Reproductive Chances of Men with Azoospermia Due to Spermatogenic Dysfunction.

Caroline Kang, Nahid Punjani, Peter N Schlegel,

Non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA), or lack of sperm in the ejaculate due to spermatogenic dysfunction, is the most severe form of infertility. Men with this form of infertility should be evaluated prior to treatment, as there are various underlying etiologies for NOA. While a significant proportion of NOA men have idiopathic ...

Two Decades from the Introduction of Microdissection Testicular Sperm Extraction: How This Surgical Technique Has Improved the Management of NOA.

Nahid Punjani, Caroline Kang, Peter N Schlegel,

The treatment of men with non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA) has improved greatly over the past two decades. This is in part due to the discovery of in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), but also significantly due to improvements in surgical sperm retrieval methods, namely the development of microdissection ...

Platelet-Reactive Antibodies in Patients after Ischaemic Stroke-An Epiphenomenon or a Natural Protective Mechanism.

Young Eun Park, Rushi Penumarthy, Paul P Sun, Caroline Y Kang, Marie-Christine Morel-Kopp, Jonathan Downing, Taryn N Green, Tracey Immanuel, Christopher M Ward, Deborah Young, Matthew J During, P Alan Barber, Maggie L Kalev-Zylinska,

Ischaemic brain damage induces autoimmune responses, including the production of autoantibodies with potential neuroprotective effects. Platelets share unexplained similarities with neurons, and the formation of anti-platelet antibodies has been documented in neurological disorders. The aim of this study was to investigate the presence of anti-platelet antibodies in the peripheral blood ... Read more >>

Clinical implications of Y chromosome microdeletions among infertile men.

Nahid Punjani, Caroline Kang, Peter N Schlegel,

Male factor infertility contributes significantly to couples facing difficulty achieving a pregnancy. Genetic factors, and specifically those related to the Y chromosome, may occur in up to 15% of men with oligozoospermia or azoospermia. A subset of loci within the Y chromosome, known as the azoospermia factors (AZFa, AZFb, and ... Read more >>

An Evidence-Based Protocol for Antibiotic Use Prior to Cystoscopy Decreases Antibiotic Use without Impacting Post-Procedural Symptomatic Urinary Tract Infection Rates.

Justin R Gregg, Rohan G Bhalla, J Paul Cook, Caroline Kang, Roger Dmochowski, Thomas R Talbot, Daniel A Barocas,

PURPOSE:Symptomatic urinary tract infection is a complication of office based cystourethroscopy. Studies are mixed regarding the efficacy of antibiotic prophylaxis to prevent urinary tract infections. Our aim was to develop and evaluate an evidence-based protocol that reduces unnecessary antibiotic use while avoiding an increase in urinary tract infections. MATERIALS AND ... Read more >>

Symptomatic Urinary Tract Infections in Renal Transplant Recipients after Cystoscopy for Ureteral Stent Removal.

Justin R Gregg, Caroline L Kang, Thomas R Talbot, Derek Moore, S Duke Herrell, Roger Dmochowski, Daniel A Barocas,

Introduction:Symptomatic urinary tract infection (UTI) is a known complication of cystoscopy with ureteral stent removal. However, little is known about the incidence and risk factors for post-cystoscopy UTI in renal transplant recipients, who likely represent a high-risk cohort. Our aim was to determine the infection rate following cystoscopy with stent ... Read more >>
