What is a intratuberic gamete transfer?
Gamete intrafallopian transfer, also known by its English name GIFT, consists of introducing the gametes (eggs and sperm) directly into the fallopian tubes by laparoscopy. Therefore, fertilization does not occur in the laboratory as in the case of a uterine embryo transfer.
GIFT generally requires the patient to be anesthetized to minimize discomfort. However, this technique is currently in disuse by most fertility clinics.
