Male Infertility Treatments
Male infertility is rising these days and varying from low sperm counts to poor motility or morphology, some men may even have a condition called Azoospermia. In this condition, sperm are not present in the semen sample. This can be due to problems with sperm production or due to obstruction to the flow of semen. This may be due to reproductive tract obstruction that can arise due to infection, trauma, injury, or surgery. In about 2% of men, Azoospermia can also be due to congenital anomalies.
With the grace of technological advancements, men can now father their child despite having nil sperms.
These advanced techniques include:
PESA stands for Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration. This technique does not require a surgical incision. For this process, a small needle is passed directly in the head of the epididymis through the scrotal skin, and fluid is aspirated. The sperm cells are then retrieved from the fluid and prepared for ICSI.
MESA stands for Microsurgical Epididymal Sperm Aspiration. This procedure is used in conditions like obstructive azoospermia and involves dissection of the epididymis under an operating microscope and incision of a single tubule. The fluid that spills from the epididymal tubule pools in the epididymal bed. The fluid that is pooled is aspirated.
TESA stands for testicular sperm aspiration. It is performed by inserting a needle in the testis and aspirating fluid and tissue with negative pressure. The aspirated tissue is processed in a lab and sperm cells are extracted for ICSI.
Micro-TESE is a procedure performed for those men who have a problem with their sperm production and are azoospermic. This procedure involves an operation that is performed by making a small incision in the scrotum through which both testicles can be seen. Sperm is then collected from one or both testicles. The operation is done with general anaesthesia under an operating microscope. The success rate of sperm retrieval for men undergoing micro-TESE is up to 63%.
