BACKGROUND Freezing/vitrifying and thawing/warming of embryos may impair the successful hatching process of the embryo out of its zona pellucida (ZP) and its following implantation into the uterus. Theoretically, assisted hatching (AH) may facilitate the hatching process and subsequently increase implantation rates (IRs). METHODS In this prospective randomized controlled trial (RCT), the hypothesis was tested that the IR per embryo transferred is higher after transfer (ET) of frozen/vitrified… CONTINUE READING
