Abstract

Forty‐six couples with various causes of infertility were treated by tubal embryo transfer. Oocyte retrievals were carried out under ultrasound guidance transvaginally and embryos were transferred 48 hours later by laparoscopy into fallopian tubes. Totally 52 cycles were stimulated and 45 retrievals were performed with an average of 8.1 oocytes per retrieval. The average fertilization rate was 54.8%. The implantation rate was 23.8% and the pregnancy rate was 53.5% per transfer. The pregnancy rate per transfer was comparable whether 3 or 4 embryos were transferred. Nine (39.1%) of the 23 pregnancies had multiple pregnancies. Six cases (26.1%) aborted in the first trimester and the remaining 17 were ongoing or term delivery.
