Intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection ( ICSI )

Intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection, commonly referred to as ICSI, is a well-established microinjection technique, which has resulted in additional options for patients in the treatment of their infertility. ICSI involves the insertion of a single selected sperm directly into the cytoplasm of a mature egg, bypassing all the preliminary steps of sperm binding.  
This procedure overcomes many barriers to fertilisation which can include failed fertilisation from repeated use of conventional IVF, severe male factor infertility, very low sperm counts and/or motility, high number of morphologically abnormal sperm, utilisation of surgically retrieved sperm, use of frozen sperm when limited in number and quality.
The first human pregnancy with ICSI was reported in 1992 and since this time thousands of babies have been born as a result of the ICSI procedure, providing many couples with hope previously not available.
ICSI
ICSI enables fertilisation to happen when there are very few sperm available.
Your clinic may recommend ICSI if:
  • you have a very low sperm count
  • other problems with the sperm have been identified, such as poor morphology (abnormal shape) or poor motility (not moving normally)
  • during previous attempts at IVF there was failure of fertilisation or an unexpectedly low fertilisation rate
  • you need sperm to be collected surgically from the testicles or epididymis (a narrow tube inside the scrotum, where sperm are stored and matured); for example because you have had a vasectomy, you do not ejaculate sperm, or because you have extremely low sperm production
  • you are using frozen sperm in your treatment which is not of optimum quality
  • you are using embryo testing.

  1. ICSI is a technique in which a single sperm is directly injected into an egg to fertilise it and then the fertilised egg (embryo) is transferred to womb. ICSI is one the most cost-effective and successful treatment for infertile men.

  3. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a type of IVF treatment used to address severe cases of male-factor infertility. It involves the use of specialised micromanipulation tools and equipment that allow embryologists to identify and remove individual sperm with a special needle.

  4. ICSI is a progression which profoundly expands the odds of origination with IVF treatment.

  5. Truth be told, there are health risks even in normal non-assisted pregnancies too that every mother-baby duo has to contend with. Mostly, IVF/ICSI isn’t a culprit – parental genetic defects are. Also, standard procedures like the routine transfer of multiple embryos as a means to increase chances simultaneously enhance the prospect of multiple gestations Please visit.
