Similarly, the data on Table IV suggest that as sperm cells traverse the vas deferens a decrease of intact spermatozoa occurs whereas those undergoing acrosomal reaction increase.
They sequentially injected four layers of materials into the vas deferens: a hydrogel that forms a physical barrier to sperm; gold nanoparticles, which heat up when irradiated with near-infrared light; ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA), a chemical that breaks down the hydrogel and also kills sperm; and finally, another layer of gold nanoparticles.
There is a three-month waiting period, to allow one to be sure that the sperm that had lined up in the vas deferens above the cut have all come out or died.
8 For unilateral or bilateral absence of vas deferens ultrasonography was used.
There was no case of any complication associated with trocar access or injury to vas deferens and gonadal vessels peroperatively.In follow up, n=2 (4%) had recurrence of ipsilateral operated hernia and there was no case of matachronous contralateral inguinal hernia in patients operated on one side.
Total RNA was extracted from the distal section of the terminal ampules (Amp) (Alfaro-Montoya & Hernandez, 2012; Alfaro-Montoya et al., 2016), and from other tissues such as sperm duct section from medial descending and ascending vas deferens (Sd), abdominal muscle (Ms) and hepatopancreas (Hp).
The innervation of the vas deferens originates from the genitofemoral nerve of the genitalia, pelvic, and testicular plexus.

The ductus deferens was isolated and double ligated and then separated (Fig.
In men, all the sperm swim through one tiny tube, the vas deferens. So rather than shut them off at the source, we should disrupt their transit.
