Reversal with "skeletonising the vas"

Hey all,

I am currently awaiting a referral for a reversal to correct some PVPS issues - The urologist had mentioned during the reversal about “skeletonising the vas” on the left side - I want to check, is this the same as spermatic cord denervation, basically pealing the vas, is this even possible during or after a reversal? I do not want anything other than a straight vas to vas reversal and will need to clarify this during pre-op with urologist

I believe „skeletonizing“ is the same as „cord stripping“ or „classic“ MSCD as opposed to targeted neurolysis / targeted MSCD.

Ah yes mate, thanks, that’s what I was suspecting - I’ll be making sure to say no thanks to this
