Abstract

Objectives. To analyze the outcome of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) cycles in infertile couples in whom the main diagnosis of infertility was azoospermia of obstructive and nonobstructive origin. Methods. Eighty-three consecutive ICSI cycles were carried out with retrieved testicular or epididymal spermatozoa, 60 cycles in 32 patients with obstructive azoospermia and 23 cycles in 12 patients with nonobstructive azoospermia. Fifty-four testicular biopsies (testicular sperm extraction) and 18 epididymal aspirations (microepididymal sperm aspiration) were performed. Results. Motile spermatozoa were recovered in 65 cycles (90.3%). In another 3 (4.2%), nonmotile spermatozoa were retrieved. In 4 patients (5.5%), sperm could not be recovered. In 11 cycles, frozen sperm from a previous procedure were used. A significantly lower fertilization rate (64% versus 73%, P = 0.02), clinical pregnancy rate (13% versus 47%, P
