SPECIAL LABORATORY METHODS

IMSI (intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection)

Male gametes are examined as regards their morphology under a special microscope, which magnifies the sperm 6000 times. The best morphological sperm cells are subsequently inserted with a needle into the egg.

This method can help in the following cases:

  • repeated failures of in vitro fertilization
  • recurrent miscarriages without any obvious cause
  • low or no fertilization after ICSI
  • severe teratozoospermia – sperm cells do not have normal shape
