Grand Rounds Thanks to ScienceRoll

TEXT SIZE: A A A
Many thanks to Bertalan Mesko at "ScienceRoll" for Grand Rounds 4.22: The Future of Medicine and for including a link to my post regarding "Abnormal Sperm Morphology and Recurrent Pregnancy Loss." When we evaluate the couple for recurrent early pregnancy loss, the focus usually is on the woman, however, it is a great disservice to leave the male partner out of the work up. He could be a carrier of a balanced translocation or other chromosomal abnormality, be the source of a genetic defect, or simply have very abnormal sperm morphology accompanied by a high percentage of aneuploid (chromosomally abnormal) sperm or a inborn or acquired condition that leads to abnormal DNA structure or integrity.
