Salvage Micro-Dissection Testicular Sperm Extraction; Outcome in men with Non Obstructive Azoospermia with previous failed sperm retrievals

Suks Minhas together with JS Kalsi, P Shah, Y Thum, A Muneer and DJ Ralph undertook a study to assess the outcome of m-TESE as a salvage treatment in men with non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA) in whom no sperm was previously found on single/multiple TESE or TESA.

The conclusion was that in men with NOA who have undergone previous attempts at sperm retrieval with negative results, a salvage micro-dissection sperm retrieval offers a significant chance of finding sperm even in Sertoli cell only syndrome. There does seem to be a correlation between pre-op Testosterone levels and the ability to successfully find sperm.
