What is an Epididymovasostomy?
For patients who may not be a good candidate for a Vasovasostomy, this microsurgery method is called Epididymovasostomy.
Epididymovasostomy is reversing a vasectomy in a highly complicated procedure and surgeons must be specialty trained. Epididymovasostomy is reserved for patients who has poor sperm flow, possibly due to a blockage. If the doctor finds an obstruction or damage to the vas deferen, he will then opt for this second type of procedure. The Epididymovasostomy microsurgery consists of connecting the vas deferens to the epididymis to bypass obstruction. It is performed in an attempt to cure azoospermia caused by blockage. Often a person who has had a vasectomy for a longer period of time may find this method to be more successful.
During a vasectomy, the vas deferens that carry sperm from the testicles to the seminal vesicles, are cut, tied, and or cauterized. While a vasectomy is considered to be a permanent solution for male sterilization, the procedure can be reversed- and highly successful if choosing a reverse vasectomy fellowship trained microsurgeon. This is a simpler procedure out of the two surgeries for a vasectomy reversal.
A Epididymovasostomy microsurgery is only used if the surgeon believes their to be some sort of blockage- if your vasectomy was relatively recent, and the vas to vas connection works, where the doctor sees a nice flow of sperm, this method will not be required. You will have a simpler procedure called a Vasovasostomy.
