Abstract

Background: Pregnancy in cycles with the use of assisted reproductive technologies is possible only with the availability of good-quality embryos and a healthy receptive endometrium. The problem of lack of sensitivity of the endometrium is related to the syndrome of thin endometrium, which is caused by a number of factors. However, there is no single protocol for the treatment of this syndrome, the return/improvement of normal functionality of endometrial tissue, and obtaining the desired pregnancy. Case presentation: We report a case of a 38-year-old Ukrainian woman with a number of unsuccessful tries at pregnancy in cycles with the use of assisted reproductive technologies. We describe a clinical case of the use of mesenchymal stem cells of the human endometrium for a woman with thin endometrial syndrome to increase its receptivity for pregnancy. The basic steps of patient management, protocol of sampling material for obtaining a cell product based on endometrial stem cells, their basic morphofunctional characteristics, and post-treatment procedures to obtain the desired pregnancy are described. Conclusion: Application of autologous endometrial mesenchymal stem cells increases endometrial receptivity and the chance for pregnancy with use of assisted reproductive technologies.
