ABSTRACT

Antecedents: different vasectomy methods have received considerable attention in recent years; no-scalpel vasectomy (NSV) is a new and refined technique with advantages over traditional procedures that involve incisions.
Objective: to determine effectiveness and to examine social factors associated with NSV.
Design: descriptive study of a retrospective cohort. Setting: Hospital General de Zona 1, Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social (IMSS) at Colima City, Colima, Mexico.
Patients and methods: the records of a series of 395 consecutive patients admitted for Li Shun Qiang-technique NSV surgery at the Family Medicine Clinic 1 were analyzed. Epidemiologic and social variables were evaluated, as well as effectiveness and complications, and participants were asked to return for semen analysis until they were azoospermic.
Results: average age of males undergoing NSV was 33.9 ± 7 years, with an average of 3 ± 1 chil-dren, in addition to a minimum of patients (4.3 %) without complete elementary education and with 97.7 % of patients with well-remunerated employment. Incidence of complications in this series of vasectomies was extremely low, virtually the same as that reported in other series. A total of 99.8 % of patients showed complete azoospermia on semen analysis.
Conclusions: NSV is a rapid and refined vasectomy technique with an extremely low rate of complications; in addition, effective results appear to increase patient acceptability.


Key words: non-scalpel vasectomy, family planning.
