Description:

The endometrium is a highly dynamic tissue that undergoes physiologic changes in response to steroid hormones. Embryo implantation is an incredibly complex and multi-factoral process, dependent on a healthy embryo, a receptive endometrium, and immune protection. This lecture will review the normal development of a receptive endometrium, conditions which effect the endometrium and treatment strategies for improving receptivity, thin lining and implantation failure. 

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Brief review of phases of endometrial growth
  • Common endometrial pathologies in the sub fertile population
  • Assessment options for the endometrium
  • Strategies to improve endometrial lining and receptivity
