Cryopreservation Techniques in ART Success
Cryopreservation of embryos has become one of the most exciting areas in human assisted reproduction. Improvement of the old techniques and introduction of alternative procedures has increased the overall efficiency and extended applicability. Development of other laboratory techniques (embryo culture and preimplantation diagnostics) as well as medical, social, legal and cultural demands requires the rapid and widespread exploitation of new possibilities. The main features of the technical development, includes both achievements and controversies, and the outlines emerging assisted reproductive technique strategies based partially on cryopreservation. Application of these new achievements may substantially modify approach in many fields and increase overall efficiency of the infertility or fertility preservation treatments.
