Microsurgical testicular sperm extraction (mTESE), combined with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) represents a chance for azoospermic men with Klinefelter's syndrome (KS) to father children. The objective of this study was to identify predictive factors for the success of mTESE from adolescents and adults with KS. The clinical data of 50 late pubertal adolescents (13-19 years) and 85 adult patients (20-61 years) with non-mosaic KS, who underwent mTESE, were analysed with respect to factors, potentially predictive of active spermatogenesis; specifically a history of cryptorchidism, age, testicular volumes, serum levels of LH, FSH, testosterone (T) and estradiol at the time of surgery...

BACKGROUND: Most individuals with Klinefelter's syndrome (KS) are azoospermic but residual foci of spermatogenesis have been observed in some patients. However, no consistent predictive factors for testicular sperm extraction success have been established and mosaicism could be a factor to investigate. In this study, we have assessed the degree of mosaicism in somatic and germinal tissues in KS, the meiotic competence of 47,XXY germ cells and the aneuploidy rate of post-reductional cells...

PURPOSE: We examined preoperative factors that could predict successful microdissection testicular sperm extraction in men with azoospermia and nonmosaic Klinefelter's syndrome. We also analyzed the influence of preoperative hormonal therapy on the sperm retrieval rate. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 91 microdissection testicular sperm extraction attempts were done in 68 men with nonmosaic Klinefelter's syndrome. Men with serum testosterone less than 300 ng/dl received medical therapy with aromatase inhibitors, clomiphene or human chorionic gonadotropin before microdissection testicular sperm extraction...

The study was performed to determine factors affecting successful sperm retrieval by testicular sperm extraction in patients with nonmosaic Klinefelter's syndrome (KS). From May 2001 to February 2007, 27 azoospermic patients were diagnosed as having nonmosaic KS. All patients underwent sperm testicular extraction. Patient's age, testicular volume, serum follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and inhibin B were assessed as predictive factors for successful sperm recovery. Of the 27 Klinefelter's patients examined, eight (29...

Modern techniques of testicular sperm extraction (TESE) make it possible for an infertile man to father a child. The operations are standardized to a large extent and the underlying morphological alterations of spermatogenesis also appear to be sufficiently known. Current research is focused on prognostic factors for the testicular material that determine the sperm retrieval rate and success rates after in vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection (IVF-ICSI).TESE and microTESE are accepted standard operations for testicular sperm retrieval for IVF/ICSI...

Our laboratory has previously reported significantly low levels of protamine (PRM) gene expression in infertile men. This drop was correlated with a low pregnancy rate, suggesting that PRMs may be useful as predictive factors for the outcome of testicular sperm extraction and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (TESE-ICSI) in azoospermic men. Transition nuclear proteins (TPs) are expressed earlier in spermatogenesis than protamines and are required for normal sperm development. In the present study, we examined the expression of the transition nuclear protein 1 gene (TNP1) in azoospermia and its relationship with TESE-ICSI outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Microdissection testicular sperm extraction (TESE) has provided new hope for successful sperm retrieval to patients with Sertoli cell-only syndrome (SCO). We determined expression of the inhibin alpha subunit, glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) and stem cell factor (SCF) in Sertoli cells obtained from patients with SCO immunohistochemically and compared expression rates with rates of microdissection TESE sperm retrieval. METHODS: Testicular biopsy specimens were obtained from 52 men with non-obstructive azoospermia who underwent microdissection TESE and were diagnosed with SCO by histological analysis...

PURPOSE: Microsurgical techniques in testicular sperm extraction can improve sperm retrieval in patients with nonobstructive azoospermia (NOA). However, spermatozoa retrieval rates have still been reported to be around 50% for patients with NOA. Thus, a reliable prediction method for successful outcome is needed to avoid unnecessary surgery. In this retrospective study we determined the diagnostic and predictive values of noninvasive parameters used in the treatment of patients with NOA...
