Vasectomy Reversal for Postvasectomy
Pain Syndrome: A Study and Literature Review.
Clinical testing was performed using 350 clinical specimens (fresh and cryopreserved), and different categories of specimens were evaluated, i.e., specimens with sperm counts above and below the WHO threshold of 15 million sperm/mL, specimens with sperm counts below 100000 sperm/mL (important for postvasectomy
procedure applications), specimens with sperm motility below the WHO threshold of 40%, and specimens abnormal for both sperm count and motility.
For example, there is a dearth of research on and discussion of postvasectomy
OA has been extensively reported by many authors, primary OA (unrelated to a prior vasectomy) is present in about 3%-6% of all infertile men and most frequently is produced by epididymal obstruction .
Men aged 18 to 55 without postvasectomy
status participated in the study.
Men between 18 and 55 years of age without postvasectomy
status who presented to the Andrology Laboratory were eligible to participate.
(10) However, a subgroup of patients who reported postvasectomy testicular pain did not achieve a 50% symptomatic improvement rate with either TCA or gabapentin therapy.
(11) The specific cause of long-term postvasectomy pain syndrome, or congestive epididymitis, is unknown, but has been reported in 5% to 43% of men who have undergone this procedure.
He was given an ultrasound with color Doppler and found to have postvasectomy surgical changes consistent with bilateral spermatoceles, but no evidence of epididymitis or a mass.
Men 18-55 years of age, who were not postvasectomy
, were eligible to participate.
In 10 samples of seminal plasma obtained from patients who had a postvasectomy
checkup, an average activity of 1702.3 U/L was found (interval: 1045.2-2973.8 U/L), with a Hex B percentage of 66.2% (interval: 60.5-73.0%).
Orchitis was diagnosed when postvasectomy
inflammation was confined to the testes.
