Because there is disagreement as to how linear ampullary salpingotomy should heal, primarily or secondarily, we compared the two methods with the use of rabbit oviducts in which conditions simulating ectopic pregnancy had been induced. Pregnancy rates (86% versus 75%), nidation indices (62% versus 54%), and percentage of adhesion-free tubes (50% versus 32%) were greater after primary closure, but these differences were not statistically significant. Ampullary tuboperitoneal fistulae occurred at the site of operation in 6.8% of tubes and impaired fertility (P less than 0.005).
