ICSI is a technique for assisted fertilisation developed in the mid-90s to overcome the serious problems of male infertility. The process of fertilisation occurs by means of the injecting of a single spermatozoon inside the oocyte, using a fine needle and with the help of a sophisticated microscope.
ICSI therapy is indicated when there is a serious problem of male infertility due to a marked reduction in concentration, mobility or shape of the spermatozoa, or the presence of auto-antibodies that act against them.
ICSI is also used for spermatozoa recovered from urine, for retrograde ejaculations and for patients with anejaculation due to disabilities or medical treatment (chemo and radio therapy). Furthermore, ICSI is used in all cases of TESE, microTESE and MESA.
