Abstract

We have studied a group of 19 patients presenting with proximal tubal occlusion. Seventy-three percent (22/30) of tubes attempted were successfully cannulated. Sixty-two percent (5/8) of tubes remained patent in limited follow-up at 3 to 6 months. We conclude that selective fallopian tube cannulation may provide an alternative to microsurgical tubal anastomosis in selected patients.
