Why is ZIFT in disuse?

By Laura García de Miguel M.D., M.Sc. (gynecologist on Clínica Tambre).
Last Update: 05/03/2022

Transtubal transfer is no longer used, since the highest pregnancy rate is achieved with intrauterine embryo transfer.

In the past, ZIFT was a technique that was performed, but its results are not as good as in utero transfer. Likewise, it is a more invasive technique, since it requires sedation of the patient and is performed laparoscopically.

Currently, embryos can be transferred at day 5 (blastocyst), the maximum that technology allows today.
