026IC - Infertility Update 2018: A Comprehensive Approach to the Clinical Diagnosis & Treatment of the Infertile Male

Saturday, May 19
7:30 AM - 9:30 AM
Location: MCC WEST, 2009

This course will present an in depth approach as well as the latest clinical developments in the office diagnosis and medical/surgical treatment of the infertile male. The course will serve as a complete review in addressing the male fertility patient. In addition to reviewing the fundamentals of male factor infertility, advances in our understanding of the genetic causes of infertility will be addressed. Techniques and interpretation of the endocrine workup, office evaluation (history and physical), and appropriate laboratory testing will be reviewed and updated. Medical and surgical management of the infertile male will be discussed with an emphasis on recent innovations, including the evolving role of ultrasonography, an update on tests of sperm function, and a detailed review of the techniques of sperm retrieval (epididymis or testis) for subsequent ART micromanipulation. The latest medical therapies will also be discussed, and there will be a strong focus on case management.
