No Scalpel Vasectomy
Think of No Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV) as simply a way of ‘getting to’ the tubes via a single small hole in the middle.
There are two Vas Deferens, or simply ‘The Tubes.’ Sperm travel from each attached testicle towards the base of the bladder.
Upper End & Lower End
Each of the two tubes is divided, leaving two ends.
The upper end is the end nearest the groin, referred to as the abdominal end. The lower end is the end nearest the testicle, referred to as the testicular end.
Fascia, sounding like ‘Fasha,’ is the strong thin layer of connective tissue that lies just outside of the tubes.
The fascia covers the stump of one end whilst the other end is left outside the fascia.
Open Ended Vasectomy
The lower end is left open. The end result of fascial interposition to the upper end.
