IVF assisted ICSI optical Spindle View procedure allows the embryologist to monitor the cell division after the fusion of a sperm and an egg. The specialist evaluates if the embryo is growing naturally and is healthy. Once it is detected that the embryo is healthy, it is placed in inside the womb of the woman.

IVF and ICSI with Optical Spindle View is form of fertility treatment that uses a specialized technique to select a healthy embryo for facilitating fertility. The procedures of IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) and ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) follow fertilizing an egg and a sperm in a laboratory dish and developing a cultured embryo to be planted into the woman’s womb.
Before placing the embryo, the embryologist carries out optical spindle view technique to avoid placing embryo with genetic risks. IVF and ICSI assisted Optical Spindle View offers an accurate way of selecting the right embryo with no genetic abnormalities to facilitate a more successful pregnancy compared to solely IVF and ICSI treatment.
Each egg retrieved from a woman has a mitotic spindle in it that helps in chromosome division in the egg. A damaged spindle leads to inaccurate chromosome division leading to failed pregnancy and miscarriage. It is not possible to spot the exact location of the spindle in an egg with the naked eye, thus increasing chances of the spindle getting damaged.
During the ICSI procedure, the embryologist makes sure that he does not damage the chromosome spindle when inserting needle into the eggs. It is done by a special way of holding the polar body of the egg in a way to spot the spindle. Otherwise, the development of computational and optical technology assisted by a machine (Poloscope), enables viewing the chromosome spindle clearly, thus preventing egg damage, increasing embryo formation rates, increasing fertilization rate, and improving the embryo quality.
The Poloscope functions by making use of optical deviation of light waves to allow it to pass through the egg under the microscope. After evaluating the deviation on a computer, the embryologist locates the spindle. Thus, the machine allows a thorough screening of the egg to understand its genetic qualities and if it is suitable for fertilization.
A healthy sperm is used to inject it into the matured egg through the ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) technique to allow them to fuse together. The cultured embryo is then placed into the woman’s uterus to aid pregnancy, There are a few preparations before IVF and ICSI that need to be taken.
This is how IVF and ICSI Spindle Optical View is performed:
After the embryo is released in her womb, the woman may feel a little pain or cramping for a few hours. The recovery of IVF and ICSI Spindle Optical View is quick and short and the woman feels better after a couple of hours after the procedure. She is sent home the same day and is asked to take rest. On the next day, she can resume with normal activities without any problem.
Generally, she is advised not to engage in any strenuous activities. During the period of pregnancy, the woman usually suffers from anxiety. In case of persistent pain or cramping, she should visit with the doctor.
