Vasectomy has long been a safe, effective, easy-to-perform method of contraception for men. Since the 1980s, EngenderHealth has promoted no-scalpel vasectomy, a refined approach to the vas that makes vasectomy simpler for the surgeon to perform and more acceptable to the client. Since its release in 1992, No-Scalpel Vasectomy: An Illustrated Guide for Surgeons has been one of EngenderHealth’s most successful publications, and has been a critical part of no-scalpel vasectomy training efforts globally.
No-Scalpel Vasectomy: An Illustrated Guide for Surgeons, Third Edition, is an easy-to-use reference for surgeons that describes each step of the no-scalpel approach, and is useful both as a supplement during no-scalpel vasectomy training and as a reference while surgeons develop competency. The latest edition incorporates updated content and revised and improved illustrations. In particular, this edition of the illustrated guide contains an expanded description of ligation and excision with fascial interposition, the technique that is now regarded as offering the highest effectiveness.
