Purpose: Preliminary data from some research centers indicate that assisted hatching might be of value to increase embryo implantation rate in the human, at least in selected cases. It is not clear, however, whether this technique would be of benefit for all patients undergoing an embryo transfer. We therefore performed a prospective randomized study to evaluate the effect of assisted hatching on the implantation rate in our in vitro fertilization (IVF)/intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI… CONTINUE READING
