Vasectomy Reversal Success Rates
Several factors affect the chances of success including:
- surgical technique and quality of reversal operation
- surgical technique of original vasectomy
- time elapsed since vasectomy
- presence of antisperm antibodies
Success is generally defined as the presence of viable spermatozoa in a postoperative semen sample. There is a steady decline in success rate as the time since the vasectomy increases.
The overall success rate in Mr Swinn's series at The Vasectomy Reversal Clinic is very good. For those whose vasectomy was carried out within the previous 4 years of the reversal operation, the success rate is higher than 90%. Although the success rate declines with the passage of time since the vasectomy, stunning successes have been achieved at The Vasectomy Reversal Clinic for those undergoing a microsurgical reversal of vasectomy even after more than 20 years after the vasectomy.
