Dear Bandy

Success of reversal depends on the definition of success. If it is simply to secure the presence of sperm in the ejaculate then this would be a high figure of close to 90%. However if the intention is natural conception, unfortunately this figure is extremely low and in most cases will need assisted reproductive technology such as IVF/ICSI. The costs of reversal is variable from centre to centre and if conception is desired then added cost of invitro fertilisation needs to be factored into the cost benefit analysis.
