Abstract

Vasectomy is a safe, permanent, and inexpensive method of surgical contraception for men. The NSV offers an improved approach to exposing the vas that is associated with fewer complications such as hematoma and infection. NSV is well-suited to the outpatient setting, and an increasing number of physicians are learning how to perform the procedure, which was introduced into this country in 1986. In addition to learning the technical aspects of the procedure, physicians should become skilled in patient counseling concerning the NSV procedure, its alternatives, and its risks.
