Abstract

RPL is a very debated condition, in which many issues concerning definition, etiological factors to investigate or therapies to apply are still controversial. ML could help clinicians to reach an objectiveness in RPL classification and access to care. Our aim was to stratify RPL patients in different risk classes by applying an ML algorithm, through a diagnostic work-up to validate it for the appropriate prognosis and potential therapeutic approach. 734 patients were enrolled and divided into 4 risk classes, according to the numbers of miscarriages. ML method, called Support Vector Machine (SVM), was used to analyze data. Using the whole set of 43 features and the set of the most informative 18 features we obtained comparable results: respectively 81.86 ± 0.35% and 81.71 ± 0.37% Unbalanced Accuracy. Applying the same method, introducing the only features recommended by ESHRE, a correct classification was obtained only in 58.52 ± 0.58%. ML approach could provide a Support Decision System tool to stratify RPL patients and address them objectively to the proper clinical management.
