Laparoscopy (LAP)
The surgical visual examination of the pelvic organs (ovaries, uterus, fallopian tubes) through the use of a small telescope called a laparoscope. The abdominal cavity is inflated with carbon dioxide and a fiberoptic instrument is placed through the navel and through entry sites in the lower quadrants.
Live birth per cycle rate
Shows the percentage of cycles started that resulted in a live birth (a delivery of one or more living babies). This rate is the one many people are most interested in when considering ART because it represents the average chances of having a live-born infant by using ART.
Live birth per egg retrieval rate
The percentage of cycles in which eggs were retrieved that resulted in a live birth. It is generally higher than the live birth per cycle rate because it excludes those cycles that were canceled before egg retrieval was carried out.
