Abstract

BACKGROUND: The safety of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) with testicular sperm in azoospermic men has been a concern. We evaluated ICSI outcomes, including neonatal outcomes, in children born using testicular sperm or donor sperm.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: Ninety-nine males with nonobstructive azoospermia (NOA) who underwent microdissection testicular sperm extraction (micro-TESE) and 126 males with obstructive azoospermia (OA) were included in this study. Sixty-one patients with NOA used donor sperm for ICSI on the day of oocyte retrieval when no spermatozoa were identified by micro-TESE on the day before oocyte retrieval. ICSI outcomes were compared among OA, donor, and NOA groups.

RESULTS: There was no statistical difference in terms of female partner characteristics among OA, donor, and NOA groups. The normal fertilization rate (P=0.005), high quality embryo rate (P=0.014), implantation rate (P<0.001), clinical pregnancy rate (P=0.015), live birth rate (P=0.043) were significant lower in the NOA group, compared with the donor sperm group. The normal fertilization rate was significant lower in the NOA group than the OA group (P<0.001), but the live birth rate was not significantly lower (P=0.058). The high-quality embryo rate (P=0.014) and implantation rate (P=0.009) were lower in the OA group than the donor group. No differences between groups were observed in our study regarding neonatal parameters of the infants born.

CONCLUSIONS: The fertilization and pregnancy outcomes were negatively affected by using testicular sperm from males with NOA. Once a live birth was achieved, there was no difference in neonatal outcomes.
