Can MACS be performed with sperm obtained through testicular biopsy?

By Rebeca Reus.
Last Update: 08/28/2018

No, because the sperm obtained by this technique are scarce. Therefore, when they are passed through the columns of adnexin V, it is very likely that there will not be enough to carry out the treatment.
