The aim of this study was to analyze pathophysiological changes after testicular sperm aspiration (TESA) and microsurgical epididymal sperm aspiration (MESA) procedures. Twenty four mature male Wistar albino rats with a proven breeding history, weighing approximately 200–250 gm were used for the study. Animals were randomly divided into four groups (n = 6), i.e., control, sham-control, unilateral TESA, and MESA. Using a 22G needle, the aspiration procedures were done in testis or caudal… Expand
Microsurgical and Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration for Sperm Collection from Live Mice.
TLDR
Two techniques for collecting sperm from anesthetized male mice without decreasing subsequent fertility are recommended as simple and effective methods for recovering high-quality epididymal mouse sperm without having to euthanize fertile male mice. Expand
Advances in sperm retrieval techniques in azoospermic men: A systematic review
TLDR
Evaluating various methods of operative sperm retrieval in men with non-obstructive azoospermia and to determine the optimal surgical approach in terms of effectiveness, morbidity, and complications found micro-TESE to be the most efficient method for retrieving sperm. Expand

Sperm retrieval techniques for assisted reproduction.
TLDR
The surgical procedures for retrieving spermatozoa from both the epididymis and the testicle are reviewed and technical details of the commonly used methods are provided, along with an overview of the laboratory techniques routinely used to process surgically-retrieved sperm. Expand
Antisperm autoantibody response after unilateral vas deferens ligation in rats: when does it develop?
TLDR
Data seem to indicate that in this model, antisperm antibody production is not evident until 15-30 days after unilateral injury to the vas deferens occurs, and the development of these antibodies precedes any demonstrable histologic damage to the testicle. Expand
Histologic effects of testicular sperm extraction on the testicle in men with nonobstructive azoospermia.
TLDR
These findings support the clinical observation that TESE causes a decrease in seminiferous tubular volume within the testicular parenchyma adjacent to the biopsy site, and reflects a potentially adverse local effect of TESE on the testis that may have important clinical consequences for men with nonobstructive azoospermia.

The use of epididymal and testicular spermatozoa for intracytoplasmic sperm injection: the genetic implications for male infertility.
TLDR
The results and rationale of using testicular and epididymal spermatozoa with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) for severe cases of male infertility are reviewed and it is now clear that even with non-obstructive azoospermia, e.g. Sertoli-cell only, or maturation arrest, there are usually some small foci of spermatogenesis which allow TESE with ICSI to be carried out.

Microsurgical epididymal sperm aspiration: aspirate analysis and straws available after cryopreservation in patients with non-reconstructable obstructive azoospermia. MESA/TESE Group Giessen.
TLDR
Analysis of the amount and quality of aspirate fluid obtained by means of MESA and the quality of the vials after thawing show that enough spermatozoa are available for various ICSI cycles following a single MESA procedure in men with non-reconstructable obstructive azoospermia. Expand
Percutaneous epididymal sperm aspiration (PESA) in men with obstructive azoospermia.
TLDR
PESA is an efficient and simple method of retrieving spermatozoa, allowing repeated procedures and also the possibility of cryopreservation of remaining material for future use in intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). Expand
High fertilization and pregnancy rate after intracytoplasmic sperm injection with spermatozoa obtained from testicle biopsy.
TLDR
It appears that all cases of obstructive azoospermia can now be successfully treated and the few barely motile spermatozoa thus obtained can be used for ICSI. Expand
Physiological consequences of testicular sperm extraction.
TLDR
Repeat TESE procedures were far more likely to retrieve spermatozoa if the second TESE attempt was performed >6 months after the initial TESE procedure, relative to those performed within 6 months (25%). Expand

TLDR
Several percutaneous and open surgical procedures have been described to retrieve sperm in men with azoospermia and there will be no sperm in the epididymis and testicular sperm retrieval is required. Expand
