Re: Predictive Factors for Sperm Recovery after Varicocelectomy in Men with Nonobstructive Azoospermia

Currently there are few options beyond surgical sperm retrieval to help patients with nonobstructive azoospermia (NOA) achieve pregnancy. In the clinic setting when we encounter a patient with NOA and varicocele, we ask ourselves, would this patient benefit from a varicocele repair (VR)? Also, what are the chances that this patient will have sperm in the ejaculate? In a meta-analysis by Weedin et al men with hypospermatogenesis on testis biopsy done at varicocele repair had the best chances of having sperm in the ejaculate, compared to those with Sertoli cell only syndrome (SCO) or maturation arrest (MA).
