Special Issue "Reproductive Therapy and Perinatal Outcome"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Women's Health".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 December 2020).
Assisted reproductive technology (ART) has advanced significantly in recent years, and the incidence of pregnancy by ART has increased. Currently in Japan, 1 in 18 women give birth because of ART. The number of babies born by ART is also predicted to increase in the future. Therefore, perinatal outcomes for pregnancy by ART need to be understood. Currently, pregnancies by ART are known to be associated with a high rate of premature birth, low-birth-weight infants, fetal malposition, an abnormal placenta and umbilical cord, a high rate of cesarean section, perinatal mortality, and a high amount of blood loss during delivery. However, perinatal outcomes for pregnancy by ART are not yet understood in their entirety. Therefore, the Special Issue “Reproductive Therapy and Perinatal Outcome” has been planned.
This Special Issue seeks research papers on various aspects of women’s reproductive health, such as assisted reproductive technology, gynecological diseases, and perinatal outcomes. We also welcome original research papers based on interdisciplinary work and multi-country collaborative research.
