A review of 357 bilateral vasectomies for male sterilization.

A series of 357 bilateral vasectomies for male sterilization performed over a period of 18 months was reviewed to assess the safety of the surgical procedure, the onset of sterility, and the acceptability of the procedure. The surgical procedure proved to be safe with few complications, the patients became sterile after approximately 82 days, and the acceptability was very good. A group of 34 patients (10.8%) had a delay in the onset of aspermia. This is discussed in relation to the findings of other investigators.
