Unfortunately, very few practical examples of IVM have been documented.
After filtration and 26 hr after the incubation in IVM culture medium (Origio medicult IVM medium, Denmark), the oocytes were detached (denuded) from the cumulus cell mass and 5 matured oocytes (55% maturation rate) were injected with TESA derived fresh sperm and 3 oocytes with 2 pronuclei (60% fertilization rate) were generated.
