Interventional embolization plays a role in hydrosalpinx resulting from fertilization and embryo transfer in vitro

Objective: This research was aimed to explore the role of interventional embolization in hydrosalpin resulting from In Vitro Fertilization and Embryo Transfer (IVF-ET).

Methods: From 2013 to 2016, 130 patients were treated with IVF-ET in which 75 were treated with fallopian tube embolization followed by IVF-ET while others received IVF-ET without other treatments. Age, basal Estradiol (E2) value, basal Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) value, Gn dosage, antral follicle count, follicle count on the day of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) administration, E2 value on the day of HCG administration, fertility rate, cleavage rate, clinical pregnancy rate, rate of abortion and ectopic pregnancy rate were tested.

Results: Pregnancy rate of the intervention group was significantly higher than that of the control group (P<0.05), while abortion and ectopic pregnancy rate of the intervention group was strikingly lower than that of the control group (P<0.05).

Conclusion: Interventional embolization plays a role in hydrosalpinx resulting from fertilization and embryo transfer in vitro.
