Transmyometrial embryo transfer after difficult immediate mock transcervical transfer.


OBJECTIVE:To evaluate the place of ultrasound-directed transvaginal transmyometrial ET in a protocol using both the transcervical and transmyometrial routes in a step-wise fashion. DESIGN:A prospective descriptive clinical study. SETTING:A university-based assisted conception unit. PATIENTS:Thirteen patients who had difficult or impossible mock transcervical ET immediately before the real transfer. INTERVENTION:Ultrasound-directed transvaginal transmyometrial ET. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES:Pregnancy and clinical pregnancy. RESULTS:Four patients became pregnant, including three with clinical pregnancies. CONCLUSIONS:In cases in which transcervical ET isd difficult or impossible, transvaginal transmyometrial ET is a viable option. The use of mock transcervical ET immediately before the real transfer would identify patients needing transmyometrial ET.
