Nationwide Use of Postmortem Retrieved Sperm in Israel: A Follow-Up Report
Fertility and sterility 2011 Jun 30; 95(8): 2693-5
A follow-up study of the subsequent use of all postmortem frozen sperm samples during 2003-2010 is reported. Only the sister of one of the 10 unmarried deceased men was in contact with the bank. Four widows elected to discard the frozen sperm and all of the remaining spouses were uninterested in its fate. Because none of the samples were requested for use, the need for sperm procurement should be reconsidered.
