Assisted zona hatching (AZH) is a procedure of assisted reproductive technology in which a small hole is made in the zona pellucida, using a micromanipulation, thereby facilitating for zona hatching to occur. Before being transferred back to the womb a hole is made in the outer layer zona pellucida of the embryo or it is thinned, using acid, laser or mechanical methods.
For the first 5 to 7 days of development, the embryo is surrounded and protected by an outer shell called the zona pellucida. In normal circumstances, when the embryo reaches the uterus, this zona partially dissolves and the embryo ‘hatches’ out, allowing it to implant in the uterus. In some patients it is thought that infertility may be caused by a hardening of the zona, which makes it difficult for the embryo to hatch and implant. Assisted hatching is a laboratory micromanipulation technique carried out before the embryos are replaced in the uterus that helps the embryo to hatch from the zona.
Hatching is a process by which the fully developed embryo comes out of its shell (zona pellucida) and starts communicating with the uterus. Under certain circumstances, like thick shell, (in case of endometriosis or due to defective oogenesis), hardened shell (frozen-thawed embryos) etc. artificially starting the hatching process helps embryo to implant. In this process, part of the shell is chopped off carefully using laser machine.
