Do you know the advantages of no-scalpel vasectomy?

No-scalpel vasectomy is a minimally invasive technique, which is performed under local anesthesia and on an outpatient basis, using forceps with a ring and a lancing device.

Once the vas deferens is “trapped”, a tiny hole is made in the skin to exteriorize the duct so that it can be sectioned, ligated, coagulated, etc.

In addition, it can be performed through a single hole in the midline of the scrotum, which is even less invasive. At the end, the hole can be closed or not with 1 resorbable stitch.

What are the advantages over conventional vasectomy?

Since it is less invasive, it has a lower postoperative complication rate:

  • Bleeding
  • Hematoma
  • Inflammation
  • Infection

In addition, it guarantees a faster recovery with less postoperative discomfort.

What is the postoperative period like? What care should the patient follow after the operation?

The patient goes home walking. He must wear a tight-fitting brief for the first month.

The wound only requires daily washing and application of Betadine for 3-4 days. After 3 days you can have intercourse or ejaculation, but maintaining the same contraceptive measures.

A semen analysis is requested at 3 and 6 months. If the second analysis is negative, the patient can abandon the contraceptive measures.
