(EN) AN APPARATUS FOR MALE CONTRACEPTION
(FR) APPAREIL DE CONTRACEPTION MASCULINE
Abstract
(EN) The present invention relates to a male contraception apparatus for obtaining a time-limited sterility of a male mammalian individual. The apparatus comprises an implantable restriction device adapted to restrict the lumen of a vas deferens of the mammalian. The restriction device comprises a mechanically or hydraulically operable constriction device adapted to constrict a selected first wall portion of the lumen of the vas deferens to a constricted state. The apparatus further comprises a controller (600) operable to control the mechanically or hydraulically operable constriction device to constrict the selected first wall portion to a constricted state during a controlled period to prevent sperms from reaching the urethra of the mammalian individual.
