PESA is a treatment method employed when infertility results because of the male partner. It is one of the sperm retrieval processes that is carried out in cases of Obstructive Azoospermia or lack of sperm in semen. It is an invasive technique that involves extracting the sperm form the Epididmysis.
As mentioned, PESA is used in cases of poor sperm production which could be due to genetic issues, infections, maldescended testes etc. Obstruction of genital tract that is irreversible due to previous surgeries or trauma or infection could also be treated with PESA. A previous vasectomy or absence of vas deferens by birth are also some of the common reasons when PESA is used. It is also used in combination with ICSI or IVF. The success rate for the procedure is similar to IVF and ICSI.
It is performed in a hospital set-up, under general or local anesthesia. Pre-testing might include blood tests and testicular biopsy. In this procedure, a fine needle is passed through the skin of the epididmysis to retrieve the sperm.
PESA is usually done on the same day as the eggs are collected from the female partner who is going through the IVF cycle. The sperm is retrieved through PESA and the inserted into the eggs or the cytoplasm of the eggs with the help of ICSI. PESA does not usually require hospitalization and the person can be discharged on the same day.
