Success Rate of Pregnancy after PESA/TESE and ICSI in Jakarta


Male infertility is a major problem in infertility. It can be caused by obstructive azoospermia. Sperm retrieval surgery (SRS) is the best approach to gain the sperm used Intra Cystoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI). However, the success rate of pregnancy after SRS and ICSI in Cipto Mangunkusumo National Hospital has not yet been defined. There were 123 patients had SRS with most of them performed PESA. Sperm were found in more than 77% of patients with most of them directly performed ICSI. Only 40 patients could be contacted with average age of husband, wife, and duration of marriage were 40.3 + 8.2, 33.2 + 5.1, 7.6 + 4.6 years old respectively. Most of patients were suffered from primary infertility. The success rate of pregnancy is 72.5%, with success rate of birth is 30.0%. There are 2 patients waiting for delivery date. Sperm retrieval surgery such as PESA/TESE is the best approach to gain sperm in obstructive azoospermia patient. The success rate of pregnancy after PESA/TESE and ICSI is high with almost half of patients have succeed in giving birth.
