Does assisted hatching improve embryo implantation?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez.
Last Update: 12/28/2020

Yes, assisted hatching is a complementary technique used in the field of assisted reproduction. It involves making a small hole in the zona pellucida of the embryo, which facilitates its expansion and, therefore, implantation in the maternal uterus.

However, assisted hatching prior to embryo transfer should only be carried out in those cases especially recommended by specialists.
