Hatching With A Laser

While egg and sperm quality, embryo development, and health are all important factors in infertility treatments, there is one more thing to consider. The stage in which the embryo clings to the mother’s uterus, is a critical step that influences the outcome of the entire treatment. A procedure is applied on the zona pellucida layer available outside the embryo in the laser-assisted hatching procedure, which was developed to support embryo attachment. The zona pellucida layer is a tissue that thins spontaneously prior to embryo attachment. However, laser-assisted hatching can be ensured to improve IVF treatment success rates. Depending on the embryo structure and laboratory conditions, a window is opened on the zona pellucida layer using mechanical fine pipettes or laser and drug applications on a regular basis. Because the window has been opened, embryo cells can hatch from this layer and attach to the uterus.

How Does Laser-Assisted Hatching Work?

The use of laser-assisted hatching is a superior technological method. It is a method that must be used with caution so as not to harm the embryo. The laser system is used to make micron-sized incisions without touching the embryo (non-touch laser micro-drilling). Following this application, embryos are transferred before being implanted into the mother’s womb. This application is used for more than just hatching. The use of laser-assisted hatching ensures that positive results are obtained even in individuals who have had three or four failed IVF treatments.

For Whom Is the Laser-Assisted Hatching Method Intended?

The zona pellucida layer, which develops around the egg as a woman ages, thickens. The embryo is also affected by this condition, and the thickened layer has a negative impact on embryo attachment. As a result, laser application can be used for future mothers of advanced age and individuals who have a history of miscarriage. Furthermore, the zona pellucida layer on the eggs of a woman who has become pregnant at a young age can be thick. Also, in such circumstances, laser procedure can be preferred. The laser-assisted hatching method significantly improves IVF treatment success rates. Even after the ninth or tenth IVF treatment trial, a successful outcome is possible.
