ABSTRACT OBJETIVOS: analisar a relevância dos parâmetros seminais nos resultados dos ciclos de inseminação intra-uterina (IIU) em pacientes com causa masculina de infertilidade e salientar o caráter prognóstico de cada parâmetro para o sucesso da técnica. MÉTODOS: duzentos e trinta e nove ciclos de IIU (155 casais) foram analisados durante período de 15 meses. Todos as pacientes foram submetidas à indução da ovulação de acordo com protocolos do I Consenso Brasileiro de Indução de Ovulação. A análise seminal foi realizada de acordo com os critérios da Organização Mundial da Saúde (OMS) para parâmetros como concentração e motilidade e critério estrito de Kruger para avaliação da morfologia. O preparo da amostra para IIU foi realizado por meio de gradientes descontínuos de densidade (ISolate®). Foram formados dois grupos de pacientes de acordo com o resultado de gestação: grupo G - gestação positiva e grupo NG - gestação negativa. RESULTADOS: não houve diferença significativa nos valores obtidos relacionados à concentração total de espermatozóides/mL de sêmen, motilidade total, motilidade de formas progressivas antes e depois do processamento seminal. Quando a morfologia estrita de Kruger foi comparada entre os dois grupos, diferenças significativas foram encontradas (grupo G=10,6% de formas normais; grupo NG=6,4% de formas normais; p<0.05) quando o número de espermatozóides/mL inseminados foi superior a 15 milhões/mL, a taxa de gravidez foi significantemente maior. CONCLUSÕES: tanto a morfologia estrita de Kruger como o número de espermatozóides inseminados parecem ser fatores prognósticos positivos para o estabelecimento da gestação, devendo ser salientados na investigação do homem infértil.

    ABSTRACT: To compare fecundity rates following intrauterine insemination (IUI) with donor sperm frozen conventionally versus an IUI-ready preparation. Both retrospective results and a prospective, randomized study where recipients were assigned to one of two sperm cryopreservation methods in each cycle of intrauterine insemination are reported. University-based infertility practice, affiliated private practices, and andrology laboratory. Women desiring therapeutic insemination in an effort to establish pregnancy. Intrauterine insemination with donor sperm frozen conventionally or by an IUI-ready protocol. Cycle fecundity in donor IUI recipients. In a retrospective analysis involving 642 inseminations in 209 recipients, 79 pregnancies were recorded for an overall pregnancy rate of 12.3% per insemination (or cycle): 11.3% with IUI-ready sperm and 13.9% with conventionally preserved sperm. In a follow-up prospective, randomized study, the pregnancy rate for IUI-ready sperm preparations was 36% per cycle (14 of 39) whereas that for conventionally preserved sperm was 19.6% per cycle (9 of 46). Thirteen of the 23 pregnancies occurred in the first study cycle of insemination; only two pregnancies were observed in patients undergoing more than four cycles of insemination. Cycle fecundity for IUI-ready donor sperm is equivalent to conventional cryopreserved sperm based on both prospective and retrospective assessments.

    ABSTRACT: The interaction between sperm and the human female tract has been largely ignored. This review summarizes the data available from animal species with specific reference to sperm in the oviduct. Our knowledge of sperm transport within the human female tract is explored and, using the data available from animal species, three lines of future experimental design are suggested. Firstly, there is the need to improve and develop techniques to recover sperm successfully from the tract. Second, an in-vitro approach which examines the modulation of reproductive tract fluids on sperm function is advocated. Third, an in-vitro tissue/cell culture system is required to investigate in more detail the interaction between the epithelium and sperm. Using such approaches many of the questions posed in this review can be addressed confidently in the near future.

    ABSTRACT: A systematic review was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of intrauterine insemination (IUI) with or without ovarian stimulation using gonadotrophin in the treatment of persistent infertility. Relevant randomized controlled trials were identified by a diverse strategy including a hand search of 43 core journals from 1966 to the present. Two approaches to meta-analysis were used to summarize data. First, using a standard Mantel-Haenszel approach, eight trials comparing FSH/IUI with FSH/timed intercourse for unexplained infertility were combined. The common odds ratio for pregnancy was 2.37 [95% confidence interval (CI), 1.43, 3.90], suggesting a significant improvement with IUI following ovulation induction in this patient group. Although the data were statistically homogeneous, clinically important heterogeneity was present. Second, across all diagnostic groups, the independent effects of treatment with follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), clomiphene citrate, IUI, as well as the diagnoses of male factor and endometriosis were assessed using stepwise logistic regression. Based on 5214 cycles reported in 22 trials, the odds ratio for pregnancy associated with FSH use was 2.35 (95% CI, 1.87, 2.94) for IUI, 2.82 (95% CI, 2.18, 3.66) for male factor, 0.48 (95% CI, 0.37, 0.61), and for endometriosis 0.45 (95% CI, 0.27, 0.76). This summary of the best available evidence may prove useful in counselling couples who are considering FSH and/or IUI therapy.
