Course description

Implantation and pregnancy are complex events that require coordinated crosstalk between the embryo and the maternal endometrium, When this crosstalk is disturbed, implantation failure and pregnancy loss occur. Whereas during the last decades we have witnessed important advances to assess embryo quality which allows improving pregnancy rates during ART, the contribution of material endometrium to (recurrent) implantation failure and pregnancy loss is still elusive. Nevertheless, recent pre- and clinical research are shedding some light on the complex functioning of the human endometrium.

 

Target audience

Scientists, clinicians and technical staff working in the field of ART, reproductive biology and endometrial biology.

 

Educational needs and expected outcomes

The contribution of the endometrium to implantation failure and pregnancy loss is still elusive.

  1. The pathophysiology leading to implantation failure and pregnancy loss
  2. Endometrial immune milieu and its contribution to implantation failure and pregnancy loss
  3. Systemic conditions and their contribution to implantation failure and pregnancy loss
  4. Best clinical intervention in case of implantation failure and pregnancy loss

 

Innovative aspects

This Campus Course aims at giving a state-of-the-art view on the role of the endometrium in implantation and pregnancy establishment, the role of the immune milieu, endometrial disorders and other systemic conditions to implantation failure and pregnancy loss. The Campus Course will describe the current clinical management of women/couples with these conditions.
