    Author : Ann Thurin-Kjellberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : In vitro fertilization; elective single embryo transfer; multiple pregnancies; randomized; controlled trial; prediction of IVF outcome; embryo selection; cost-effectiveness analysis;
