PMID:  6621947     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The present study is a detailed review of 415 patients undergoing sterilization under local anesthesia with hysteroscopically placed silicone plugs. The authors compiled 3200 woman-months after sterilization without a pregnancy. Up to 90% of women undergoing this procedure in the office have successful completion. The difficulties with the method are outlined, unsuccessful procedures categorized, and radiographs presented, and the outlook for the future is discussed. The method is seen as a viable alternative to laparoscopic sterilization.
