Of couples with subfertility, 25% have complete or partial blockage of the fallopian tube. Since the advent of in vitro fertilization (IVF), the role of tubal surgery has diminished. However, this type of surgery continues to be undertaken on selected patients with mild tubal disease, and in those with severe ...

After multiple attempts at developing transcervical sterilization techniques over the past 150 years, United States women now have the option of a transcervical method, which can be performed without an incision under local anesthesia. It is feasible in most patients and highly effective once occlusion has been confirmed with hysterosalpingogram. ...

BACKGROUND: In 1998, transvaginal hydrolaparoscopy (THL) was introduced as a new outpatient procedure for exploration of tubo-ovarian structures and tubal patency in subfertile patients. At present, there are no large studies that relate the findings at THL to fertility outcome. METHODS: Consecutive patients undergoing THL for subfertility between 2000 and ...

Prior to the advent of microsurgical equipment and techniques, it was rare for urologists or other surgeons to produce a full pregnancy as a result of reconstructing fine tubal blockages in the male reproductive tract. Perhaps 2% of vasectomized men, and a large percent of men born sterile, are desirous ...

Infertility has been considered a global public health problem in many countries worldwide. Our objective was to restore endocrine function and fertility in tubal-oophorectomized rabbits using an orthotopic tubal-ovarian vascularized autotransplant model as the anatomical-functional unit while employing a microvascular surgical technique. Twenty New Zealand white (NZW) sexually mature female ...

Effective tubal transport of ova, sperm and embryos is a prerequisite for successful spontaneous pregnancy. Although there is much yet to be discovered about the mechanisms involved, it is evident that tubal transit is a far more complicated process than initially thought. Propulsion of gametes and embryos is achieved by ...

We report a combined intra-uterine and unruptured tubal pregnancy following ovulation induction by clomiphene citrate (CC) and timed intercourse. The diagnosis of heterotopic pregnancy (HP) is the major problem until occurrence of tubal rupture. Because HP is a life-threatening condition, the diagnosis should be made as soon as possible. In ...

BACKGROUND: Spontaneous heterotopic pregnancies are rare, but with assisted reproductive techniques the incidence may approach 1:100. With the widespread use of transvaginal ultrasonography, physicians have attempted treatment of heterotopic pregnancies with minimally invasive procedures such as transvaginal guided potassium chloride (KCl) injection. However, there are few data on the success ...

Hylamer polyethylene was used in the early 1990s to make hip-joint components. Clinical experience has shown that these components, if sterilized by gamma rays in the presence of oxygen, are easily affected by wear, which then leads to osteolysis. The authors analyzed polyethylene wear particles in seven patients who had ...

BACKGROUND: Second-trimester tubal pregnancy is an infrequent diagnosis, as these pregnancies often present with symptoms during the first trimester. CASE: A previously asymptomatic woman presented with pelvic pain and vaginal bleeding at 4 months' gestation and was found to have a live, 14-week, tubal pregnancy. CONCLUSION: Second-trimester symptoms, including nausea, ...

The transcervical approach to permanent female sterilization has been studied for more than 150 years. Methods for accessing the tubes via this approach include blind, radiological and visual (hysteroscopic) techniques. Modalities for occluding the fallopian tubes include thermal, chemical and mechanical means. Some combination of the approach and the occlusive ...

The laryngeal mask airway (LMA)-Fastrach silicone wire-reinforced tracheal tube (FTST) was specially designed for tracheal intubation through the intubating LMA (ILMA). However, conventional tracheal tubes have been successfully used to accomplish tracheal intubation. We designed this study to evaluate the success rate of blind tracheal intubation through the ILMA by ...
