A procedure, usually performed via laparoscopy, in which one or more embryos are inserted in the fallopian tube(s) via a thin catheter a few days following egg retrieval.
A surgical procedure in which an embryo is transferred to the fallopian tubes.
A process where an early stage embryo is transferred to the fallopian tube via laparoscopy.
The transfer of embryos to the fallopian tubes for the purpose of achieving a pregnancy. Embryos may be transferred at the fertilized oocyte (zygote) stage in a ZIFT (zygote intrafallopian transfer) procedure, or 24 hours later at the 2- to 6-cell stage in a TET procedure. (details)
The ZIFT-like technique using an embryo in its early stages of development. (see zygote intrafallopian transfer)
An ART technique whereby the embryo, grown in the laboratory, is placed laparoscopically into the fallopian tube. This procedure is often used for women who have had prior uterine surgery or who have abnormally shaped uteri because they were exposed to DES in utero. These conditions would make transcervical embryo transfer difficult or impossible.
The placement of an embryo inside the fallopian tube after in vitro fertilization. The process is meant to mimic the natural process of a fertilized embryo traveling down the tube and implanting in the uterus.
