OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficiency of foal production following intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and blastocyst culture of oocytes from mares that died or were euthanized under field conditions. DESIGN Prospective case series. ANIMALS 16 mares (age, 3 to 19 years) that died or were euthanized for various causes.
