Although its occurrence is rare, the presence of large headed or macrocephalic spermatozoa and increased chromosomal abnormality has recently been reported by several groups. Moreover, when intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) was performed with samples containing macrocephalic spermatozoa, lower fertilization and implantation rates result in poor clinical outcome. In order to evaluate the impact of preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) on implantation and ongoing pregnancy rates in these… CONTINUE READING
