6- What type of anaesthetic is required?

For the best result, most vasectomy reversals require a general anaesthetic. While working under the high-powered surgical microscope, patients need to be completely still.

After ten years since a vasectomy, research tells us that there is about a 40% chance that a vasoepididymostomy will need to be performed on at least one side. There is a high chance that the vasovasostomy can be performed if the vasectomy reversal is performed within 10 years of the vasectomy.

Other determining factors include a large segment of the vas having been removed, cauterization or ligation (tying off) of both ends of the cut vas instead of just one (i.e. doing a closed ended vasectomy instead of open ended).
