Newly reported from the USA: Infertility Treatment Linked to Heart Disease Hospitalization

Infertility treatment is associated with an increased risk for hospitalization due to heart disease, according to a study published in the May issue of the Journal of Internal Medicine.

Rei Yamada, M.D., from Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick, New Jersey, and colleagues examined the association between infertility treatment and postpartum heart disease in a retrospective cohort study of patients who delivered between 2010 and 2018 in the United States. The primary outcome was hospitalization within 12 months postdelivery due to heart disease. The rate difference (RD) of hospitalizations was estimated among patients who conceived with infertility treatment and those who conceived spontaneously.
