Abstract

Embryo transfer is one of the most important steps of the in vitro fertilization procedure. It may be very traumatic or impossible in selected cases with previous history of cervical surgery or congenital cervical anomalies.

A 23 year old cervicovaginal agenesis patient previously operated for vaginal reconstruction with sigmoid had undergone in vitro fertilization for tubal and male factor.

Transcervical embryo transfer was not possible, so transmyometrial embryo transfer with Towako transfer catheter was considered and performed. Embryo transfer resulted in biochemical pregnancy.

Transmyometrial embryo transfer technique might be a good option to overcome problems of difficult transfers related to congenital or acquired cervical abnormalities.
