For the second time in its clinical trial, a Cleveland Clinic patient has given birth after receiving a transplanted uterus from a deceased donor. In this article, Ob/Gyns on the transplant team provide a closer look at the transplant procedure and fertility treatments provided to a patient with MRKH syndrome.
Time-lapse technology allows the continuous monitoring of embryonic development, aiding in embryonic selection. Microbiologist Nina Desai, PhD, explains the development of a predictive model for euploid blastocyst selection.
Sperm DNA fragmentation has been suggested to be a contributor to male infertility and lower pregnancy outcomes. However, the degree to which DNA fragmentation influences outcomes in IVF is still controversial. Integration of time-lapse microscopy (TLM) into IVF labs allows more in-depth analysis of embryo developmental kinetics than was previously possible with conventional microscopy.
New technology is revealing which sperm are the most robust, increasing the success rate that azoospermic men can father a child through in vitro fertilization.

Using time-lapse images, Cleveland Clinic scientists looked at how embryo cell division rhythms and characteristics might affect embryo chromosomal integrity, finding delayed blastulation led to greater aneuploidy.
