Abstract

Objective:

To analyze whether the use of blastocyst intrafallopian transfer is a feasible option in a case of repeated difficult ET.

Design:

Case report.

Setting:

Public hospital.

Patient(s):

Forty-year-old nulliparous patient.

Intervention(s):

Transfer of two vitrified/warmed blastocysts into the right tube by means of laparoscopy.

Main Outcome Measure(s):

Successful ET, clinical pregnancy.

Result(s):

Successful ET procedure resulting in positive ß-hCG and clinical pregnancy.

Conclusion(s):

In cases of repeated difficult ETs (regardless of whether the patient shows cervical adhesions or any type of genital malformations), blastocyst intrafallopian transfer can be a successful alternative approach.
