Hum Reprod 2022 May 13. Epub 2022 May 13.

Department of Biomedical Sciences, Humanitas University, Pieve Emanuele-Milan, Italy.

Study Question: Is there an association between the different endometrial preparation protocols for frozen embryo transfer (FET) and obstetric and perinatal outcomes?

Summary Answer: Programmed FET protocols were associated with a significantly higher risk of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP), pre-eclampsia (PE), post-partum hemorrhage (PPH) and cesarean section (CS) when compared with natural FET protocols.

What Is Known Already: An important and growing source of concern regarding the use of FET on a wide spectrum of women, is represented by its association with obstetric and perinatal complications. However, reasons behind these increased risks are still unknown and understudied. Read More

Effects of aldosterone on the human placenta: Insights from placental perfusion studies.

Placenta 2022 May 2;123:32-40. Epub 2022 May 2.

Institute of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine, University of Bern, Switzerland; Swiss National Center of Competence in Research, NCCR TransCure, University of Bern, Switzerland. Electronic address:

Introduction: In pregnancy, aldosterone is linked to maternal plasma volume expansion, improved fetal and placental growth/angiogenesis and reduced maternal blood pressure. Aldosterone levels are low in women with pre-eclampsia. Given the placental growth properties of aldosterone in pregnancy, we hypothesised that increased aldosterone improves placental function ex vivo. Read More
