The Azoospermia or the lack of sperm in seminal fluid is the most severe form of male infertility.
The Testicular biopsy makes it possible to collect spermatozoa, next the embryologist will determine whether there is a sufficient number of sperm for treatment or cryopreservation for future use. Sperm can usually be easily obtained from infertile men with obstructive azoospermia for intracytoplasmic injection ICSI/PICSI
It is a routinely carried out procedure performed under mild sedation, by urologists, specialists in the problems of male reproduction system. In addition to being a very good diagnostic tool, testicular biopsy has the advantage of allowing the sperm collection that probably could not have been done otherwise.
Other advanced techniques provided in our clinic include
- Testicular sperm aspiration (TESA)
- The Micro surgical Testicular Sperm Extraction (micro-TESE) developed to detect sperm in the testicles of men who have poor sperm production.
- The microsurgical epididymal sperm aspiration (MESA)
Testicular biopsy is now a common treatment in the management of infertility.
