V8-05: Single Incision Vasectomy Reversal (SIVR)
VideoIntroductions and Objectives
With the goal to reduce surgical morbidity following vasectomy reversal (VR), the current video highlights the Single Incision Vasectomy Reversal (SIVR) - An innovative approach to VR by which the entire procedure is performed through a single midline mini-incision.
A SIVR was considered in the absence of significant vasal gaps, large sperm granulomas, and/or limited mobility of the scrotal contents. As in the no-scalpel vasectomy (NSV), the SIVR begins by stabilizing the vas directly under the scrotal skin at the midline raphae. The NSV ring clamp is used to capture the vas in the midline at the vasectomy occlusion site. A single small (
