The treatment of normospermic infertility by gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT)



The treatment of normospermic infertility by gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT)



British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology 95(4): 361-366



Gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT) was applied in 207 treatment cycles in 73 couples. The pregnancy rate in cycles with only one (2/21, 9.5%) or two (2/29, 6.9%) oocytes transferred was significantly less than that in which four oocytes (36/116, 31.0%) were replaced. The collection of more than four oocytes did not influence the pregnancy rate in that treatment cycle. The overall pregnancy rate was 24.2% (50 of 207) and was similar in the four infertility groups studied (non-occlusive tubal disorders, endometriosis, cervical factor and unexplained infertility) with 28 (56%) of the pregnancies delivered at greater than or equal to 20 weeks. The pregnancy wastage included 4 (8%) ectopic pregnancies and 3 (6%) late pregnancy losses. The 12 multiple pregnancies occurred following the transfer of three and four oocytes.
