Broadcasting from Australia: Small Increased Risk for Congenital Anomalies Reported After ART

There is a small increased risk for congenital genitourinary abnormalities after assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs), according to a study published online Oct. 10 in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

Christos Venetis, M.D., Ph.D., from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, and colleagues examined the role of underlying infertility and fertility treatment on congenital anomaly risks in the first two years of life in a propensity score-weighted population-based cohort study. Data were included for 851,984 infants (828,099 singletons and 23,885 plural children) delivered between 2009 and 2017.
