IMSI Treatment

IMSI Procedure- A Significant Approach For Determining The Sperm Quality

An advanced modification of the ICSI technique, IMSI treatment examines the sperm samples under a microscope that is almost 6000x more persuasive to evaluate their "morphology" more effectively. The embryologist can see relatively small deformities in the sperm head that aren't noticeable with standard ICSI at a higher magnification. Although it is yet to be proved to be of benefit for all involving sperm injection, it is recommended in those with a history of repetitive implantation failures, repeated ICSI failures or severe teratozoospermia (abnormal sperm shape).

Steps Of IMSI Treatment Procedure

  • On the very day of the procedure, an embryologist arranges a sample of fresh or frozen semen.
  • An embryologist who is specifically trained in the IMSI and ICSI procedure selects a single sperm for injection under a microscope.
  • The eggs are washed and examined, after the egg collection, in order to determine which eggs are seasoned for injection.
  • The sperm is aspirated using a fine glass needle and then injected into the chosen egg.
  • In an incubator, the injected eggs are cultivated overnight in labelled sterile dishes.

Significance Of IMSI Treatment

Intracytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection (IMSI) is a sperm infusion (ICSI) of an exceptionally chosen single sperm straightforwardly into the full-grown egg. IMSI is a new and moderately unstudied strategy. Sperm have formed heads and frequently have vacuoles (holes) and it is accepted that these strange sperm are less inclined to convey typical hereditary elements. IMSI Treatment utilizes high force amplification to distinguish these irregularities of sperm, thus selecting the most typical looking sperm. Since sperm are so minuscule contrasted with the egg, exceptional high force amplification is required. With the advanced procedure of IMSI Treatment, high-quality sperms are detected for final fertilization.
