Abstract

In this study (May 1 until August 31, 1994) a total of 15 azoospermic patients suffering from testicular failure were treated with a combination of testicular sperm extraction (TESE) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). Spermatozoa were available for ICSI in 13 of the patients. Out of 182 metaphase II injected oocytes, twopronuclear fertilization was observed in 87 (47.80%); 57 embryos (65.51%) were obtained for either transfer or cryopreservation. Three ongoing pregnancies out of 12 replacements (25%) were established, including one singleton, one twin and one triplet gestation. The ongoing implantation rate was 18% (six fetal hearts out of 32 embryos replaced).
