STUDY OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of laparoscopic surgery in a series of women with hydrosalpinx. DESIGN: Prospective, observational study (Canadian Task Force classification II-2). Setting. University-affiliated hospital. PATIENTS: Sixty-one women undergoing bilateral neosalpingostomy and restoration of tubal ovarian anatomy laparoscopically, and followed for 24 months. INTERVENTION: Video-controlled operative laparoscopy using standard four-puncture technique. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: During 24-month follow-up, cumulative intrauterine pregnancy rates at 6-month intervals were 6.8%, 13.6%, 20.5%, and 20.5% for patients with only distal tubal obstruction and 12%, 23%, 29%, and 29% for those with mild degree of tubal disease and periadnexal adhesions. Miscarriage rate for intrauterine pregnancies was zero in both groups. CONCLUSION: Operative laparoscopy seems to be an effective treatment for hydrosalpinx in terms of pregnancy outcome.
