621. Fungal growth in Incubator

05 December 2004 by Charudutt Joshi
We are having two incubators Binder/ Hareous. One year back we use to get frequent fungal contamination which along with time reduced. At this time we have used Sodium dodysyl sulphate (Lawrel sulphate) a pinch to the water pan. We have started getting same type of contamination again. We change pan water every week still it appears. Can any one suggest what to do in such situation.

623. Low dose hCG

05 December 2004 by Mark Perloe
Previously our stimulation protocols included a mix of FSH and HMG. Recently we replaced HMG with low dose hCG calculating the dose as LH=1/2 FSH and 1 IU hCG = 12 IU LH, so the dose was calculated as 1/12 FSH units. We either started at initiation of FSH or when follicles are 13mm in size. OHSS risk was greatly increased with early hCG administration. Has anyone had similar experiences?

624. Depleted uranium

05 November 2004 by Tiziana Marsella
We have a patient who was in contact with depleted uranium during the past kosovo war. His semen parameters now are normal, but some specialists found some heavy particles both in his semen plasma and both attached around the sperm head. After gradient separation the spermatozoa resulted "heavy particles"-free. Furthermore a fish test performed on spermatozoa revealed no abnormality. My question is: it's correct to suggest to this patient to conceive naturally or it would be better to suggest an IVF cycle? And extremely, it would be recommended to not conceive at all? thank everybody for your cooperation
