Laparoscopic Tubal Cannulation

Tubal Infertility

The fallopian tubes are the pathway to fertility. Sperm travel upward through the fallopian tubes to find an egg. After fertilization, the embryo travels back through the tube to the uterus. The fallopian tubes are a two-way path that allows the sperm and egg to meet and combine and the embryo to arrive in its resting place, the uterus. With such a delicate and sophisticated pathway, It is common for problems to develop in the tubal system.

Evaluation of these problems can be complex, and devising a treatment plan

requires a close relationship with a physician with experience in these areas

What is Tubal Cannulation?

Tubal cannulation is a procedure to help clear a blockage in the fallopian tubes, a common cause of female infertility. As many as 1 in 4 women who have difficulty getting pregnant have a blockage in the fallopian tubes.

For the treatment of a tube blocked near the opening of the uterus, a tiny wire is placed through the cervix and uterus and into the tube. The wire gently opens the tube and may relieve an obstruction in this area. Tubal cannulation can be performed in the X-Ray department under fluoroscopy or via a hysteroscope. A physician who is experienced in the techniques is essential.

Laparoscopic Tubal Cannulation

Laparoscopy is the classic procedure to evaluate and treat tubal disease. Under anesthesia, an incision is placed in the belly button, and a small television camera is placed through the incision. The doctor can look at the pelvic organs, and introduce some treatment equipment through small ¼ inch incisions. Problems can be treated with scissors, cautery, or a laser.
