Gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT)

After ovulation is induced, ova are retrieved via laparoscopy and are transferred along with sperm to the fallopian tubes.

A technique to combine eggs and sperm outside the body and then insert them into the ape tubes.

A procedure in which a surgeon removes eggs from a woman’s ovary, mixes them with sperm and places them in one of her Fallopian tubes to help her conceive a child.

A treatment for infertility. The procedure consists of removing several eggs from the mother, and combining them immediately with a large number of sperm. The mixture is then inserted in the woman’s fallopian tube to allow fertilization. If the procedure is successful, the fertilized egg (zygote) proceeds to the uterus where it implants, and develops into an embryo, fetus, and, eventually, a newborn baby.

GIFT is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) in which sperm and unfertilized eggs (gametes) are placed in a fallopian tube for normal fertilization. The advantages of this procedure over IN VITRO fertilization are that embryos develop in their natural environment and reach the uterus at the right time. GIFT is the only form of ART officially approved by the Roman Gatholic Ghurch because fertilization occurs within the body (in vivo).

Related to in vitro fertilization. The woman’s eggs are collected and both the eggs and the semen containing fertile sperm are injected into the fallopian tubes. The fertilization takes place in the fallopian tubes.

A procedure developed by Ricardo Asch, a contemporary American physician, to help infertile couples conceive. After ovulation is induced, ova are retrieved from a mature follicle via laparoscopy and are transferred along with sperm to the woman’s fallopian tube to facilitate fertilization.

Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer (GIFT) is a technique utilized to aid conception in women, particularly those struggling with infertility. It is only applicable if the woman has functioning fallopian tubes. In GIFT, eggs or ova are extracted from the woman’s ovary during a laparoscopy, a procedure that allows the examination of the abdomen’s interior. These eggs are then mixed with sperm in a laboratory. This mixture of eggs and sperm is then placed into one of the fallopian tubes, where fertilization can occur. Following fertilization, the fertilized egg may implant itself in the uterus.
