In brief: Do you mean ICSI?

Icsi (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) injects a single sperm into each egg; with conventional in vitro fertilization (ivf) we just mix eggs and sperm in the lab and let natural fertilization occur. 3 reasons for icsi 1.
Abnormal sperm tests pre-treatment/ on day of egg retrieval 2. Surgically retrieved sperm 3. Reduce errors in pgd testing for single gene conditions. Otherwise icsi doesn't help.
