Reproductologists of the Department of In Vitro Fertilization Ksenia Khazhilenko and Natalia Redko attended the master class “POSEIDON criteria: from poor ovarian response to the concept of low prognosis”. The master class took place on October 13-14 in Athens (Greece).
The workshop held in Athens was dedicated to working with an extremely complex group of patients participating in ART (assisted reproductive technologies) programs who received a poor reproductive prognosis due to age or genetic characteristics of the ovaries. Unfortunately, there are a lot of such patients not only in groups with problems with fertilization, but also among patients who have unsuccessful results of specialized treatment. Therefore, the powerful efforts of the world’s best reproductologists are aimed at not only predicting with the most probable accuracy the possibility of an unfavorable development of events, but also increasing the chances of a healthy baby being born.
For two days, the best reproductologists of the world (P. Humaidan, A. La Marca, S. Esteves, L. Alviggi, A. Capella) considered the problem from all sides in a live dialogue with the participants of the master class. Answering the questions of those present, the real gurus of modern reproductology, together with all the participants of the master class, were looking for possible ways to solve the problem of low ovarian response to stimulation in in vitro fertilization programs and, accordingly, a low chance of pregnancy and childbirth in such programs.
«In most cases, such events are an immersion into a separate problem of reproductology, which is thoroughly understood from the positions of various specialists participating in the workshop (embryology, obstetrics and gynecology, genetics). The main interest is that almost half of the working time is devoted to discussions, so any participant is given a unique opportunity to ask their questions to the masters. Such communication is invaluable, because it not only has answers to questions, it also allows you to feel that you are talking to leading foreign colleagues in the same language – both literally and in the sense of the professional language of modern reproduction», – Ksenia Khazhilenko, obstetrician-gynecologist, geneticist, ultrasound diagnostics doctor, shares her impressions about the master class.
