OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the predictors of successful sperm retrieval using percutaneous epididymal sperm aspiration (PESA) in men with obstructive azoospermia (OA). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data were collected retrospectively from 255 patients with OA who underwent PESA between March 2007 and September 2012. Sperm retrieval outcomes were reported as motile sperm (>1% motile), rare motile sperm (≤1% motile), nonmotile sperm, and no sperm found. Variables included in our analysis were patient ...

Telomeres, the protective structures at the outmost ends of chromosomes, shorten in all somatic cells with each cell-division and by cumulative oxidative damage. To counteract that these shortened telomeres are passed on to offspring, the telomeres are elongated by the enzyme, telomerase, during human spermatogenesis. A few groups have tried to elucidate this process by measuring telomerase activity in the various cell-types during spermatogenesis, but until now, no one has ever measured ... [Abstract] [Full-text]

In vivo serial sampling of epididymal sperm in mice. Lab Anim, 47(3): 168-74.
This study was undertaken to refine the techniques of in vivo collection of sperm in the mouse. The principal objective was to offer a viable, safe and reliable method for serial collection of in vivo epididimary sperm through the direct puncture of the epididymis. Six C57Bl/6J males were subjected to the whole experiment. First we obtain a sperm sample of the right epididymis, and perform a vasectomy on the left side. This sample was used in an in vitro fertilization (IVF) experiment while ... [Abstract] [Full-text]

Nonscalpel vasectomy as family planning method: a battle yet to be conquered. ISRN Urol, 2013: 752174.
Though nonscalpel vasectomy (NSV) technique was introduced in India in 1992 to increase male participation in family planning, it has failed to get adequate momentum and to achieve its goal. We conducted a cross-sectional questionnaire-based survey to get insight into apathy of men towards NSV. The study included 428 respondents. Most of the respondents (97.4%) were aware of NSV as a method for permanent male sterilization. The majority of them (97.2%) knew that NSV is done without any charge ... [Abstract] [Full-text]
