A comparison of local and general anesthesia for laparoscopic tubal sterilization.

TLDR
The quinacrine pellet method requires technical skills similar to those for IUD insertions and a large and increasing number of nurses are quite competent to carry this out, especially in developing countries, so the potential access to this method is, therefore, very large.
Quinacrine nonsurgical female sterilization : safety and efficacy a reassessment of
TLDR
The transcervical quinacrine pellet method developed by Zipper and co-workers has potential for meeting the acceptable nonsurgical female sterilization method, but greater experience is needed to ensure that there will not be a rare, serious-complication.
Comparative risks and costs of male and female sterilization.
TLDR
Male and female sterilization procedures have efficacy rates that are not significantly different from each other and short-term costs that are 3.0 to 4.1 times that of vasectomy.

Pregnancy after laparoscopic sterilization.
TLDR
Pregnancies that occur after a method failure have a high risk of being ectopic, and patients sterilized by mechanical methods are best managed by microsurgical reanastomosis.

TLDR
Findings for 35 patients who underwent religation showed that recanalization and the establishment of a fistulous opening caused the majority of failures, indicating that more effective methods of tubal occlusion in sterilization are needed.

The authors believe that low mortality figures are realistic and can be achieved in developing countries when experienced surgical teams are provided with adequate facilities, observe strict medical standards, utilize minilaparotomy and laparoscopy and avoid general and spinal anesthesia.
