ICSI, or Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection, consists of introducing a single sperm, previously selected from the semen sample, into the egg to facilitate fertilisation.
This technique requires more complex technology and the fertilisation rates are much higher than with conventional in vitro fertilisation.
ICSI or Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection also allows working with semen samples of poorer quality (lower number of spermatozoa and poorer motility and/or morphology), as only one spermatozoon is needed for each mature egg.
The procedure is that of an In Vitro Fertilisation treatment, but a complex microscope is used with which the embryologists at our centre carry out the microinjection of the spermatozoa into the egg.
