Dr. Shahryar Kavoussi and Dr. Thomas (Rusty) Pool have co-authored a chapter on optimization of treatment outcomes for Assisted Reproductive Technologies in the textbook “Organization and Management of IVF Units” published by Springer in 2016. “This chapter covers various clinical and laboratory techniques that are considered to optimize difficult IVF cases including topics such as endometrial scratches and the use of embryo glue. Some of the clinical and laboratory techniques have been proven to be helpful and others have not, and this chapter provides a good review of such findings. It was an honor and pleasure to work with Dr. Pool on this chapter”.
