An inexpensive laparoscopy system for female sterilization

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Laparoscopy has become an established procedure for female sterilization. The cost of the equipment remains excessively high, thereby reducing its availability to all physicians and patients who desire and need it. We have described an inexpensive-but highly effective-female sterilization system utilizing equipment that should cost in the range of $400.00.
