OBJECTIVE To report a successful pregnancy after intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) with artificial oocyte activation (AOA) on a patient whose fertilization rate after ICSI was extremely low; and to report on cytologic analyses of the fertilization failure (FF) eggs after ICSI and a biologic assessment of the sperm of this patient. DESIGN Case report with an assessment of gamete function. SETTING University hospital and an experimental laboratory. PATIENT(S) A couple with severe… CONTINUE READING
