Pregnancy by ICSI Technique in a Lady Aged 44
ICSI is defined as Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection, a recent Fertilization Technique more suitably adapted for men with absent or low sperm count in the ejaculate or with a decreased or absent sperm motility.
ICSI is performed under a high power microscope, with the aid of a fine movement instrument (Micromanipulator), where the sperm injected into the egg through a micro pipette, whose diameter is thinner than the human hair.
This is the FIRST successful ICSI pregnancy reported
from SOUTH INDIA.
This above produce was performed in a 44 year old lady, married for 26 years. Her husband had low sperm count. These sperms were injected into the cytoplasm of five oocytes (eggs) by the ICSI technique resulting in a successful pregnancy. The patient delivered a live baby on 09.05.1997 by caesarean section.
