What is Micro TESE?

Microscopic Testicular Sperm Extraction (Micro TESE) is an advanced surgical procedure meticulously designed to retrieve sperm directly from the testicles of men facing severe male infertility challenges. Unlike traditional TESE, Micro TESE employs high-powered microscopes to pinpoint and extract sperm with the highest probability of fertilisation.

Why Choose Micro TESE?

  • Increased Sperm Retrieval Rates: The use of high-powered magnification enables the identification of areas within the testicles with a higher concentration of viable sperm, improving the chances of finding suitable sperm for assisted reproductive techniques.
  • Precise Sperm Localization: Micro TESE utilises microsurgical techniques and advanced magnification to identify seminiferous tubules within the testicles that may contain sperm. This precision allows for targeted sampling and reduces unnecessary tissue damage.
  • Higher Sperm Quality: Micro TESE helps select sperm with better quality, as the procedure targets areas within the testicles where sperm production may still be occurring.
  • Optimal Sperm for Assisted Reproduction: By retrieving sperm directly from the testicles using micro TESE, viable sperm can be used with assisted reproductive techniques such as intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). This allows for the fertilisation of eggs and the creation of embryos.

The Micro TESE Procedure

  1. Preparation and Anesthesia: Prior to the micro TESE procedure, the patient is typically administered anaesthesia to ensure comfort during the surgery. The surgical area is cleaned and sterilised.
  2. Microdissection and Sperm Retrieval: A small incision is made in the scrotum, and the testicles are exposed. Using a high-powered operating microscope, the surgeon identifies and locates areas within the testicles likely to contain viable sperm.
  3. Sperm Evaluation and Processing: The retrieved tissue samples are processed in the laboratory to extract and isolate viable sperm. Sperm quality and quantity are assessed.
  4. Embryo Creation and Transfer: Once the sperm have been successfully retrieved, they can be used for fertilisation through intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). The resulting embryos are cultured in the laboratory and monitored for development. The highest-quality embryos are selected for transfer into the woman’s uterus.
  5. Post-Procedure Care: After the micro TESE procedure, the patient may experience mild discomfort or swelling, which can be managed with pain medication and rest. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor progress.
