The fimbrio-ovarian relation and its role on ovum picking in unexplained infertility: the fimbrio-ovarian accessibility tests

To study the ovum pickup mechanism and the fimbrio-ovarian relation in fertile women and cases of unexplained infertility and to design a method for investigation and anticipation of the state of ovum pickup. Prospective clinical study. Department of Obstetrics and gynecology Kasr El Aini Hospital, Cairo University, Egypt. Fifty fertile and 25 cases of unexplained infertility. In all of cases the fimbrio-ovarian relation is studied by determining the length of the free ovarian border between the ovarian ligament and the fimbria ovarica that contains the corpus luteum (the ovulation border), the site of ovulation on that border and the length of the fimbria ovarica. It is also determined by a simple test "The fimbrio-ovarian accessibility test." The fimbriae are held by non-traumatizing grasper and their ability to reach and/or to cover the ovulation site are taken as a prove for successful ovum pickup. In addition, cases having suspected failed ovum picking are treated by controlled superovulation, also by drilling of the ovary at an accessible site to the fimbria ovarica and by freeing short fimbria ovarica with or without its advancement on the ovulation border. The ovulation site is found to be usually accessible to the fimb...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
