Chronic inflammation is a frequent cause of tuboplasty failure. Therefore, it would be useful for one to know the microbiologic agent of infection and to treat it before the tuboplasty. By laparoscopy, a search for Chlamydia trachomatis, Ureaplasma urealyticum, and other microbiologic agents was carried out in the peritoneum and tubes of 118 women divided into 3 groups. Sixty-nine had a checkup before tuboplasty, of which 30 were found to have a chronic inflammatory condition discovered during laparoscopy (group 1) and 39 to have no sign of inflammation (group 2). Forty-nine women with a completely normal pelvis, being followed for possible sterility, were used as a control group. Cultures and serodiagnosis show a significant difference for C. trachomatis between the pathologic groups and the control group. They show no noticeable difference for U. urealyticum. These findings, compared with those by other authors, indicate that C. trachomatis could be an important microbiologic agent in tubal sterility, strongly connected with a low-grade chronic inflammatory condition, and their presence at the time of tuboplasty is to be considered.
