Reconstructive oviductal surgery was performed on 205 private patients with primary and secondary infertility, who were selected from 1075 endoscopic examinations. Each patient underwent an infertility survey which included gamete formation, reception and deposition of gametes, nidation, post-coital, and semen analysis. Only those with tubal abnormalities, not responding to conservative therapy after a minimum period of six months following laparoscopic examination, were selected for tuboplasty. Spiral stents for fimbrioplasty and straight teflon tubing for mid-portion and cornua obstruction were employed. These stents were removed eight weeks post-surgery, under local anesthesia at the office. Of the 205 tuboplasties, 193 patients had sustained patency; 75 conceived; 7 aborted; and 1 had an ectopic pregnancy. Pregnancy occurred between 1 and 26 months after removal of the stents. Complications were very few. The use of Roland spiral teflon stents has resulted in a greater percentage in patency and pregnancy rates, as compared to those without use of stents.
