    Abstract

    In the Cardiff Family Planning Association Clinic 330 men have been sterilized during the past 20 months. Selection for operation was made after a detailed discussion between husband, wife, and a Family Planning Association doctor, and with the general practitioner's agreement. The outpatient operation was performed under local anaesthetic by a surgeon. It was regarded as being successful or complete when two semen analyses showed azoospermia at an interval of one month.
