Description

The aim of this session is to understand the route causes of a thin endometrial stripe and recognizing that patients fall into those with uterine damage and scarring and those patients who have an inherent thin lining.  These two patient populations are very different and have different prognoses.  The session will then look at outcomes for patients with a thin endometrial stripe and their outcomes with IVF and then follow with a discussion about potential interventions and the evidence around these.  Finally, a few comments and an update on IVF will round out the session.

 

Learning Objectives

  • To review the clinical significance of a thin endometrial lining in the context of IVF
