Needs Assessment and Description
Despite the long-term presence of assisted reproductive technology (ART) and the minimal reported adverse health effects in ART-born children, awareness of safety is a crucial aspect of these treatments. Moreover, new research technologies, large registries, and follow-up studies give new insight into safety aspects. This symposium will provide an overview of new developments within this field for clinicians, researchers, nurses, and embryologists with an interest in infertility, fertility care, reproductive technologies, and safety issues.

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. Discuss recent developments around health issues in children born after ART.
  2.  Assess the scale of the problem and the impact of congenital anomalies, birth weight, blood pressure, the role of culture media, and epigenetics.

ACGME Competency
Medical Knowledge

The risk of poor perinatal outcomes in singletons born after assisted reproductive technology (ART) is increased with an odds ratio of:
a. 1.1-1.4
b. 1.5-2.5
c. 5.0-6.0
