In the final lecture of CHR’s annual research update for 2013, Dr. Norbert Gleicher tackles one of the most heatedly discussed issues in reproductive endocrinology and infertility: whether a twin pregnancy represents a positive or negative outcome of infertility treatment. CHR investigators have had a very visible presence in this still ongoing dispute, mostly representing the opposing opinion to what currently is widely considered “politically correct.” In his presentation, Dr. Gleicher shares insights, drawing from data that have become available in the literature in recent months, on outcome comparisons of twin pregnancy vs. singleton pregnancy, arguing against a policy of mandatory single embryo transfers (SETs) for all women.
