Angiomyolipoma (AML) is a rare, benign tumor composed of fat cells, smooth muscle cells, and blood vessels. They are commonly found in the kidney but have also been reported to occur in the liver, ovary, fallopian tube, spermatic cord, palate, and colon. Most often, they are discovered as an incidental ...

Over 80% of laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) patients are women, and approximately half of these are of reproductive age; therefore, pregnancy post-LAGB is common. It is not known if pregnancy increases the need for revisional procedures. We compare the incidence of revisions in two matched cohorts of LAGB patients, ...

The prevalence of infertility in the United States is 15-20% and this condition represents an important medical problem. The purpose of this work was to evaluate therapeutical efficacy of 2 consecutive hysterosalpingography (HSG) followed each other after 4 week compared with the fallopian tube recanalization (FTR). Two groups of 80 ...

Laparoscopy has been claimed to be superior to hysterosalpingography (HSG) in predicting fertility. Whether this conclusion is applicable to a general subfertile population can be questioned as data in support of this claim were collected in third line centres. The aim of this study was to assess the prognostic capacity ...

We investigated the feasibility of linear salpingotomy with suturing for ampullary tubal pregnancy via single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS). Three patients underwent SILS between April and May 2010 at our hospital due to ampullary tubal pregnancy. A multichannel port was inserted into the umbilicus via a 2.5-cm incision to accommodate ...

Tubal ectopic pregnancy is common, but accurate diagnosis is difficult and costly. There is currently no serum test to differentiate tubal from intrauterine implantation, and an effective biomarker of ectopic pregnancy would be a major clinical advance. A key feature of successful intrauterine implantation is the establishment of a supportive ...

Heterotopic pregnancy, ie, combined intrauterine and extrauterine (ectopic) pregnancy, is a rare clinical entity that may present with acute abdominal catastrophy. Most of cases reported in literature are a consequence of medical or surgical interventions like assisted reproductive techniques, tubal surgeries, intrauterine contraceptive devices, or pelvic inflammatory disease. Heterotopic pregnancy ...

Tubal ectopic pregnancy (EP) is the most common cause of maternal mortality in the first trimester of pregnancy; however, its etiology is uncertain. In EP, embryo retention within the Fallopian tube (FT) is thought to be due to impaired smooth muscle contractility (SMC) and alterations in the tubal microenvironment. Smoking ...

Fallopian tubal disease is a common cause of subfertility. Reproductive surgery or assisted reproduction techniques such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) have been the main treatment options for patients with tubal disease in Ireland, although access to these treatments remains limited. We describe a case of pregnancy following selective salpingography ...

Human ectopic pregnancy (EP) remains a common cause of pregnancy-related first trimester death. Nitric oxide (NO) is synthesized from L-arginine by three NO synthases (NOS) in different tissues, including the Fallopian tube. Studies of knockout mouse models have improved our understanding of the function of NOS isoforms in reproduction, but ...

Technological advances in fiberoptics and endoscopy have resulted in the development of minimally invasive transcervical tubal catheterization procedures with the potential of improved diagnostic accuracy of tubal disease and transcervical treatment of proximal tubal obstruction (PTO) with reduced risks, costs and morbidity compared with surgical procedures. Fallopian tube recanalization can ...

Tubal infertility mostly results from infections. Conception only is possible through complex treatments (in vitro fertilization or surgery). Success cannot be guaranteed, even after repeated treatments. Unfortunately, many couples are not informed about the prospect for success of tubal reconstruction. Problems of in vitro fertilization are low pregnancy and birth ...

Tubal disease, and particularly hydrosalpinx, has a detrimental effect on the outcome of in-vitro fertilisation (IVF). Performing a surgical intervention such as salpingectomy, tubal occlusion, aspiration of the hydrosalpinx fluid, or salpingostomy, prior to the IVF procedure in women with hydrosalpinges is thought improve the likelihood of successful outcome. To ...

Ectopic pregnancy, a worldwide health problem, is potentially life-threatening and occurs in approximately 1.5-2% of all pregnancies in the western world; however, the precise mechanisms underlying the initiation and development of tubal ectopic pregnancy are unknown. Tubal abnormalities and dysfunction, such as altered contractility or abnormal ciliary activity, have been ...

In this retrospective study, we observed a total of 553 patients with tubal infertility who underwent microsurgical reconstructive surgery of the fallopian tubes (including adhesiolysis, anastomosis, fimbrioplasty, salpingostomy, and refertilization after former sterilization). The pregnancy (43.4%) and birth (29.2%) rates after microsurgery for acquired tubal damages (abortion: 6.4%; ectopic pregnancy: ...

Unilateral twin tubal gestations are extremely rare with a reported incidence of 1 per 200 ectopic pregnancies. In recent years, the incidence of heterotopic pregnancy associated with in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (IVF-ET) has risen to 1%-3% of achieved pregnancies. We report a very rare case of a 32-year-old ...

Today, reproductive surgery has a limited place. In selected cases such as young women with a history of pelvic inflammatory disease, pelvic adhesions, and endometriosis, surgery could be considered. Most operations can be performed by laparoscopy; these include tubal anastomosis that yields a high pregnancy rate. On the other hand, ...

Embryo retention in the fallopian tube is thought to lead to ectopic pregnancy, which is a significant cause of morbidity. This pathological condition does not occur in laboratory rodents. Moreover, incidences of tubal pregnancy after assisted reproduction (ART) are continuously increasing. What are the factors that need to be considered ...

BACKGROUND: Poststerilization ectopic pregnancies occur as the result of tuboperitoneal or uteroperitoneal fistula formation allowing sperm access to the peritoneal cavity and ovulated ova. This fistula formation is more likely to occur with dissection involving the proximal fallopian tube. CASE: Three consecutive fallopian tube ectopic pregnancies occurred in a woman ...

Theoretically, total salpingectomy eliminates the risk of an ipsilateral tubal pregnancy. However, total salpingectomy is difficult to achieve using endoloops alone. We describe a situation where this resulted in an ipsilateral recurrence of tubal pregnancy which required emergency intervention and removal of the tubal remnants.

Complex coordinated contractions of the tubal musculature are thought to be important for movement of the ovum from the distal end to the proximal end of the tube, while at the same time aiding in the movement of sperm from the proximal end to the distal end of the oviduct. ...
Patil Madhuri - - 2009
The fallopian tube plays an important role in the mechanical transport and physiological sustenance of the gametes and early conceptus. Complex and coordinated neuromuscular activity, cilial action and endocrine secretions are required for successful tubal function. Compromised tubal damage can occur after external or internal injury, inhibiting the normal transport ...

Lumpectomy specimens are commonly divided into six sides: superficial, deep, superior, inferior, medial, and lateral. Orienting stitches are placed on the specimen during surgery to allow reorientation by pathology. Despite those efforts, specimen disorientation may occur. The aim of this study was to assess the correlation in orientation between surgeons ...
