Infertilità

Il lungo viaggio della cicogna

P. Giorgio Crosignani

editore: Franco Angeli

pagine: 144

Il lungo viaggio della cicogna inizia molti anni prima del concepimento con la lenta maturazione dei centri che controlleranno la procreazione, situati nel sistema nervoso centrale, e in due ghiandole endocrine: ipotalamo e ipofisi, situate nella base del cervello. All'epoca della pubertà da queste strutture partono segnali che attivano la fertilità di donna e uomo; ma nella donna la capacità di concepire ha precisi limiti di tempo: avviene soltanto nelle poche ore che seguono l'ovulazione e durante i 30-35 anni tra la pubertà e il fisiologico termine del periodo fertile, la menopausa. Per ogni programma procreativo esiste una stretta correlazione tra le probabilità di concepimento e il tempo dedicato ad ottenerlo ma non tutte le coppie che lo desiderano riescono ad avere un figlio; una coppia su dieci infatti presenta problemi di infertilità, riconducibili a difetti presenti sia nella donna che nell'uomo. Scritto con un linguaggio semplice e chiaro, il libro illustra i principali aspetti di questo importante capitolo di medicina sociale riportando le recenti acquisizioni tecniche e le più accreditate valutazioni di argomenti controversi. Concludono il testo le risposte dell'autore alle più frequenti domande sui temi trattati.

Carlo Flamigni

editore: Il Mulino

pagine: 133

Uno dei maggiori esperti di fisiopatologia della riproduzione umana traccia una sintesi delle attuali conoscenze in materia, a cominciare dalle cause della sterilità maschile e femminile per poi entrare nel merito delle più avanzate tecniche della fecondazione assistita. L'argomento porta a diverse concezioni etiche e giuridiche, in particolare per quel che riguarda lo statuto dell'embrione e, più in generale, i confini della scienza. Nel volume sono discusse le diverse posizioni e viene presentato un quadro delle leggi e regolamenti esistenti nei vari paesi occidentali, tra cui l'Italia.

Manual of Intrauterine Insemination and Ovulation Induction

Peter R. Brinsden, Richard P. Dickey
e altri

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 200

Intrauterine insemination and ovulation induction is effective first-line treatment for infertility in many straightforward cases and is preferred by many clinicians because they are less invasive than in-vitro fertilization and its variants. This is a comprehensive account of how to set up and run a successful IUI program. The book addresses the practical aspects of treatments that will produce optimum results in terms of pregnancy outcome and safety, as well as the pharmacological and physiological reasons for their use. Chapters on how to prevent complications of ovulation induction such as multiple births and ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome are included, as well as how to diagnose infertility in both sexes. Laboratory procedures for sperm preparation are described in detail. Worldwide resources for obtaining donor sperm and legal issues that surround the management of patients are included. This manual is of interest to reproductive medicine specialists, general practitioners and general obstetrician gynecologists.

Single Embryo Transfer

Catherine Racowsky, G. David Adamson
e altri

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 324

Multiple pregnancies are the most frequent and serious complication of assisted reproduction. Both high-order multiple and twin pregnancies entail a number of medical and economic outcomes that affect the children, the mother, the parents, the families, and society as a whole. Limiting the number of embryos to transfer is the only method available to decrease the incidence of multiple pregnancies. Single Embryo Transfer reviews the advantages and limitations of this approach to assisted reproduction. The crucial issue of selecting the best embryo will be reviewed in detail. All clinical issues involved in setting up and running an SET programme will be covered, including important topics such as cryopreservation of embryos, embryo donation, and patient counselling. The final chapters on future SET trends in Europe and North America are written by leading figures in the IVF world. The book is of interest to physicians, embryologists, nurses, insurers, politicians, ethicists and patients.

Assessment of Human Reproductive Function

Carlo Bulletti, Charles J. Lockwood
e altri

editore: New York Academy of Sciences

pagine: 452

The state of our understanding of each single step of human reproduction is presented in this volume, which also looks at the ongoing research aiming to improve human reproductive efficiency. Invited chapters focus on the field of endometrial preparation for embryonization, trophoblast capability to implant into maternal endometrial tissue, and evidence-based medicine to improve embryos' implantation and reduce recurrent abortion. A report on human reproduction efficiencies through assisted reproductive technologies is presented as a review by both Europeans and Americans. Among the major issues explored in this volume is the pelvic factor of sterility, endometriosis, miomas, and their medical and surgical treatments according to the principles of evidence-based medicine and evidence-based surgery. Another important issue that is discussed is the possibility of building an artificial uterus using cellular biology (artificial endometrium), transplantation techniques (human uterus transplantation), and transplantation. Evidence-based strategies to prevent premature parturition concludes this section. Surgical management of reproductive organs using the most up-to-date techniques is also be reported on, and particular attention is given to stem cells in gametes and embryonic stem cells.

Diario di un laico. Viaggi, incontri e scontri sulla legge per la procreazione assistita

Carlo Flamigni

editore: Pendragon

pagine: 256

Un libro di attualità che getta una luce attenta, competente e appassionata sulla discussa legge 40, quella che regola la procreazione assistita in Italia e che è stata oggetto di un'aspra battaglia culminata nel referendum del 2005. Carlo Flamigni, una delle voci più autorevoli della comunità scientifica internazionale, si è battuto a lungo in favore di un approccio laico dello Stato in materia di procreatica, la scienza medica che aiuta la riproduzione umana, anche dopo il fallimento del suddetto referendum. Infatti negli ultimi anni ha svolto un'incessante attività di incontri, conferenze, divulgazione e sensibilizzazione a questi temi, sempre a contatto con la gente, direttamente o attraverso la televisione. Tutto questo è narrato nel presente libro che ha le caratteristiche di un vero diario di bordo, con racconti ed aneddoti del tutto personali, raffronti con le leggi di altri Paesi in materia, ma anche approfondimenti scientifici, per rendere più chiari i termini di una questione di cui molti parlano senza conoscerla a fondo. Da questo mosaico scaturisce un vero e proprio trattato sul significato e il valore della laicità.

Bioetica e procreazione assistita. Le politiche della vita tra libertà e responsabilità

Vittoria Franco

editore: Donzelli

pagine: 174

Il libro di Vittoria Franco, filosofa attivamente impegnata in politica, nasce dall'intento di chiarire - nello stile più agile, essenziale, e al tempo stesso rigoroso - il quadro dei diritti in gioco e delle implicazioni etiche che ne conseguono: il diritto alla salute, innanzitutto, insieme al diritto alla maternità e alla paternità responsabili e a quello di crearsi una famiglia. E a fianco ai diritti e ai connessi problemi di libertà di coscienza, sono esaminate ad una ad una le parole chiave del dibattito: embrione, fecondazione eterologa, cellule staminali, criocanservazzone. Emergono così i quesiti essenziali su cui siamo chiamati a misurarci.

Oceano fertilità. Psicologia della comunicazione nell'era della fecondazione assistita

Girolamo Agnello

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 144

Cosa si prova a non poter avere un figlio? Quanto e difficile comunicare alla coppia una diagnosi di sterilita? Come affrontare il 70% dei fallimenti delle tecniche di PMA? Come una legge puo' incidere sul futuro di un embrione? Il testo, nato dalla fusione multidisciplinare medica, psicologica e sociologica, vuole riflettere su queste domande e accompagnare il lettore in una nuova forma mentis sulle criticita nella fecondazione assistita. La trama scientifica si accompagna a un linguaggio diretto dove hanno un posto rilevante le emozioni, cosi' centrali in campi quali la ginecologia, la riproduzione e la psicologia dell'infertilita, che vanno al cuore del bisogno psico-sessuale piu forte e arcaico: quello riproduttivo. Al centro del volume e la relazione medico-paziente che, nel campo dell'infertilita, e caratterizzata dall'attivazione di forti echi emotivi da parte di entrambi. Il volume, a tale riguardo, propone il protocollo SAHARAI che comprende due metodi inediti (il questionario e il nurse-ring) capaci di intervenire, rispettivamente, nella fase diagnostica e in quella terapeutica della fecondazione. I metodi e le riflessioni proposti sono volti alla riduzione dei disagi psicologici delle coppie e al riequilibrio del rapporto medico-paziente. Dal testo emerge forte una nuova idea di formazione per gli operatori dei centri di fecondazione assistita e un percorso di qualificazione per le nuove figure professionali (gli psicologi addetti alla PMA) in accordo con le nuove direttive della legge.
