Gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT)

A technique for assisting conception (see infertility), which can only be used if a woman has normal fallopian tubes. In GIFT, eggs are removed from an ovary during laparoscopy and mixed with sperm in the laboratory before both are introduced into a fallopian tube. A fertilized egg may then become implanted in the uterus.
