STUDY OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of early second-look laparoscopy (ESLL) and the usefulness of the American Fertility Society (AFS) adhesion score at ESLL in terms of reproductive prognosis. DESIGN: Retrospective study (Canadian Task Force classification II-2). SETTING: University hospital. PATIENTS: Ninety-two consecutive women undergoing infertility surgery between January 1983 and December 1996. INTERVENTION: We performed ESLL in all but 32 patients, 27 of whom underwent surgery before institution of the protocol. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: The pregnancy rate in 1 year was significantly higher in women having ESLL than in those not having the surgery. The AFS score was not significantly different in pregnant and nonpregnant patients. CONCLUSION: Early second-look laparoscopy may improve fecundity in women requiring fertility surgery.
