Many studies in IVF practice, have tried to assess the maturity and quality of oocytes prior to insemination and relate it to IVF efficiency and to the pattern of ovarian stimulation. They were based on the indirect evaluation of the aspect of the cumulus-corona-cell complex (CCC) which was rapidly shown to be poorly correlated to the oocyte nuclear and cytoplasmic maturity in stimulated cycles. For sperm microinjection procedures, oocytes need to be peeled off from any follicular cell through… CONTINUE READING
