Abstract

Abstract

Purpose: The microfluidic chip technique gives a chance to select healthy sperm with less DNA damage. In this study, we aimed to determine the effect of microfluidic techniques on sperm selection in ICSI treatment in patients with recurrent implantation failure.

Methods: We retrospectively collected data of the patients between 2017 and 2021 from a single center. We analyzed 90 unexplained RIF patients, at whom, 45 patients underwent microfluid chip technique, and 45 patients with conventional sperm selection.

Results: Pregnancy rates among the microfluidic chip technique and conventional swim up sperm selection cycles were 36% versus 34%, (p=0,4), clinical pregnancy rates (CPR)  were 33% versus 31% (p=0,3) and live birth rates (LBR) were 26% versus 25% (p =0,4).

Conclusion: Our study showed that the microfluidic technique does not change CPR, and LBR during IVF treatment for couples with recurrent implantation failure.
