The use of a newly designed nonabsorbable polymeric stent in reconstructing the vas deferens: a feasibility study in New Zealand white rabbits.

OBJECTIVES To investigate the use of a newly designed stent in the reconstruction of the vas deferens. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 26 New Zealand White rabbits, 13 conventional one-layer microscopic reconstructions were compared with 13 stented reconstructions of the vas deferens. The newly designed nonabsorbable polymeric stent was shaped to facilitate the… CONTINUE READING
