Spinal cord injury (SCI) in men results in defects in erectile function, ejaculatory process and male reproductive potential. There are alterations in the capacity of men with SCI to achieve reflexogenic, psychogenic and nocturnal erections. The sexual function in different stages after SCI and the types of erections depend mainly on the completeness of the injury and the level of neurological damage. Furthermore, most of the SCI men demonstrate defects concerning the entrance of semen into the… Expand
Infertility in Men with Spinal Cord Injury: Research and Treatment
TLDR
The most apparent differences in male-factor symptoms between SCI and non-SCI patients are the high occurrences of anejaculation and atypical semen profiles in men with SCI. Expand
Infertility inMen with Spinal Cord Injury : Research and Treatment
Spinal cord injury (SCI) occurs most oen to young men. Following SCI, most men are infertile due to a combination of erectile dysfunction, ejaculatory dysfunction and semen abnormalities. ErectileExpand
Sexual and reproductive abnormalities in patients with spinal cord injuries
TLDR
A better knowledge of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology in SCI patients provides a more predictable understanding of sexual and reproductive dysfunctions. Expand
Sperm Recovery for Men with Spinal Cord Injury; Vasal Flush is the Preferred Method for An-ejaculatory Males
TLDR
The Vasal Flush technique provided the best sperm samples and was recommended for an-ejaculatory males regardless of the underlying disorder and is performed as an isolated minimally invasive surgical method of sperm retrieval under local anaesthesia. Expand

Should sperm be cryopreserved after spinal cord injury?
TLDR
It is suggested that sperm cryopreservation may contribute to patient-centred care management of SCI patients’ fertility, although there is no scientific evidence that cryop Reservation will improve fertility outcome after SCI. Expand

Male infertility and erectile dysfunction in spinal cord injury: a review.
TLDR
The majority of men with SCI are infertile because of a combination of ejaculatory dysfunction, impaired spermatogenesis, and poor semen quality, and further studies to elucidate the cellular and molecular mechanisms of diminished sperm quality are needed. Expand
Reproductive aspects in spinal cord injured males
TLDR
At the end of the treatment an improvement of sperm concentration and progressive motility was evident, but the result of highest statistical significance was the decrease of abnormal sperm morphology. Expand
Ejaculatory stimulation, quality of semen and reproductive aspects in spinal cord injured men
TLDR
This is a retrospective study of 39 male spinal cord injured patients who, over the last 5 years, have consulted us for ejaculatory dysfunction or infertility, and recent methods of micromanipulation of gametes should considerably improve the prognosis of the seminal insufficiencies in men with spinal cord injury. Expand
Erectile and ejaculatory function of males with spinal cord injury.
TLDR
In conclusion, SCI is usually accompanied by considerable sexual dysfunction, but most patients are still capable of functioning sexually, and in the rehabilitation process after SCI, sexual counselling and information may be valuable. Expand
Male fertility and sexual function after spinal cord injury.
TLDR
Sexual gratification can be promoted in the context of an understanding relationship in which the cord-injured person can gain pleasure from pleasing his partner and also from his partner's exploration of erotogenic areas not affected by the spinal cord injury. Expand

TLDR
Despite the poor seminal quality, increasingly more men with SCT have become fathers through techniques ranging from simple homologous insemination to sophisticated assisted reproduction techniques such as intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). Expand
Pregnancy after assisted ejaculation procedures in men with spinal cord injury.
TLDR
Together with intrauterine insemination or fertilization techniques used in vitro, the pregnancy rate per treatment cycle for SCI couples may approach that of natural procreation in healthy and fertile couples. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that some factors in the seminal plasma and/or disordered storage of spermatozoa inThe seminal vesicles are mainly responsible for the impaired semen profiles in men with chronic SCL. Expand
Infertility in men with spinal cord injury.
TLDR
Infertility is a significant and frustrating problem for many men after spinal cord injury; the future outlook is encouraging once improved technology for obtaining semen and various methods to assist reproduction, such as in vitro fertilization, are available. Expand
