For patients with a spinal cord injury, assisted ejaculation procedures are recommended as the treatment of choice. If assisted ejaculation procedures fail or yield spermatozoa insufficient to assisted reproductive techniques, surgical sperm retrieval is indicated. A total of 7 patients with a spinal cord injury, who still failed to obtain pregnancy after assisted ejaculation procedures, were treated in our clinic with the in vitro retrieval of epididymal sperm. The efficacy of in vitro retrieval of epididymal sperm was evaluated.
