The article focuses on the impact of vitrification on the donated oocyte viability. Vitrification is used for the cryopreservation of oocyte in daily practice. Vitrification is performed in In vitro fertilization (IVF) and oocyte donation programs. In this study the number of blastomeres, symmetry and cytoplasmic fragmentation are evaluated.
