Abstract

The management of patients with male infertility is a complex topic with a vast scope in terms of biological and historical importance. Infertile men have played hugely important roles in world history (Abraham, George Washington, Louis XVI); their treatment has been a focus of interest for not just physicians, but also the religious (fertility priests, shamans, clergy), artists (authors, playwrights, and songwriters), not to mention the patients themselves.
