Abstract

This is a prospective study of 182 women 38 yrs or younger undergoing IVF-ET. Endometrial thickness, echo pattern and blood flow on transvaginal ultrasonography were recorded eight hours prior to hCG administration. The patients were divided into three groups: A n = 10 with undetectable endometrial blood flow; B n = 82 with sub-endometrial blood flow; C n = 90 with both endometrial and sub-endometrial blood flow. According to IVF-ET outcomes, all patients were re-divided into three groups: 1 non-pregnancy n = 92; 2 intrauterine pregnancy with live fetus n = 70; 3 others n = 20 including biochemical pregnancy, embryonic diapause, ectopic pregnancy and miscarriage. Intrauterine pregnancy with live fetus in Group C 62.2% was much higher than that in Group A and B 0% and 17.1%, p less than or equal to 0.001. The implantation rate 33.2% was much higher than that in Group A and B 0% and 19.90%, p less than or equal to 0.001. The pulsatility index, resistance index, and S-D of endometrial spiral arteries were 0.1 +- 0.2, 0.6 +- 0.1 and 2.5 +- 0.4 in Group 2, which were much lower than those in Group 1 and Group 3 p1-2 less than 0.001, p2-3 less than 0.05. The patients with detectable endometrial blood flow had higher clinical pregnancy rates and implantation rates.
