Morphokinetics as a predictor of self correction to diploidy in tripronucleated intracytoplasmic sperm injection derived human embryos

Tuesday, September 1, 2015
Tripronucleated-ICSI human embryos (TPN) display different morphokinetic behaviour according to ploidy; TPN-ICSI that self-correct to diploidy are morphokinetically closer to correctly fertilized embryos. The morphokinetic variable t5 can predict ploidy.

New strategy for diagnosing embryo implantation potential by combining proteomics and time lapse technologies

Wednesday, June 24, 2015
We developed a diagnostic tool using a combination of proteomic fingerprinting and time-lapse morphokinetic analysis to select embryos for transfer according to their implantation potential.

Clinical significance of intercellular contact at the four cell stage of human embryos and the use of abnormal cleavage patterns to identify embryos with low implantation potential A time lapse study

Monday, June 1, 2015
Reduced intercellular contact in four-cell stage human embryos leads to compromised subsequent development and implantation potential. Implantation rates could be improved by not selecting embryos showing abnormal cleavage patterns.

External validation of a time lapse prediction model

Monday, March 30, 2015
This external validation study failed to replicate the performance of the time-lapse published prediction model, but it should inspire each center to build its own prediction model.

Is there a relationship between time-lapse parameters and embryo sex

Friday, January 30, 2015
An analysis of embryo sex by means of time-lapse monitoring identified different cleavage timings. The sex ratio could be affected by the embryo selection method for transfer based on kinetic parameters.

Prevalence consequence and significance of reverse cleavage by human embryos viewed with the use of the Embryoscope time lapse video system

Monday, July 14, 2014
This study investigated the prevalence and significance of reverse cleavage by human embryos observed via time-lapse monitoring. Embryos showing reverse cleavage were associated with compromised subsequent development and implantation potential.

Increasing the probability of selecting chromosomally normal embryos by time lapse morphokinetics analysis

Thursday, February 20, 2014
A retrospective study demonstrates differences in the kinetics between chromosomally normal and abnormal embryos, providing a selection tool that increases the probability of selecting normal embryos through a noninvasive method.

A time to look back analysis of morphokinetic characteristics of human embryo development

Wednesday, November 27, 2013
We define the times associated with morphological changes that occur in embryo development based on time lapse. Subgroups of embryos were compared and related with blastocyst formation and implantation.

Hatching of in vitro fertilized human embryos is influenced by fertilization method

Thursday, October 31, 2013
We describe two distinct mechanisms of in vitro hatching related to fertilization method and demonstrate that hatching pattern is associated with fertilization method, but not with clinical pregnancy.

Comparison of embryo morphokinetics after in vitro fertilization intracytoplasmic sperm injection in smoking and nonsmoking women

Friday, May 31, 2013
The comparison of embryo morphokinetics after IVF-ICSI cycles according to female smoking status showed that early embryo development is impaired by female smoking, leading to poor IVF outcome.

Selection of high potential embryos using time lapse imaging The era of morphokinetics

Monday, March 18, 2013
Time-lapse is a promising tool with the potential to revolutionize embryology and IVF success rates. It provides an uninterrupted information flow on embryo development not otherwise available through standard evaluation.

Time dependent O2 consumption patterns determined optimal time ranges for selecting viable human embryos

Thursday, September 27, 2012
We need new and more effective techniques of embryo selection. Oxygen consumption changes depending on the developmental stage, quality, and implantation success. Our observations indicate that oxygen consumption pattern could be a useful new marker of embryo quality.
