P-71: The Relevance of Echo Patterns for The Success of In Vitro Fertilization Evaluated in 280 Patients.


Background
The endometrial echopattern on the day of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) administration and its relationship to the outcome of pregnancy after assisted reproductive treatment (ART) cycles was analyzed, prospectively.
Materials and methods
This study conducted between 2013 to 2014. The endometrial pattern was evaluated prospectively on the day of administration of HCG in 280 ART cycles. Inclusion criteria included women in first IVF cycle with the age of ‹40 years, absence of uterine pathologies and absence of any history of uterine surgery. Sagittal thickness of endometrium should be 8-14mm and at least one of the embryo should be grade A. According to its echopattern classified into two groups: Triple line and echogen(non-triple line). Pregnancy rate (PR) was compared between 2 groups.
Results
Among 280 patients finally evaluated, the positive pregnancy was 63(54.8%) in triple line group and 52(45.2%) in echogen(non-triple) group . Their average age was 29.53 ± 4.14 years. According to Chi-square test (P value=0.008), there is significant difference between endometrial echo pattern and pregnancy outcome.
Conclusion
The present result shows the significant difference between endometrial patterns in terms of pregnancy rate. Analyzing PR with different endometrial patterns in each group revealed that triple line pattern gives higher PR in comparison with other group. As a result of the present study, we propose that the endometrial pattern could have a predictive value for ART outcome.
