What is Laser Assisted Hatching (LAH)?
Laser Assisted Hatching is a procedure that thins out the protective shell covering the embryo called the Zona Pellucida. The thinning of the zona by laser beam shots from the Diode Laser allows the embryo to hatch out of the shell and promotes implantation. This improves the chances of conception.
Once the egg is fertilised with sperm in the lab, the resulting embryo is placed into the uterus. If everything goes well, it will implant and develop into a growing fetus. But sometimes things may not go as planned—the embryo may not implant or it may implant but fail to develop properly. This may be due to the shell of the embryo being thick, or not able to thin out spontaneously resulting in failure to implant or to implant incompletely.
A study published by the National Library of Medicine showed that patients above 35 years had better implantation rates following LAH with higher clinical pregnancy success rates.
Why do doctors recommend Laser Assisted Hatching (LAH)?
If you’ve been trying to get pregnant for a while and haven’t succeeded, your doctor may suggest the Laser Assisted Hatching procedure. A tiny breach of about 30 microns is made in the shell of the embryo, thereby thinning down the Zona or breaching it. This procedure is particularly useful
- If 2 or 3 IVF cycles have resulted in failed implantation.
- For women over the age of 36.
- In the presence of poor-quality embryos.
- Thick zona pellucida
- Before the PGT procedure.
- Before transferring frozen embryos.
Advantages of Laser Assisted Hatching (LAH)
LAH creates a breach in or thinning of the zona, thus facilitating the opening of the zona more quickly.
Advantages of laser-assisted hatching include:
- Higher success rates for hatching.
- Better survival rates of the embryos.
- Less invasive than other techniques like mechanical hatching or hatching using acid tyrode.
Risks associated with Laser Assisted Hatching (LAH)
While many studies have shown that the technique is useful, it does have some risks associated with it. Risks include:
- The twinning of the embryo.
- Trapping of the embryo in the shell
- Incomplete hatching.
