Title
(EN) VASECTOMY DEVICES AND METHODS FOR THEIR USE
(FR) DISPOSITIFS DE VASECTOMIE ET LEURS PROCÉDÉS D’UTILISATION
Abstract
(EN)
Conventional vasectomy techniques suffer from a number of disadvantages, including, for example, a substantial risk for the development of hematomas and swelling, a potential for spontaneous regeneration and undesired resumption of fertility, a need for a highly skilled surgical professional, as well as a long recovery period, accompanied by severe limitations on post-surgical activity. The present invention overcomes the disadvantages and deficiencies of the prior art by providing a rapid, reliable, less invasive male sterilization procedure as well as vasectomy instruments and kits for use therewith.
(FR)
Les techniques classiques de vasectomie pâtissent d'un certain nombre d'inconvénients, comprenant, par exemple, un risque important de développement d'hématomes et de gonflement, un potentiel pour une régénération spontanée et une reprise non souhaitée de la fertilité, un besoin d'un professionnel chirurgical très qualifié, ainsi qu'une longue période de récupération, accompagnée par des limitations importantes sur l'activité post-chirurgicale. La présente invention surmonte les inconvénients et les déficiences de l’état de la technique en fournissant une procédure de stérilisation masculine rapide, fiable, moins invasive ainsi que des instruments et des kits de vasectomie pour une utilisation avec ceux-ci.
