A prospective study was carried out to compare the fertilizing capability and pregnancy outcome following intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) using spermatozoa obtained from ejaculates, or surgically from epididymis or seminiferous tubules. A total of 77 ICSI cycles (one per patient) was included. In all, 28 patients had severe oligoasthenoteratozoospermia, 19 patients had obstructive azoospermia and 30 patients had non-obstructive azoospermia. The main outcome measures were fertilization… CONTINUE READING
