This Journal Club Global will be streamed live, on location, at the Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Fellow's Retreat in Park City, Utah.
Erica Johnstone, M.D., M.H.S., Eric Widra, M.D., Kate O'Neill, M.D., Sara Morelli, M.D., Steve Young, M.D., Ph.D., Samantha Pfeifer, M.D., Emily Barnard, D.O., and Luis Hoyos, M.D., will discuss and debate the Fertile Battle in the June edition of Fertility and Sterility: "Should we stop offering endometrial scratching prior to in vitro fertilization?"
Questions and issues addressed include:
- What is the biologic plausibility that endometrial scratching could improve implantation?
- What is the evidence for and against endometrial scratching?
- What patient populations should endometrial scratching be offered to?
- What considerations of risk to benefit ratios, quality of evidence, and level of evidence should exist before interventions are implemented into widespread clinical practice?
