With the growing popularity of high-tech assisted reproduction techniques such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT), as well as the ovarian stimulation and gamete and embryo freezing protocols that go along with them, there has been much speculation that children born as a result of these procedures might be at higher risk for abnormalities.
* Zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT): Similar to GIFT, except the egg is fertilized in a petri dish and then inserted into the fallopian tube as a zygote (i.e., before cell division).
