Laser assisted hatching
Laser assisted hatching is one of advanced technique of assisted reproduction wherein a targeted laser beam is used to hatch embryo. This technique is designed to improve the efficiency of assisted reproductive technology such as - IVF & ICSI. The targeted laser beam in the (LAH) is used to make the Zona thin or breach the Zona that cell mask can hatch through it and thus can have better implantation rate.
This technique is boost for the couple's whose IVF has been failed many times and it is also better to use.There are host of indications of Lazer hatching and we use it effectively. LAH is one of the major contributors to our success rate.
In laser assisted hatching we take the embryo and we have a Lazer machine, which have smallest diameter of laser beam in medicine. It is nearly 8 microns in diameter. This Lazer is attached to big microscope and prior to transferring the embryo to the womb. We cut the Zona, which is the cover of embryo by using Lazer. By cutting the Zona mark we weaken it so, when we put embryo back into the womb the embryo can easily hatch and it helps in better implantation of embryo in the womb.
It is a great technology which can be used in many patients such as- patients of recurrent ivf failure or patients having more than 37 years age. We use Lazer to cut there embryo cover. In the patients who undergo embryo freezing, have very thick embryo. Due to freezing technology and prior to put these embryo back to womb. We use Lazer to cut their cover and improve the chances of implantation.
There are host of indications of Lazer hatching and we use it effectively and one of the major contributors to our success rate. Lazer has been fantastic addition to technology which we have at IVF lab.
