A comprehensive and practice-oriented resource guide to currently available diagnostic and treatment options for male infertility disorders. Topics covered range from basic sperm biology and male reproductive endocrinology, to immunology, specialized sperm testing, and the genetic background to male infertility. The authors emphasize the investigation, diagnostic testing, and management of the infertile male, but also examine such timely issues as gender selection, HIV discordance couples, and posthumous reproduction. Other topics of interest include laboratory accreditation, vasectomy reversal, ethical and legal considerations of donor insemination, optimizing success in a donor insemination program, and strategic therapies for ejaculatory disorders and erectile dysfunction in infertile men.
