Varicocele and male infertility in Northeast China: Y chromosome microdeletion as an underlying cause
“Varicocele and male infertility in Northeast China: Y chromosome microdeletion as an underlying cause”, vol. 14, pp. 6583-6590, 2015.,
The prevalence of Y chromosome microdeletions among azoospermic, severe oligozoospermic, moderate oligozoospermic, and mild oligozoospermic patients with varicocele-related and idiopathic infertility shows conflicting data in Asian countries. We aimed to detect this frequency in Northeast China, and investigated spermatogenic defects whether associated with varicocele or Y chromosome microdeletions. All samples underwent a thorough physical examination, semen analysis, and PCR analyses for Y chromosome microdeletions.
