Webinar series embryology 2024

Controversies and challenges in IVF

ESHRE Webinars

SIG Embryology  organised by the Special Interest Group Embryology

Course description

In four one-hour webinars, the participants will have the opportunity to acquire the latest insights into challenges in Embryology.

Clarifying the controversial Add-ons techniques, and the events that take place from fertilization to the first stages of embryo development, will help embryologists to take informed decisions and understand some of the challenges that are faced on a daily basis with human embryo culture.

The embryologists will also have an opportunity to have an update on the most used IVF lab technique - the vitrification. This will enhance the skills therefore, will also improve laboratory outcomes.

Additionally, we will explore the implications of the using of extra-oocytes with techniques like Rescue-In Vitro Maturation and Rescue-ICSI. These scenarios often present challenges that deviate from routine practices.

Nowadays, new discoveries and events are changing classical concepts of embryology and it is crucial to keep embryologists updated. Our webinars aim to provide valuable tips empowering embryologists to better manage the current IVF laboratory.
