Clinical significance of transvaginal color Doppler ultrasonography of the ovarian artery as a predictor of ovarian response in controlled ovarian hyperstimulation for in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer.
Our results showed that the lower PI in the ovarian stromal artery during COH is associated with the higher the pregnancy rate and the smaller amount of gonadotropins used for effective COH. This study suggests that the color Doppler ultrasonographic index (PI) of the ovarian stromal artery during COH may be useful for predicting the success of IVF-ET in infertile patients.
