For the zero sperm count (azoospermia) man, sperm can be retrieved in some cases from the portion above the testis called the epididymis for example in cases of congenital ab-sence of the vas deferens - a condition in which both the tubes transporting sperm to the exterior are absent from birth. The sperm thus retrieved by our expert andrologist,Can then be used for injecting the wife's oocytes by ICSI and thereby help give the couple their own biological offspring. Our centre maintains pregnancy rates per cycle for PESA - ICSI in the range of 34% and take home baby rates in the range of 27% per cycle.
For some patients with a zero sperm count (azoospermia), sperm can often be retrieved directly from the testes using a fine needle aspiration technique - immature sperm thus retrieved can then be matured in vitro and injected into the wife's oocytes by ICSI to achieve a viable pregnancy and livebirth. Patients can be confident about a 25 - 20% take home baby rate with this revolutionary method too.
