Sallama Hamid Abbas*, Liqaa Rahi Jassim, Sabah Mahdi Hussein

ABSTRACT

Background: The management of patients with azoospermia involves percutaneous testicular sperm aspiration (PTSA) or testicular sperm extraction (TESE) according to the type of azoospermia combined with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).Our study have investigated the effect of the male age, the cause of azoospermia, the type of sperm used, on the ICSI cycle outcome in men with azoospermia. Objective: To assess the effect of: male age, the cause of azoospermia (obstructive or non-obstructive azoospermia), the type of sperm used (fresh or frozen-thawed) on the icsi cycle outcome in men with azoospermia. Methods: A retrospective analysis of 54 icsi cycles performed at Baghdad Specialized Fertility Center between 2012 and 2014, involving men with azoospermia to assess its effect on icsi cycle outcome. Results: Analysis of the results did not show any statistically significant differences in the fertilization ,embryo cleavage, clinical pregnancy, live births and miscarriage rates in relation to the male age , ,but statistically significant differences in relation to cause of azoospermia and type of sperm used. Conclusion: The findings of the present study suggest that the ICSI outcome in patients with azoospermia is not influenced by the age of the male, but affected by the type of azoospermia (better outcome for OA in comparison to NOA) but has better pregnancy and live birth rates with lower miscarriage rate when use fresh type compared to frozen-thawed sperms.

Keywords: Azoospermia, ICSI cycles, cycles outcome.
