Answer by whole_feelings@yahoo
Once patients with nonobstructive azoospermia were often unable to be treated with success. Since the introduction of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), treatment of most men with azoospermia can now be considered. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a technique performed as part of an IVF cycle that has revolutionized the treatment of severe male factor infertility. ICSI involves the injection of a single sperm into each oocyte, in vitro, during an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle. ICSI essentially bypasses all natural barriers to fertilization, such as sperm interaction with the zona pellucida and sperm-egg fusion. Subsequent pregnancy rates are then primarily dependent on female factors, emphasizing the tremendous value of ICSI in overriding specific sperm defects that heretofore may have limited treatment of severe male factor infertility.

The primary treatment option for infertile men with obstructive azoospermia was the reconstruction of the male seminal tract when the causes of obstruction were reconstructable. For unreconstructable causes, such as congenital absence of the vas deferens, the primary treatment option involved implantation of an alloplastic artificial spermatocele for subsequent percutaneous retrieval of sperm. Retrieved sperm was then used for intrauterine insemination. The introduction of in vitro fertilization (IVF), performed together with microsurgical epididymal sperm aspiration (MESA), provided new frontiers for the treatment of unreconstructable obstructive azoospermic infertility in men.
