Is cbavd sensitive for cystic fibrosis? in other words, if a male patient has both vas deferens, can it be assumed they do not have cystic fibrosis?

generally absence of vas deference is associated with cystic fibrosis. However to make a definite diagnosis of caustic fibrosis you need the chromosomal test.
