Abstract:   (3090 Views)
The effects of spinal cord injury on sexual responses depend on the severity of the damage and the damage site. Spinal cord injury affects affected people during their fertility years and disrupts their reproductive ability.
Case presentation:
The present study reports a 30-year-old man who had been referred to the operating room for testing of testicular tissue (TESE, a test for detecting fertility in testicular tissue). The patient, despite spinal cord injuries at the T11 level, continued normal spermatogenesis and fertility for more than 10 years.
Sexual dysfunctions and the inability of people with spinal cord problems cause serious psychological harm to family members. It is possible that the condition of the suitability of the testate size by testing the testicular tissue and intrauterine fertilization can greatly improve these mental health problems.
Keywords: Spinal Cord Injury, TESE, Fertility and Infertility
