Four hundred and fifty cases were operated for vasectomy by pre-pubic approach. The relative fixity of vas at this place made this approach easier than conventional scrotal approach. Mean healing duration was 6.06 days. This approach leaves the scrotum free, needs no scrotal support and scrotum is not involved in hematoma and inflammatory complications. Thus the pre-pubic approach for vasectomy provides a superior and beneficial alternative to conventional scrotal approach.
