The Intra Cytoplasmic Injection is done if there is failure with In Vitro Fertilization and on severe male factor, where sperm are unable to penetrate the ovule. Highly sophisticated equipment is required for this type of treatment.
ICSI: Intra Cytoplasmic Injection.
There are different groups of procedures for Assisted Reproduction, so it is the goal of our Center to guide the patient and provide necessary information as to increase the possibilities of pregnancy. This type of treatment applies in patients that have undergone various less-complex treatments or that have had no success through natural means.
This procedure started to be performed on male patients that had a low sperm-count and that could not be solved by using conventional FIV, specifically on patients where the progressive mobility and normal morphology did not yield more than 500 thousand sperm; as well as patients with no sperm on their semen (Azoospermia).
Candidates for ICSI
Obstructive Azoospermia, Non-Obstructive Azoospermia or Testicular causes (Sertoli Syndrome in evolution). In these cases, sperm is recovered from the epididymis or the testicle, respectively, using a surgical intervention done on the same day or the evening before the recovery of the female spouse. Couples with failure during the fertilization in a cycle previous to the conventional FIV. Sperm-count under 1 million with progressive motility and normal morphology after spermatic separation.
