SART has released its 2014 report on assisted reproductive technologies in the United States. In 2014, 375 SART member clinics performed 190,384 ART cycles and 65,175 babies were delivered using ART from SART clinics. These numbers may be adjusted as results come in from ongoing pregnancies. This is an increase from the 174,962 cycles done in 2013 and the births of 63,286 babies resulting from them.
Continuing technical refinements in ART practice support developments that make the treatment safer for mothers and babies. Elective single embryo transfer (eSET) cycles accounted for 27.2% of cycles overall in 2014 compared to 20.6% in 2013. This, along with the overall trend to transfer fewer embryos across all age groups, resulted in reduced rates of multiple births- triplets and twins.
