Breaks and bends in sperm DNA: their impact on the future of the embryo

Breaks and bends in sperm DNA: their impact on the future of the embryo
Conventional semen analysis parameters are not sufficient to evaluate male fertility potential and are not predictive of sperm function. Sperm DNA damage has been identified as a major contributor to male factor infertility and poor IVF outcome due to impaired embryo development. It increases time to pregnancy, hampers and increases the embryo cleavage time, increases miscarriage rates, increases the risk of pregnancy loss after IVF or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and increases birth defects in the offspring (1).
