PESA - Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration

Empowering Your Fertility Journey with MomIvf

PESA:  PESA stands for Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration, which involves the insertion of a needle into man’s epididymis, for sperm retrieval. 

Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration (PESA) is a minimally invasive fertility procedure designed to retrieve sperm directly from the epididymis in men who have obstructive azoospermia, a condition where sperm is present in the testes but blocked from reaching the semen. During PESA, a fine needle is used to aspirate sperm from the epididymis, which can then be used for various assisted reproductive techniques such as intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) during in vitro fertilization (IVF) to help couples achieve their dream of starting a family. PESA offers a valuable option for men with obstructive azoospermia, allowing them to overcome the barrier to fertility and increase their chances of successful conception.

Similar Question people ask

What does PESA stand for?

PESA stands for Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration, which is a medical procedure used to retrieve sperm directly from the epididymis in men who have obstructive azoospermia.

Who is a candidate for PESA?

PESA is typically performed on men who have a blockage in their reproductive tract that prevents sperm from naturally exiting the body, leading to infertility. It may be used in cases where the vas deferens is blocked or absent.

How is PESA performed?

PESA is a minimally invasive procedure where a fine needle is inserted into the epididymis, a small, coiled tube located on the back of the testicle, to aspirate sperm for use in assisted reproductive techniques like ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection).

What are the success rates of PESA?

The success of PESA depends on various factors, including the underlying cause of male infertility. When used in conjunction with ICSI, PESA can offer a viable option for achieving pregnancy in cases of obstructive azoospermia.

Are there any potential risks or complications associated with PESA?

Like any medical procedure, PESA carries some risks, including infection, bleeding, or discomfort. However, when performed by an experienced healthcare provider, the risks are typically minimal, and the benefits in terms of fertility treatment can be significant for couples struggling with male infertility.
