A comparative study of hysterosalpingography (HSG) and laparoscopy in the investigation of infertility is presented. From 1973-1977, 352 cases were investigated with both HSG and laparoscopy. In 57.67% of the cases there was complete agreement between HSG and laparoscopy. The study included 168 cases of unexplained infertility and 184 cases with abnormal hysterosalpingographic findings. Pelvic adhesions were demonstrated in 151 cases by laparoscopy as compared to 76 cases in which its presence was only suspected by HSG. Laparoscopy revealed a 57.14% of associated pelvic pathology in cases of unexplained fertility. The present study concludes that laparoscopy as compared to HSG is not only more informative, but also more accurate and conclusive.
