New Study: Innovative Technique Allows Male Cancer Survivors Who are Sterile from Treatment to Father Children
Date:1/27/2010

dergoing the testis sperm mapping technique, small pockets of sperm were discovered. With assisted reproduction using these sperm, both successfully fathered healthy children.

In previously published research, investigators reported a 65 percent success rate in finding sperm in the testis of patients with azoospermia after chemotherapy for both benign and malignant disease. However, the cases currently reported involve men who received much higher doses of chemotherapy that are typically associated with bone marrow transplants. And despite the use of assisted reproduction in chemotherapy-exposed sperm, no increase in birth defect rates have been noted.

Dr. Turek notes, however, that for men who need radiation and chemotherapy for cancer treatment, sperm banking prior to the therapy remains the single best way to preserve their reproductive potential.

“Patients undergoing cancer treatments need to be informed of the good news on the other side,” Dr. Turek states. “There are sophisticated and effective ways to help men become fathers after the storm of cancer treatment has passed.”

About Sperm Mapping
Testis sperm mapping, also known as FNA Mapping, was pioneered by Dr. Turek 13 years ago. The procedure is a breakthrough, minimally invasive reproductive treatment for men found to be sterile from genetic or other causes of infertility. Sperm mapping involves the use of fine needle aspiration (FNA) to take small tissue samples nonsurgically from 15 designated – or mapped – areas of each testicle under local anesthesia in 30 minutes.
