What is intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and how does it work?

Intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) differs from conventional in vitro fertilisation (IVF) in that the embryologist selects a single sperm to be injected directly into an egg, instead of fertilisation taking place in a dish where many sperm are placed near an egg.  ICSI enables fertilisation to happen when there are very few sperm available.

In conventional surgery a long incision is made to gain entry into the abdominal cavity and operate. This result in increased post- operative pain, longer stay in hospital, delayed recovery, long and ugly scars, respiratory problems, higher chance of wound infection, higher chance of incision hernia, delayed feeding after surgery. The incidence of all this is dramatically reduces by laparoscopic surgery.
