Zygote Intrafallopian Transfer (ZIFT)

Zygote Intrafallopian Transfer (ZIFT) is an assisted reproductive technique were the eggs are retrieved from the ovaries just like an IVF procedure. These retrieved eggs are then mixed with sperms in the laboratory. Then the fertilized eggs (zygotes) are placed into fallopian tube with a help of a catheter using a surgical procedure called laparoscopy(as shown in the figure below). The zygote should eventually be implanted in the uterus and develop into a fetus. [1]
