ICSI IVF, an innovative technique

How does this technique work?

The ICSI IVF technique consists of inseminating an ovum through the microinjection of a single spermatozoon.

In order for the ICSI IVF technique to be effective, it is an essential requirement for the oocyte to be mature.

To ensure that the oocyte is mature, cumulus cells first need to be stripped from oocytes, eliminating the cells that surround them in order to verify their maturity.

The spermatozoon is isolated after obtaining a semen sample or after a testicular biopsy, and is then injected in the previously-stripped mature ovum.

A team of expert biologists will select the spermatozoon that has the best chances of insemination based on its mobility and morphology.

Once the spermatozoon has been selected, it is first immobilized in order to facilitate its handling. A high viscosity substance that slows down the spermatozoon’s movement and allows for its subsequent retrieval is used in the microinjection dishes. Once immobile, it is prepared to be injected.

Who is the ICSI IVF technique for?

  1. This technique is particularly targeted at couples whose infertility is related to the male, such as:
  2. Having a low sperm count, sperm with mobility problems and/or a bad morphology.
  3. Men who have undergone a vasectomy.
  4. Infertility caused by an infectious disease or immunity-related infertility.
  5. People who have difficulty ejaculating under normal conditions, such as with retrograde ejaculation.
  6. Men who have been subjected to radiotherapy or chemotherapy.
