Smartphone-based home screening tests for male infertility.
Authors: Vij SC, Panner Selvam MK, Agarwal A Abstract Diagnostic testing for male infertility has traditionally been limited to andrology labs. The advent of home-based semen testing has the potential to allow patients to perform testing in the comfort of their home and screen those who need a formal evaluation. An extensive review of the literature was performed. There are several FDA-approved devices for home semen testing. The mechanism of the test and the results provided differ by test. The existing tests are limited in their diagnostic capabilities but may fill a niche for men who do not have access to androl...

Oxidation reduction potential: a new biomarker of male infertility.
Authors: Martins AD, Agarwal A Abstract Oxidative stress is considered a major etiology for male infertility, more specifically idiopathic infertility. The causes of seminal oxidative stress can be intrinsic, such as varicocele or due to the presence of active leukocytes and immature germ cells. Reported external causes are smoking, alcohol or exposure to environmental toxins. Traditional methods to determine the seminal oxidative stress do not evaluate this status directly, but rather measure its components or intermediate products indirectly, instead. The major disadvantages of the traditional methods are related...

Clinical utility of sperm DNA damage in male infertility.
Authors: Majzoub A, Agarwal A, Esteves SC Abstract Sperm DNA fragmentation (SDF) is an advanced test of sperm function that is utilized during male fertility evaluation. Recently, a guideline was published highlighting the detrimental impact of SDF on sperm function identifying practice-based clinical indications for SDF testing. This review illustrates the commonly utilized SDF measurement techniques and explores the current evidence behind their utility in clinical practice. Patients diagnosed with varicocele, unexplained infertility, recurrent pregnancy loss, recurrent failure of assisted reproductive techniques...

Authors: Cho CL, Esteves SC, Agarwal A Abstract Varicoceles exert deleterious effect on testicular function. The condition has been associated with male infertility, testicular hypotrophy and pain. These comprises the common indications for varicocele repair currently. Significant improvement in semen parameters and pregnancy outcomes had been suggested by reports decades ago. However, selection of the best candidates remains an issue since not all patients respond positively to treatment. Consensus has been reached in recent decade after the publication of a series of meta-analyses. Significant improvement in preg...

Testicular sperm for intracytoplasmic sperm injection in non-azoospermic men: a paradigm shift.
Authors: Lopes LS, Esteves SC Abstract In recent years, growing evidence has challenged the notion that sperm quantity and quality are not essential for the success of assisted reproductive technology. DNA fragmentation assessments on ejaculated and testicular sperm harvested from non-azoospermic infertile men have reported a remarkable decrease in DNA damage in spermatozoa directly retrieved from the seminiferous tubules. Moreover, emerging evidence using molecular genetic techniques indicates that aneuploidy rates are lower in testicular sperm than in ejaculated counterparts. The use of testicular sperm from non-...

A quality management approach to controlled ovarian stimulation in assisted reproductive technology: the "Fischer protocol".
CONCLUSIONS: An optimal distribution of both clinical and laboratory workload was achieved by using the Fischer protocol. Moreover, oocyte pick-ups were eliminated on weekends and holidays without jeopardizing the quality of care provided to couples. The Fischer protocol is consistent with the quality management philosophy and focusses on improving the quality of care by increasing safety, efficacy, and patient-centeredness without harming treatment effectiveness.
