J Minim Invasive Gynecol 2019 Feb 19. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

From the Center for Reproductive Medicine and Implantation Research, Sugiyama Clinic Shinjuku, (Drs. Kuroda, Nakagawa, and Sugiyama) Tokyo, Japan.

Study Objective: To analyze the clinical outcomes and predictive factors for the therapeutic effect of combination treatment of preoperative embryo cryopreservation and endoscopic surgery ('surgery-assisted reproductive technology [ART] hybrid therapy') in infertile women with diminished ovarian reserve (DOR) with uterine fibroids and/or ovarian endometriomas.

Design: A retrospective cohort study (Canadian Task Force Classification II-2) SETTING: Data from all patients who underwent surgery-ART hybrid therapy at Juntendo University Hospital and Sugiyama Clinic from 2014 to 2016 were analyzed retrospectively. We compared women who experienced livebirth (success group) and implantation failure or miscarriage (failure group) after surgery-ART hybrid therapy and evaluate the predictive factors for livebirth.
