Introduction

Sterilization male, also known as vasectomy, is a surgical procedure that involves cutting or blocking the vas deferens, the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra. This procedure is considered a permanent form of contraception and is highly effective in preventing pregnancy. The aim of this guide is to provide an overview of the symptoms, causes, diagnostic steps, possible interventions, and follow-up care for this procedure.

Codes

– ICPC-2 Code: Y13 Sterilization male
– ICD-10 Code: Z30.2 Sterilization

Symptoms

  • No specific symptoms are associated with sterilization male, as it is a voluntary surgical procedure performed for contraception purposes.

Causes

  • The main cause of sterilization male is the intentional disruption of the vas deferens, which prevents sperm from reaching the semen ejaculated during sexual intercourse.

Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Obtain a detailed medical history, including information about the patient’s reproductive health, previous contraceptive methods used, and desire for future fertility.

Physical Examination

  • Perform a physical examination to assess the patient’s overall health and suitability for the procedure. This may include evaluating the genital area, assessing vital signs, and checking for any signs of infection or inflammation.

Laboratory Tests

  • No specific laboratory tests are required for the diagnosis of sterilization male.

Diagnostic Imaging

  • No diagnostic imaging studies are necessary for the diagnosis of sterilization male.

Other Tests

  • No other diagnostic tests are needed for the diagnosis of sterilization male.

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor the patient’s recovery and discuss any concerns or complications that may arise.
  • Provide appropriate patient education regarding post-operative care, potential side effects, and the permanence of the procedure.

Possible Interventions

Traditional Interventions

Surgical Procedure: Vasectomy

  • Vasectomy is a surgical procedure that involves cutting or blocking the vas deferens, the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra.
  • The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia, depending on the patient’s preference and the surgeon’s recommendation.
  • The surgeon makes one or two small incisions in the scrotum and either cuts and seals the vas deferens or blocks them with clips or sutures.
  • The procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis and takes about 15-30 minutes.
  • Recovery time is relatively short, with most patients able to resume normal activities within a few days.
  • Vasectomy is considered a permanent form of contraception, but it may take several months or ejaculations to clear any remaining sperm from the vas deferens. Therefore, alternative forms of contraception should be used until a follow-up semen analysis confirms the absence of sperm.
