LASER ASSISTED HATCHING

In Laser Hatching technique, zona pellucida, a glycoprotein layer hemming in the plasma membrane of mammalian oocytes, is slightly opened through an anodyne laser to attenuate the upper layer of the embryo so that it can be removed from Zona Pellucida and placed in a microscope. The Zona holds a vital role in the fertilization process as only one sperm can perforate the Zona and fuse with the egg to fructify fertilization.

Laparoscopy: A procedure conducted using a small but significant telescope named ‘Laparoscope’ to which a light source and camera are attached. It enables doctors to see ovaries, outside of the uterus and fallopian tubes inside the abdomen. Doctors can perform surgeries while looking inside the abdomen. Laparoscopy is done to determine the causes of infertility, symptoms like pelvic pain & abdominal pain and to check if there are any scar tissues or blockage in the fallopian tubes. Doctors use this technique to treat cysts, endometriosis, and fibroidsThe laser, that softens the shell of the embryo, is non-contact, which means that embryo is not in direct contact with the laser. The opening of the embryo is enhanced with the help of a laser. The whole procedure is carried out with thorough precision and delicacy. This technique improves and ramps up pregnancy rates among women.

Laser-Assisted Hatching takes remarkably less time and shields the embryo from toxic chemicals so the collective effect of these factors reduces the stress placed upon the embryo during the process. The technique also ensures that the embryo is less exposed to physical manipulation.

Laser-Assisted Hatching is useful for the following patients:

  • Who’ve failed previous IVF/ICSI cycles
  • Who have frozen embryo transfer
  • Women who are older than 37 years of age hence produce eggs with a harder Zona Pellucida
  • Women who have a high Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) level
