Inyección intracitoplásmica de espermatozoides

La inyección intracitoplásmica de espermatozoides (IICE) es una forma de fecundación in vitro que tiene lugar fuera del cuerpo. Primero, se recogen los óvulos y se transfieren a un medio especial en una caja de petri. Dentro de las siguientes horas, se inyecta un solo espermatozoide a través de una aguja en el centro del óvulo para contribuir al proceso de fecundación. Si es exitoso, la célula se dividirá y formará las etapas iniciales de un embrión. Si es necesario, el ADN de una sola célula de un embrión podrá ser revisado para asegurarse de que no haya ningún trastorno genético. En general, se recogen varios óvulos, se fecundan al mismo tiempo y luego se reinsertan en el útero para aumentar las posibilidades de que uno se implante y convierta en un embarazo exitoso.
