Assisted Hatching is an advanced new scientific technique found for Women who have failed IVF or have a poor Prognosis for IVF; your doctor may recommend a technique known as Assisted Hatching. In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) failure in couples causes frustrating experience and the failure may occur due to implantation failure of Embryos in the Uterus. But Assisted Hatching may not benefit all IVF patients. Assisted Hatching is suited for patients over 35 years of age. Laser Assisted Hatching is recommended for the patients who have Low Prognosis. Sakthi Fertility is the first centre which avails with the laser Assisted Hatching technique in Udumalpet, Coimbatore, and Tamilnadu, India. Low-Dose Steroids and Antibiotics are given during the treatment of Assisted Hatching. Laser Assisted Hatching technique at low cost in India.
Assisted Hatching is weakening the layer of proteins of Embryo known as the Zona Pellucida by Laser Technology to enhance the chances of implantation of Embryos to the uterine wall. Assisted Hatching is often done along with IVF/ICSI. In Assisted Hatching, the Embryologists uses Micromanipulation under a Microscope to create a small hole in the Zona Pellucida using an acidified solution. The Embryos are then washed to remove any excess acidic solution and returned to the incubator for a few hours before transfer into the Uterus.
Assisted Hatching is thought to be helpful for couples with a poor Prognosis whose Embryos are thought to have less energy to complete the Hatching process.
• Women whose maternal age is over 35 years
• Women with Poor Embryo quality that has slower rate of cell divisions
• Couples undergoing IVF with Embryos having thicker outer shell (Zona Pellucida)
• Women who have experienced one or more failed IVF cycles
• Raised levels of FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone )
• Women who need frozen Embryo Transfer
During Assisted Hatching, after an egg is fertilized in the IVF laboratory, the cells begin to divide. In the initial stages of development, the Embryo is contains an outer layer of proteins known as the Zona Pellucida , which coats the Embryo, is thinned or ruptured. The outer layer of the Zona Pellucida is dissolved with an acidic mixture called Tyrode's solution. Alternately, a laser or fine needle may be used to break open the outer layer of the Zona Pellucida and this enhances the proper and faster implantation. The Embryo is then washed and put back into the culture and into the incubator.
Assisted Hatching is done with a Micromanipulation Technique requiring the use of Microscopic tools, Robotic assistance, and a Microscope to view the Minuscule embryo to weaken the outer layer of Embryo. If you use IVF with Assisted Hatching, the Embryo will be transferred into your Uterus a day after Hatching. Steroids and Antibiotics may be administered to reduce the risk of complications, which can sometimes cause side effects.
Assisted Hatching should be performed by trained Embryologists. There are no greater risk factors involved other than
• The probable damage to the Embryo occurs, if the process is not done efficiently
• Complications to the foetus
• Physical deformity
• Conjoined twins
The doctors review the medical history of the couple and move on with the process if they feel that Assisted Hatching can increase the chance of implantation. The couples need to undertake full medical tests as prescribed by the fertility specialists.
Our fertility experts have discussion sessions with the couple. They help the couples to know about the process, the steps involved in it and about the probable outcome. The couple can thus have a clear idea about what they need to undergo and what they can expect.
Our team of fertility experts ensures that the process of Assisted Hatching is perfectly done. They make sure that no damage is incurred to the Embryo or the Uterus and the other risk factors are minimized to a greater extent.
Absolutely not, it is not recommended for every Women going for IVF, it is recommended only for those who are over 35 years of age. Assisted Hatching is only for patients who had failed IVF cycles or have low Prognosis (less likely to conceive). At Sakthi Fertility, our patients and their previous medical history are reviewed thoroughly before they are actually directed towards Assisted Hatching.
Assisted Hatching is a beneficial technique but still there are some complications that may occur. For instance, some Embryos and Embryonic cells can become damaged or destroyed during the Micromanipulation technique of Assisted Hatching and that may cause failure in IVF.
While some research studies have shown that Assisted Hatching has increased Pregnancy and implantation rates for patients, the procedure does not appear to boost live-birth success rates after IVF. Assisted Hatching has increased risks of having Monozygotic twins. Therefore, fertility specialists may consider the ASRM recommendations and not use Assisted Hatching routinely during IVF.
Assisted Hatching enhances the chance of a successful IVF cycle to a certain extent. The success of Assisted Hatching depends on the quality of the egg and the sperm, the hardness of the zona and the techniques involved in the process. Assisted Hatching increases the chances of implantation in Women over the age of 35 years who had an raised FSH level on day 3 of the menstrual cycle. Success is depends upon the Embryologist's experience and technique.
