Intra - Inside
Cytoplasmic – Cytoplasm (fluid) in the cell.
Sperm – Male gamete – sperm
Injection – Injection (Artificial introduction)
Technique of injection of one sperm in to the cytoplasm of one oocyte for fertilization of one oocyte is called Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection - ICSI.
ICSI offer better fertilization rate, and hence better pregnancy rate than conventional IVF.“ ALL IVF CYCLES AT BAVISHI FERTILITY INSTITUTE ARE ICSI CYCLES”.
IVF is done in usual manner.
Oocyte retrieval (egg recovery) is done in usual manner.
The oocytes are prepared for fertilization.
Once the oocytes are ready for fertilization, one single sperm is selected which appears best form the available lot of sperm. Sperm selection is done with great skill depending on the shape, size, motility etc.The selected sperm is made nonmotile. The sperm is then picked up in a fine tube (pipette) and taken to oocyte (egg) to be fertilized.
The sperm is then injected in the cytoplasm of the egg with micromanipulation technique with precision in microns.
Once the injection is complete rest of the IVF procedures and patient treatment is the same.
First ICSI baby of the world was born in 1992.
First ICSI baby by ICSI at Bavishi fertility Institute was born in 1999.
Hundreds of healthy babies are born with ICSI at Bavishi Fertility Institute till now.
