To increase women's chances of long-awaited pregnancy at the Motol hospital, they turn to additional reproductive technologies:

    ICSI is the direct introduction of a sperm into the egg by means of special micromanipulators and a microscope. For ICSI, the embryologist tries to select the fastest and morphologically normal spermatozoa. Used for male factor infertility.


    IMSI - performed within the framework of ICSI. The IMSI procedure allows you to select the best sperm at a magnification of 6600 times, while the above ICSI technology involves sperm selection at a magnification of 400 times. IMSI allows to determine the smallest details of changes in the morphology of spermatozoa. This makes it possible to avoid the pathological development of the future embryo and increases the woman's chances of a healthy pregnancy.


    PICSI - this method allows you to select the best sperm for ICSI in the Czech Republic, taking into account its biochemical maturity, based on the molecular criteria. PICSI allows to avoid embryos with damaged DNA and chromosomal abnormalities, which increases the probability of successful implantation and reduces the chances of abortion.


    Cryopreservation (vitrification) in the Motol hospital is the freezing of good quality embryos. It makes it possible to store unused cells for re-implantation. Applies in case of failure of the first attempt of IVF. After warming, they practically do not differ from embryos to vitrification. They are also successfully implanted and developed. All embryos undergo warming during auxiliary hatching. During this procedure, its shell is dissected by a laser beam at the safest angle to facilitate the release of the embryo from the envelope and increase the chances of successful implantation.
