OBJECTIVE: To assess the feasibility and the results on fertility of tubal hysteroscopic proximal occlusion with Essure(®) micro-insert in women with hydrosalpinges. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Thirteen infertile women with hydrosalpinges, who underwent hysteroscopic tubal exclusion by Essure(®) prior to IVF procedure. RESULTS: The placement of micro-insert was feasible and easy in every patient, with no intra-operative complication. Only one postoperative infectious complication (pyosalpinx) occurred. We report a 64 % rate of pregnancy, and a 18 % rate of normally ongoing pregnancies with no Essure(®)-related complication. CONCLUSION: Hydrosalpinges occlusion by Essure(®) device might be an easy and safe alternative to laparoscopic treatment, with successful results on fertility and without adverse effects on pregnancy outcomes.
