Severe OHSS Regression

Flow chart describing the management approach for patients at high risk for developing OHSS. 10 patients did not develop severe OHSS and had embryo transfer cancellation due to the following reasons: failed fertilization n = 1, oocyte cryopreservation n = 2, no blastocyst formation n = 2, embryo cryopreservation due to Rokitansky syndrome n = 1, due to poor endometrium n = 1, absence of sperm on day of oocyte retrieval and use of donor sperm n = 3. Four patients with positive hCG following ET developed pregnancy-induced late OHSS and were admitted to the hospital (1.1%, 95% CI: 0.5 to 3.3).

Example of Primary and Secondary Prevention strategies used to reduce severity of OHSS. Administration of GnRH antagonists, cryopreservation of embryos and cycle cancellation were all employed to prevent Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome progression within patients.
