First Successful Pregnancy After Adiana Reversal Procedure

first baby every after adiana reversalThe tubal reversal surgeons of A Personal Choice are honored to report the first successful pregnancy after an Adiana reversal procedure. This was the first Adiana reversal and is the first successful Adiana reversal pregnancy which has been reported to the medical field and greater public.

Adiana is a sterilization procedure that is very similar to the Essure procedure. Adiana was first approved by the FDA in July of 2009; however,  prior to this date Adiana was performed in the United States  only in clinical trials. Our patient was one of the first patients to undergo the sterilization procedure during a clinical trial and is now the first successful Adiana reversal patient. Her baby was recently born and we would like to share her story.

Can Adiana Be Reversed?

Tina was one of the first women who underwent Adiana sterilization during an experimental trial. Unfortunately after her Adiana procedure, she lost one of her children to a tragic drowning accident. We previously published her story of Adiana sterilization and Adiana reversal.

After Tina began to recover from the loss of her son, she began to consider having another child. She had to consider IVF as an option for another pregnancy but she also asked herself could her Adiana be reversed?

First Ever Reported Reversal of Adiana

First adiana reversal patient with dr. BergerTina’s question about Adiana reversibility led her to A Personal Choice. Tina asked if we could reverse her Adiana and we told her it would be possible with a special reversal technique. Her Adiana sterilization reversal procedure was the first of its kind and was performed at A Personal Choice by Dr. Berger, with Dr. Monteith assisting,  in February of 2009.

A successful bilateral tubotubal uterine implantation procedure was required for this reversal. This reversal surgery involved bypassing the blocked segment of each tube by removing the healthy tube attached to the uterus and re-inserting this tube into the uterine cavity. This reversal procedure is not commonly done in the United States, but is performed at our tubal reversal specialty center for Essure reversal and for tubal ligation procedures that close the tubes very close to the uterus. Tina’s reversal operation lasted 70 minutes and was performed as an outpatient procedure.

Pregnancy After Adiana Tubal Reversal

Tina did well after her reversal procedure. She returned home the next day and went back to work soon thereafter. Her first Adiana reversal pregnancy was reported to us six months after her reversal; however, this pregnancy ended in miscarriage. The second pregnancy soon followed and was healthy. Tina experienced a normal pregnancy and gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Dylan, in August of 2010. Dylan was delivered by c-section, and weighed 8lbs and 9 oz.

Can You Get Pregnant After Essure, Adiana, or Tubal Ligation?

reversal specialty centerOur experience demonstrates pregnancy can happen after Essure, Adiana, or traditional tubal ligation. We have extensive skill in reversal of tubal ligation procedures and also with the more complicated surgical reversals required for both Adiana and Essure sterilization.

We are thrilled with Tina’s recent pregnancy testimonial and are happy to have been able to assist her with her Adiana reversal. We would like to congratulate Tina and her family and we look forward to helping other couples who may desire to become pregnant after tubal ligation, Adiana, or Essure procedures.
