  • Aims and objectives of this session

    The aim of the session is to provide the audience with up-to-date knowledge on the treatment of common etiologies of male factor infertility such as varicoceles and azoospermia and the latest results of Micro-TESE. The session will include a variety of research spanning from the role of semen analysis in evaluation of male infertility to clinical implication of genetic testing which can be readily implemented in the andrology clinic.

  • Poster viewing of 20 minutes. Presentations will take place on stage. Standard presentations are 2 minutes in length, followed by 2 minutes for discussion. Extended presentations (*) are 3 minutes in length, followed by 3 minutes for discussion.
