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 ...

Bipolar radiofrequency (RF) ablation, especially with perfusion of saline, has been shown to increase volume over monopolar conventional methods. The aims of this study are to study whether this method is linked to too flattened thermal lesions and premature rise of impedance and to elucidate some safety concerns. Eighteen RF ...

Each year, a significant number of pregnant women undergo surgery and anaesthesia for indications unrelated to pregnancy. Estimates of the incidence of non-obstetric surgery in pregnancy, which may be required at any gestational age, and for a number of indications, range from 1.0 to 2%. The diagnosis of any medical ...

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 ...

This study aimed to elucidate the predictive value of hysterosalpingography (HSG) and laparoscopy (LS) scores for spontaneous pregnancy after laparoscopic surgery in 50 patients with tubal infertility. During a 1-year follow-up period, 28% of these patients became pregnant. Both scores were informative in prediction of pregnancy with the area under ...

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 ...

AIM: The hysterosalpingography (HSG) was evaluated after the clinical treatment of tubal pregnancy and the possible risk of tubal obstruction through the following parameters: beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (beta-hCG) levels, size of the adnexal mass, aspects of the image at ultrasound, and color Doppler. METHODS: Eighty patients were submitted to HSG ...

The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists has included selective salpingography and tubal catheterisation (SS-TC) in its evidence-based clinical guideline for the management of infertility in secondary care. In spite of being a cost-effective and minimally invasive treatment option for proximal tubal blockage, SS-TC has been slow to become adopted ...

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 ...

BACKGROUND: Primary ovarian pregnancy constitutes <1% of ectopic gestations. Likewise, bilateral tubal ligation failure is uncommon, occurring in approximately 1% of tubal sterilization procedures. Should pregnancy occur after bilateral tubal ligation, of every 3 such pregnancies, 1 will be an ectopic. The incidence of ovarian pregnancy after tubal ligation has ...

INTRODUCTION: Isolated torsion of the fallopian tube is a very rare condition. It occurs without ipsilateral ovarian involvement associated with pregnancy, haemosalpinx, hydrosalpinx, ovarian or paraovarian cysts and other adnexal alterations or even with an otherwise normal fallopian tube. We document a case of isolated torsion of the right fallopian ...

In contrast to the traditional Roux-en-Y reconstruction, an uncut Roux-en-Y provides biliopancreatic diversion and may preserve myoelectric continuity. Previous iterations of the uncut Roux have been plagued by recanalization of the uncut staple line in the afferent small bowel. Our aim was to determine if bovine pericardium buttress prevents recanalization ...

OBJECTIVES: To establish the safety, effectiveness and acceptability of quinacrine sterilization (QS) in Iran. To determine whether the hysterosalpingogram (HSG) performed under low pressure can be used to demonstrate success of the QS procedure rather than waiting for a pregnancy to occur in order to demonstrate failure. METHODS: This study ...

Although there are no data to support specific recommendations regarding nonobstetric surgery and anesthesia in pregnancy, it is important for nonobstetric physicians to obtain obstetric consultation before performing nonobstetric surgery. The decision to use fetal monitoring should be individualized, and each case warrants a team approach for optimal safety of ...

Ectopic and heterotopic pregnancy may occur with increased frequency following assisted reproductive technology (ART) procedures. In addition, there may be unusual sites of implantation, which may cause atypical and confusing clinical manifestations. We present a case of tubal pregnancy after tubal embryo transfer (TET) to the contralateral fallopian tube. Four ...
