Treatments for Male Infertility
Testicular mapping is a minimally invasive procedure during which a fine needle is placed in different areas of the testes to obtain small samples of testicular fluid. The aspirate is fixed on a slide and checked for sperm following the procedure. If sperm is found, a future sperm retrieval will be scheduled during an IVF-ICSI cycle.
The sperm retrieval will be carried out from the sites where sperm was found during the original mapping.
Advanced testicular mapping
Advanced testicular mapping is a technique during which a fine needle is placed in different areas of the testes, aspirating small samples of testicular fluid that is immediately analyzed for viable sperm. If viable sperm is found, it is frozen and used in a future IVF-ICSI cycle.
