Assessment of the spindle of egg division

In order to minimize the risk of damage to the egg during intracytoplasmic injection and to monitor the division, after fertilization, the clinic "AltraVita" offers a new service - assessment of the spindle of egg division.

In order to minimize the risk of damage to the egg during intracytoplasmic injection and to monitor the division, after fertilization, the clinic "AltraVita" offers a new service - assessment of the spindle of egg division.

Each egg has in its cytoplasm a high molecular structure called a mitotic spindle. This is a temporary cellular structure that ensures the correct chromosome separation during oocyte fragmentation.

Damage to the structure, changes in location or the absence of the spindle can lead to errors in chromosome separation, and this can cause aneuploidy, cell death, a decrease in the rate of fertilization and the formation of blastocysts.

During the standard ICSI procedure, the spindle cannot be visualized, and there is a possibility of its damage when the egg cytoplasm is punctured with a needle.

Thanks to the development of optical and computational technologies, it has become possible to observe the spindle of division in real time in a live egg. A device called Poloscope allows you to use optical distortion of light waves passing through an egg placed under a microscope, send this data to a PC that analyzes the information received and determines the position of the spindle.

With the information regarding the absence or presence the spindle of division in the oocyte, its localization and clarity, it is possible to make predictions about the quality of the egg. Visualization of the spindle will minimize the likelihood of damage to ICSI / IMSI, and thereby increase the efficiency of fertilization and the quality of embryos.

Also, the obtained information can give a number of answers to questions concerning the causes of poor fertilization and the low quality of embryos in previous programs.

Thank you so much, Dr. Vladimir Valentinovich, you are both a wonderful person and an exceptional specialist!!!

I am ever so grateful to Dr. Asharina, who managed to give me hope on one day becoming a mother again. After a miscarriage with severe complications, all other doctors would only shrug and tell me to try harder and keep waiting.  Dr. Asharina, on the other hand, figured out the problem during the very first visit and prescribed the suitable treatment. Now, we are hoping for positive results.

Thanks to her skills, me and my husband became parents! Thank…

I first went to see Elena Alexandrovna in June. My spermogram was bad. The doctor said that was because of my hormones level and prescribed a treatment plan. After a month, we could already see positive changes. Although it’s still not perfect, I’m hoping for further improvements. The medicine is expensive, but it really works. It’s obvious that the Doctor know what she is doing. They do tests and…
