The article presents a study concerning the difference between the conventional technique and laser-assisted intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) among patients undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) in the U.S. The study included 59 patients undergoing IVF. The result shows that there is no significant difference between the laser pre-drilling over conventional technique regarding fertilization.
