Inoue T - - 2001
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 ...

Two studies at three sites in the UK provided confirmation that systematic positive bias in NO2 diffusion tube measurement occurred because of changes to "within-tube" chemistry, rather than eddy diffusion at the mouth of the tube. In the first study in Cambridge, UK, sampler overestimation for 1 and 2 week ...

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 ...

Tubal disease remains the most important factor in female infertility. Many investigators reported that patients with hydrosalpinx had a decreased clinical pregnancy rate and an increased miscarriage rate, resulting in a decreased ongoing pregnancy rate when compared to that of patients with other types of tubal disease. Different studies showed ...
Johnson N P - - 2000
Hydrotubation with oil-soluble contrast media for unexplained infertility and adhesiolysis for infertility due to peritubal adhesions are primary procedures of recognised benefit. It is less clear whether postoperative procedures such as hydrotubation or second-look laparoscopy with adhesiolysis are beneficial following pelvic reproductive surgery. To assess the value of postoperative hydrotubation ...
Vandekerckhove P - - 2000
There has been debate in the literature for more than 40 years as to whether flushing of the Fallopian tubes enhances fertility and whether this presumed therapeutic effect is greater with oil-soluble media than with water-soluble media. A meta-analysis of the therapeutic role of oil-soluble contrast media at hysterosalpingography was ...

Research in reduced suture fibrin glue (FG) and sutureless FG anastomosis has been lagging behind FG utilization in other surgical fields. A review of the literature for vascular, esophageal, tracheal, gastrointestinal, common bile duct, ureteral, vas deferens, and Fallopian tube FG anastomosis indicates that reduced suture FG and sutureless FG ...

The successful introduction of microsuturing and microinstruments for operative laparoscopy has allowed the convergence of laparoscopy and traditional microsurgery, resulting in the evolution of the 'new microsurgery'. This more dynamic approach overcomes the limitations of open microsurgery by providing continuous magnification and the benefits of a closed environment, making laparoscopy ...

The fallopian tube is the essential link between the ovary and the uterus. Its transport mechanisms are now reasonably well understood and include orderly ovum transfer by the fimbria, and ovum/preembryo retention, with transport to the uterus on the third postovulatory day. Sperm/tube interaction ensures a reservoir and storage/activation system ...

Pang L C - - 1999
The patient described in this report had bilateral hydrosalpinx due to pregnancies in both fallopian tubes, treated by laparoscopic resection. Histologically, both fallopian tubes revealed intratubal occlusion by degenerated, partially calcified chorionic tissue. An incidental finding was an intraluminal papillary epithelial tumor in one of the fallopian tubes. The clinical ...
Chandra P C - - 1999
BACKGROUND: Because heterotopic pregnancy is rare, the presence of an intrauterine pregnancy tends to impede early diagnosis and definitive intervention for the ectopic component. Delay in diagnosing the condition and failure to proceed quickly with the requisite anesthesia and surgery can jeopardize both maternal well-being and survival of the intrauterine ...
