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

CONCLUSIONS: Small bowel obstruction resulting from LAGB tubing is an uncommon complication which was reported in few cases. Although bariatric surgery currently represents the best treatment option for morbid obesity and its related- diseases, peri- and post-operative complications have always to be taken into account.

We report a patient with glucagonoma differentiation into a malignant form after 13 years. A 63-year-old asymptomatic man was evaluated for an enhancing lesion at the distal pancreas. Physical examination was normal. Laboratory values were normal except for an elevated serum glucagon level (206 pg/mL, Ref. 50 –150). Somatostatin and other tumor markers were normal. A PET scan confirmed abnormal uptake at the distal pancreas, correlating with a CT scan. The patient underwent laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy with resection of a 2.6-cm mass which predominantly expressed glucagon. Serum glucagon levels n ormalized imme...

ORGANOPHOSPHATES IN MECONIUM OF NEWBORN BABIES WHOSE MOTHERS RESIDED IN AGRICULTURAL AREAS OF THAILAND. Southeast Asian J Trop Med Public Health. 2020 Mar 02;51(1):77-87 Authors: Onchoi C, Kongtip P, Nankongnab N, Chantanakul S, Sujirarat D, Woskie S Abstract Organophosphates (OPs) are widely used for pest and weed control in many countries including Thailand. In addition to causing environmental pollution, OPs affect human health by overstimulating neurotoxicants, and OP exposure during pregnancy can lead to adverse health effects of mothers and their fetuses. Using gas chromatography-mass spectrometr...

Non‑invasive monitoring of paclitaxel and lenvatinib efficacy against anaplastic thyroid cancer in orthotopic SCID mouse models using small‑animal FDG‑PET/CT. Oncol Rep. 2020 Aug 07;: Authors: Aoyama M, Takizawa H, Otani T, Inoue S, Kawakita N, Tsuboi M, Bando Y, Uehara H, Kondo K, Tangoku A Abstract Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC) is a rare type of thyroid carcinoma with a poor prognosis. Thus, suitable preclinical tumor models are required for the development of new ATC therapies. In the present study, orthotopic tumor xenograft models were established using ATC cell lines and SCID mice, and...

MRI tracing of ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticle‑labeled endothelial progenitor cells for repairing atherosclerotic vessels in rabbits. Mol Med Rep. 2020 Aug 13;: Authors: Wei H, Tan T, Cheng L, Liu J, Song H, Li L, Zhang K Abstract Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) have been discovered to be relevant to the prognosis of cardiovascular diseases. Previous research has demonstrated that EPCs serve vital roles in the occurrence and development of atherosclerosis. Significant improvements have been made in MRI technology and in the experimental use of EPCs for therapeutic angiogenesi...

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.
