Immotile Cilia Syndrome (Definition)

Immotile cilia syndrome is a medical condition in which individuals have a defect in the protein responsible for movement of tiny hair-like structures on the surface of lung pipes. These hair-like structures are called cilia. Cilia serve to move mucus, which entraps inhaled dust and bacteria, up the lung pipes to be cough up. Individuals with this syndrome are particularly susceptible to lung infections because they have difficulty clearing their lungs. Many individuals also have a heart that is pointed to the right ...Read more

What are the tests for immotile cilia syndrome?

What are the tests for immotile cilia syndrome?

Pathology, blood tes: A blood test can identify some patients with ciliary dyskinesia (immotile cilia syndrome), but the standard test is electron microscopy from a biopsy of the lining of the nose or airway. Some centers can evaluate a fresh biopsy sample to see how the cilia are actually working while the cells with cilia on them are alive. ...Read more

It can cause respiratory problems due to the inability to move mucus, as well as infertility i. ...Read more

It is the cytoskeletal componennts that make up the cilia which are defective. see also: http://www.uptodate.com/contents/primary-ciliary-dyskinesia-immotile-cilia-syndrome.

Depends: It depends on what sort of symptoms you are having. If you have fertility issues, sperm can be retrieved and utilized for ivf with icsi. If you have lung problems, a pulmonologist can offer advice. ...Read more

KARTAGENER'S SYND.??: Does kartagener's syndrome sound like the condition you have been told that you have? If you have frequent respiratory infections, you porbably do. In this condition, the cilia in the fallopian tues do not function and infertility is very usually the result. If you are not pregnant in 6 months, you will need in vitro fertilization, which in my experience, is a very successful treatment. ...Read more

Is 45% immotile on sperm test bad ?

Is 45% immotile on sperm test bad 
?

Semen testing: The various tests included with semen testing (count, motility, morphology, etc.) all have some correlation with male fertility, but virtually none are absolute indicators of infertility. So, a decreased motility result still has a reasonable chance of resulting in a pregnancy over time. There are statistics for each value, but the variations are wide. ...Read more

Count is 10 million .. Slugghish motile sperm 25%... Using this immotile sperm will icsi success ? Already we have 2 failed icsi ..

Count is 10 million .. Slugghish motile sperm 25%... Using this  immotile sperm will icsi success ? Already we have 2 failed icsi ..

It should work!: Icsi (injecting a sperm into an egg) bypasses poor motility and should succeed. If you have failed two ivf/icsi cycles, i strongly suggest you defer a third cycle, gather up your records, and undergo a second opinion consult at a facility that has a high ivf success rate (you can see mine, for example, at: http://ivfmd.Com/eng/statistics_1.Htm most of my patients conceive on cycle #1! ...Read more

Sa:motility(rapid)=19.4%-slow=14%-immotile=59.6%/total sperm count=56mill/abnormal forms=80%/vitality=45%/viscosity=normal.What's your opinion?

Sa:motility(rapid)=19.4%-slow=14%-immotile=59.6%/total sperm count=56mill/abnormal forms=80%/vitality=45%/viscosity=normal.What's your opinion?

See answer : If you compare the results with the 2010 world health organization reference values for normal semen parameters, this semen sample is close to being within normal limits: sperm count very good, morphology adequate, and motility and vitality slightly low. Not knowing any further details, might consider a repeat semen sample at some point given variability that can occur. Hope this helps. ...Read more
