Objective Tubal sterilization is a widespread method of contraception. Post-sterilization regret is encountered, despite careful consideration prior to the procedure. Two treatment options are available for women after having had tubal sterilization: microsurgical reversal and IVF treatment. Recent improvements in laparoscopy have allowed tubal reanastomosis to be performed. This study aimed to evaluate the reproductive outcome after laparoscopic tubal reanastomosis and surgical features of the patients. Methods From June 2007 to January 2010, 27 patients with bilateral tubal ligation who underwent laparoscopic tubal reanastomosis were evaluated retrospectively...

INTRODUCTION: Tubectomy remains one of the most popular methods of permanent contraception in developing countries. But about 10% of them regret their decision and 1% want to restore their fertility. Out of many options open method of tubal recanalisation is one of the method of restoring fertility. AIM: Primary objective was to analyse whether open tubal recanalization is a feasible option for those planning to conceive after tubectomy. Secondary objective was to evaluate the pregnancy rate and analyse the various factors affecting pregnancy rate after tubal recanalization...

INTRODUCTION: Female sterilization is one of the best and effective methods of contraception for women who have completed their family. Tubectomy during caesarean operation and minilaparotomy are popular methods in developing countries whereas laparoscopic sterilization and hysteroscopic tubal occlusion are the preferred methods in developed countries. AIM: To know the trends, incidence and immediate complications of methods of female sterilizations performed at our institute...

OBJECTIVES: To study the various factors affecting the success rate of tubal recanalization and the reasons for failure of the procedure. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted during 2000-2007 @ KIMS, Hubli. RESULTS: Of the 25 subjects who underwent tubal recanalization, 44 % of women conceived and they were >35 years of age. Laparoscopically sterilized patients had better chances of conception (50 %) following reversal than those who were sterilized by Pomeroy's method (30 %)...

STUDY DESIGN: Fifty women who had undergone tubal sterilization during a cesarean section (n=24) and by minilaparotomy as an elective procedure (n=26) were included in the study. Tubes were ligated with the Pomeroy technique in both groups...

PURPOSE: The purpose of the study was two-fold. Firstly it was to assess the suitability for tubal recanalization and factors predicting successful laparoscopic recanalization. Secondly, it was to analyze the fertility outcomes and factors affecting the pregnancy rate following laparoscopic tubal recanalization. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective chart review of prospectively followed-up 29 women at a tertiary care center seeking tubal sterilization reversal between May 2005 and February 2010 were included...

OBJECTIVES: The modified Pomeroy procedure is currently the most widely used method for postpartum sterilisation. Alternative options are Filshie clips, Hulka-Clemens clips and Falope rings. In this systematic review we pooled the available evidence in order to compare the failure rates, complications, technical difficulties, and reversibility of the Pomeroy method and Filshie clips when resorted to for postpartum sterilisation. METHODS: We gathered data from MEDLINE, EMBASE (1970-2010), the Cochrane database, and reference lists of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and observational studies...

BACKGROUND: Female sterilisation is the most popular contraceptive method worldwide. Several techniques are described in the literature, however only few of them are commonly used and properly evaluated. OBJECTIVES: To compare the different tubal occlusion techniques in terms of major and minor morbidity, failure rates (pregnancies), technical failures and difficulties, and women's and surgeons' views. SEARCH STRATEGY: Originally MEDLINE and The Cochrane Controlled Trials Register were searched...

BACKGROUND: Female sterilization is an important tool in reducing unplanned pregnancy and maternal mortality in our environment. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence, sociodemographic characteristics, technique, effectiveness and complications associated with female sterilization by bilateral tubal ligation at caesarean section. METHOD: This was a retrospective analysis of the clinical records of 78 clients who had female sterilization out of 1,346 acceptors of contraceptive methods at the Federal Medical Centre, Makurdi, over a 5-year period between November 2002 and October 2007...

BACKGROUND: Sterilization failure due to 'tubal non-occlusion' or 'wrong structure sterilization' is considered negligent, whereas 'spontaneous tubal recanalization' or 'fistula formation' is considered non-negligent. We examined whether interval to pregnancy failure was predictive of a negligent rather non-negligent failure mechanism. We aim to test this hypothesis in a selected population series of known mechanisms of sterilization failure and their time interval to failure. METHODS: Analyses of 131 failed sterilizations pooled from UK (NHS Litigation Authority, Medical Protection Society and our hospital), Australia and a qualitative systematic review...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to emphasize the role of counseling methods that are meant to decrease the request for tubal ligation reversal, such as tubal ligation scoring. METHOD: This study covers 389 patients who were admitted for tubal sterilization to Cukurova University, Faculty of Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology Department, between 1 January 1990 and 31 December 1999. We have used the 'Tubal ligation score' on these 389 patients. Four hundred and seventeen patients who underwent bilateral Pomeroy type tubal ligation during cesarean section without having undergone tubal ligation scoring in the same time interval, were accepted as the control group...

RESULTS (FEMALE STERILIZATION): (i) EFFICACY of tubal ligation, electrocoagulation, clips or rings: the annual pregnancy rate is 0-2% depending on the study, with no significant difference between techniques. No data were found on fimbriectomy...

BACKGROUND: Tubal sterilization is the method of family planning most commonly used. The existence of the post-tubal-ligation syndrome of menstrual abnormalities has been the subject of debate for decades. METHODS: In a cross-sectional study, 112 women with the history of Pomeroy type of tubal ligation achieved by minilaparatomy as the case group and 288 women with no previous tubal ligation as the control group were assessed for menstrual abnormalities. RESULTS: Menstrual abnormalities were not significantly different between the case and control groups (p = 0...

This study was conducted to study poststerilization menstrual changes. For this purpose, 60 rats were divided into 2 groups. In the first group, rats underwent bilateral uterine horn ligation with Pomeroy method, and one ovary of each rat was excised and weighed. The other ligated ovary was left intact. In the second group, only unilateral oophorectomy was performed. Histopathological studies revealed the presence of primary, secondary, and tertiary follicles in the ovaries of all the rats at the beginning of the study...
