ICSI and IMSI are primarily used when the sperm of a man is of bad quality, there are too few sperms or sperm die right after ejaculation. Micromanipulation is also indicated in case of too thick egg walls when the sperm can not penetrate it.
There are two types of micromanipulation. Traditional ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) is microinjection of the sperm into the oocyte. The latest method is IMSI (Intracytoplasmic Injection With Morphologically Selected Sperm). These methods differ by the type of optical equipment used for the procedure.
In ICSI, sperm nucleus is not clearly seen (the image is enlarged by 400 times) and the specialist can not accurately identify whether genetic material is damaged or not. If it is damaged, the embryo will not develop and pregnancy will not occur.
The latest IMSI method (the image is enlarged by 6.000 times) allows selecting the best sperm and consequently, the chances to get pregnant are increased. This method makes it possible to accurately assess sperm, identify possible defects and inject into the uterus only the best genetic material.
