Vasectomy reversal

Vasectomy reversal

A vasectomy reversal is performed to restore fertility following a vasectomy. It involves reconnection of the vas deferens to take the sperm into the ejaculated semen. Two common techniques for vasectomy reversal are vasovasotomy and vasoepididymostomy. A vasovasotomy is a commonly used technique. Small cuts are made following the vasectomy scars and an incision is placed in the middle of the scrotum as well. Vas deferens tubes are located and scar tissue is removed. Tubes are reconnected if they contain fluid and placed back in their position. This procedure normally takes 2 - 3 hours and is performed under local anaesthisia. Vasoepididymostomy is microsurgery and is a technically more demanding procedure than a vasovasostomy. It takes approx. 4 hours to complete and is performed under a general anaesthetic.
