BACKGROUND In non-obstructive azoospermic patients (NOA) besides the mechanical treatment, vital spermatozoa from the tissue obtained from testes by biopsy can be enzymatically prepared. OBJECTIVE To increase the sperm recovery success of testicular sperm extraction (TESE), suitable for ICSI. STUDY DESIGN Prospective, clinical study. In 177 consecutive men who presented with clinical and laboratory data indicating NOA, tissue samples were obtained by microdissection TESE method. Initially… CONTINUE READING
