Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

What is Intracystoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)?

ICSI is a laboratory procedure and a form of micromanipulation. It involves the injection of a single sperm directly into a mature egg using a glass needle called a micropipette.

Who are ideal candidates for ICSI?

ICSI is recommended for:

  • Infertile couples undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) due to male infertility
  • Patients with a previous history of lack of fertility after conventional IVF

In cases with no sperm in the ejaculate due to a blockage, sperm aspiration or testicular biopsy may be performed to retrieve the sperm for ICSI.
