When is micro Tesa done?

Infertility is a challenging journey that many couples are facing. While In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) has been a hope for many, some men struggle to provide enough viable sperm for this conventional procedure. This is where advanced techniques such as Micro-TESE, TESA, and PESA come into play. 

Micro-TESE, TESA, and PESA: Know the Difference 

Micro-TESE (Microscopic Testicular Sperm Extraction), TESA (Testicular Sperm Aspiration), and PESA (Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration) are procedures used to retrieve sperm for assisted reproductive techniques.  

Micro-TESE involves precise extraction under a microscope for men with severe sperm production issues. TESA collects sperm directly from the testicles, while PESA retrieves sperm from the epididymis through a needle. These methods offer solutions for male infertility. 

With the guidance of fertility specialists, individuals can explore these advanced options to navigate their infertility journey with confidence, resilience, and hope for a successful outcome. 

What is MicroTESE? 

MicroTESE- Microsurgical Testicular Sperm Extraction, is a highly specialized surgical procedure designed to retrieve sperm from the male testis. It is one of the most effective methods of sperm retrieval in cases of severe infertility. 

When is MicroTESE Recommended? 

MicroTESE is recommended for men diagnosed with Non-Obstructive Azoospermia (NOA). 

In cases of NOA, where the sperm count is zero or nearly undetectable, there may still be minute areas within the testis that produce viable sperm. MicroTESE offers a precise and advanced technique to access and retrieve these sperm-producing tubules. 

The MicroTESE Procedure 

MicroTESE is a surgical outpatient procedure performed under local or general anesthesia. 

A small incision is made in the middle of the testicle to gain access to the scrotal tissues. An operating microscope is then employed to identify and extract the enlarged seminiferous tubules containing sperm. The retrieved sperm is subsequently used for assisted fertility procedures or cryopreserved for future IVF or ICSI cycles. 

The Advantages of MicroTESE 

Studies have shown that MicroTESE yields sperm of better quality significantly improving the chances of successful fertilization. 

With success rates ranging from 40-60%, MicroTESE has become a game-changer in the field of male infertility treatment. 

Furthermore, MicroTESE offers several other advantages, including minimal postoperative pain, fast recovery, better opportunities for sperm cryopreservation, and fewer chronic changes to the scrotal tissues. 

For couples facing the challenge of male infertility, MicroTESE shines as a beacon of hope with its ability to retrieve viable sperm even in the most challenging cases.
