Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection(ICSI)
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is an in vitro fertilization laboratory procedure in which a single sperm is injected directly into an egg, using a glass needle ( pipette) This process increases the likelihood of fertilization when there are abnormalities in the number, quality, or function of the sperm.
Fertilization occurs in 50% to 80% of injected eggs. Approximately 40% of all ICSI cycles performed in resulted in a live birth, which is comparableto rates seen with traditional IVE Younger patients may achieve even more favorable results. Factorssuch as poor egg quality and advanced maternal age may result in lower rates of success.
