ASRM Today - Document Review: ICSI for Nonmale Factor: a committee opinion with Denis Vaughan

Dr. Denis Vaughan
"It does seem to hold true that ICSI is beneficial when you fertilize eggs that have been previously cryopreserved because there are some changes that occur in the zona pellucida and the structure of the egg itself." - Denis Vaughan, M.D.

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection or ICSI is a micromanipulation procedure in which a single sperm is injected directly into an egg to attempt fertilization, used with male infertility or couples with prior IVF failure. There is a new updated document from ASRM on ICSI for non-male factor and we talk about it today on the podcast.

Dr. Denis Vaughan is a Reproductive Endocrinologist and Director of Clinical Research at Boston IVF and a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and the New England Fertility Society.
