Tubal Ligation Methods

The type of tubal ligation that was performed is an important factor affecting the outcome of tubal reversal surgery. The most common method involved tying and cutting out a segment of the tube (ligation/resection). The second most common method was tubal coagulation (burning the tubes) followed in frequency by mechanical occlusion with tubal clips or rings. Other procedures, including fimbriectomy (removing the end of the fallopian tube) were the least common. In cases where the patient’s operative report of the tubal ligation was not available, the method was classified as unknown.

Method Number Percent
Ring 853 17%
Clip 409 8%
Ligation/resection 1923 38%
Coagulation 1605 32%
Other/unknown 256 5%
Total 5046 100%
