Carme Pons, a clinical embryologist at Dexeus Mujer and a member of the Embryology Interest Group of the Spanish Association for the Study of Reproductive Biology (ASEBIR), has led a multicentre study promoted by this interest group.
At Dexeus Mujer, two techniques are routinely applied to maintain haemostasis: temporary clipping of both uterine arteries at their origin and of the ovarian vessels at the pelvic infundibulum, and intramyometrial epinephrine injection before performing the hysterectomy.
The variables analyzed were: age, age of onset of menopause, smoking and grip strength, body mass index and adiposity assessed by bioelectrical impedance. Physical activity levels were assessed by means the International Physical Activity Questionnaire.
A total of 1,495 cryotransfer cycles with Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT) performed between August 2017 and December 2019 analysed. All patients were between 18 and 40 years old and had previously undergone an ovarian stimulation treatment.
