Retrospective comparison of two media for invitro maturation of oocytes [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
In-vitro maturation of oocytes (IVM) is a new IVF technology developed in order to avoid iatrogenic complications of standard IVF treatments. This technique is particularly useful in patients suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) who are concerned with the risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. This technique is nowadays routinely practised in many international centres. However, the efficiency of this technique needs to be improved for a better support of maturation conditions to maximize oocyte developmental competence. In order to improve IVM results, the efficiency of two IVM media was retrospectively compared. Ninety-three PCOS candidates undergoing their first IVM cycle were included in this study, and IVM was conducted with TCM-199 or IVM-Medicult medium. This is the first study comparing two maturation media. Both media resulted in the same results concerning total oocyte maturation, fertilization, early embryo development and pregnancy rates.
