Inversive Vasectomy: Guarantees to Restoration
This procedure implies the condition when it is possible to return possibility to conceiving in some period of time. Five years should pass from the moment of sterilization. Successful combination of ducts through seminal passage is observed in 60% of cases. The result mainly depends on characteristics of the main procedure, applied equipment and technics, and skills of a surgeon.
On the expiry of ten years after procedure, only 15% of successful fertility restoration cases may be met. Sterilization of men at the age of 40-45 years causes the process of testicles atrophy, whereas there are almost no possibilities of action reversibility. So, one shouldn’t think that this surgical intrusion has reversal. Many modern hospitals offer this procedure. But in fact, restoration of duct after vasectomy is impossible in most cases. For this purpose, a man should consult a specialist before taking such a serious decision. In case the decision is made, a patient must study the history of hospitals offering this operation. Only after that, you may consult a surgeon.
Key Point of Vasectomy
Vasectomy helps men to prevent semen from penetration in composition of ejaculate. Mixture of sexual cells and secretion occurs in spermoduct. Laceration of the part of this duct prevents cells from getting into fluid. Moreover, semen becomes sterile.
This surgical intervention is not similar to castration in its effect. During this type of sterilization, male couple reproductive glands are cut up. Production of semen in them stops. This operation doesn’t cause the loss of testicles. Men preserve both sexual glands which continue normally functioning. Due to this fact sterilization doesn’t cause changes in hormonal profile of a man. All functions of sexual organs are preserved.
Also, many patients who underwent vasectomy state that their sexual activity level increased. This phenomenon is observed in case of testosterone level in blood normalization.
Causes for Surgical Sterilization
Many patients come to this decision independently.
There are many reasons for that including the flowing factors:
- Unwilling to have heirs;
- Genetic problems;
The main reason to apply to a doctor for surgical sterilization is unwilling to have heirs. This reason often occurs in families with many children. This intervention is recommended for parents as a contraception method. Before operation, a surgeon should warn a patent of non-restoration of spermoduct. In case a decision is well-thought and confirmed by all members of the family, a man undergoes vasectomy.
Rare cause is presence of various genetic diseases. Such patients transmit the pathological condition from one generation to another. In this case, genetic chain should be broken by means of vasectomy.
Also, operation is offered to men who have allergies to various contraception methods. Young men must not resort to this method. In case vasectomy was conducted long ago, infertility preserves for lifetime.
Before undergoing vasectomy, a patient should be thoroughly prepared. In order to confirm that a patient is healthy, he should pass a number of tests and complex examination. Vasectomy is considered to be a fully-realized surgical action. Therefore, a patient is required to submit to urine and blood tests. These tests must exclude any inflammations, bacterial infections and other health problems in a patient.
It is not recommended taking alcoholic beverages several days before surgery. Ethanol-containing drinks cause different impairments in functioning of hematopoietic system and sexual glands. In order to eliminate adverse effects of operative intervention, alcohol intake should be stopped 5-7 days before surgery.
Also, condition of sexual system should be taken into account. In case there are various malfunctions in seminal glands work, surgery is not conducted. Vasectomy is possible only after elimination of adverse processes.
Before operation a full anamnesis of a patient is examined. Presence of chronic diseases may become a cause of refusal to operate a patient. Such diseases include diabetes, various hormonal impairments, and hypertension. After determination of patient’s condition, vasectomy is assigned. If a person has counter-indications, operation is called off.
Characteristics of Surgical Intervention
This operation is not considered to be complicated. A patient is required to refuse food and water several hours before vasectomy. It is important for avoiding complications during surgical action. Many doctors conduct vasectomy under local anesthesia. This allows minimizing influence of narcosis on activity of nervous system. Due to this fact a man easily recovers of anesthesia and returns to every-day life.
The beginning of operation lies in anesthetization of surgical field. Lidocaine is used for this purpose. Perineal zone is pricked all over with the drug in several points. Such anesthetization allows a patient to keep consciousness during operation. In order to get to perineal area, it is important to make a small discission on the low part of abdominal membrane. Its length doesn’t surpass 2-3cm. A surgeon penetrates into perineum via muscular tissues and gets to vas deferens. These channels have small size and volume. The ducts are pressed by compressor over an insignificant distance. This area is cut. The ducts’ endings are either connected or pressed with medical clips. They are produced of medical metal which is not rejected by organism. Also, it is not exposed to diverse oxidative reactions. After this manipulation, cosmetic stitch is made.
Generally, vasectomy lasts not longer than 20 minutes. After a surgery, a patient should stay at the hospital under supervision of a doctor for 24 hours. This time will be sufficient for a doctor to determine the way restoration process proceeds. If a patient has no adverse effects, a patient is discharged from hospital.
After vasectomy it is required to pass rehabilitation period, since this is a full-rate operation.
A patient is prohibited to effectuate the habitual manipulations:
- Increased motor performances;
- Sexual intercourse;
- Alcohol intake.
A full restoration occurs on second week after surgery. On this stage, a patient may return to every-day life. But he should pay much attention to contraception. Sterilization is considered to be fully-realized in a month after vasectomy. Semen still preserves active sexual cells. Their complete clearance occurs on 25-30 day. Before that, it is highly recommended using additional contraception.
Vasectomy is a simple and efficient method of protection against unwanted pregnancy. This operation doesn’t take adverse influence on patient’s health. Sexual function is completely preserved. Advantage of surgery is fast restoration. After operation, a patient may resume to his habitual lifestyle.
BUT! There are also some drawbacks. Some men report pathological processes on wound surface. Such changes occur because of incorrect care after post-operative suture. There an underlying risk of self-restoration of spermoduct. This phenomenon is observed with insignificant number of patient. In this case, restoration of spermoducts conductivity occurs. A man becomes non-sterile. In this case, a repetitive surgery will be required.
