Does it matter how you seal the severed ends of the vas deferns…for a vasectomy or a reversal?

No…

In terms of a vasectomy, there are several ways to seal the vas. Whether you use clips, suture, or fulgurate (as seen above-which is my preferred method) the success of a vasectomy is essentially the same and is the preference of the surgeon.

In terms of performing a reversal, a vasectomy having used clips makes it a bit easier to find the affected area, but in the big scheme of things the method used does not influence outcome or affecting the ease of the reversal.
