Yes, it does. That's why I, personally, will do OSS rather than TL or traditional spay if I can find a vet who will do it, since mine (surprisingly, because I've been using him for 20 years and he's always been seemingly reasonable and open to new information) seems to be under the mistaken impression that OSS will either increase the risk of stump pyometra - not true if the procedure is done correctly - or otherwise create a gaping hole into the body cavity through the cervix for bacteria to invade...also completely ridiculous and I'm dumbfounded by that assertion.
