181. Alteration in testicular cyclic AMP system in the rat following vasectomy. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Alteration in testicular cyclic AMP system in the rat following vasectomy. Endogenous cyclic AMP levels and the activities of adenylate cyclase, cyclic AMP-dependent and independent protein kinases were examined in testes of mature rats bilaterally vasectomized for one, three and seven months. Although no significant alteration in testicular cyclic AMP was detected one month following vasectomy, marked decreases (by 55% and 32%, respectively) were seen three and seven months postvasectomy (...) . Likewise, vasectomy also resulted in a significant decrease (by 25%) in the activity of testicular adenylate cyclase three and seven months after vasectomy. Although soluble cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase activity remained unaffected three months postvasectomy, the activity of the cyclic nucleotide-dependent enzyme was significantly increased (by 21%) when compared to the sham-operated controls. Furthermore, while the protein kinase ratio (--cyclic AMP/+cyclic AMP) was decreased in animals

Post-vasectomy autoimmunity to protamines in relation to the formation of granulomas and sperm agglutinating antibodies. 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

Peroperative irrigation of the vas deferens during vasectomy. In 59 consecutive vasectomies for the purpose of sterilization, one-half, chosen by random numbers, received an irrigation of the vas deferens with 40 ml of sterile water on each side. Afterwards, the men sent in every fourth ejaculation, until two consecutive samples were without spermatozoa. The postoperative sperm samples were examined microscopically without knowing whether the man belonged to the treated group or the control

190. Vasectomy Reversal Provides Long-Term Pain Relief for Men With the Post-Vasectomy Pain Syndrome. (Abstract)

Vasectomy Reversal Provides Long-Term Pain Relief for Men With the Post-Vasectomy Pain Syndrome. The post-vasectomy pain syndrome is a rare but serious and debilitating complication of vasectomy. For men with the post-vasectomy pain syndrome vasectomy reversal is a surgical option after medical management has failed. However, there is a paucity of data in the literature defining its therapeutic efficacy. In this study we better define the role and effect of vasectomy reversal in the treatment (...) of men with the post-vasectomy pain syndrome.Three urologists in Toronto, Ontario performed 149 publically funded vasectomy reversals between January 2000 and September 2010. The electronic health records were reviewed and 23 of the 149 (15%) procedures were performed for the post-vasectomy pain syndrome. Of these men who underwent 14 vasovasostomies 13 completed a telephone conducted questionnaire (response rate 56%). Patient demographics, preoperative and postoperative pain scores, and quality

191. Vasectomy: A Survey of Attitudes, Counseling Patterns and Acceptance among Nigerian Resident Gynaecologists Full Text available with Trip Pro

Vasectomy: A Survey of Attitudes, Counseling Patterns and Acceptance among Nigerian Resident Gynaecologists Previous Nigerian studies show widespread ignorance and low acceptance of vasectomy among the male population. The objectives of this study were to determine the level of knowledge of, attitudes to, counselling pattern and acceptance of vasectomy among Nigerian Resident Gynaecologists.A cross-sectional questionnaire based survey.Resident Doctors attending a national update course (...) in obstetrics and gynaecology.Most of the doctors had good knowledge of Vasectomy. More than four-fifth of the doctors were convinced that the average Nigerian male will not accept vasectomy when indicated while more than three-fifth consider BTL a more appropriate option for permanent contraception in our setting. Forty one point three percent of the doctors will opt for vasectomy or urge their husbands to. Reasons for opposition to vasectomy were socio-cultural (21.3%), religious (13.1%) and psychological

192. A novel cost-effective approach to post-vasectomy semen analysis. (Abstract)

A novel cost-effective approach to post-vasectomy semen analysis. • To examine compliance, clearance rates and cost-effectiveness of a novel approach to managing men following vasectomy based on the testing of sperm viability.• Between January 2003 and March 2005, 832 men undergoing vasectomy were followed prospectively for a minimum of 12 months. • Post-vasectomy semen analysis (PVSA) was carried out at 16 weeks with repeat at 20 weeks only if sperm were detected on initial PVSA i.e. a single (...) clear PVSA on simple microscopy was deemed sufficient for declaring vasectomy successful. • In men with persistent non-motile sperm (PNMS) in the second specimen, comprehensive analysis of number and viability of sperm using a fluorescent probe was carried out on a fresh semen specimen taken in accordance with British Andrology Society (BAS) guidelines.• Overall compliance with the PVSA protocol was 81.3% (95% CI 78.5 to 83.8). No sperm were seen in 540 (78.8%) and 70 (10.3%) at the initial and 2(nd

193. Nomograms to Predict Patency After Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversal. (Abstract)

Nomograms to Predict Patency After Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversal. After undergoing vasectomy up to 6% of men will elect to undergo vasectomy reversal. For these men paternity can be achieved with vasectomy reversal or surgical sperm retrieval coupled with assisted reproduction. Nevertheless, it remains difficult for surgeons to accurately counsel men on the chance of patency after vasectomy reversal.A retrospective review was conducted of 548 patients who underwent microsurgical vasectomy (...) reversal. Surgery was considered successful if sperm concentration was 100,000 or more sperm per ml, total count was 100,000 or more sperm per ejaculate, motile sperm were present and there was no evidence of subsequent failure. A multivariate logistic regression model was constructed to calculate the probability of having a successful vasectomy reversal and nomograms for patency were generated from this model.A total of 548 patients met the inclusion criteria for this study. Mean followup was 1.8

194. Contraceptive sterilization among married adults: national data on who chooses vasectomy and tubal sterilization. (Abstract)

Contraceptive sterilization among married adults: national data on who chooses vasectomy and tubal sterilization. Vasectomy has been found to be a highly cost-effective contraceptive method. For couples, tubal sterilization and vasectomy have the same result, but the two methods are used by different segments of the population.We conducted an analysis of data from male and female samples of the 2006-2008 National Survey of Family Growth, nationally representative samples of men and women (...) in the United States aged 15-44 years.Among married men, 13.1% reported vasectomies (95% confidence interval 10.4%-16.3%), compared to 21.1% (17.8%-24.9%) of married women who reported tubal sterilizations. Men with higher education and income had greater prevalence of vasectomy than those less educated, while women with lower education and income had the highest prevalence of tubal sterilization.Efforts to promote vasectomy use need to understand the reasons behind these differences.

195. Nomogram to Preoperatively Predict the Probability of Requiring Epididymovasostomy During Vasectomy Reversal. (Abstract)

Nomogram to Preoperatively Predict the Probability of Requiring Epididymovasostomy During Vasectomy Reversal. Up to 6% of men who undergo vasectomy may later undergo vasectomy reversal. Most men require vasovasostomy but a smaller subset requires epididymovasostomy. Outcomes of epididymovasostomy depend highly on specialized training in microsurgery and, if predicted preoperatively, might warrant referral to a specialist in this field. We created a nomogram based on preoperative patient (...) characteristics to better predict the need for epididymovasostomy.We evaluated patients who underwent primary vasectomy reversal during a 5-year period. Preoperative and intraoperative patient data were collected in a prospectively maintained database. We evaluated the ability of age, years since vasectomy, vasectomy site, epididymal fullness and granuloma presence or absence to preoperatively predict the need for epididymovasostomy in a given patient. The step-down method was used to create a parsimonious

Cytokine Responses to E. coli-induced Epididymitis in the Rat: Blockade by Vasectomy. To determine cytokine responses in rat epididymal tissues after retrograde Escherichia coli inoculation of the cauda epididymidis via the intact and obstructed vas deferens.Adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into 3 groups: bilateral sham vasectomy followed by unilateral sham retrograde inoculation in the vas deferens (group A), bilateral sham vasectomy followed by unilateral retrograde inoculation (...) of E. coli (group B), and bilateral vasectomy followed by left-sided inoculation of E. coli (group C). Three days later, the cauda epididymides and proximal vasa were subjected to histologic examination and assay for 9 cytokines.Groups A and C showed no histologic evidence of epididymal inflammation. Group B had leukocyte infiltrates in the inoculated tissue. Cytokine levels in the injected cauda epididymides were low in groups A and C; however, interleukin (IL)-1α, IL-1β, and IL-4 were

197. Vasectomy: the other (better) form of sterilization. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Vasectomy: the other (better) form of sterilization. Male sterilization (vasectomy) is the most effective form and only long-acting form of contraception available to men in the United States. Compared to female sterilization, it is more efficacious, more cost-effective, and has lower rates of complications. Despite these advantages, in the United States, vasectomy is utilized at less than half the rate of female sterilization. In addition, vasectomy is least utilized among black and Latino (...) populations, groups with the highest rates of female sterilization. This review provides an overview of vasectomy use and techniques, and explores reasons for the disparity in vasectomy utilization in the United States.Copyright © 2011 Elsevier Inc.

Use of text messaging to audit early clinical outcome following vasectomy in primary care. Fifty patients undergoing vasectomy at community-based day surgery clinics in Grampian were invited to participate in follow-up by text message. Forty-six (92%) of the patients responded, 14 reporting problems, generally of a minor nature, but severe enough to result in unscheduled time off work (n = 4) and oral antibiotic therapy (n = 5). Text messaging appears to be a useful form of communication

199. Increased Follicle-Stimulating Hormone is Associated With Higher Assisted Reproduction Use After Vasectomy Reversal. (Abstract)

Increased Follicle-Stimulating Hormone is Associated With Higher Assisted Reproduction Use After Vasectomy Reversal. Of men with vasectomy 6% elect to have more children. When considering vasectomy reversal vs in vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection, an elucidation of preoperative factors that predict surgical success would help determine appropriate management. We tested the hypothesis that preoperative follicle-stimulating hormone 10 U/l or greater predict a lower paternity (...) rate after vasectomy reversal.Using preoperative follicle-stimulating hormone levels we retrospectively reviewed the records of patients who underwent vasectomy reversal. Follicle-stimulating hormone was measured in cases suspicious for impaired spermatogenesis. The final analysis included 206 men, who were divided by follicle-stimulating hormone less than 10 U/l (normal in 155) and 10 U/l or greater (high in 51). Nominal logistic regression was performed to evaluate assisted reproduction
