Abstract

The results of treatment of 68 idiopathic male infertile cases are reported. The follow up period was 3 years and 8 months from the time the Department of Urology, Kaizuka Municipal Hospital had opened. The main treatments were human mammary gonadotropin-human chorionic gonadotropin (HMG-HCG) therapy and high ligation of left testicular vein in the cases accompanied with varicocele. Adjuvant therapy was administration of vitamin B12, herb medicine and antibiotic agents for prostatovesiculitis. Some cases were administered clomiphene citrate. The results in 43 cases at over 10 weeks after treatment was followed. Mean sperm count and mean sperm activity rate in 11 cases accompanied with no varicocele and whose sperm count was 2 approximately 45 x 10(6)/ml were raised from 11.0 +/- 8.0 SD x 10(6)/ml and 19.1 +/- 11.4 SD% to 22.7 +/- 16.8 SD x 10(6)/ml and 26.9 +/- 18.5 SD%, respectively after 20 weeks of HMG-HCG therapy. Efficacy was 7 out of 11 (63.6%) in sperm count and 6 out of 11 (54.5%) in sperm activity rate. Pregnancy was obtained in 3 cases. Effect of HMG-HCG therapy was not observed in 8 cases accompanied with varicocele and whose sperm count was 2 approximately 45 x 10(6)/ml. High ligation of left testicular vein was effective in all of the 4 cases accompanied with varicocele and whose sperm count was 2 approximately 45 x 10(6)/ml.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
