Children born to ovarian hyperstimulated women may have impaired cardiac function

November 28, 2014

The children of ovarian hyperstimulated mothers may be at increased risk of cardiovascular dysfunction, according to recent findings.

In the retrospective cohort study, researchers evaluated 42 healthy Chinese children born to women with ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). Thirty-four children were conceived through non-OHSS in vitro fertilization (IVF) and 48 were spontaneously conceived (SC); all were born between 2003 and 2007. Non-OHSS IVF and SC children were recruited from the same hospital and were matched for gestational age at delivery and birth weight. All children were aged 3 to 7 years.
