The program for in vitro fertilization at Norfolk
Fertility and Sterility
Several aspects of the program of in vitro fertilization (IVF), or, as it is called in Norfolk, the program for the Vital Initiation of Pregnancy (VIP), have been or are in the process of publication. However, because there has been no overall account, it seems appropriate to give a brief report of a general nature covering the period from the beginning of the effort in late February 1980 through December 31, 1981. Although minor changes were constantly made in the protocol, there were two major revisions. Therefore, a discussion of the program during three distinct periods, i.e., 1980, 1981 - Phase I, and 1981 - Phase II, is necessary. During 1980 and 1981 all patients had either no fallopian tubes or irreparable tubes.
