The article presents a study which determines the pregnancy rate after vitro fertilization (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) stratified by blastocyst morphology and age. It notes various researches which investigate the correlation between blastocyst morphology and pregnancy rate following IVF or ICSI procedures, however, it failed to determine which embryo has lead to pregnancy. The study found out a significant correlation between the blastocyst score and pregnancy outcome.
