Overview

The ability to recognize the nature of failed implantation is extremely  important  to  the  success  of  ART.  To this end, greater emphasis is being placed on understanding crucial biological processes involved in human embryo implantation. Researchers have endeavored to unravel the key aspects of implantation  by  studying  the  various  endometrial, immunological,  genomic  and  embryological  facets  of  the process.  A number of interventions are suggested for improving implantation and more importantly for overcoming the challenge of recurrent implantation failure (RIF). A firm grasp of basic science and an eye for evidence are central to implementing what will work for patients. This meeting will critically  appraise  methods  and  techniques  suggested  for overcoming  RIF  and  enhancing  ART  outcomes.  Participant will be supported through lively discussion and debate as well as opportunities to meet experts for one-on-one discussion.

Learning objectives

• Acquire knowledge on the key biological aspects of human embryo implantation and causes of RIF
• Enhance their understanding of advanced techniques to maximize implantation and treat RIF
• Be able to apply evidence-based practices to achieve optimal outcomes from ART

Accreditation details

An application has been made to the EACCME ®  (European Committee for  Continuing  Medical  Education)    for  CME  accreditation  of  the EXCEMED  “2017  Annual  conference  in  reproductive  medicine  - Recurrent implantation failure: A dive into deep understanding” to be held on 21-22 April 2017 in Milan, Italy.
