World report on fertility treatments reveals high use of intracytoplasmic sperm injection

(European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology) The editor-in-chief of one of the world's leading reproductive medicine journals, Human Reproduction, has attacked the rising use of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) for the treatment of infertility, following publication of the latest world report on assisted reproductive technologies; he brands it as 'ineffective and costly care.'

Davidson, Yaqiong Liu, Tracey Griffiths, Celine Jones, Kevin CowardAbstractTo improve success rates, assisted reproductive technology (ART) procedures continually undergo optimization and enhancement such that the best quality gametes and embryos can be identified and manipulated, thus improving clinical outcomes. Laser technology is now being applied across ART to reduce procedure times and increase the consistency and reproducibility of traditional ART techniques such as assisted hatching, embryo biopsy, intracytoplasm...

Conclusion The periconceptional environment and lifestyle factors modify sperm epigenome. This alteration might be maintained in the zygote and throughout development, thereby leading to the inheritance of newly acquired pathologies. The role of sperm miRNA, not only as innovative markers of fertility issues but also as vectors involved in the inheritance of paternal diseases, appears to be crucial. Overweight and obesity seem to alter sperm miRNA profile, thereby leading to transmission of different miRNA profiles in zygote, with consequences on embryo development. In long term, metabolic disorders have been described in...

Authors: Lopes LS, Esteves SC Abstract In recent years, growing evidence has challenged the notion that sperm quantity and quality are not essential for the success of assisted reproductive technology. DNA fragmentation assessments on ejaculated and testicular sperm harvested from non-azoospermic infertile men have reported a remarkable decrease in DNA damage in spermatozoa directly retrieved from the seminiferous tubules. Moreover, emerging evidence using molecular genetic techniques indicates that aneuploidy rates are lower in testicular sperm than in ejaculated counterparts. The use of testicular sperm from non-...

Spermatogenesis is a complex process requiring the proper functioning of thousands of genes combined with the correct balance of hormones, temperature, and other environmental factors. Sperm isolated from the testicle, however, are generally immotile and immature —incapable of fertilizing an egg on their own, although they can be used for intracytoplasmic sperm injection. Sperm mature during transit through the epididymis, where morphologic, chemical, and other changes occur, giving them capacity for fertilization.

CONCLUSION: The fastest clinical pregancy declining age is ranged between 25 and 32, and female infertility type is evidenced as another key predictive factor for the cumulative outcome of ART. PMID: 30947663 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Infertility affects approximately 11% of couples in the United States (1). Infertility treatment has been linked to hypertensive disorders of pregnancy including pre-eclampsia, a leading cause of maternal and fetal morbidity worldwide (2, 3). Infertility status and infertility treatment may function independently as risk factors for hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (3). Most of this risk may be due to the higher frequency of multifetal gestation; however, risk remains increased even in singleton gestations for those undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI; 4,5).
