study of 491 patients with a history of adverse pregnancy outcomes:
    • Thrombophilia was protective of recurrent losses at <10 weeks with OR of 0.55 (95% CI: 0.33-0.92).
    • Thrombophilia was associated risk of recurrent losses >10 weeks with OR of 1.76 (1.05-2.94).

Roque et al., Thromb Haemost. 2004

Infertility & APA
  • There are no large, controlled studies that establish the antiphospholipid antibodies as a cause of infertility
  • The use of antiphospholipid antibody testing in the fertility practice can not be supported by current data
  • Presence of antiphospholipid antibodies does not adversely affect the IVF cycle outcome. No testing or treatment are indicated. ASRM Report-1999

conclusions
Conclusions
  • While there exists strong motivation to find answers to explain repeated implantation failure, this impulse should be resisted if it leads to the practice of medicine that is not evidence-based
  • The benefit of PGD has not been shown to improve the outcome in repeated implantation failure (except for >40 years old or for balanced translocation)
  • Re-evaluation and treatment of pelvic pathologies is crucial:
    • Myomas, adenomyosis, endometriosis, polyps, Asherman, hydrosalpinx
  • Less aggressive COH (natural cycle?) ART may be beneficial
  • Certain patient subpopulations may benefit from additional treatments, such as GH for poor responders or metformin for some PCOS patients or longer GnRH agonist for endometriosis.
  • Immune testing and unproven treatments in repeated implantation failure is not recommended
