Intra-Cytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection
Technology is not same at all the time. It keeps on changing. The same way, on time updates are essential in the medical technologies as well. Sree Fertility & IVF Centre is one of the best fertility centres in Hyderabad,which moves on with the advancements and the results are reflected in your smiles.embryologist IMSI is an example for that.
It helps magnify the image of the sperm 7,200 times, thereby allowing doctors to pick the best looking healthier sperms. The machine is an advanced version of the earlier technique of Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), having the magnification capacity of 16 times higher than ICSI.
In ICSI technique, an egg is held and injected with a husband sperm, with the help of a machine called micromanipulator. If the husband has no sperms, then sperms are obtained by doing a testicular biopsy. The fertilization occurs outside the woman’s body. The baby/embryo is created outside the body of the mother and then placed inside the mother’s womb.
The IMSI method was first developed in 2004 by a team led by Benjamin Bartoov, of Barilan University in Israel. The pregnancy rate in patients jumped from 30 % to 66 %.
IMSI helps improve the success rate among men with the worst prognosis and is said to be more beneficial than ICSI in patients with previous two IVF or ICSI failures. It is also useful in couples with unexplained infertility. It has been shown that IMSI results in better egg fertilization rates, better quality embryos, better rate of blastocyst formation and therefore better pregnancy rates.
