ICSI - against male infertility

Assisted procreation technique against male infertility

ICSI - against male infertility

This technique was developed during the first half of the 1990s to resolve severe problems of male infertility. It involves the injection of a single sperm into the egg by means of a micro-needle with the aid of a sophisticated microscope. It is used in the event of a radical reduction in the concentration, motility or shape of the sperm or due to the presence of anti-sperm autoantibodies that tend to clump together.

ICSI is also used for sperm recovered from the urine (due to retrograde ejaculation) or frozen for patients with anejaculation, possibly due to disability, or patients who have to undergo chemo or radiotherapy or in all cases of TESE, microTESE & MESA.

The stages and results of ICSI are identical to those of IVF-ET treatment, with the exception of the insemination of the eggs.
