ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection)

The intracytoplasmic injection of sperms (ICSI) is a micromanipulation technique, which consists in the incorporation of a sperm into the egg by means of a micro-needle. This technique represents a distinct progress in the treatment of male infertility. ICSI requires only one sperm for each egg and is an indication as to where there are low or compromised sperm parameters.

According to the best information available to date ICSI is not harmful to the embryo and does not increase the risk of birth defects.
