National opioid prescription patterns and patient usage after routine vasectomy

Andrologia Mar 25, 2020

Asanad K, et al. - This study ascertained urologist opioid prescribing patterns and patients' pain control medication regimens (opioid and anti‐inflammatory) after vasectomy. An anonymous seven‐question electronic survey of urologists was designed to evaluate vasectomy practice and post‐vasectomy opioid prescriptions using the American Medical Association Physician Masterfile database. They carried out a retrospective internal telephone survey of men who underwent vasectomy by a single surgeon. Men about opioid prescription filling, opioid use and ibuprofen use were queried by this telephonic survey. The results of this study indicated that integration of practice guidelines may support standardise and minimise potentially unnecessary post‐vasectomy opioid prescriptions.
