The purpose of this research study is to study an experimental vasectomy device called the Vas-X. This is an experimental study of this new approach to vasectomy.

Study summary:

The Vas-X works by stripping the lining of the vas deferens, the tube that sperm pass through during ejaculation. It is used in a way very similar to routine vasectomy, however, in a routine vasectomy, the vas is burned with an electrical device. With the Vas-X, there is no burning. The investigators are testing the Vas-X to determine whether it will offer a better way of performing a vasectomy. The investigators will conduct this study at the University of Washington Medical Center, Seattle.


Inclusion Criteria: - healthy male with normal physical findings - normal testicular volume (15-30mL) - detectable sperm in ejaculates Exclusion Criteria: - Men with past history of - hypertension - significant cardiovascular - thromboembolic disorders - renal (including undiagnosed urinary tract bleeding) - hepatic, prostatic and testicular disease - prior vasectomy or scrotal surgery - infertility - Men with a past history of drug abuse will also be excluded.
