  1. 1. Pre-, peri- and postnatal influences on ophthalmologic outcome - a study on children born after intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and children born preterm

    Author : Margareta Hök Wikstrand; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : visual function; intracytoplasmic sperm injection; preterm birth; growth; insulin-like growth factor 1; postnatal development; ocular fundus morphology;

    Abstract : The aims of the present study were to investigate the effects of prenatal factors in children born after intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and peri- and postnatal factors in children born preterm on visual function and ocular fundus morphology at school age. In the children born preterm the ophthalmologic outcomes, including optic nerve morphology were analysed in relation to gestational age (GA), birth weight (BW) standard deviation score (SDS), serum levels of insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I), weight at week 32 (SDS), and weight, length and head circumference (SDS) at school age.

  2. 2. Strategies for infertility treatment in men with azoospermia

    Author : Göran Westlander; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Azoospermia; delivery outcome; Doppler flow imaging; intracytoplasmic sperm injection; Klinefelter s syndrome; sperm retrieval; ultrasonography;

    Abstract : Introduction: Historically, treatment of severe male infertility has been restricted. With the introduction of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), infertile men have been given new hope of achieving genetic fatherhood. READ MORE

    Abstract : Treatment success in IVF-ICSI is mainly limited by female age, but differences in ovarian reserve (OR; the remaining pool of oocytes and their quality) between individuals modify treatment prerequisites among women of similar age. OR may be assessed by OR tests (ORTs). READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies on genetic aberrations as possible predictors of the outcome of assisted reproduction

    Author : Mona Bungum; Malmö Reproduktionsmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; assisted reproduction; IUI; Sperm chromatin; ICSI; intra-individual variation; fertilisation failure genetic aberration; Protein C inhibitor gene; sperm DNA damage SCSA; IVF;

    Abstract : Traditionally, diagnosis of male infertility has relied upon microscopic assessment of semen. The normality criteria set by the World Health Organization (WHO) in regard to sperm concentration, motility and morphology are, however, poor predictors of fertility. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cancer and male reproductive function- the effect on sperm DNA integrity and on birth outcomes in the offspring

    Author : Olof Ståhl; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; SCSA; birth outcomes; sperm DNA integrity; male cancer; fertility;

    Abstract : Male cancer survivors (MCS) are at risk of suffering from impaired fertility. Male fertility is dependant on sperm DNA quality. The Sperm Chromatin Structure Assay (SCSA) reflects the proportion of sperm with poor DNA, the DNA fragmentation index, DFI. READ MORE
