The leading procedure now in use to determine male infertility, the spermiogram, is fully presented in this very practical manual. Step-by-step instructions for the preparation and evaluation of spermiograms are given. The numerous accompanying illustrations, mostly in color, enable accurate morphological recognition and assessment of normal and pathological spermatozoal forms as well as other cellular elements. Separate chapters are devoted to spermatozoal stimulation, penetration tests and immunological tests, all aspects which have increased in importance in light of improved insemination techniques and in vitro fertilization. This book gives excellent practical assistance to all those working in the field of andrology - urologists, gynecologists, dermatologists, endocrinologists, general practitioners, and laboratory researchers - and serves as an introduction to the methods of insemination and the assessment of the chances of successful in vitro fertilization.
