Comparison of reproductive outcome in oligozoospermic men with high sperm DNA fragmentation undergoing intracytoplasmic sperm injection with ejaculated and testicular sperm

Monday, November 30, 2015
The sperm DNA fragmentation index is w5-fold lower in testicular compared with in ejaculated sperm. The use of testicular sperm was associated with improved intracytoplasmic sperm injection outcomes in men with oligozoospermia and persistent high sperm DNA fragmentation.

Microdissection testicular sperm extraction in men with Sertoli cell only testicular histology

Wednesday, July 23, 2014
Diagnostic testis biopsy in nonobstructive azoospermia has little value, even when uniform Sertoli cell–only pattern is seen. When both testis volume and follicle-stimulating hormone are considered, sperm retrieval rates are 7%–45%.

Age does not adversely affect sperm retrieval in men undergoing microdissection testicular sperm extraction

Thursday, February 20, 2014
Sperm retrieval in men undergoing microdissection testicular sperm extraction (micro-TESE) was not negatively affected by age. Men 50 years old who underwent successful micro-TESE were more likely to have larger testes.
