Table 2 The descriptive statistics of parameters of couples undergoing ICSI after successful TESE, comparing those cycles with a live birth to those without a live birth

From: Can preoperative parameters predict successful sperm retrieval and live birth in couples undergoing testicular sperm extraction and intracytoplasmic sperm injection for azoospermia?

  1. aThree patients had egg freeze
  2. Live birth was defined as at least one live birth outcome during treatment at our unit including all cycles of ICSI
