The Role of Assisted Conception in Male Infertility

  • P. C. Wong
  • A. Kamal


This chapter discusses the role of assisted conception, i.e. in vitro fertilisation (IVF), gamete intra-fallopian transfer (GIFT), and zygote intra-fallopian transfer (ZIFT) in the management of male infertility. In vitro fertilisation was initially developed as a treatment for female infertility secondary to bilateral fallopian tube occlusion. Indications for its use have broadened and it is now being employed successfully for other causes of infertility such as endometriosis, unexplained infertility and male factor infertility (Rogers 1989; Yates and De Kretser 1987). Pregnancy rates have gradually improved from 16.5% in earlier series to approximately 30% in later series (Edwards et al. 1984).
