1. the process or act of pulling or drawing out.
2. the preparation of an extract.
breech extraction extraction of an infant from the uterus in cases of breech presentation.
flap extraction removal of a cataract by making a flap in the cornea.
menstrual extraction a form of induced abortion in which a flexible cannula is inserted through an undilated cervix for the purpose of removing the fertilized embryo and endometrium. The cannula is attached to a syringe, which is used to aspirate the uterine contents and induce the onset of the “missed period.” This technique is not always effective, and sometimes a second procedure is required. It should be done within two weeks of a missed menstrual period.
serial extraction the selective extraction of primary teeth during an extended period of time to allow autonomous adjustment.
tooth extraction forcible removal of a tooth; called also odontectomy.
vacuum extraction removal of the uterine contents by application of a vacuum, done either for delivery of a viable fetus or for an abortion.

The use of testicular spermatozoa for ICSI has, since its introduction in 1992, been very successful in enabling men with azoospermia to achieve genetic fatherhood.10 The first successful pregnancy was achieved after testicular sperm extraction (TESE) from patients suffering from obstructive azoospermia.11 The same year, a pregnancy was reported after a simplified fine needle aspiration technique, called testicular sperm aspiration (TESA).12 In cases of non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA) the outcome is more unpredictable and the sperm recovery rate lower than in obstructive cases.13,14
Testicular sperm retrieval by percutaneous fine needle sperm aspiration compared with testicular sperm extraction by open biopsy in men with non-obstructive azoospermia.
The aim of this study was to compare use of fresh and frozen sperm samples in non-obstructive azoospermia through microdissection testicular sperm extraction (microTESE) treatment.
Immature sperm, such as those from testicular sperm extraction (TESE), produce much greater ROS than mature sperm (14).
In the testicular sperm extraction technique, it is important to have good quality, matured sperm for successful application of ART.
In 11.5% of azoospermic men mature sperm was found following testicular sperm extraction (TESE), but it was much lower than other studies (31).
Can serum Inhibin B and FSH levels, testicular histology and volume predict the outcome of testicular sperm extraction in patients with non-obstructive azoospermia?
