OBJECTIVE To analyze the mechanism by which modifications of the intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) technique influence success rates. DESIGN Prospective clinical study supplemented with an experimental analysis of Ca2+ fluxes provoked by the injection procedure. SETTING Private hospital and public research center. PATIENTS Patients treated by IVF and ICSI. INTERVENTIONS Intracytoplasmic sperm injection. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Fertilization and pregnancy rates and intracellular… CONTINUE READING
