MESA (Micro-Epididymal Sperm Aspiration) is an open surgical sperm retrieval technique to treat male infertility problems such as Azoospermia (total absence of sperm in ejaculation) and reproductive tract blockage. Reproductive tract can be blocked due to various genital surgeries including vasectomy.
Under this procedure, operating microscopy is used and sperm retrieval is done directly from the epididymis (reproductive tube connecting the testicles to the sperm carrying vessels) organ in the male genitalia.
MESA is normally used to assist pregnancy for the childless couples through Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) such as IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization) and sometimes IUI also. It involves s.a surgery to cut open the scrotum and retrieve the sperm. This MESA procedure causes pain for some days.Get a free Quote
