ICSI Info

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), being injection of spermatozoa inside the mature oocyte mircroscopically, is an idea which came to assisted reproduction technology (ART) after it was found that the fertilization rate was low with the conventional in citro fertilization (IVF) method

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

For those people with recurrent pregnancy loss or infertility, PGS applies the technology from PGD to improve their chances for a successful pregnancy. Embryos are screened for aneuploidy (missing or additional numbers of chromosomes), which is a leading cause of miscarriage and implantation failure (failure of the embryo to implant into the uterus). The goal of PGS is to identify chromosomally abnormal embryos, so they will not be transferred leaving the chromosomally normal embryos to be transferred in the attempt to achieve a successful pregnancy.

  • ICSI: the introduction of ICSI opened the way for other developments such as the use of epididymal and testicular spermatozoa extraction followed by ICSI, leading to a significant improvement in results in many cases that represented a big challenge for fertility specialists. Cases such as azoospermia,whether obstructive or non-obstructive, have the advantage of being in one way or another independent of the three main semen parameters, which are number, morphology, and motility of spermatozoa.
  • The idea of ICSI treatment extension beyond male-factor infertility couples was in the mind of many clinicians who were enthusiastic about this novel technique. We believed that other groups of patients might benefit from ICSI and it should not be limited to male-factor infertility couples.
  • One of the outstanding advantage s of ICSI is in preventing fertilization failure to a certain extent, in comparison with the traditional IVF method in which as many as one-third of treatment cycles result in fertilization failure. That high fertilization failure rate as well as patient stress, treatment expenses, and clinician disappointment after standard IVF in almost all centers providing this service, presented ICSI as an empirical but demanded technology.
