To achieve maximum dilatation of the Fallopian tubes so as to improve the pregnancy: non-pregnancy ratio of hysterosalpingography (HSG) treatment, a high-pressure injection technique was evaluated. For this purpose a disposable cannula and an adapted pair of tenacula were developed and a remote-control procedure using an auto-injector and an adapted pressure recorder was used to assure the safety of doctors and staff. 1780 cases who underwent 400 mmHg high-pressure HSG treatment were compared with 903 conventional HSG cases. Results indicated a higher pregnancy ratio for the high-pressure experimental group after treatment. In addition, it was found that side effects due to the use of disposable cannula and highly viscous water-soluble mediums developed for use in angiography were less common than for conventional materials.
