In brief: Yes

Risk: doesn't work- wanted to be sterile, but the connection remains and sperm can get through.
Risk: swelling surrounding tissues risk: bleeding of vessels-->collection of blood (hematoma)-->bruising/ discoloration risk: damage to the testicle-->loss of testicle --> =leading to risk: pain, men many over do activities after surgery which increases the risk.

Slight risk of recanalization if divided ends of vas deferens are close and a sperm granuloma develops.
