(Strength of Recommendation: A, based on systematic reviews, mixed-quality randomized controlled trials [RCTs], cohort studies, and case-control series.) The NSV technique is associated with fewer complications, produces less perioperative and postoperative pain, results in quicker recovery, takes less time to perform, and is as effective as standard incisional vasectomy.

3. The effect of vasectomy reversal on prostate cancer risk: International meta-analysis of 684,660 men with vasectomies. (PubMed)

The effect of vasectomy reversal on prostate cancer risk: International meta-analysis of 684,660 men with vasectomies. Evidence of the effect of vasectomy on prostate cancer is conflicting with the issue of detection bias a key criticism. We examined the effect of vasectomy reversal on prostate cancer risk in a cohort of vasectomized men. Evidence of a protective effect would be consistent with a harmful effect of vasectomy on prostate cancer risk while nullifying the issue of detection (...) bias.Data were sourced from a total of 5 population level linked health databases in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. Cox proportional hazards regression analysis was used to compare the risk of prostate cancer in 9,754 men with vasectomy reversal to the risk in 684,660 with vasectomy but no reversal. Data from each jurisdiction were combined in a meta-analysis.The combined analysis showed no protective effect of vasectomy reversal on the incidence of prostate cancer compared to that in men

CUA guideline: Vasectomy CUAJ • July-August 2016 • Volume 10, Issues 7-8 © 2016 Canadian Urological Association E274 GUIDELINE CUA guideline: Vasectomy Cite as: Can Urol Assoc J 2016;10(7-8):E274-8. http://dx.doi.org/10.5489/cuaj.4017 Published online August 16, 2016 Introduction Vasectomy is a safe and effective method of birth control. Although it is a simple elective procedure, vasectomy is associated with potential minor and major complications. The early failure rate of vasectomy (presence (...) of motile sperm in the ejaculate at 3–6 months post-vasectomy) is in the range of 0.3–9% and the late failure rate is in the range of 0.04–0.08%. The no-scalpel vasectomy technique is associ- ated with a lower risk of early postoperative complications and the use of cautery or fascial interposition will reduce the risk of contraceptive failure. As such, detailed preoperative counselling and careful assessment of the post-vasectomy ejaculate (for presence of sperm) is imperative. Failure to provide

5. Vasectomy Practice Patterns among Family Medicine Physicians and Compliance with the AUA 2012 Vasectomy Guidelines. (PubMed)

Vasectomy Practice Patterns among Family Medicine Physicians and Compliance with the AUA 2012 Vasectomy Guidelines. To survey urologists and family medicine physicians (FMPs) within a single institution to determine current vasectomy practice patterns and determine compliance with 2012 American Urological Association (AUA) vasectomy guidelines.In 2016, a single-institution survey was conducted to understand the vasectomy practice patterns among urologists and nonurologists. The survey questions (...) and 3 clinical scenarios were designed based on the 2012 AUA vasectomy guidelines. Results of the survey were compiled between urologists and nonurologists and then compared with the guideline recommendations.A total of 23 FMPs and 6 urologists responded. Fewer prevasectomy counseling topics were discussed by FMPs compared with urologists. A variety of vasectomy techniques were used among FMPs. Vas deferens segments were more likely to be sent for histology by FMPs than urologists (65% vs 17%, P

6. Vasectomy reversal for post-vasectomy pain syndrome (PubMed)

Vasectomy reversal for post-vasectomy pain syndrome Post-vasectomy pain syndrome (PVPS) is a rare, but devastating outcome following vasectomy. Given the widespread utilization of vasectomy for permanent contraception, with more than 500,000 procedures performed annually in the United States, it can be a significant challenge for both patients and providers. Vasectomy reversal is a surgical option for men who fail conservative or medical management. Despite improvements in technique, vasectomy (...) carries some inherent risks making pre-procedure counseling regarding the risks of PVPS paramount. Chronic post-operative pain, or PVPS, occurs in 1-2% of men undergoing the procedure. This review will examine the utility of vasectomy reversal as a means of addressing PVPS.

7. Scalpel versus no-scalpel incision for vasectomy. (PubMed)

Scalpel versus no-scalpel incision for vasectomy. Currently, the two most common surgical techniques for approaching the vas during vasectomy are the incisional method and the no-scalpel technique. Whereas the conventional incisional technique involves the use of a scalpel to make one or two incisions, the no-scalpel technique uses a sharp-pointed, forceps-like instrument to puncture the skin. The no-scalpel technique aims to reduce adverse events, especially bleeding, bruising, hematoma (...) with the no-scalpel technique (OR 0.23; 95% CI 0.15 to 0.36). Operations using the no-scalpel approach were faster and had a quicker resumption of sexual activity. The smaller study did not find these differences; however, the study could have failed to detect differences due to a small sample size as well as a high loss to follow up. Neither trial found differences in vasectomy effectiveness between the two approaches to the vas.The no-scalpel approach to the vas resulted in less bleeding, hematoma, infection

8. Vasectomy occlusion techniques for male sterilization. (PubMed)

Vasectomy occlusion techniques for male sterilization. Vasectomy is an increasingly popular and effective family planning method. A variety of vasectomy techniques are used worldwide, including vas occlusion techniques (excision and ligation, thermal or electrocautery, and mechanical and chemical occlusion methods), as well as vasectomy with vas irrigation or with fascial interposition. Vasectomy guidelines largely rely on information from observational studies. Ideally, the choice of vasectomy (...) techniques should be based on the evidence from randomized controlled trials (RCTs).The objective of this review was to compare the effectiveness, safety, acceptability and costs of vasectomy techniques for male sterilization.In February 2014, we updated the searches of CENTRAL, MEDLINE, POPLINE and LILACS. We looked for recent clinical trials in ClinicalTrials.gov and the International Clinical Trials Registry Platform. Previous searches also included EMBASE. For the initial review, we searched

10. Vasectomy and Prostate Cancer Risk in the European Prospective Investigation Into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC)

Vasectomy and Prostate Cancer Risk in the European Prospective Investigation Into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) Purpose Vasectomy is a commonly used form of male sterilization, and some studies have suggested that it may be associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer, including more aggressive forms of the disease. We investigated the prospective association of vasectomy with prostate cancer in a large European cohort, with a focus on high-grade and advanced-stage tumors, and death due (...) to prostate cancer. Patients and Methods A total of 84,753 men from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC), aged 35 to 79 years, provided information on vasectomy status (15% with vasectomy) at recruitment and were followed for incidence of prostate cancer and death. We estimated the association of vasectomy with prostate cancer risk overall, by tumor subtype, and for death due to prostate cancer, using multivariable-adjusted Cox proportional hazards models.

13. Routine Prescription of Opioids for Post-vasectomy Pain Control Associated with Persistent Use. (PubMed)

Routine Prescription of Opioids for Post-vasectomy Pain Control Associated with Persistent Use. The AUA Position Statement on Opioid Use recommends using opioids only when necessary. We sought to determine if routine prescribing of opioids is necessary for pain control after vasectomy and if an association exists with persistent use.We performed a retrospective chart review of patients who underwent clinic vasectomy between April 2017 and March 2018. Patients were stratified into two groups (...) , those initially prescribed opioids and those not receiving opioid prescriptions at time of vasectomy. The initial pain medication regimen was dependent on each provider's standard prescription practices. Encounters with a medical provider for scrotal pain within 30 days, subsequent opioid prescriptions, and new persistent opioid prescriptions between 90-180 days were compared between the two groups using Fisher's exact test.Between April 2017 and March 2018, 228 patients underwent clinic vasectomy

Long-term safety, health and mental status in men with vasectomy Vasectomy is an efficient male contraceptive method, but the long-term effects of this technology in a large population are unclear. To investigate the influence of vasectomy on long-term health effects, we recruited 485 men with a vasectomy and 1940 men without vasectomy in China. After obtaining basic information from the Aging Males' Symptoms (AMS) scale and other questionnaires, peripheral blood was drawn to assess the hormone (...) levels, prostate specific antigen (PSA) and blood biochemistry. Using multiple linear regression analysis, these factors had no relationship with vasectomy except for four factors including the Somatic score (0.31, 0.02 and 0.61) in AMS, SF-36 score (-18.8, -32.00 and -5.60), "Role emotional" (-6.28, -10.34 and -2.22) and "Mental health" (-1.55, -3.08 and -0.02).
