Have the AUA’s 2012 vasectomy guidelines affected postprocedure follow-up?

Investigators observed a decline in the number of men obtaining repeat postvasectomy semen analyses.

In this interview, Tony Chen, MD, and Kevin A. Ostrowski, MD, discuss findings from the Urology Practice paper, “Association of the 2012 American Urological Association Vasectomy Guidelines with National Trends in Vasectomy Followup in the United States,” for which they served as study authors. Chen is a male reproductive health fellow at Stanford University, and Ostrowski is a urologist in group practice in Kirkland and Seattle.
