  • Covers important topics like  possible causes of failure at the embryo transfer stage, uterine evaluation, mock embryo transfer (ET), experience of the physician, and the use of ultrasound-guidance to monitor ET
  • Highlights problems associated with ET procedure and provides valid, scientific solutions
  • Explains the obvious simplicity of  ET and how clinicians can improve their success rates in ART ​
​This concise work on embryo transfer is yet another contribution to the persevering effort to disseminate latest information on the science and skill of performing an atraumatic and successful embryo transfer, the most critical culmination of the assisted reproductive technology (ART) stimulation cycle, and a rate-limiting step in dictating the success of treatment.  The well-worded chapters draw the reader’s attention to significant aspects, such as possible causes of failure at the embryo transfer stage, uterine evaluation, mock embryo transfer (ET), experience of the physician, and the use of ultrasound-guidance to monitor ET, that should be taken into account prior to initiating the actual embryo transfer. The protocol for difficult transfers, variables that affect the success of ET, and the influence of the catheter used for ET have been dealt with, while striking a balance between the myths and reality that surround ET. What makes this book unique is its pragmatic approach that can translate into solutions to the numerous frustrating ART failures that more often than not, and ignorantly so, may be attributed to an inefficient ET procedure. It helps the reader understand the integrity of embryo transfer, unravel its obvious simplicity and bridge the success between the several steps of ART. By highlighting the impeding problems associated with ET procedure and providing valid, scientific solutions, this stimulating edition will help the readers improve the ART success rates in their clinical practice.
