Untying Tied Tubes: Tubal Ligation and Resection

Tubal Sterilization Methods

‘Tying tubes’ is a phrase that is commonly used to refer to surgical procedures that result in tubal sterilization.

The Pomeroy method of tubal sterilization is a tubal ligation and resection procedure. There are many different ways to block the fallopian tubes for tubal sterilization: ligation and resection (tying and cutting), tubal clips or rings, and electrocoagulation (burning). No matter how the procedure is done, the end result is closure or occlusion of the fallopian tube. This prevents sperm from reaching an egg.

Tubal Ligation and Resection

The most common female sterilization procedure is the ligation and resection method. This was the earliest reported method of sterilization, and it is still a very common and effective procedure. According to the method described by Dr. Ralph Pomeroy, an absorbable suture is tied around a “knuckle” of the fallopian tube that has been elevated and a segment is resected (cut out). The cut ends close as the tube heals. As the suture dissolves, the two tubal segments pull apart. Ligation and resection is currently the most popular form of sterilization for women. It is often performed during a cesarean delivery (C-section) or following a normal delivery.

Untying ‘Tied’ Tubes

A common misconception is that fertility can be restored by simply ‘untying’ the tubes. Tubal ligation reversal is not that simple. Tubal ligation and resection is reversed by opening the closed ends of the tubes and joining the tubal segments back together in perfect alignment using microsurgical techniques. Approximately 70% of patients at A Personal Choice become pregnant after a reversal of a ligation and resection procedure.

Tubal Ligation and Resection Can Be Reversed

Many people believe tubal sterilization is permanent and irreversible. Although tubal ligation and resection sterilization is intended to be permanent, this procedure can be reversed. A Personal Choice is the medical facility that specializes in tubal ligation reversal. We are experts in reversing tubal ligations- or ‘untying’ tubes that have been ‘tied’!
