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…

Should sperm be cryopreserved after spinal cord injury?

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.

The incidence and etiology of sperm DNA fragmentation in the ejaculates of males with spinal cord injuries

Ejaculates of males with SCI have excessively elevated SDF when compared with normozoospermic donors, which is likely to be associated with coincident high levels of leucocytospermia and pro-oxidant capacity.

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.

Ejaculatory stimulation, quality of semen and reproductive aspects in spinal cord injured men

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.

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.
