Abstract
The contraception practice rate in Korea has steadily increased from 9% in
1964 to 72% in 1987. Accordingly, natural increase rate of population declined from 28.4 per
1,000 in 1964 to 12.4 per 1,000 in 1987. Notably in recent years, the acceptance of surgical
contraception seIVices has sharply increased in this country. Now the author analyzes various
factors influencing successful vasectomy based on his experience in performing more than
8,000 vasectomies and 1,000 vasovasostomies during the past 25 years. These various factors
consist of preoperative screening inteIView, surgical vasectomy technique, vas irrigation technique,
open-ended vasectomy, complications from vasectomy, failure of vasectomy, sperm
granuloma formation, spermatogenesis and steroidogenesis after vasectomy, immunological
consequences after vasectomy, prostatic diseases and vasectomy, late post-vasectomy syndrome,
psychological effects after vasectomy and success rates of vasovasostomy. Besides, the
author makes more comments on the results of the clinical trials on new approaches to
reversible vas occlusion technique with a new device of Intravasal Thread and to reversible
suppression of spermatogenesis with long-acting sex hormones.
