Assisted reproduction in Hong Kong: status in the 1990s
Hong Kong IVF Study Group
Information on assisted reproduction in Hong Kong for the period from January 1992 to December 1993 was collected from the three centres that offer assisted reproduction. Altogether, 912 treatment cycles of in vitro fertilisation and embryo transfer, 158 treatment cycles of gamete intrafallopian transfer, and 87 cycles of zygote intrafallopian transfer were initiated during this period. The delivery rates per cycle started were 8.4% for in vitro fertilisation, 29.1% for gamete intrafallopian transfer, and 13.8% for zygote intrafallopian transfer. During the same period, 233 cycles of replacement of frozen thawed embryos were completed with a delivery rate of 11.2% per cycle. Pregnancies were also achieved using oocyte donation and micromanipulation techniques.
