The development of gynecology as a specialty, although primarily American in origin, was influenced in large degree by Robert Lawson Tait, a brilliant Scottish/English surgeon who practiced in the late 19th century. Tait, a self-proclaimed gynecologist, is perhaps most widely known as the first to perform salpingectomy to treat ruptured ...

Two treatment options are available for patients suffering from tubal infertility due to hydrosalpinges. Surgical distal tubal repair is appropriate only for patients with preserved tubal mucosa, otherwise the subsequent intrauterine pregnancy rate is unacceptably low and the ectopic pregnancy rate too high. The alternative treatment, IVF, has also demonstrated ...

A unilateral twin tubal pregnancy occurring in a solitary fallopian tube is presented. The gynecological history was notable for a previous extrauterine pregnancy in the contralateral fallopian tube and reconstructive surgery to the ipsilateral one. Radical total salpingectomy was performed. The rationale for this management is discussed and different therapeutic ...

A heterotopic pregnancy is in effect a multiple pregnancy with one or more intrauterine pregnancies coexisting with an ectopic pregnancy. Prompt diagnosis, rapid fluid and blood resuscitation, heart-sparing anesthesia and gentle, expeditious surgery collectively contribute to a favorable outcome for the mother and fetus in patients with a ruptured tubal ...

Tubal sterilization is one of the options chosen by the women who have completed their fertility. Although ectopic pregnancy after tubal sterilization is rare, all women undergoing this procedure should be informed about the risk of it. An ectopic pregnancy in a 36-year-old woman who had undergone tubal sterilization is ...

A possible therapeutic effect of diagnostic tubal patency testing has been debated in the literature for half a century. Further debate surrounds whether oil-soluble or water-soluble contrast media might have the bigger fertility-enhancing effect. Historically a variety of agents have been used to 'flush' the fallopian tubes, although tubal flushing ...

As first reported by Brain(1) by the early 1980s, the laryngeal mask airway (LMA) represented a new approach to airway management. The LMA has been used to facilitate tracheal intubation by a variety of methods. In fact, the LMA has been used to intubate the patient with difficult tracheal access. ...

Salpingoscopy during laparoscopy yields the best prognosis in patients with hydrosalpinx. It has been demonstrated that in-vitro fertilization (IVF) patients with hydrosalpinx have decreased pregnancy rates as compared with control individuals. If a patient with hydrosalpinx is to be treated with IVF, then the communication between the uterine tube and ...

Assisted reproductive technology and reproductive surgery can be complementary, and the feasibility of laparoscopic suturing has facilitated conducting reproductive surgery entirely by laparoscopy. Young women with tubal disease can be offered surgery, whereas older women, with their rapid decline in fertility, are better treated with in vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF ...

We present a case of coexistence of an ectopic pregnancy and an adenomatoid tumor in the same fallopian tube. The adenomatoid tumor is the most common benign neoplasm of the fallopian tube, and the vast majority of ectopic pregnancies occur in the fallopian tube. However, coexistence of these two conditions ...

Use of selective salpingography and fallopian tube recanalization has revolutionized the diagnosis and treatment of infertility. Selective salpingography, a diagnostic procedure in which the fallopian tube is directly opacified through a catheter placed in the tubal ostium, has been used since the late 1980s to differentiate spasm from true obstruction ...

Ectopic pregnancy is a implantation occurring elsewhere than in the cavity of the uterus, whereas ninety-nine percent of extrauterine pregnancies occur in the fallopian tube. The incidence of extrauterine pregnancy has increased from 0.5% thirty years ago, to a present day 1-2%. The most frequent cause of tubal pregnancy is ...
