The possibility of a successful reversal of sterilisation following vasectomy is vital in the promotion of sterilisation, particularly in developing countries. The results of the conventional method of splinted anastomosis have been significantly improved by the introduction of microsurgical techniques. This is a review of the author's experience of applied microsurgical techniques, including the method of anastomosis with one-layer suturing used in 382 patients out of a total of 610 recanalisations since 1974. The technique is easy to apply and a patency rate of 89 percent and a pregnancy rate of 63.2 percent have been recorded.
