Infertility/ART/IVF

Session THE BEST RBMO PUBLICATIONS IN 2016-2017: THE EDITOR’S PICK
Session UTERUS TRANSPLANTATION
Capsule Odyssey through the exciting development of recent years
Surgical techniques of live donor uterus transplantation
Results of surgery and the first post-transplantation year
Obstetric pitfalls and results
Bioengineered uterus: The future?
Session ARTIFICIAL GAMETES
Capsule  After many years of research, have we gotten any closer to having artificial gametes?
Artificial ovary
Creation of germ cells is the solution for fertility preservation
Artificial gamete: Ready for clinical use?
Session UNDERSTANDING INDIVIDUALIZED TREATMENTS
Capsule EBM provided a big leap forward in the understanding and treatment of disease. Is something missing in the translation of the data for individuals?
Debate: Is EBM equipped to meet the challenges for developing personalized medicine?
What hampers individualized approaches in IVF?
Personalized medicine is the way to the future
Session IT’S ALL IN THE CHROMOSOMES
Human germline gene editing: Are we ready?
The mismeasurement of mosaicism in human embryos
Debate:
Proposition: Aneuploidy embryos should never be transferred
Opposition: Aneuploidy embryos can be transferred
Oocytes quality deterioration with age has little to do with chromosomes
Session IMPLANTATION FAILURE
Capsule Implantation failure is multi-factorial and common. Do we have new understandings and solutions?
Endometrial cellular senescence and implantation failure
Endometrial receptivity: How to assess it and is it key to embryo wastage?
Diagnosis and treatment of endometrial receptivity
Session ASSISTED REPRODUCTION: FUTURE PERSPECTIVES
Debate: Individualized stimulation: The way to go or an unnecessary effort?
The “freeze all” concept in assisted reproduction: An option for everybody?
Session TIME LAPSE
Capsule  Time lapse seems like the right tool to close the gaps between the limited examination performed in the IVF laboratory and the dynamic nature of embryonic growth. Continuous monitoring offers information on positive and negative events. Time lapse also offers a list of secondary advantages, but does it allow for automatic embryo selection?
Time lapse to optimize embryo culture: First step towards automation in IVF
Debate: Time lapse: What have we learned so far? Do universal algorithms work?
Embryo development on day 3-4: What can we learn?
Session PGS/PGD
Capsule While the technique seems to be improving, the question now is can universal PGS improve the results of ART or worsen them?
Debate: PGS
All embryos should be tested
No embryos should be tested
Debate: Detection of mosaicism in trophectoderm biopsies
PGS on culture media
Session ROLE OF MITOCHONDRIA IN IVF SUCCESS
Mitochondrial diseases: Technical issues and future therapy
Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) can serve as a biomarker of pre-implantation embryo viability
Mitochondria as a biomarker for implantation
Boosting mitochondrial function in oocytes increases success: No proof has yet been provided
Session Q & A
Capsule Panelist-audience discussion on acute clinical issues
Time-lapse
POR: Individualization of treatment, how?
PCOS: Individualization of treatment, how?
Androgens, estrogens and OCs before stimulation: Do they make a difference?
What to do with repeated bad quality embryos?
What to do with RIF?
Embryo transfer with or without US?
Evidence-based luteal support:  What, when, and for how long?
Mosaicism: What is the incidence? Why do some PGS labs report mosaicism and others not?
Should mosaic embryos be transferred? What are the risks to the newborn and the practitioners responsible for their transfer?
Session TREATMENT OF FIBROIDS
