Contemporary aspects of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome prevention
Kharkiv National Medical University, Kharkiv, Ukraine
Abstract. The review on ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) prevention is presented. OHSS is an iatrogenic complication related exclusively to ovarian stimulation when assisted reproductive technologies are applied. The number of measures has been introduced by now to identify high risk patients and to prevent OHSS development. The most sophisticated strategies are highly demanding to the personnel qualifications, as well as to the equipment of ART clinics. The proposed strategy of total oocytes/embryos cryopreservation is the only available now that guarantees the prevention of both primary and secondary OHSS development. Any other kind of strategy may decrease the risk of primary OHSS occurrence, however, significantly less imply on secondary OHSS development once the pregnancy achieved in ART cycles
Key words: ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, additional reproductive technologies, cryopreservation of oocytes/embryos, prevention.
