Male Infertility

Assessing spermatozoal small ribonucleic acids and their relationship to blastocyst development in idiopathic infertile males.

Clinical testing strategies for diagnosing male factor infertility are limited. A deeper analysis of spermatozoa-derived factors could potentially diagnose some cases of 'unexplained infertility'. Spermatozoa carry a rich and dynamic profile of small RNAs, which have demonstrated potential developmental importance and association with fertility status.

Follicle stimulating hormone effectiveness in male idiopathic infertility: what happens in daily practice?

To assess the effectiveness of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) administration in male idiopathic infertility in a clinical setting.

A retrospective real-world study was carried out, including all consecutive FSH-treated infertile men attending the Andrology Unit of Modena (Italy) from June 2015 to May 2022.

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Infection and Its Impact on Male Infertility.

Nowadays, the striking numbers of infertile couples that turn to assisted reproductive technologies (ART) drive the research toward a more comprehensive understanding of the underlying causes. Male factors contribute to the inability to conceive in half of the cases, and it has been suggested that sexually transmitted infections could have a role in the onset of spermatozoa impairments.

Identification of potential key genes related to idiopathic male infertility using RNA-sequencing data: an in-silico approach.

Among reproductive health problems, idiopathic infertility affects married couples. The current diagnosis of male infertility focuses on the concentration, motility, and morphology of sperm in the ejaculate.

Clinically Meaningful Improvements in Sperm DNA Fragmentation Severity in Infertile Men Treated with Superoxide Dismutase Supplementation: A Single-Center Experience.

Antioxidants are commonly used for the treatment of idiopathic male infertility. Previous studies have shown that antioxidants are able to improve sperm quality, but little is known about their impact on sperm DNA fragmentation (SDF).

The broad reach and inaccuracy of men's health information on social media: analysis of TikTok and Instagram.

Social media (SoMe) offers great potential to expand access to health information, but a significant proportion of users consume its content instead of consulting a physician. We sought to quantify the volume and characterize the accuracy of men's health-related content on TikTok and Instagram.

Reproductive axis ageing and fertility in men.

Compared to women, increasing male age is not accompanied by such marked changes in reproductive function but changes certainly do happen. These include alterations to the hypothalamo-pituitary-testicular axis, with resultant implications for testosterone production and bioavailability as well as spermatogenesis.

A rare abnormality of ejaculatory duct opening in the bladder trigone in a 33-year-old male associated with primary infertility: Case report and literature review.

Genitourinary anomalies constitute a large proportion of congenital malformations. However seminal tract anomalies, particularly ejaculatory duct (ED) anomalies are very rare and little information exists on the topic.

An evaluation of the population characteristics, semen quality, and utilization status of autologous sperm cryopreservation and fertility preservation in for 662 patients: a 6-year monocentric retrospective study.

Sperm cryopreservation is an effective method of fertility preservation for disease-related and social sperm freezing. In total, 662 subjects (range: 15-65 years-of-age; mean: 33.49 ± 8.

Impact of Varicocele Repair on Semen Parameters in Infertile Men: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

Despite the significant role of varicocele in the pathogenesis of male infertility, the impact of varicocele repair (VR) on conventional semen parameters remains controversial. Only a few systematic reviews and meta-analyses (SRMAs) have evaluated the impact of VR on sperm concentration, total motility, and progressive motility, mostly using a before-after analytic approach.
