Spermatozoa recovered from testicular biopsies can be used through intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) to achieve a pregnancy. To assess the likelihood of successful testicular sperm extraction (TESE) in men suffering from severe oligo- or azoospermia, bilateral biopsy specimens were obtained. Following semi-thin sectioning, the morphology of testicular samples was graded according to a modified Johnsen score. TESE was performed in parallel to this histological examination. The number of… CONTINUE READING
