TESA - ICSI
TESA is testicular sperm aspiration. When there are no sperms in semen (Azoospermia), then few sperms are aspirated from any of the testes with the help of a needle. ICSI can be done with these extracted sperms. 90% of the patients with Azoospermia can be benefited by TESA-ICSI. TESA is done under local anaesthesia without any discomfort and is an OPD procedure.
