Irrigation of the vas with 0.1% ethacridine during vasectomy flushes the sperms and causes lysis from the distal genital tract, without any serious complication or side effect. In the light of this experience, it is suggested that this method can be used in all vasec­tomy operations carried out for primary sterilisation so as to pro­duce immediate sterility.
