Abstract

Family physicians frequently perform outpatient vasectomies. A new approach to exposing the vas deferens, called the no-scalpel vasectomy, results in fewer complications and, the authors believe, improved patient acceptance. This technique, which calls for two specialized instruments, is described, along with patient selection and education issues, vasal occlusion techniques and post-vasectomy follow-up.
