Abstract

MENDEZ L, Yoeli; URBINA, María Teresa; MEDINA, Randolfo  and  JORGE LERNER, Isaac Benjamín. Comparación de la sobrevida y de los patrones de movilidad de espermatozoides incubados en medios HAM´S-F10 y G-IVF. Rev Obstet Ginecol Venez [online]. 2010, vol.70, n.1, pp. 42-46. ISSN 0048-7732.

Objective: To compare survival and motility of sperm incubated in HAM’S-F10 and G-IVF media. Methods: Subsamples of motile sperm recovered by density gradients of 31 normospermic men were incubated in each medium for 18-20 hours in 5 % CO2 atmosphere. Subsequently, sperm survival and motility were assessed. Setting: Unidad de Fertilidad Unifertes, Clínica El Ávila. Caracas, Venezuela Results: Average sperm survival and progressive motility were significantly higher in G-IVF (P<0.01). Consequently, average percentage of immotile sperm was significantly lower (P<0.01). Conclusion: Sperm survival and progressive sperm motility were significantly higher in G-IVF medium than in HAM’S-F10.

Keywords : Sperm; Sperm survival; Sperm motility; HAM’S-F10; G-IVF.
