Surgical removal of the ductus deferens, or a portion of it. It is done in association with prostatectomy, or to induce infertility. (Dorland, 28th ed)
Surgical anastomosis or fistulization of the spermatic ducts to restore fertility in a previously vasectomized male.
Procedures to reverse the effect of REPRODUCTIVE STERILIZATION and to regain fertility. Reversal procedures include those used to restore the flow in the FALLOPIAN TUBE or the VAS DEFERENS.
The application of a caustic substance, a hot instrument, an electric current, or other agent to control bleeding while removing or destroying tissue.
Agglutination of spermatozoa by antibodies or autoantibodies.
The excretory duct of the testes that carries SPERMATOZOA. It rises from the SCROTUM and joins the SEMINAL VESICLES to form the ejaculatory duct.
The convoluted cordlike structure attached to the posterior of the TESTIS. Epididymis consists of the head (caput), the body (corpus), and the tail (cauda). A network of ducts leaving the testis joins into a common epididymal tubule proper which provides the transport, storage, and maturation of SPERMATOZOA.
A cystic dilation of the EPIDIDYMIS, usually in the head portion (caput epididymis). The cyst fluid contains dead SPERMATOZOA and can be easily differentiated from TESTICULAR HYDROCELE and other testicular lesions.
Procedures to block or remove all or part of the genital tract for the purpose of rendering individuals sterile, incapable of reproduction. Surgical sterilization procedures are the most commonly used. There are also sterilization procedures involving chemical or physical means.
A count of SPERM in the ejaculum, expressed as number per milliliter.
Mature male germ cells derived from SPERMATIDS. As spermatids move toward the lumen of the SEMINIFEROUS TUBULES, they undergo extensive structural changes including the loss of cytoplasm, condensation of CHROMATIN into the SPERM HEAD, formation of the ACROSOME cap, the SPERM MIDPIECE and the SPERM TAIL that provides motility.
Inflammation of the EPIDIDYMIS. Its clinical features include enlarged epididymis, a swollen SCROTUM; PAIN; PYURIA; and FEVER. It is usually related to infections in the URINARY TRACT, which likely spread to the EPIDIDYMIS through either the VAS DEFERENS or the lymphatics of the SPERMATIC CORD.
A surgical specialty concerned with the study, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the urinary tract in both sexes, and the genital tract in the male. Common urological problems include urinary obstruction, URINARY INCONTINENCE, infections, and UROGENITAL NEOPLASMS.
Inflammation of a TESTIS. It has many features of EPIDIDYMITIS, such as swollen SCROTUM; PAIN; PYURIA; and FEVER. It is usually related to infections in the URINARY TRACT, which likely spread to the EPIDIDYMIS and then the TESTIS through either the VAS DEFERENS or the lymphatics of the SPERMATIC CORD.

Weak autoantibody reactions to antigens other than sperm after vasectomy. (1/292)

Autoantibody activity against various antigens was measured by indirect immunofluorescence in 97 men about to undergo vasectomy and 170 men who had undergone the operation up to six years earlier. There was a significantly higher prevalence of weakly positive autoantibody reactions among those who had undergone vasectomy. There was, however, no evidence that vasectomy could induce stronger autoantibody reactions such as those associated with autoimmune disease.  (+info)

Surgical sterilization of free-ranging wolves. (2/292)

The objective of the study was to determine whether surgical sterilization of both males and females in wolf pairs alters basic wolf social and territorial behaviors. Wolves were located from the air by snow-tracking methods and were tranquilizer-darted from a helicopter. Surgeries were performed either in a tent at the capture site or in a heated building in a nearby village. Six vasectomies and seven uterine horn ligations were performed in January and February of 1996 and 1997. Two females died: one likely related to the capture procedure, the other of a peritonitis unrelated to the surgery. One wolf had a litter. None of the wolves have shown changes in behavioral patterns. Surgical sterilization can be effective, but other, less invasive, fertility control techniques should be investigated.  (+info)

Production of germfree mice by embryo transfer. (3/292)

We applied the embryo transfer technique to germfree (GF) mouse production. Embryos harvested from superovulated mice were transferred aseptically, in a sterile environment, to the uterus of GF recipient females which had been mated with vasectomized GF males. One of the recipients became pregnant and delivered offspring. Sterility tests confirmed that the vasectomized males, newborns, recipient female mice, embryo-containing culture media, and the inside of the vinyl film isolator were germfree. These results suggest that the embryo transfer technique can be successfully applied to the production of GF mice.  (+info)

Incidence of sperm antibodies before and after vasectomy. (4/292)

Sperm-agglutinating antibodies were present in three (2-6%) of 117 fertile men and in 19 (33-9%) of 56 men who had been vasectomized. Twenty-four of the 56 vasectomized men had been studied before vasectomy; sperm-agglutinating antibodies were present in one (4-3%) compared with eight (33-3%) after vasectomy. No sperm-immobilizing antibodies were detected before vasectomy but were present in 10 (17-9%) of the 56 men after vasectomy.  (+info)

Inhibition of human seminal fluid DNA polymerase by an IgG fraction of seminal plasma from vasectomized men. (5/292)

Immunoglobulin G (IgG) was isolated from ejaculates of intact and vasectomized men by precipitation with ammonium sulphate and DEAE-cellulose ionexchange chromatography. Velocity centrifugation revealed that all of the IgG from intact males was 7S protein while less than 40% of the seminal IgG of vasectomized men cosedimented with the 7S marker; the remaining, immunologically unidentifiable, protein was considerably smaller and heterogeneous in size. Only the 7S IgG from the post-vasectomy ejaculates inhibited the activity of a DNA polymerase from the seminal fluid of an intact male. These results suggest that formation of antibody reactive with the seminal fluid DNA polymerase is one manifestation of a vasectomy-associated autoimmune response in man.  (+info)

Studies on the immunogenicity of protamines in humans and experimental animals by means of a micro-complement fixation test. (6/292)

A complement fixation study with human, monkey and rabbit sera, using purified sperm nuclear basic proteins as antigens, led to the following conclusions. (1) Protamines, the sperm-specific basic nuclear proteins, may be immunogenic in mammalians. (2) Antibodies detected in the indirect immunofluorescence test on human swollen sperm heads in sera from infertile and vasectomized men, are directed primarily against human protamines. (3) The results obtained suggested that differences in the immunization site and/or in the configuration of the immunizing protamine, may lead to the formation of antibodies directed against different antigenic determinants. Autoimmunity to protamines, following vasectomy or in infertile men, is accompanied by the formation of antibodies cross-reacting with common antigenic determinants present in protamines of other species. Induction of immunity to protamines by means of immunization with protamines-RNA complexes (in rabbits), or protamine-insulin complexes (in humans), leads to the formation of antibodies reacting more specifically with the immunizing protamine, showing only slight cross-reaction with other protamines. (4) The histone-like fraction present in mature human spermatozoa is composed mainly of histone fraction H2B.  (+info)

Post-vasectomy autoimmunity to protamines in relation to the formation of granulomas and sperm agglutinating antibodies. (7/292)

The development of antibodies reacting with nuclear antigens was studied in sera from vasectomized men and monkeys (obtained at intervals of up to 2 and 4 years, respectively, after the operation), by means of a comparative fluorescence study on swollen nuclei of somatic cells, human and salmon spermatozoa. About 30% of forty-seven vasectomized men developed antibodies to protamines. Also four out of fifteen monkeys, vasectomized with or without ligation, developed antibodies reacting with protamines. In general, when antibodies to the homologous protamines reached higher levels, cross-reactions with salmon protamine could be demonstrated as well. No significant reactions could be detected with somatic nuclear antigens in the sera. Comparison between the results obtained with the immunofluorescence test, the agglutination tests and the clinical findings confirmed the association between the development of immune responses to various sperm-antigens and revealed a coherence of anti-protamine activity and granuloma formation at the site of the operation.  (+info)

Induction of pseudopregnancy in the mongolian gerbil (Meriones unguiculatus) by vaginal stimulation. (8/292)

In rats, pseudopregnancy has been induced by mating with vasectomized males, by mechanical stimulation of the uterine cervix with a glass rod or vibrator, and by stimulation of the vagina with a tampon. On the other hand, no practical data are available in reports on the induction of pseudopregnancy in Mongolian gerbils. Pseudopregnancy of gerbils has been induced by mating with vasectomized males. But this method was uncertain because the incidence of pseudopregnancy was lower than that obtained in rats by other means. In the present study, two experiments were undertaken as follows. 1) Copulatory behavior of gerbils was observed for one hour to determine the most effective stimulation interval. 2) From the results of Experiment 1, female gerbils in estrus were mechanically stimulated to test the effectiveness of inducing pseudopregnancy by vaginal stimulation at various time intervals. The results of these experiments indicated that, although the frequency of copulatory behavior varied among individuals, on average the most effective method for inducing pseudopregnancy was stimulation of 5 min duration and at 20 or 30 min intervals. Because the incidence of pseudopregnancy induced by such mechanical stimulation (83.3%) was higher than that induced by mating with vasectomized males (30.0%), this method might be useful in inducing pseudopregnancy in Mongolian gerbils.  (+info)

Vasectomy is the most common and effective method of achieving permanent male sterility. In 2002, an estimated 526,501 vasectomies were performed in the US.1 In 2004, nearly 43 million men worldwide underwent vasectomy.2 Vasectomies are routinely performed in the outpatient setting under local anesthesia. Vasectomies are typically performed by urologists but may also be performed by family medicine physicians or general surgeons. Although there are various vasectomy techniques, it remains a highly effective procedure regardless of the technique performed, with pregnancy rates of 0.10% to 0.15% within the first year after vasectomy.3 Vasectomy complications are relatively uncommon and include infection, epididymitis, hemorrhage, and sperm granuloma. Each of these complications occurs in less than 5% of cases.2,4. A vasectomy does not result in immediate sterility because residual sperm are located throughout the vas deferens and seminal vesicles. Patients are instructed to use an additional ...
Vasectomy Reversal. At Virginia Urology, our team of experts face a wide variety of questions related to mens health. One question that many of our patients ask is if a vasectomy is a permanent choice?. While a vasectomy is considered to be a permanent form of birth control, the procedure can be reversed. This procedure reconnects the vas deferens tubes that were cut during initial surgery. During a vasectomy, the vas deferens are cut to initiate a change in semen (sperm-free).. It is estimated that about 600,000 men have a vasectomy each year in the United States, and 5 percent of those individuals opt for a vasectomy reversal. Some of the reasons for wanting a vasectomy reversal include: remarriage, death of a child, or improved financial stability.. During a consultation with our team at Virginia Urology, our team of physicians will discuss if a vasectomy reversal is a good option for you. With a vasectomy reversal, the amount of time between the initial vasectomy and the reversal makes a ...
New York, NY (February 19, 2004) -- Debunking a popular myth about vasectomy, a new study by physician-scientists at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center finds that vasectomy reversal is highly effective, even 15 years or more after the vas deferens, the tube that carries sperm, is blocked. The study, published in the January Journal of Urology, documents the highest pregnancy rates following vasectomy of any study to date.Whether a man had a vasectomy this year or 15 years ago, there was no difference in the pregnancy rate achieved following a vasectomy reversal, with an average 84-percent likelihood of pregnancy over two years, the study finds. (Comparatively, healthy men without vasectomy can expect a pregnancy rate of 90 percent.) Previous studies have demonstrated pregnancy rates following vasectomy reversal of only 50-60 percent, a difference that can be attributed to advances in vasectomy-reversal techniques. The study also finds that at intervals of greater than 15 years,
Randomized controlled trials comparing different vasectomy occlusion techniques are lacking. Thus, this multicenter randomized trial was conducted to compare the probability of the success of ligation and excision vasectomy with, versus without, fascial interposition (i.e. placing a layer of the vas sheath between two cut ends of the vas). The trial was conducted between December 1999 and June 2002 with a single planned interim analysis. Men requesting vasectomies at eight outpatient clinics in seven countries in North America, Latin America, and Asia were included in the study. The men were randomized to receive vasectomy with versus without fascial interposition. All surgeons performed the vasectomies using the no-scalpel approach to the vas. Participants had a semen analysis two weeks after vasectomy and then every four weeks up to 34 weeks. The primary outcome measure was time to azoospermia. Additional outcome measures were time to severe oligozoospermia (|100 000 sperm/mL) and vasectomy failure
A standard vasectomy is performed through one or two small scrotal incisions. Once the procedure starts, the patient may experience mild discomfort when local anesthesia is administered. However, once the anesthesia takes effect, the patient should feel no pain. Some men feel a slight tugging sensation as the vasa are manipulated. Following local anesthesia, the vas deferens are isolated on each side and skeletonized of their surrounding tissue, vessels, and nerves. Multiple redundant steps are routinely taken in order to ensure discontinuity of the vas deferens and prevent recanalization. These steps can include transection of the vas with removal of an intervening segment, cauterization of the lumen of the vas deferens, ligation of the vas with a clip or suture, and transposition of a tissue layer between the cut ends of the vas.Most vasectomies are done right in the doctors office, or in a clinic. The ideal vasectomy results in minimal bleeding and almost no intra-operative pain. A vasectomy is
A no-scalpel vasectomy (or keyhole vasectomy) is a less invasive vasectomy option. With quicker recovery times, less pain and no incision, is a no-scalpel vasectomy for you?
Most long-term consequences of a vasectomy are positive. Some people, for example, report improvements in their sex life, which may be due in part to decreased anxiety about unintentionally getting a partner pregnant.. However, there are potential risks following the procedure, including those below.. 1. Recanalization. Recanalization happens when the vas deferens grow back to create a new connection, causing the vasectomy to reverse itself.. The sperm are then able to get back into the semen, meaning that the person becomes fertile again.. 2. Failed vasectomy. Sometimes, a vasectomy may fail. In this case, a person may need to repeat the surgery or find another birth control option.. 3. Regret and uncertainty. Some people may regret having a vasectomy and feel uncertain about whether they might still want children, particularly if they start a new relationship.. Vasectomies are usually reversible, but the likelihood of success depends on the type of vasectomy and the skill of the reversal ...
Vasectomy remains an important option for contraception. Research findings have clarified many questions regarding patient selection, optimal technique, postsurgical follow-up, and risk of long-term complications. Men who receive vasectomies tend to be non-Hispanic whites, well educated, married or cohabitating, relatively affluent, and have private health insurance. The strongest predictor for wanting a vasectomy reversal is age younger than 30 years at the time of the procedure. Evidence supports the use of the no-scalpel technique to access the vasa, because it is associated with the fewest complications. The technique with the lowest failure rate is cauterization of the vasa with or without fascial interposition. The ligation techniques should be used cautiously, if at all, and only in combination with fascial interposition or cautery. A single postvasectomy semen sample at 12 weeks that shows rare, nonmotile sperm or azoospermia is acceptable to confirm sterility. No data show that vasectomy
The no-scalpel procedure is similar to a traditional vasectomy. But its done without cuts (incisions) or stitches. And it generally results in faster healing. Read on for details.
A very commonly asked question after vasectomy is will semen volume drop, or will the vasectomy impact ejaculatory function? Men do not notice a drop in semen volume when they ejaculate after vasectomy either because only 2 percent of the volume comes from the sperm cells made in the testicles. The other 98% of the ejaculate volume comes from downstream of where the blockage is made with a vasectomy, from the seminal vesicles and prostate gland. Ejaculatory function should not change after a vasectomy. ...
After your vasectomy, your doctor will provide written instructions to optimize recovery. Be sure to read these instructions about recovering from your vasectomy and follow them carefully. Arrange a ride home after the vasectomy and rest for 48 hours, even if you dont feel like you need to. For most men recovery takes two to three days after the vasectomy and then you can return to work. However, if your work involves heavy labour recovery will take up to a week after the vasectomy. Only if you do light work, you can get away with recovering from vasectomy with just a few days off ...
In this procedure, vas deferens, the tube that carries the sperm, is disconnected and ligated. It is a safe, effective and a permanent form of contraception. Despite reversal techniques being available, this procedure is performed with intention of permanent contraception.. Vasectomy does not affect the ejaculation, erectile function or impair ability to have an orgasm. It is also important to note that vasectomy does not protect against STDs. Following vasectomy, patients should continue contraception until the semen analysis confirms absence of viable sperms.. How is the procedure performed?. The procedure is performed either under local or general anaesthesia depending on the preference of the patient. Vasectomy is performed through two very small incisions on the side of the scrotum. Patients can often go home on the same day and recovery is often short. The sutures used to close the wound are absorbable and do not need to be removed.. What are the complications of vasectomy?. Overall the ...

Although men considering vasectomies should not think of them as reversible, and most men and their partners are satisfied with the operation,[47][48] life circumstances and outlooks can change, and there is a surgical procedure to reverse vasectomies using vasovasostomy (a form of microsurgery first performed by Earl Owen in 1971[49][50]). Vasovasostomy is effective at achieving pregnancy in a variable percentage of cases, and total out-of-pocket costs in the United States are often upwards of $10,000.[51] The typical success rate of pregnancy following a vasectomy reversal is around 55% if performed within 10 years, and drops to around 25% if performed after 10 years.[52] After reversal, sperm counts and motility are usually much lower than pre-vasectomy levels. There is evidence that men who have had a vasectomy may produce more abnormal sperm, which would explain why even a mechanically successful reversal does not always restore fertility.[53][54] The higher rates of aneuploidy and diploidy ...

Vasectomy can be performed by means of various techniques, although each vasectomy technique requires isolation and division of the vas and operative management of the vasal ends. Removal of at least 15 mm of vas is recommended, although division of the vas without removal of a segment is effective when this technique is combined with other techniques for handling the vasal ends, such as thermal luminal fulguration and proximal fascial interposition. Ligation of the ends without the aid of surgical clips may result in necrosis and sloughing of the ends, which may cause early failure. Leaving the testicular end of the vas open has been shown to be effective and to result in a lower incidence of epididymal congestion and sperm granuloma. The no-scalpel technique offers shorter operating time, less pain and swelling, and faster recovery.
Vasectomy: What is a Vasectomy? A Vasectomy cuts and closes off the tubes (vas deferens) that deliver sperm from the testes and serves as a permanent form of birth control. It does not change a mans orgasm or how much fluid comes out when he ejaculates.
LESSONS LEARNED. 1. In every country, in every county and every community, there is a percentage of men, however large, who are fully dedicated to the well-being of their families. These men are committed to making conscious and informed decisions that have a positive impact on the well-being of themselves and their families. Their spirit is both aspirational and optimistic.. And although they might only constitute a small minority of the population, these men are your leaders and are, by definition, agents of change.. 2. Research has demonstrated a correlation between vasectomy acceptance and better gender relations. It is not that having a vasectomy necessarily transform a man into a good man, but that men who choose a vasectomy are more likely to treat their women with more kindness, more consciousness and greater respect.. 3.

Following a vasectomy, some people experience serious complications but these are rare. We list some possible complications below.. 1. Infection and bleeding. Infection and bleeding following the procedure are generally treatable although they may be serious or even fatal in rare cases. A severe untreated infection or an infection resistant to antibiotics may spread to other areas of the body. Similarly, severe bleeding can involve a transfusion of blood, or even endanger the life of a person. A chirurgist may accidentally damage the testicular artery during the procedure. Such injury can cause bleeding or damage to the testicles, as well as discomfort in the short or long term.. 2. Postvasectomy pain syndrome. Postvasectomy pain syndrome is a more common complication which causes a person to have long-term pain in the scrotum. The region may be sore or very sensitive. Postvasectomy syndrome can affect orgasm and sexual function. Although the pain may be lessened by some medications, no specific ...

Do you know why Sigmund Freud, esteemed psychoanalyst, had a vasectomy when he was 67 years old? How about William Butler Yeats, the famed writer, having his vasectomy at 69 years of age. Were they that sexually active and worried about conceiving? God bless them if this is true!. Hardly. Believe it or not, vasectomies were done in the roaring twenties and thirties in Austria by an endocrinologist named Steinach for physical and mental rejuvenation. It revived my creative power, wrote Yeats in 1937. This may be true as Yeats wrote a crop of poems during this period that rank with his best work. At that time, a vasectomy was considered the holy grail of perpetual youth. Steinach felt that by blocking sperm flow, male hormone production in the testis would improve.. The idea of hormonal rejuvenation really started in earnest with an acclaimed endocrinologist named Brown-Sequard who in 1889 injected himself with testicular extracts from rats and dogs. This led to the trend of organotherapy in ...

Vasectomy is performed by transection of the vas deferens with suture, clips, cautery or a combination of these in the scrotal portion of the vas. This transection disrupts the mucosal, muscular, and adventitial components of the vas deferens, including the autonomic nerves that mediate vasal secretory function and peristalsis. Vasal obstruction results in increased intraluminal pressures within the testicular remnant of the vas deferens. The increased pressure may have physiologic effects on epithelial cell morphology, cellular ultrastructure, and gene expression in the vas deferens and epididymis. Moreover, sperm cannot traverse the intentionally obstructed vasal lumen, and as such they accumulate and die within the testicular remnant of the vas deferens and the epididymis. A resultant local inflammatory response occurs in reaction to dying sperm, which has significant downstream sequelae, including a systemic cellular and humoral immunologic response that may impair testicular and sperm ...
Vasectomy What is vasectomy? Vasectomy is a surgical procedure performed to make a man sterile, or unable to father a child. It is a permanent male birth control measure, and a means of contraception used in many parts of the world. Generally, vasectomy leaves the patient unchanged except that the vas deferens - the tubes leading to the testes - are blocked. The testes still produce sperm, but the sperm die and are absorbed by the body. The level of testosterone remains the same and all male sexual char...

Post-vasectomy pain syndrome is a chronic and sometimes debilitating genital pain condition that may develop immediately or several years after vasectomy. Because this condition is a syndrome, there is no single treatment method, therefore efforts focus on mitigating/relieving the individual patients specific pain. When pain in the epididymides is the primary symptom, post-vasectomy pain syndrome is often described as congestive epididymitis. Persistent pain in the genitalia and/or genital area(s). Groin pain upon physical exertion. Pain when achieving an erection and/or engaging in sexual intercourse. Pain upon ejaculation. Loss of erectile function Any of the aforementioned pain conditions/syndromes can persist for years after vasectomy and affect as many as one in three vasectomized men. The range of PVPS pain can be mild/annoying to the less-likely extreme debilitating pain experienced by a smaller number of sufferers in this group. There is a continuum of pain severity between these two ...

Ruptures. Actually, the technical term for this phenomenon is a blowout. According to Campbell s Urology (a textbook for urology students and doctors) The brunt of pressure-induced damage after vasectomy falls on the epididymis and efferent ductules . It is likely that, in time, all vasectomized men develop blowouts in either the epididymis or efferent ducts. This rupturing can occur spontaneously at any time following vasectomy, and often when the epididymis is under pressure, such as when a man is ejaculating. It doesn t feel good.. Autoimmune Responses. But that s not all. When the rupturing occurs, sperm cells enter the blood stream, where they were not naturally intended to be. As a matter of fact, nature makes a very specific point of keeping sperm cells out of the blood stream, because sperm cells have very strong enzymes on their surfaces and only half a DNA strand. What does the body think is happening? The immune system is sent on full alert to fight off a perceived infection of ...

Vasectomy is a surgical procedure that stops the flow of sperm from the testicles to the urethra, causing the man to become sterile. The procedure is commonly done in two steps: First the surgeon must locate the vas deferens--the narrow tube that conveys sperm from the epididymis to the ejaculatory duct--and isolate it from the scrotum. Then, it must be obstructed (or occluded) so that the sperm cant flow to the testicles. A local anesthetic eliminates pain during the procedure, and post-surgical pain typically lasts just a few days and can be treated with ice or over-the-counter medications (such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen).. In most instances, vasectomies are performed by a urologist in an outpatient setting such as a clinic or office, and can be completed in less than 30 minutes. Costs range from $300 to more than $5,000, and are covered or reimbursed by many health insurance programs..
