Microdissection testicular sperm extraction in Finland – results of the first 100 patients
Abstract IntroductionTesticular microdissection sperm extraction (MD‐TESE) combined with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) has made biological fatherhood possible for many men with the most severe form of male infertility, non‐obstructive azoospermia. MD‐TESE was introduced in Turku in 2008, and by 2015, 100 Finnish men with non‐obstructive azoospermia have been operated on. Material and methodsThe average age of the men was 33 years at the time of surgery. Forty‐eight had a needle biopsy previously and 56% had a testicular size

Authors: Taylor CR, Dominguez JE, Habib AS Abstract Obesity is a significant global health problem. It results in a higher incidence of complications for pregnant women and their neonates. Cesarean deliveries are more common in obese parturients as well. The increased burden of comorbidities seen in this population, such as obstructive sleep apnea, necessitates antepartum anesthetic consultation. These patients pose unique challenges for the practicing anesthesiologist and may benefit from optimization prior to delivery. Complications from anesthesia and overall morbidity and mortality are higher in this population...
In this study, we used the homologous model technique and principal component analysis to determine gender difference from morphology of the mandible. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Forty-five patients (23 males and 22 females) of CT imaging for tooth extraction from January 2018 to March 2019 at Department of oral surgery, Osaka Medical College. The mean age was 43.1 ± 14.6. Patients with less than 14 remaining teeth were excluded because the number of remaining teeth may affect the shape of the mandible. 3D images were constructed, and 20 landmarks plotting on the 3D model surfaces. We generated template models of the...
Conclusion: The development of LRSS pneumatization affects the removal rate of CS tumors in PAs. Preoperative analysis of LRSS development should be considered when planning EES against PA with CS invasion. PMID: 31819816 [PubMed]

CONCLUSIONSHigh pregnancy rates among girls with histories of CSE suggest the importance of applying a reproductive justice approach to deliver reproductive education, family planning services, pre-natal care, and parenting support to girls impacted by CSE.
In conclusion, an epidermal component in primary cutaneous clear cell sarcomas, or cutaneous metastasis of the tumor, is exceptional and represents a potential diagnostic pitfall. Careful attention to the salient morphologic features in the dermal component of the tumor, as well as confirmation of EWSR1 gene rearrangement by fluorescence in situ hybridization or reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction, is necessary for correct recognition of the tumor and to avoid erroneous diagnosis of a benign or malignant melanocytic proliferation.
ConclusionsOur SRR is comparable with international results, and cumulative live birth rate similar to other ICSI indications in Finland. Physicians and specialists need to be made aware of new treatment options to enable biological fatherhood for men with non‐obstructive azoospermia.This article is protected by copyright.
