Abstract

Objective To evaluate the effect of male age on the outcome of microdissection testicular sperm extraction (micro-TESE) and assisted reproductive technology. Design Clinical retrospective study. Setting Center for reproductive medicine at a tertiary university hospital. Patient(s) One thousand sixty-seven men with nonobstructive azoospermia. Intervention(s) Micro-TESE, with intracytoplasmic sperm injection when sperm found. Main Outcome Measure(s) Sperm retrieval and clinical pregnancy. Result(s) Sperm were successfully retrieved by micro-TESE in 605 men (56.6%) overall. Sperm retrieval rates (SRRs) were higher in men ≥50 years old than men
