Does a testicular biopsy always yield spermatozoa?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez.
Last Update: 11/04/2021

No. The probability of finding spermatozoa with a testicular biopsy is high, but it is not 100%. The cause of the absence of sperm in the ejaculate is important to predict the probability of success of the technique.
