What is ICSI and how does it work?
Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is performed normal sperm cells under a routine 400 times magnifications. At this level of magnification, it becomes tough to distinguish morphologically healthy sperm.
It becomes difficult to detect accurate anomalies in the behaviour of each sperm. There are techniques that involve around magnification of the sperms around 10,160 times. These are ultra-high sperm analysis techniques.
Thus, the technique or the ICSI process remains the same but the amount of accuracy is what differentiates ICSI and IMSI. It is observed that people who failed the Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection process have got better results or fertile embryo during IMSI. The reason is a high magnification of the sperms in IMSI than in ICSI.
What is IMSI and how does it work?
IMSI or Intra Cytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection is a technique that is used in In-Vitro-Fertilization treatment to examine and select a sperm using a high-magnification digital imaging microscope.
This technique with the help of a digital imaging microscope performs the microinjection into the egg. With the help of this technique, it becomes easy to assess the structure of the sperm and exclude the sperm with suspected variations from being injected into the available eggs.
By using the digital high-magnification of sperm, our scientists at Sree Fertility examine the individual sperm at almost 6000 times magnification. With such high magnification of the sperms, it becomes easy to understand the behavior of each sperm. Most importantly, this helps in understanding the sperms which exhibit abnormalities and are hence excluded from being used in the process of fertilization. Hence, if you have poor outcomes from ICSI treatments, this is what you must try.
The study and experiment-
There was a study on which technique is better. The main outcome measures of routine ICSI were compared with IMSI in three different groups of patients-
- male infertility
- repeated implantation failure group
Later, the results were analyzed to evaluate the effects of the IMSI procedure. This was helpful in finding out the most suitable group of patients who may benefit from the procedure.
IMSI technique caused a significant increase in the fertilization and top quality embryo rates in the male infertility group. There was a significant increase in fertilization and pregnancy rates in the repeated implantation failure group.
Also, no effect was observed in the non-selected group with patients of various indications. Thus, we can understand that IMSI treatment best suits in the treatment of male infertility, because of the high magnification power used.
It was observed that there was a positive effect of Intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection on the outcome of male factor infertility and repeated implantation failure.
When the patient Data was observed, it confirmed that the application of IMSI was beneficial for a selected group of patients with male factor infertility and repeated implantation failure. Hence it was observed that IMSI treatment has proved beneficial than ICSI. Although in some men ICSI works, it has been seen that IMSI produces more accurate and guaranteed results.
Understanding the approach-
The pregnancy in the female is a result of the strong sperm cells of her male counterpart.
