Please find below a list of recent medical publications and papers I've authored or been a part of:
Should the current guidelines for the treatment of varicoceles in infertile men be re-evaluated?
Published in March 2019, this review comprehensively evaluates the current indications for varicocele treatment, and it is proposed that these should be redefined in contemporary guidelines to reflect current advances in male fertility research.
A Comparison between two assays for measuring seminal oxidative stress and their relationship with sperm DNA fragmentation
Oxidative stress (OS) is a significant cause of DNA fragmentation and is associated with poor embryo development and recurrent miscarriage. The aim of this study was to compare two different methods for assessing seminal OS and their ability to predict sperm DNA fragmentation and abnormal semen parameters
Microdissection testicular sperm extraction for men undergoing cancer treatment
Where cryopreservation of a good quality semen sample is not possible or was not offered prior to initiation of treatment, microdissection testicular sperm extraction (mTESE) offers a potential route to biological fatherhood. This review explores current evidence supporting the use of mTESE in patients treated for cancer, as well as some of the barriers and questions that still remain before this technique can form part of routine practice.
Mixed Sertoli cell only histology and NOA
Likelihood of sperm retrieval is increased four-fold when Sertoli-cell only histology is observed in combination with another histological pattern during microdissection testicular extraction (mTESE) for non-obstructive azoospermia
In this chapter from the publication "Recent Advances in Endocrinology and Diabetes 1", my co-authors and I report on the main contributory factors to male infertility, and discuss the most appropriate ways in which to manage those suffering.
