A study of semen parameters with emphasis on sperm morphology in a fertile population: An attempt to develop clinical thresholds
The aim of the study was to determine the semen parameters of a proven fertile population and to compare these parameters with that of a subfertile group in the same region. Sixty-nine fertile male patients were studied ...

Objective To investigate sperm DNA damage in relation to fertilization and pregnancy. Design Prospective study. Setting The Institute of Reproductive Medicine, Giessen, Germany. Patient(s) Semen collected from 249 patients ...
Relationship between zona pellucida-induced acrosome reaction, sperm morphology, sperm-zona pellucida binding, and in vitro fertilization
Objective: To evaluate the possible relationships between sperm morphology, acrosome responsiveness to solubilized human zona pellucida, and sperm-zona binding potential among  consecutive andrology referrals and  ...
Semen profiles of male partners in females presenting with endometriosis-associated subfertility
Objective: To establish fertile and subfertile groups of males in couples presenting with endometriosis-related infertility in the female. Design: Retrospective study of semen profiles on partners of women undergoing surgery ...
Use of a zona laser treatment system in assisted hatching: Optimal laser utilization parameters
Objective: This study aimed to establish the benefit of laser micromanipulation of the zona pellucida as a method of assisted hatching and to determine the optimal technical settings. Design: Prospective pilot study. ...
Predictive value of normal sperm morphology in intrauterine insemination (IUI): A structured literature review
The aim of the study was to conduct a structured review of the literature published on the use of normal sperm morphology, as an indicator of male fertility potential in intrauterine insemination (IUI) programmes. Published ...
Surrogate pregnancies in patients with Mayer-Rokitansky-Kustner-Hauser syndrome and severe teratozoospermia
The challenge of the case presented was threefold: congenital absent uterus (Mayer-Rokitansky-Kustner-Hauser syndrome), a request for surrogacy, and teratozoospermia in the husband (6% normal morphology according to the ...
DNA fragmentation of spermatozoa and assisted reproduction technology
Despite the ever-increasing knowledge of the fertilization process, there is still a need for better understanding of the causes of sperm DNA fragmentation and its impact on fertilization and pregnancy. For this reason, ...
