Rives N et al. – In this study, the authors determined that sperm cryobanking should preferentially be performed before orchiectomy and that testicular sperm extraction concurrent with orchiectomy should be used in severe spermatogenesis impairment. The study highlights that seminomas alter sperm production more significantly than non–seminoma tumors and seem to preferentially impair spermatogenesis in tumor–bearing testes.
