Zygote Intra – Fallopian Transfer (ZIFT)
This involves the laparoscopic transfer of day 1fertilized eggs (ZYGOTES in to the fallopian tube. It may be done either through the abdominal ostium by laparoscope or through the uterine ostium under ultra sonographic guidance.
- This technique is a suitable alternative of GIFT when defect lies in the male factor (or) in cases of failed GIFT.
- Results are similar to that of IVF. GIFT (or) ZIFT is avoided when tubal factors for infertility are present.
