A healthy pregnancy depends on the embryo's quality, and the embryo quality depends on the types of gametes' health, i.e., sperm and ovum. The defected sperm can form the embryo but can lead to failed implantation and increase the risk of miscarriage. IMSI is performed on couples with repeated IVF failures and has defected sperms. IMSI with the IVF technique allows the couples to have a healthy baby. Due to the higher magnification microscope used in this technique, the normal or highly fertile sperms have been selected to lower the rate of miscarriage and infertility. This method is recommended for patients with recurrent implantation failure and abnormal sperm shape. This method can identify the smallest abnormalities in the morphology of the sperm that cannot be detected by using a simple microscope. The sperms that are selected for microinjection have the most normally shaped nuclei. It is the only technique in which sperm selection is performed just before the microinjection.
The success rate of IMSI is higher than the conventional ICSI procedure. In the IMSI technique, the magnification is 400 fold higher than in the ICSI procedure. IMSI improves the IVF success rate and reduces the chance of aneuploidy and miscarriages.
