Tube tied reversal is not an often used phrased by many people.

Tubes Tied: Meaning Of The Term
‘Tubes’ refers to fallopian tubes and ‘tied’ refers to closing the tube to prevent pregnancy. How is this done? Are the tubes really tied?
Fallopian tubes are long and narrow just like a string. The term ‘tying tubes’ was created to explain a complex medical concept. Although it is easy to understand and conceptualize tying tubes, the actual surgical procedure of tubal ligation is not as simple as tying a knot with a piece of rope or a piece of string.
Tying tubes can be done in various ways, but the end result is the same: preventing an unwanted pregnancy.
How Are Tubes Tied?
‘Tubes tied’ really means blocking the tube with tubal ligation to prevent an unwanted pregnancy. Tubes can be ‘tied’ with surgical suture, metal clips (Hulka and Filshie clips), tubal rings, burning (bipolar and monopolar coagulation) and with Essure and Adiana devices.
Reversing all of these methods is possible and pregnancy can happen.
Tube Tied Reversal Success Rate
The chances of pregnancy after tube tied reversal depend on many factors. The chances of pregnancy depend on the age of the patient at the time of tubal reversal surgery, the methods used to perform the tubal closure, and the health and length of the fallopian tubes after the reversal procedure.
The tube tied reversal success rate is approximately 70% for most types of tubal ligation or, to put it another way, about 3 out of every 4 patients who has a reversal of tied tubes will become pregnant.
