A new study concluded that men who underwent the vasectomy reversals, were at ten times the risk of fathering abnormal children than men who didn't, stemming from the original operation that the men undertook, Dog Flu Diet and Diseases reports.

Specifically, these patients showed higher rates of a condition called chromosomal aneuploidy, in which atypical numbers of chromosomes or sets of chromosomes appear within a cell's nucleus. They also showed higher rates of diploidy, meaning that two sets - rather than the one that normally appears - of chromosomes appear in the nuclei of sex cells, Forbes reports.

A positive factor that was learned from the study, was, that the longer amount of time following  after vasectomy reversal, helped the man's sperm return to normal condition.
