IFCE is not just about scratching the endometrium. At Oak Clinic, we comprehensively judge the presence or absence of polyps and the morphology of the uterus together with hysteroscopic findings, so that we can combine the benefits of scratching with optimal endometrial biopsy for diagnostic purposes and subsequently ET (embryo transfer) for each patient.
Hysteroscopy in patients with repeated implantation failure reveals a high proportion of polyps.
At Oak Clinic, we consider:
The two types have their own treatment, as follows:
We reported that embryo transfer results after each treatment improved and were comparable in the macropolyp, micropolyp, and polyp-free groups (Kitaya K, et al., Human Reproduction, in press, 2012; doi: 10.1093 ⁄. humrep ⁄ des 323). In other words, it is important to select a treatment policy according to the presence or absence of polyps and their type.
