PURPOSE We assessed fertilization, pregnancy and miscarriage rates in patients with obstructive and nonobstructive azoospermia who underwent intracytoplasmic sperm injection. MATERIALS AND METHODS From June 1996 to March 2000, 166 consecutive patients (198 intracytoplasmic sperm injection cycles) with azoospermia were studied. Of these 198 cycles 68 were performed due to nonobstructive azoospermia using testicular spermatozoa and 130 were performed due to obstructive azoospermia using… CONTINUE READING
