Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is a laboratory technique that may be used during IVF to assist in the fertilization of eggs by sperm to create embryos. It was originally created for cases in which there was a low concentration of sperm or no sperm present (azoospermia), but it is now commonly used for many indications (for example, to improve the precision of Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT) of embryos or when Testicular Sperm Aspiration/Extraction (TESA/E) is used for fertilization).
During ICSI, an embryologist using microscope guidance stabilizes a mature egg and pierces it with a thin micropipette that contains a single sperm. The embryologist then guides the sperm toward the inner part of the egg. Afterward, the egg is cultured in the embryology lab. After successful fertilization with ICSI, the egg will show signs of fertilization the following day and in the coming days develop into an embryo ready for genetic testing, freezing, or transfer to the uterus.
“Optimal care of the infertile couple involves compassion, science, and data-driven decisions.”
