Use of Testicular Sperm in the Nonazoospermic Male

Cori Tanrikut, MD

Thursday, March 26
8:45 AM – 9:30 AM

 0.75 CME

Session Description:

For those couples who have failed attempts at in vitro fertilization (IVF) with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), we seek to change treatment approaches and management in order to achieve an optimal outcome with repeat cycle attempts. This presentation will review the available literature and discuss potential consideration of using testicular sperm in nonazoospermic couples.

Session Objectives:

  1. Explain why testicular sperm has been considered as potential management approach in those couples with prior IVF-ICSI failures.
  2. Understand the published data regarding outcomes of testicular versus ejaculated sperm in nonazoospermic couples undergoing IVF-ICSI.
