Azoospermia is the technical term for the complete absence of seminal ripening cells and sperm cells in the ejaculate and is generally classified as obstrusive or secretory. In obstructive azoospermia, sperm can not pass from the testis into the urethra and then into the seminal ducts. However, the sperm are still formed in the testicles (spermatogenesis).
There are multiple causes of this condition, including patients with vas deferens agenesis, vasectomized patients, or patients with clogged urethral or seminal ducts that occur after surgery. There are special situations where there is no real cause, but a problem in obtaining the ejaculate, e.g. in patients with spinal cord injuries, diabetes, patients taking certain medications, or in the case of retrograde ejaculation, seminal fluid entering the bladder instead of the urethra. All these cases are treated with a good prognosis, a simple surgical procedure called TESE (Testicular sperm extraction) allows the collection of sperm taken from the testicular tissue.
In non-obstructive azoospermia spermatogenesis is disturbed, so that no sperm are formed. Chromosomal aberrations may occur, e.g. the Klinefelter syndrome (cariotype 47XXY) or microdeletion of the Y chromosome, which is related to the loss of genetic information in spermatogenesis. Other causes include bilateral cryptorchidism (incomplete descent of the scrotum in the scrotum), testicular torsion, trauma, infection (e.g., mumps in puberty), radio-chemotherapy treatments. The prognosis for this type of azoospermia is uncertain and the likelihood of finding the cause depends on many factors. There are several parameters by which the presence of sperm can be observed, such as in serum FSH, the size of the testes by a karyotype, although there is no conclusive medical evidence for this. In many cases a testicular biopsy of both testes is advised. The chances to get sperm in this way are about 50%. Patients should be aware of this situation and they should also consider alternative treatment options, such as using donor sperm or vitrifying egg cells, to gain more time for decision-making. Another option is to perform a testicular biopsy before stimulation of the ovaries to freeze the material obtained (if material was found).
By TESE or testicular biopsy, a high number of sperm should be obtained to fertilize them in the obtained oocytes by microinjection. The material obtained from the testes is then examined microscopically in the IVF laboratory. The fertilization rate is comparable to the sperm obtained from the ejaculate.
The combination of ICSI with the surgical techniques to gain sperm offers a high degree of success to help patients with azoospermia.
