Increasing the implantation rate of the endometrial wall (Injury technique)

Uterus is a very important factor in IVF treatment. In order to have a healthy settling down of the embryo, pregnancy capacity of the uterus has to be good. Especially in recurrent IVF failures, evaluation of the endometrial cavity is very important. Ultrasonography is not sufficient on its own to evaluate the endometrial cavity. Hysterosalpingography is used especially for the evaluation of the Fallopian tubes and can give false results when used for the evaluation of the endometrial cavity. In addition, it can be troublesome and painful at times.
Hysteroscopy is the gold standard to evaluate the endometrial cavity. With the latest update to this technique, office hysteroscopy, hysteroscopy can be performed in a simple office or examination room, without any anesthesia, in a very short time and any uterine problems can be diagnosed and treated at the same session. For example, structural problems such as adhesion regions at the endometrial cavity, polypoid formations, uterine septum, and pathological problems such as endometrial hyperplasia, endometritis can be treated and pregnancy rate can be increased. We, as Gürgan Clinic, have done many scientific studies on office hysteroscopy and recurrent miscarriages and published our findings in scientific journals. We therefore offer this approach to our patients with great confidence.
The latest technology is to induce the uterine cells in order to enhance the acceptance of the embryo by the endometrial cavity. Endometrial cavity is examined by office hysteroscopy and small incisions (microtrauma/injury) are made at all surfaces with a special microdevice. This increases the vitality and holding potential of the endometrial cells. We, as Gürgan Clinic, are continuing this study in collaboration with Sheffield University, UK, and published our positive results in high impact scientific journals. This technique brings a new modality to increase the success rate of IVF treatment and have created a significant hope for the cases with recurrent failure.
