Tubal Embryo Transfer. The placement of an embryo inside the fallopian tube after in vitro fertilization. The process is meant to mimic the natural process of a fertilized embryo traveling down the tube and implanting in the uterus.
Trans-tubal Embryo Transfer. Replacement of a cleaving conceptus into the uterine tube rather than into the uterus.
tubal embryo transfer. A procedure, usually performed via laparoscopy, in which one or more embryos are inserted in the fallopian tube(s) via a thin catheter a few days following egg retrieval.
TUBAL EMBRYO TRANSFER. A surgical procedure in which an embryo is transferred to the fallopian tubes.
Tubal embryo transfer. A process where an early stage embryo is transferred to the fallopian tube via laparoscopy.
A form of in vitro fertilization (IVF) where the embryo is placed into the fallopian tube. close window
Tubal Embryo Transfer. The transfer of embryos to the fallopian tubes for the purpose of achieving a pregnancy. Embryos may be transferred at the fertilized oocyte (zygote) stage in a ZIFT (zygote intrafallopian transfer) procedure, or 24 hours later at the 2- to 6-cell stage in a TET procedure. (details)
Tubal embryo transfer. An ART technique whereby the embryo, grown in the laboratory, is placed laparoscopically into the fallopian tube. This procedure is often used for women who have had prior uterine surgery or who have abnormally shaped uteri because they were exposed to DES in utero. These conditions would make transcervical embryo transfer difficult or impossible.
A process where a fertilized and divided egg is transferred to the fallopian tubes.
Tubal embryo transfer. The ZIFT-like technique uses an embryo in its early stages of development. (See zygote intrafallopian transfer).
