Influence of post-thaw culture on the developmental potential of human frozen embryos
Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics, 06/04/2012
Rato ML et al. – This retrospective analysis indicates that a short post–thaw culture period is associated with higher implantation and live birth rates per embryo. This study supports selection of frozen–thawed embryos strictly based on blastomere cryosurvival and raises the hypothesis that environmental factors may have an important role on embryo implantation and developmental potential during post–thaw culture.
