Table 1 Comparison of the percentage of motile spermatozoa and motility indices in sperm samples microaspirated from above and below the vas autografts (n = 15) and from identical vas sites in control animals (n = 5)

From: Interpositional substitution of free vas deferens segment autografts in rat: feasibility and potential implications

  Motility assessment  
  Control (n = 5) Experimental (n = 15) p
Proximal collection site
  % motile 59.1 + 24.6 51.1 + 12.3 0.34
  Motility index 99.7 + 43.4 91.7 + 27.2 0.62
Distal collection site
  % motile 64.1 + 23.6 61.2 + 17.4 0.77
  Motility index 109.8 + 47.1 102.2 + 28.9 0.66
  1. No comparisons between the data using either Student’s t-test (within animal data pair analysis) or one-way ANOVA (between animal data comparison) were found to be significantly different.
