OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of testicular sperm aspiration on the clinical outcomes of IVF patients with temporary ejaculation failure (TEF) on the day of oocyte retrieval.
DESIGN: A case-control study.
SETTING: University-affiliated IVF center.
PATIENT(S): One hundred eight infertile couples encountering TEF on the day of oocyte retrieval.
INTERVENTION(S): Testicular sperm aspiration and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (TESA-ICSI) were employed to help the TEF couples to complete their IVF treatments. A group of obstructive azoospermia (OA) patients was chosen as a control group to evaluate the efficiency and safety of this intervention.
MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Fertilization rates, transferable embryo rates, and clinical pregnancy rates (PRs).
RESULT(S): Through the TESA-ICSI, TEF couples achieved a 38.83% (40/103) clinical PR per IVF cycle. Compared with the OA group, the TEF group showed a comparable fertilization rate (66.43% vs. 65.25%), transferable embryo rate (60.76% vs. 60.85%), and PR (51.61% vs. 50.00%) in thawed ET cycles but a relatively low PR (25.49% vs. 44.64%) in fresh ET cycles.
CONCLUSION(S): TESA-ICSI is a relatively efficient and safe way to help the patients encountering TEF.
