Treatment for Damaged Fallopian Tubes

Treatment for Damaged Fallopian Tubes

Fallopian Tubes are usually blocked by chronic (long lasting) pelvic inflammatory disease.  As this will often have damaged the inside of the tube as well as closing it, the tube will not function properly even when unblocked.  Surgery is therefore only employed for very minor damage causing a blockage at the narrowest part of the tube where it passes through the muscle of the womb or where the fimbrial ends near the ovary have stuck together.  The former can be treated by Reimplantation of the Fallopian Tube, the latter by “Cuff Salpingostomy”. 
After sterilisation, the damaged part of the tube can be cut out and the tube reanastomosed (joined up).  However, this leaves a significantly shorter tube. 
In almost all circumstances, In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) is a more successful treatment.
