ABSTRACT
The article presents a medical research conducted on the effect of intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection (IMSI) on poor embryo development in the same infertile couples with poor semen quality. Under the research, IMSI group was characterized by a higher number of blastocysts per cycle than the intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) group, after a prolonged 5-day embryo culture. It concludes that IMSI procedure improved embryo development.

    BACKGROUND Assessment of male fertility is traditionally based on microscopic evaluation of semen. However, the classical semen parameters do not adequately reflect sperm function, and their clinical value in predicting fertility is limited. We hypothesize that the sperm expression profile could...
