Tuboplasty

A tuboplasty is a surgical procedure used to correct a fallopian tube obstruction or adhesion, in order to reopen or repair a fallopian tube and achieve a pregnancy in women with tubal infertility. In many cases of fallopian tube blockage, after a tuboplasty is performed, the natural conception process can take place.

fallopian-tubeWomen experiencing infertility may have a blockage in the fallopian tubes either at their insertion into the uterus or at the ends of the fallopian tubes. If the obstruction occurs where the fallopian tube inserts into the uterus, a hysteroscopy may be performed to reopen the tube using a thin dilator. If the farthest portion of the fallopian tube is blocked, it may be opened using microsurgery or laparoscopic surgery.

When one or both fallopian tubes are blocked, successfully reopening or repairing the tubes can restore a woman’s ability to become pregnant.
