Sexual sterilization of mammals by the production of an obstruction at the tubo-uterine junction has been reevaluated experimentally. The application of 0.15 ml of methyl 2-cyanoacrylate monomere to the junction in rabbits produced, at intervals from 1 to 6 weeks later, histological, hydrodynamic, and functional evidence of tubal obstruction.
