Second World Congress on Embryo Transfer & Intrauterine Insemination


Zimt Conference

29 July 2016

| | | |

After a six year hiatus, the Scientific Committee at IVF Lite Foundation have designed a very busy & contemporary academic program on the subject: The Second World Congress on Embryo Transfer & Intrauterine Insemination. This has been done in conjunction with the Italian society of Sterility & Fertility (SIFES), Turkish Society for Reproductive Medicine (TSRM), Society of Cross Border Reproductive Care (SCBRC) & the World Association of Reproductive Medicine (WARM).

Second World Congress on Embryo Transfer & Intrauterine Insemination
December 8-11, 2016, Heritance Ahungalla, South Sri Lanka
Endorsed by IVF Lite Foundation, India and Organized by
Zimt Conferences & Seminars Organizing Company, Dubai, UAE  

A dedicated Hall for topics pertaining to IUI on all the meeting days aims to make an update on the topic of “Intrauterine Insemination”, bringing together many world experts in this field of Assisted Reproduction. The scientific deliberations will cover all aspects related to IUI: Waiting Time after Intrauterine Inseminations: What Do We Know?, Sperm preparation protocols for IUI, Is IVF-ET better than IUI as an initial therapy for unexplained infertility?, IUI vs diagnostic laparoscopy in patients with unexplained infertility, Luteal phase support following IUI cycles, IVF or IUI should be the first line treatment for unexplained infertility?, Effect of Intrauterine Insemination Methodology on Success Rates, Clomiphene Citrate versus Letrozole in IUI, Can Gynecologists do bench-top IUI preparations without a CO2 incubator? and The dos and don'ts of the IUI Laboratory.

The main Meeting at the Heritance Ahungalla, South Sri Lanka, will have two halls running simultaneously; in one all aspects of Intrauterine Insemination will be discussed threadbare & in the other hall, the focus will be exclusively on Embryo Transfer & its role in Assisted Conception. The main objective of this Meeting is to give an updated overview on all aspects of Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) & Embryo Transfer (ET). Emphasis will be given on interactive discussions between participants and experts on practical issues of the subjects under discussion. The target audience of this meeting is the Clinicians, Laboratory people, Nurses, Coordinators & other related persons working in the field of Assisted Reproduction & Intrauterine Insemination.

Reproductive health professionals receive training in various aspects of assisted reproductive technology and other procedures comprising infertility treatment. There is, however, a widespread gap in training in Embryo Transfer. The objective of this Meeting for ART professionals who perform the Embryo Transfer procedure is to learn the common best practices in Embryo Transfer

This program brings together an internationally renowned faculty to present the latest developments in every phase of In Vitro Fertilization and Embryo Transfer. The course addresses the needs of practicing Scientists, Gynecologists, Reproductive Endocrinologists, Residents, and Fellows who wish to review the specialty and update their knowledge in this rapidly changing and expanding field. The Conference setting promotes extensive contact among speakers and participants with question periods, panels, and many opportunities for informal interaction.

Particular attention will be devoted this year to the rapidly expanding trend toward deferred Embryo Transfer, new testing for Endometrial Receptivity, Oocyte and Embryo Cryopreservation, Time Lapse Imaging of early embryo development, the critical role of embryo energy supplies, Mitochondrial DNA as a biomarker for embryo competence, the role of CoQ10 in improving Mitochondrial function in ageing women, practical aspects of ultrasound-guided transfer technique, and next generation techniques for PGS.

A Cryotech Japan Pre-Congress Workshop on IUI by Goral Gandhi & Esther Velila will elaborate on the relevance of IUI in contemporary ART practice.

Scientific Program Highlights:
AMH and AFC for predicton of IUI success - Can Gynecologists do bench-top IUI preparations without a CO2 incubator? - Methodological aspects & newer sperm preparation techniques - The dos and don'ts of the IUI Laboratory - IVF or IUI should be the first line treatment for unexplained infertility? - Factors influencing success rates - What's the best treatment for cancer patients who freeze their sperm? - IVF cycle segmentation: are we ready for all patients? - Optimising IVF outcome by monitoring serum progesterone levels during ovarian stimulation - Waiting Time after Intrauterine Inseminations: What Do We Know? - Endometrial thickness and IUI & ET success - The loading process of ET catheters : It matters! - Embryo Selection Secrets - The influence of the depth of embryo replacement - What is the optimal method of endometrial preparation for frozen embryo transfers? - Does use of a stylette reduce implantation rates? - Why less is more and more is less in IVF/ET? -Time Lapse Imaging in IVF : An Update -New friendly protocols for poor responders: from Corifollitropin alfa to long antagonist protocols - 100% Survival Oocyte Vitrification: Tips & Tricks

LEARNING OBJECTIVES at The World Congress on Embryo Transfer & Intrauterine Insemination::

Upon attending this meeting, the participant will be able to:
1.     Know the correct techniques of sperm preparation for IUI
2.     Learn the GMP based indications for IUI.
3.     Delineate the correct techniques of IUI.
4.     Master the correct ovarian stimulation protocols for IUI versus IVF.
5.     ART professionals who perform the embryo transfer procedure will learn the common best practices in embryo transfer
6.     Learners will know how to overcome difficult ETs and learn how to develop motor and cognitive skills for performing “ideal” embryo transfers.
7.     Physicians will learn the finer nuances of ultrasound-guided ETs and the correct indications for use of different ET catheters.
8.     The goal is for practitioners to improve their embryo transfer technique.
9.     At the conclusion of this meeting, participants should be able to describe the correct steps in the Embryo Transfer & Intrauterine Insemination procedure in humans and discuss best practices in IUI & ET in humans.
10.     Describe standard, successful methods of each aspect of the clinical practice of Assisted Reproductive Technology and in particular the very significant advantages of deferred Embryo Transfer, made possible through Vitrification.
11.     At the completion of the course the participants should be able to outline alternatives to full stimulation; know about advances in prevention of OHSS; delineate the role of lifestyle issues in the male and female; know about time-lapse monitoring; ageing of the follicle and oocyte; ovarian tissue and oocyte cryopreservation; newer techniques for Comprehensive Chromosome Screening; optimal hormone replacement for embryo transfer; and critical aspects of Embryo Transfer Technique.
12.     Discuss aspects of Embryo culture and Embryo management to achieve optimal results with IVF.
13.     Identify novel methods for sperm selection, non-invasive methods for Embryo selection, and options for fertility preservation for the woman with Cancer.

The target audience for this initiative includes Physicians, Fellows, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Embryologists and other allied Health Professionals in the field of IVF.
