Abstract

Reversal of sterilization was performed by microsurgical tubal anastomosis in 72 women using either loupe (n = 36) or microscope (n = 36). The study design called for the randomization of patients with pairs, which were matched for method of sterilization and site of anastomosis. A significant difference between methods could not be demonstrated at 12 months (P = 0.39) or 24 months (P = 0.37) after the procedure.
