So far medicine has had nothing to offer the azoospermic man with testicular failure or irreversible obstruction in the way of treatment. His only treatment choices were: adoption, or donor insemination. However, now it is possible to extract sperm from the testis of these patients, and inject them into their wife's eggs. This is called TESE with ICSI which stands for Testicular Sperm Extraction with Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection. (A more colourful name for this technique however would be TSEICSI - pronounced as "sexy"!) This paper describes the laboratory aspects of how ICSI is performed in the IVF laboratory; and our results with using TESE with ICSI in treating azoospermic men.
